Whatever happened to tax cuts?

David Weigel calls the FairTax idea promoted by Mike Huckabee "glib" ("Whatever Happened to Tax Cuts ?," March). I believe the FairTax was the only idea Huckabee had going for him in the race. It is not just some passing thought that was thrown out for political reasons. The FairTax is backed by millions of grassroots participants and very prominent economists. In my humble opinion, the FairTax, along with the repeal of Social Security and Medicare, is the only reform that can set us up for enough economic growth to get us out of the impending fiscal disaster in the national debt level.

Please do not put the FairTax into the category of some fly-by-night political scheme.
