There is one thing and one thing only politicians like more than their currently money making, vote buying scheme known as the tax code. And that is their job.
Only through the election of those who support the NRST and the defeat of those opposed to it will it happen. If politicians start seeing anti-NRST politicians losing on election day they will switch to supporters to keep their cushy jobs.
I hate to disagree with you on them loosing their jobs but..do you think little Tommy Dashole misses his job? Nope not one bit! Because he is closer now to power than ever before as he is one of those who greases the palms of those in congress. He actually yields more power now than before-(i'm using him as an example here).
They dont give a rip..they know that as long as they skimm the coffers and give it to the people in their districts they'll be in power for ever and "we the working people" will pay.
Let lawyers in congress and they will pass laws! Why? Because its good for their business! And this tax code is the biggest boondoggle ever.
I've heard this guy and somewhat agree with his theory. HOWEVER if anyone out there believes for one second that prices on anything will go down is sadly mistaken. Margins will go up by the amount of any and all taxes not paid. Shareholders will not have it anyother way - I ain't bashing shareholders, as I am one!
