The Drudge Report says that Republicans will push for the elimination of the IRS at the RNC Convention.
A domestic centerpiece of the Bush/GOP agenda for a second Bush term is getting rid of the Internal Revenue Service, the DRUDGE REPORT has learned.
Ah, now there’s a dream come true. I spend at least 2 days doing my own taxes every year, and I dread it every time. When I ran a small business, I had to guess at what the tax code meant, and my business wasn’t even a complicated one. When I was overseas, I finally had to break down and hire a tax attorney because it was so complicated. Last year, I helped my maid and her neighbor with their tax return – even the EZ form was complex for them.
Now multiply that by 350 million Americans.
The biggest impact we’d see is the cost of many things would go up 20% or so because of the sales tax. Offsetting that would be the complete elimination of the income tax and the bizarre complicated forms.

If this is true, it’s one more reason to vote for Bush this November. All Kerry will be able to do is a) oppose it or b) complain Bush didn’t do it fast enough.
