Federal sales tax in place of income tax makes sense to reader

In reference to the Brian Heacock letter of July 28, I would not vote for Michele Bachmann, however, I do agree with him on the federal sales tax in place of income tax.

I would go one step further and have a state sales tax to replace the Minnesota income tax. Does anyone know how much the present tax system costs to implement, collect and operate?

The sales tax system would be very difficult to get passed because most of the legislators are very wealthy and find the loop holes they have created.  With the sales tax systems everyone pays when they buy.  What a novel idea. — Gerald E. Davis, Princeton
