Tax Day Message from Rep. Woodall

We have big plans to Storm the Hill in Washington on April 16 and ask you to stand with FairTax sponsor, Representative Rob Woodall, on Tax Day, April 17. Those event details are below.

Rep Rob Woodall Congressman Rob Woodall, GA-07

Real reform requires real political courage.  Next Tuesday, I will proudly stand shoulder-to-shoulder in front of the United States Capitol with other members of Congress who care more about the next generation than they do about the next election.  We will gather there in front of the Capitol to make our strong support of the FairTax known to all.

I know that many of you will have traveled hundreds of miles in your community and to the event in Washington to bring the FairTax to the doorstep of every family and politician in America.  For that, I am grateful.  Even if you won’t be with us in person on Tuesday, you will be with us in spirit, and I urge you to continue to make your voice heard.  Make no mistake—the American people are still in charge of America. Every phone call that you make and every email that you send brings us one step closer to passing the FairTax and reclaiming our freedom from an overbearing tax code that has put its boot on the throat of every job creator, every consumer, and every taxpaying American for far too long now.  It only takes a few minutes out of your day to contact your representatives, which doesn’t seem like much when you compare it to the twelve hours each year it takes the average American to file their tax returns.

The good news is that everyone in Washington—from the White House to the Speaker of the House—is talking about fundamental tax reform these days.  Now is the time to take advantage of this momentum by making sure the FairTax continues to be a key part of their conversation.  That’s why I need you—more than ever—to stay engaged, stay active, and help us do what Washington insiders tell us can’t be done.  We must unleash America’s true economic potential and reclaim the freedoms that have been pilfered, obscured, and weakened by our hopelessly broken tax code.  We have to pass the FairTax, and I need your help to persuade Congress and the nation.

Thank you all for your continued commitment to the FairTax and to freedom.  We are partners in this effort to save freedom and save the American economy. Together, I know that we can succeed.

It's High Noon for the FairTax on April 16

On Monday, April 16, 2012, we are joining with our friends at Fair Tax Nation for a virtual “Storm the Hill.” We’re asking FairTaxers everywhere to call their U.S. Representative and Senator at 12:00 noon eastern and tell them why you want their support for H.R. 25 / S. 13 “The FairTax Act.” Send them a tweet – write a comment on their Facebook page.  Make sure your voice is heard and invite your friends to the Facebook event.

Click here to find your Congressman's contact information. All 435 Congressmen need to hear from Americans demanding this horrible tax code be replaced NOW with the FairTax.

Take action for the FairTax at high noon!

Stand Tall with Rob Woodall on April 17

On Tuesday, April 17, 2012, Representative Rob Woodall (R-GA and FairTax Sponsor in the House of Representatives) is hosting a press conference outside the capitol at approximately 1:00 pm eastern.  He is inviting members of Congress who support the FairTax and all FairTax supporters who are able come join him in support of the FairTax.

Stand tall with Congressman Woodall in Washington! Email politics@fairtax.org if you can make it to DC.

Florida FairTax Educational Association - Mobile Command Cen

FairTax District Director, Rudy Treml, writes: “I am pleased to announce that the Florida FairTax Educational Association in Florida now has a Mobile Command Center which will serve as a FairTax communication and meeting mobile platform in Florida during the forthcoming national elections.

This vehicle gives us a mobile place to meet with both politicians and FairTax supporters at designated events. The Mobile Command Center is owned and operated by our outstanding FairTax District Directors Nick and Barbara Rudelic who currently lead the FairTax efforts in Marion, Sumter, and Lake Counties in Florida with oversight for The Villages, the largest retirement community in the USA , which spans all three of these counties."

The FairTax in the News

What our economy needs is the FairTax billPost Bulletin

What's needed is the FairTax. The FairTax bill has been held captive in the House Ways and Means Committee since 1999. Whenever we send letters, we are usually answered with polite, boilerplate form letters that border on impertinence.

To the 76 members of Congress who have cosponsored HR25 and S13, consider yourselves exempt from this message. To the rest of you, ignorance of the FairTax bill is inexcusable after $23 million worth of research and countless pleadings from your "employers" from around the country.

Why do you refuse to deal forthrightly with the FairTax? If you are serious about bringing back jobs, and the "made in USA" label, you can redeem your poor rating, by the immediate passage of the FairTax bill.
