It seems his only real argument is that FairTax doesn't do enough--but he 
doesn't introduce any cogent arguments as to why it's no better than our 
current form of taxation.

Sure, smaller federal government would be great--but do you honestly 
expect the federal government to vote for a drastically reduced federal 
government? Ha! At least this proposal is a step in the right direction.

They'd probably do what they currently do now with babysitters and tax.
