Why on earth wouldn't the Business Roundtable simply adopt the FairTax proposal [H.R. 25] ? It does away with business income and payroll taxes, gets the gov't OUT of business checkbooks.

Under the FairTax, business is asked to simply collect the 23% consumption tax (or 30% sales tax) in return for reducing costs of compliance, tax lawyers, tax planning, CPA's, bookkeepers, accounting dept's, lost time dickering around with theIRS, etc. ad naseum.

Guess the Roundtable has too many CPA's advising them in order to keep their expertise relevant.
