The real Fair Tax has been around a while, and it's just the opposite of Harmon's definition. Again, he spins and spins and spins. Objections abound from Fair Taxers from around the country in Wed. Journal comments, as here, ripped from the online pages of the Wednesday Journal:
And the latest (11:45 or so) in re: Harmon's "fair tax" from Capitol Fax's Rich Miller:

Madigan one, Harmon nothing?
