Your Plans To Pass The FairTax
Last week we asked FairTaxers to “develop a plan for giving
of your time, talent and financial resources.” We recieved many inspiring submissions and we’ve shared a couple below:
Daniel Dyer in
Connecticut wrote about reaching people through the internet:
“My plan is to promote
my latest FairTax video on YouTube, “It's
Not the Rich Who Need the FairTax, It's You. 63 Reasons for the FairTax.”
This newer video
complements my earlier “First,
Why We Need the FairTax” (over 10,000 views)”
Rich Summers will
be educating his community on the FairTax:
“I am currently
putting together a lesson plan to use in seminars that will discuss the Fair
Tax. I am using the Fair Tax document from the Internet as my guide.
I will personally
finance the first seminar locally and collect donations to finance further
seminars. At each seminar I will collect petitions to be presented to
I expect to conduct the
first seminar to coincide with the week of July 4th.”
Who will pass the FairTax? YOU. By your actions and voice we
will see co-sponsors added, the media start to pay attention and Washington
forced to change.
You can send a pre-written message to your Congressman, share posts from our Facebook page, donate to the cause, or get a compelling letter to the editor published like the California State Director, Jim Donnell, did, below.
Whatever you do, you have our thanks!
The FairTax Act In The News

…Pass the Fair Tax, and the minimum wage earner brings home the full $15,080.
They get an additional $2,505 as a reimbursement for the tax paid on the basic
necessities. That’s $17,585 take-home — a 31 percent raise in one year! Yes,
the Fair Tax is a 23 percent national retail sales tax on new goods and
services. According to the experts, the price of every U.S. produced product we
buy is about 22 percent more expensive because companies embed the cost of the
taxes they pay into the price of their products — thereby passing the cost of
corporate tax on to the consumer. Under the Fair Tax, the prices for products
produced in the U.S. should drop an average of 15-18 percent at the wholesale
level because the embedded tax is removed. Add back in the 23 percent national
retail sales tax, and retail prices only go up 5 percent to 8 percent.
So, increase the minimum wage 24 percent over the next three
years and hurt small businesses, or pass the FairTax and create millions of new

FairTax bill would
level playing field while bringing jobs
America works when Americans work. We have driven out of
America millions of jobs over the last 30 years because we can’t compete with
countries with lower costs of doing business. Our wages, benefits, regulations,
taxes, etc. all contribute to driving the cost of doing business up.
Consequently, jobs go elsewhere.
There is a bill in Congress, HR 25, that resurrects America
as arguably the most cost-competitive place to do business in the world, the
FairTax bill. No more federal tax on income. Your gross pay is your take-home
pay. Taxes to fund the government are generated by taxing consumption of new
goods and services.
To help citizens pay this tax on basic goods and services, a
prebate is paid monthly to all legal Americans. No favors for special
interests, everyone is treated the same. Manufacturers worldwide would flock to
the USA to build factories. Good-paying jobs return. Call your Congressman
today and ask him to support the bill.
America works when Americans work.
