      Excerpt:
      "I'm going to make an exception for one recent mugging. The party sent out an attack
      press release alleging that Republican congressional candidates John Shadegg, Sydney Hay
      and David Schweikert "would raise food prices by 23 percent."

      And how would that be?

      Well, all three have expressed some degree of interest or support for the FAIR Tax, which
      would abolish all income and payroll taxes in favor of a national sales tax.

      Abolishing all income and payroll taxes on producers and workers would, of course,
      dramatically reduce prices. There is an honest disagreement among economists about the
      net, overall effect of the FAIR Tax on prices. But no substantive critic disputes that
      the initial effect will be to lower prices prior to the new sales tax being applied.

      That makes the Democratic Party's assertion that Shadegg, Hay and Schweikert support
      increasing existing food prices by 23 percent more than just a partisan distortion.

      It's thoroughly and shamefully dishonest."
