Washington Hears "FairTax!" on Tax Day!

This week, FairTaxers left their mark on Washington.

As Congress returned to work on Monday they received thousands of calls demanding an end to the yearly ritual of Tax Day madness.  A madness that worsens with each tax code change made.  FairTaxers from north to south and east to west asked their elected representatives to immediately pass the FairTax legislation.

In addition, on April 17th, Campaign Manager Cynthia Canevaro and FairTaxers from across our great nation stood tall with Congressman Rob Woodall, Senator Saxby Chambliss and over a dozen co-sponsors of the FairTax bill in the House and Senate in front of the US Capitol!

You can watch the entire press conference here.

Press release picture on Tax Day

Standing in front of FairTax signs, Congressman Woodall stated, "The purpose of our tax code should be to collect revenue to run the government, not use it as a tool to pick winners and losers, manipulate consumer behavior and shape economic outcomes. Our solution takes this destructive tool out of the hands of the federal government and allows every American to become a voluntary taxpayer."

The sponsor of S. 13, Senator Saxby Chambliss noted a sad truth when he said, "Today, as millions of Americans are completing the complicated, painstaking process of filing their taxes, too many of us will be reminded of just how little of our paychecks we actually see under the present tax system."

Also present was a group of FairTax volunteers from Michigan who showed special dedication by traveling for over 12 hours on a bus to show Washington they were not taking "no" for an answer.

As taxpayers, we can clearly see the need to replace our current tax code and Tax Day brings more supporters and resolution to our cause.

As we march onward, we've grateful to everyone for their continuing efforts to transform our nation with the FairTax legislation.

Thank you!

The FairTax in the News

Toward an equitable tax systemFOX News

…The time has come to replace this punitive tax system, which seeks to appropriate a portion of our income with a tax system that collects revenue on positive economic activity only. In that way, legislators would be less inclined to pass laws that inhibit economic growth or penalize success. Their actions would have a direct impact on the amount of revenues generated. 

In July 1999, a conservative congressman from Georgia named John Linder introduced the FairTax proposal (HR 25)…

It offers Americans the option of opting out of taxable activity without inhibiting economic activity. It also fairly distributes the burden of supporting government across everyone who reaps the benefits of our society, everyone who chooses to purchase something new without regard to the source or amount of the customer’s income or other personal information…

Gingrey: ‘The fair tax would ensure that all citizens are treated equally’Examiner.com

…Today, those in Congress who support the FairTax H.R. 25, gathered for a Tax Day press conference in the front of the U.S. Capitol…

After the press conference, Republican Congressman Phil Gingrey of Georgia’s 11th district stated, “Today, I addressed this very issue of tax reform alongside Senators Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isakson and my fellow co-sponsors of H.R. 25: The Fair Tax.”..

“One of the boldest tax reform bills in Congress, the fair tax would ensure that all citizens are treated equally. Our out-of-control tax code must be reformed to stimulate economic growth,” said Gingrey.
