I am listening to Huckabee give his speech. He says "when I am president, I really am looking forward to nailing the going out of bussiness sign to the door of the IRS." He's referring to his tax plan, the so called "Fairtax" or national sales tax. Many advocates of this tax claim it is preferable to our existing tax system because it wouldn't require an IRS. Obviously, this is incorrect, you would still need a service in charge of taxes.
People talk about Huckabee's religious extremism, but his economic extremism bears mentioning.
