Wow. He really has turned into a Republihack. "Let's cripple the consumer economy and shift the tax burden as far down the economic spectrum as possible" is not the kind of "good advice" that's supposed to come from "the Fed"....

Even the "flat tax" is more viable (and less regressive) than the consumption tax.

Absolutely. A flat tax, if applied with complete equality to everyone (and to all income sources), would bring in the money and provide cost-savings in the administration of it that would result, in the end, in more money for the government.

But let's never forget that "more money for the government" is the last thing the Republicans want...unless they're free to spend it on bullets and bombs.
