Sample Letter to the Editor
Make America Competitive Again
Americans should be concerned about the competitive edge that our tax
system gives foreign manufacturers. We should no longer allow the
income tax to make foreign-produced goods more competitive than our own.
Replacing the income tax with the FairTax, a highly progressive federal
consumption tax, will end this practice and make American products 20%
to 30% more competitive, both at home and abroad. What a break for U.S.
producers and consumers as well! Getting rid of the income tax will
dramatically lower production costs in this country. And competition
will ensure that these cost savings will flow not only to the pockets
of American manufacturers who will be able to create more and
better-paying jobs, but also to the pockets of American consumers who
will be able to buy more, save more, and invest more.
It's time to give American producers and consumers a break by passing
the FairTax into law. I would encourage your readers to visit the
Americans for Fair Taxation website at www.fairtax.org or
