To the Editor:
The "fair tax" plan is anything but. If you read the proposed amendment all it says that there would be a graduated rate. Once, if enacted, all it would require is a simple majority vote in both houses. And we all know the Democrats love to raise taxes. That is why I am opposed to it.
I would reconsider my opposition if 1) a serious effort was made to cut spending. This has not been done. 2) The rates and steps are set in the amendment or add a condition that it would take a three-fifths vote in both houses to pass any income tax increase.
