The FairTax Chronicles Launched!
This week, Americans For Fair
Taxation® launched a new fundraising program, the FairTax® Chronicles. This
fundraising initiative was selected for several reasons, including the fact
that non-profit organizations have been hit particularly hard during these very
difficult economic times.
FairTax supporters are extremely generous and we are deeply
grateful for all of your support. Instead of continuing to ask FairTax
supporters to dig deeper and deeper, we made the decision to work with third
party sponsors who are willing to pay AFFT for the opportunity to forward
messages that are important to them, and which we hope will be of interest to
On July 17, we sent an e-mail
explaining the purpose behind our decision to accept sponsored messages. Unfortunately, it appears that some of those e-mails
may have gone into your spam folders or may not have been opened and read. This resulted in some confusion when the
first FairTax Chronicle sponsored message arrived.

never see your name or any information about you unless you choose to
communicate directly with them.
A few of you inquired
if Congressman West, the subject of our first third party sponsored message, is
a co-sponsor of the FairTax. At this
time, he is a co-sponsor of the pending Flat Tax legislation, H.R. 1040. Congressman West has, however, publicly
stated on numerous occasions that he is supportive of the FairTax and sees the
Flat Tax “as a bridge mechanism to get to the FairTax.” You can hear him in his own words here.
Additionally, you might be interested to know that six of the ten H.R
1040 co-sponsors are also co-sponsors of H.R. 25, the FairTax Act of 2011. We
are working to convince all members of Congress to solely support the FairTax
and recognize that no “bridge” is necessary. The FairTax has been properly
vetted for over 15 years and as a result, is 'shovel ready' for implementation now.
