Book Review: The Fair Tax Book

The Fair Tax has made waves in Washington, but there aren't many people talking about it as an alternative to the Income Tax.

I go through some of the points in the book in the video below, but you have to read it for yourself! Check out my video and then let me know what you think once you read the book!

So watch this video and go read the book. Then, tell me what you think!

As you read his book you'll see why this is the case. Watch the video below to see what I mean!
