Cosponsor 63 And A Volunteer Spotlight
Please welcome the 63rd FairTax® co-sponsor of HR 25! Congressman Rodney Alexander
represents Louisiana's 5th district and officially signed onto the FairTax
legislation earlier this week.
This latest cosponsor was a major victory for one grassroots
activist who refused to accept, “no” as a final answer.
Douglas Opbroek, Louisiana volunteer State Director, wants
every FairTaxer to know that regular contact with Congressional offices, and
especially establishing a relationship with the Representative’s tax aide, is key
success factor for every FairTax supporter. “Weekly calls to Congressman
Alexander showed his staff that the FairTax was extremely important and moved
them to take the next step to co-sponsor the FairTax bill.”
Have you seen this link with all the House FairTax cosponsors?
It’s more proof that you are making a difference. Every call, letter, Facebook
post, email and news article pushes us ever closer to defeating Washington
special interests, giving Americans their paycheck back and liberating our
economy from the shackles of the income tax.
Thank you for standing with us!
The FairTax Act In The News
Fair Tax Act would
help root out corruption – The
…This is how entrenched politicians maintain their hold on
power. They manipulate the tax code to reward those contributing to their
re-election campaigns. Without the income tax, they would not have this tool to
play the “scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours” game.
There is a bill in Congress that
would rectify this anti-virtuous system. It is the Fair Tax Act. It takes
taxation out of the hands of politicians. We must eliminate this corrupt system
we have in place before we are completely ruined. Another principle from long
ago says, “Righteousness exalts a nation; but sin is a reproach to any people.”

Tell Kind to support
Fair Tax concept - Courier-Life
This year, we observe the 100th anniversary of the income tax
(the 16th Amendment). In 1913, only a very small percentage of wage earners
were subject to the tax. As time has gone by, practically all of us have come
under expanded provisions, including withholding and payroll taxes.
What started so innocuously in 1913 has become a dead weight
on our economy. President John F. Kennedy said, “the largest single barrier to
full employment of our manpower ... and to a higher rate of economic growth, is
federal income taxes.”
In an era of sluggish economic activity and depressed
federal revenues, Congress is turning a critical eye to the income tax. Right
now we have several “fixes” vying for the spotlight, including tweaking the
current system, various flat tax plans, VATs and the Fair Tax…
Your representative, Ron Kind, has a critical role to play
in these discussions, sitting as he does on the House Ways and Means Committee,
where all tax reform must start. Ask him to support the Fair Tax and report it
out of committee for congressional debate.
