Why not? We just need to get the right people behind a fair tax bill. If the majority of the people vote for it, it will happen. Somehow someone got same sex marriage and smoking dope legal. It can be done we just need someone to take the bull by the horns and get it done.

It was already mentioned that we all love our congressman and keep sending them back to DC. Then they can get changes made to the codes if you have enough money. That power and money does not exist in the Fair Tax. That's why it will never happen. I hope I am wrong.

In 2007 Texas lawmakers imposed a $5 tax on establishments that host live nude shows and also allow alcohol consumption on their premises. Since strip clubs are the businesses that are affected by it, the tax was nicknamed the "pole tax". The revenue from the tax goes to help help sexual assault victims and provide health insurance for the poor. The tax was challenged in the Texas Supreme Court on First Amendment grounds, but was upheld in 2011. :lol2: :lol:
