Following the latest letter released from former IRS official Lois Lerner, former Governor of New Mexico and 2012 Libertarian party presidential candidate, Gary Johnson, added his two cents regarding the controversy with the Internal Revenue Service in an interview with the New Mexico Watchdog.

As BenSwann.com previously reported, in Lerner’s e-mail she warned her colleagues, writing, “We need to be cautious about what we say in emails.”  This warning from Lerner came in the midst of the controversy over missing e-mails, and was followed by an order from a federal judge, demanding IRS officials explain, under oath, how Lerner’s emails disappeared.

Come on, loss of emails? Give me a break,” said Johnson in response to the Lerner debacle. “If that doesn’t outrage anybody who looks at this, then you’re out to lunch.”

Controversies such as the one involving Lois Lerner are no surprise to Gary Johnson, who said, “To a higher degree or a lesser degree this is what happens when you have bureaucrats in charge that can manipulate the system any way they so choose.”

Imagine life without having to deal with the IRS,” said Johnson, who told the New Mexico Watchdog that his ultimate solution would be to end the IRS altogether.

Let’s abolish the IRS, let’s eliminate income tax, let’s eliminate corporate tax, let’s balance the federal budget and if we need a tax, it can be one federal consumption tax,” Johnson proposed.

The federal consumption tax Johnson has in mind would work from a single point of purchase, taxing people only when they spend money on a certain item or service. “I think a great starting point for a debate and discussion over a national consumption tax is, let’s start with the Fair Tax, legislation that has been written up,” said Johnson.

While some may question whether such a change would ever take place, John said, “I believe it will take place because at some point all these smart people will actually get with it.”

Why would any company, anywhere in the world, locate anywhere but the United States, given zero corporate tax?” said Johnson. “The entire world will change their tax structure to emulate no income tax, no corporate tax, no more filing.
