An Enemy of Income Tax Reform: The “Business Transfer Tax” (a/k/a “Business Activity Tax” and “Business Flat Tax”)
The “Business-Transfer Tax” in all its forms is a proposal for a dual-tax system, to have a value-added tax built upon a rejiggered income tax.

WASHINGTON — “Having an independent investigation on Benghazi means not having the Justice Department interfering in any way” declared Congressman Steve Stockman (R-TX), in an exclusive interview with SFPPR News & Analysis. Stockman has joined a growing list of Republicans calling for an independent, bi-partisan Special Select Committee to investigate the remaining questions surrounding the terrorist attack of September 11, 2012 in Benghazi, Libya.
