All #Americansabroad should listen to Steve Hayes of @FairTaxOfficial where he explains the #FAIRTax. Whether you agree or disagree he makes important points and many observations about the role taxation plays in America. Join movement 4 @FairTaxAbroad!
@FairTaxOfficial @FairTaxAbroad Current tax system is complex, incomprehensible, used to punish some and reward others and has expensive compliance and penalty costs. People don't and can't know how much tax they pay. Compliance costs are a "tax on tax". Here is a poster from the Washington, DC Metro (subway). Image
The #FairTax is a simple consumption based tax. Some describe it as a 30% tax on the purchase price. Others describe it as 23% of the total expenditure. If you spend $100 to purchase an item $77 would be the price and $23 tax. Or see it as $77 + 30% of $77 which totals $100.

This morning’s rant will be about Prop 121, how important it is that #workingfamilies understand our role in #taxpolicy and fighting for #fairtax to reach #economicsecurity

CO’s flat income tax rate means the wealthy always pay less in taxes than me & probs you #copolitics
First of all, this is a great ballot guide if you care about economic security and recovery. @BellPolicy nerds out on this stud so we don’t have to. They have produced tons of data throughout the years to show us what it means to thrive or struggle in Denver, & CO.
First, it is a #VOTE NO on prop 121 ya’ll, let’s get into it:

This prop would lower income taxes across the board. But it isn’t what you think it is. We can’t afford to lower taxes, we have to make #fairtax possible by finding ways to make them #equitable

finally got our votes in, Chicago. @trinattrill & i put it off, but it felt nice to hit YES on fair tax & NO on retaining Toomin (& more - see our guide below).

vote ASAP - the covid positivity rate here is steady rising past 7%, & once we get to 8%, more closures are imminent ImageImage
We are not hype about this election but we #votedanyway to #TossToomin & vote yes on a #FairTax

have you voted yet? In Chicago you can vote early at any location & vote at the same time. Need help deciding how to vote?

We made a cheat sheet to make it a little easier for ya! ImageImage
We did research, utilized @injusticewatch, @GoGoGadgetHoe, @BallotReady, & the Girl I Guess guide for Judges. It was TOUGH because there‘s not much public data! You know we’re #tosstoomin but here are a few others.

Some ppl are voting no on all judges which we also endorse. ImageImageImage

Today I’m at the Fair Tax conference at @amnesty - all about getting more transparency in companies’ financial reporting, and ensuring businesses pay their fair share for public services they benefit from. I’ll share notes during day in this thread...
#FairTaxWeek @FairTaxMark
These are some of the businesses accredited for the @FairTaxMark - and I was very proud to see the @weareconvivio bench on this screen alongside Richer Sounds, Timpson, Lush, Coop and more...
The brilliantly plain-speaking CEO of the Fair Tax Mark, Paul Monaghan, is opening the conference. He says that the tax take is going up as a result of clampdowns in recent years, but approx £7bn of tax is still being lost to global companies shifting profits out of the UK...
