Huckabee Makes Fair Tax Push — Would Tax Pimps, Prostitutes, Drug Dealers

Thursday in Cleveland at the first Fox News Republican presidential debate, former Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-AR) made a push for his Fair Tax, a plan he touted during his last run for president in 2008.

Huckabee said, “One of the reasons Social Security is in trouble is the only funding stream come from people who get a wage. The people who get wages is declining. Most of the income is made by people at the top who get dividends and capital gains. The Fair Tax transforms the process by which we fund Social Security and Medicare because the money paid at consumption is paid by everybody, including illegals, prostitutes,  pimps, drug dealers, everybody free loading off it now.That’s why it ought to be a transformed system.”
