Bob Conley on Tax Reform

Democratic Senate challenger


Pushes FairTax (national sales tax of 23%)

Bob Conley endorsed the concept of a national sales tax to replace numerous federal income taxes before a small group of Fair Tax Act supporters. Conley called the proposed legislation "the second American Revolution" because he believes it will eliminate the Internal Revenue Service and allow American workers to take home what they actually earn without payroll taxes being withdrawn. The proposed national sales tax would be 23 percent.

"It's time for citizens and workers to take their wages and salaries and put them in their pockets," Conley said. "This will bring back freedom and a level playing field." Conley's Republican opponent, U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham, has not endorsed the Fair Tax, but has said he is not averse to considering it.
