Federal Taxes – Fair Tax

FairTax – “Because Once you Understand it. You’ll Demand it.”

On January 22, 2021, Milam signed the FairTax Pledge, leaving Dan Crenshaw the only US House Texas District 2 candidate to not sign the pledge.  Milam supports and believes, The FairTax plan is the first step to eliminate the IRS and repeal the 16th Amendment which grants the federal government the power to tax the citizens based on income.

Under the current progressive income tax system, individuals or families are penalized for making more money, while others take advantage of various loopholes to lessen their contribution or to completely avoid paying taxes altogether.  The FairTax is a national consumption or sales taxes meaning taxes are collected on the things which are purchased and not based on your income. It is an everyone pays system where loopholes are eliminated and means that those living here and foreign visitors are all paying into the system.

 

The results of implementing the FairTax over the current income tax, will increase the tax base by an estimated 100 million*  and reduce the *Effective Tax Rate for individuals and families which means more of your paycheck in your pocket.  Part of the plan to relieve the tax burden on purchase of necessities for families and individuals will be prebate checks provided each month. For example a family of 4 would receive approximately *$7300+ annually in prebate dollars.

US Economy

The federal government has spent the United States into a position where we no longer have economic leverage to benefit the people.  The government is freely printing and spending money with no regard to a balanced budget or the devaluation of the US Dollar. We are borrowing against money that does not exist and driving inflation higher.  Higher inflation impacts everyone from all social classes, but it will be the lower and middle class that will feel these effects the most.

The federal printing of money would not be as large an issue, if in fact, we were matching it with products created and built here on US soil. It is a reckless policy to get rid of the American Manufactured, American Built, American Owned – Made In The USA, by American citizens, for American companies.

We, as a nation, are no longer producing as many products as we once did.  A large percentage of our manufacturing jobs have been reduced or eliminated as more and more items are produced in China and other foreign nations. Many of whom are not good partners politically or economically for the United States. We must ensure the countries we engage in trade with and how we engage in trade with them, including tariffs on imports, is in the best interest of the United States and it’s citizens.   We must continue with President Trump’s message of America First.

Beyond just the manufacturing, we are also outsourcing many of our service jobs, largely in Information Technology (IT) and Customer Service.  Over the past couple of decades more and more of these types of positions have gone overseas or off-shore.  We are weakening and leaving ourselves vulnerable as a society with our data being exposed to unknown entities.  American Served or American Built should equally apply to the service, and virtual or digital world as much as it does the physical one.

The only way to get us out of the insurmountable debt that we are under is to bring back manufacturing and our service industry jobs, which would include tax breaks for companies – large and small, from corporations to the mom-and-pops. These tax breaks would enable companies to expand and invest more, to hire more workers and at better wages.  With more of the nation back at work and a decrease in foreign labor and parts dependency, the US economy will flourish and in turn will result in more tax dollars flowing in, not due to increasing taxes on individuals or companies but because there would be more avenues of tax dollars coming in.

 

Election Integrity

Election Integrity

We saw in this last election numerous examples where the results were challenged.  The citizens of this country deserve to have faith in our voting systems, election process and in our elected officials.  No matter how we do it, we have to understand that any type of election system will fail over time and we should work to taking measures to ensure confidence and integrity in our election results.

I support having a 24 hour election day as we traditionally have done until recent years and immediately followed by a forensic auditing process.  And I would propose that individual citizens from the local area are part of overseeing this audit process.  Individuals should be representative of the same local area and could potentially be randomly chosen in a similar manner to how a jury is selected.

But before we can get to that point we must close our borders to those coming into this country illegally and ensure that only living, verified citizens are given the opportunity to vote on elected officials and policies. If getting some kind of state or national ID is too difficult or expensive for some individuals, then this is what needs to be addressed not eliminating the requirement of showing valid US identification.

Every legal citizen, born or naturalized, should have the same opportunities to vote in local, state, and federal elections, but when those who are here illegally are afforded the same influence, it diminishes the voice of each of us as legal citizens.  Those of us, who follow the law and play by the rules, who pay into the system, WE ALL LOSE – when those who break the law are not only given the same or at times more benefit from the system are also granted right to vote on policy and elect officials.

I whole-heartedly believe that every vote should and must count — from our military serving here to overseas, from our elderly to our younger  generations, from every economic status — we all as citizens have a right to cast a single vote.

Let’s ensure that EVERY LEGAL, US CITIZEN VOTE COUNTS equally.
