Appearing on BizRadio (Houston, Texas), Libertarian Party presidential candidate Bob Barr told host Daniel Frishberg on â€œThe Money Man Reportâ€ that he sees a tremendous opportunity for change in the United Statesâ€™ government and economic system.
Asked for his position on the IRS and the Fair Tax, Barr responded that the real issue is getting a handle on federal spending, ceasing federal intervention in the economy, and relinquishing federal responsibilities in social services. In his opinion, once these issues are dealt with, we can tackle the tax system. â€œIf you donâ€™t get a handle on federal spending, no matter what system of taxation you wind up withâ€¦ it is going to be taking too much of peopleâ€™s money,â€ Mr. Barr said.
