Republicans in the House of Representatives will follow through on a promise and will vote on a bill that would abolish the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and eliminate the national income tax.
The House will vote on Georgia Republican Rep. Buddy Carter’s reintroduced Fair Tax Act because it was part of the deal between House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., and members of the House Freedom Caucus to give Kevin the gavel
Carter said: “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. 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.
“Armed, unelected bureaucrats should not have more power over your paycheck than you do.”
Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C. said:
“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.”
“I support the Fair Tax because it simplifies our tax code,” said Rep. Bob Good, R-Va.
“This transforms the U.S. tax code from a mandatory, progressive, and convoluted system to a fully transparent and unbiased system which does away with the IRS as we know it.
“It is good for our economy because it encourages work, savings, and investment. Thank you to my colleague Rep. Buddy Carter for leading this effort to simplify the system for American taxpayers.”
Rep. Kat Cammack, R-Fla said:
“I’m very proud to once again co-sponsor the FairTax (sic) Act.
“We’ve seen a continued growth of the IRS and a persistent punishment of hardworking Americans via the tax code.
“What we’re calling for is a simplified and fair code that works for all, not just some.
“I urge my colleagues to support this commonsense legislation that fights back against the weaponization of the IRS and stops punishing those who work hard to succeed.”
