Are House Republicans Idiots?

My first thought is ….yes….but then I have never trusted the GOP.

But I guess I need to quantify my answer.

It appears that the House GOP has zeroed in on the deficit (something they do every time they are in control but never succeed) and in this era they are at it again.

Their answer to the deficit is to close down the IRS and eliminate the income tax….

Republicans in the House of Representatives will vote on a bill that would abolish the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), eliminate the national income tax and replace it with a national consumption tax.

Fox News Digital has learned that the House will be voting on Georgia Republican Rep. Buddy Carter’s reintroduced Fair Tax Act that aims to reel in the IRS and remove the national income tax, as well as other taxes, and replace them with a single consumption tax.

The vote on the bill was made as part of the deal between House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., and members of the House Freedom Caucus and was pushed forward in his quest for the gavel last week.

“Cosponsoring this Georgia-made legislation was my first act as a Member of Congress and is, fittingly, the first bill I am introducing in the 118th Congress,” Carter said in a press release exclusively obtained by Fox News Digital.

“Instead of adding 87,000 new agents to weaponize the IRS against small business owners and middle America, this bill will eliminate the need for the department entirely by simplifying the tax code with provisions that work for the American people and encourage growth and innovation,” Carter continued.

“Armed, unelected bureaucrats should not have more power over your paycheck than you do,” he added.

“As a former small business owner, I understand the unnecessary burden our failing income tax system has on Americans,” said Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., in a statement. “The Fair Tax Act eliminates the tax code, replaces the income tax with a sales tax, and abolishes the abusive Internal Revenue Service. If enacted, this will invigorate the American taxpayer and help more Americans achieve the American Dream.”

This is not going to work…..the wealthy still get off scott free on taxes…..

I have a few suggestions to fight our deficit…..

1–Reduce defense budget by 1/3

2–Reduce foreign aid by 1/3

3–Design a tax structure that includes all people including corporate income

4–A fee on stock trades over $1 million.

5–A real program that would find and return hidden assets in offshore accounts.

One finally question for Republican voters….

When will Republican voters figure out how badly they’re getting screwed by Republican politicians?

Good question that deserves an immediate answer.

House Republicans are set to vote on the Fair Tax Act introduced by Rep. Earl L. “Buddy” Carter (R-GA) which seeks to eliminate all personal and corporate income taxes, the death tax, gift taxes, and the payroll tax while also eliminating the need for the Internal Revenue Serviceaccording to a release.

What Happened: First introduced toCongress in 1999 by former Georgia Congressman John Linder, the Fair Tax would repeal the current tax code and replace it with a single national consumption tax that “is pro-growth and allows Americans to keep every cent of their hard-earned money.”

“Instead of adding 87,000 new agents to weaponize the IRS against small business owners and middle America, this bill will eliminate the need for the department entirely by simplifying the tax code with provisions that work for the American people and encourage growth and innovation,” said Carter. “Armed, unelected bureaucrats should not have more power over your paycheck than you do.”

The Deal: According to Fox News, which first reported the story, the vote on the bill was made as part of the deal between House Speaker Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), and members of the House Freedom Caucus and was pushed forward in his quest for the position last week.

“As a former small business owner, I understand the unnecessary burden our failing income tax system has on Americans. The Fair Tax Act eliminates the tax code, replaces the income tax with a sales tax, and abolishes the abusive Internal Revenue Service. If enacted, this will invigorate the American taxpayer and help more Americans achieve the American Dream,” said Rep. Jeffrom their mouths is pure horse manuref Duncan, also one of the original co-sponsors of the bill.

Almost every word coming from their mouths is pure horse manure…..and yet there will be cheers for their forward thinking (that is sarcasm in case you missed it)

  1. The answer is to properly tax the rich, and the huge corporations. But politicians get favours and pay-offs, so that never happens.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. The income tax was designed to be temporary. It became permanent instead. Time to get rid of it. It was originally voluntary. Now it is enforced. Time to get rid of it.

    1. I disagree…..as long as everyone helps pay for this society it should remain. Besides a consumption tax would mean less money in people’s pants….but that is another story. chuq
