Bartlett on Fair Tax, fair enough 

I have tried often to explain Fair Tax to people and why it's too good to be true. Bruce Bartlett has a new post that does a much better job. Mike Moffatt (whom I thank for the link) asks the right question: Any revenue neutral tax change creates both winners and losers. The question is, who are they? Bartlett answers: most of us making over $30k.

UPDATE (1/7): The Tax Foundation blog has linked a set of articles on Fair Tax. See also this discussion by Justin Fox.
