Former Presidential candidate Johnson speaks on FairTax, presidential debates

Our America Initiative and its Honorary Chairman, Libertarian Party 2012 Presidential Nominee Gary Johnson, are offering an update today, July 22, 2014 on current issues and what libertarians are doing about them. Johnson begins an email out today with the IRS scandal plaguing the Obama administration. “Imagine life without having to deal with the IRS,” Johnson told New Mexico Watchdog in an interview just two days after a new development in the IRS story, in which former IRS official Lois Lerner warned colleagues to be careful about what they write in emails amid congressional inquiries. “None of it surprises me. To a higher degree or a lesser degree this is what happens when you have bureaucrats in charge that can manipulate the system any way they so choose. Come on, loss of emails? Give me a break. If that doesn’t outrage anybody who looks at this, then you’re out to lunch.” Johnson is a proponent of the FairTax that would eliminate the IRS and place a consumption tax on new items purchased in the U.S.
