71 Wins And Counting

Great news!

FairTaxers in Kentucky’s 4th district are celebrating their Congressman becoming the 71st co-sponsor of the FairTax legislation. Congressman Thomas Massie signed onto HR 25 this week due to relentless communications from FairTax supporters and we thank him for listening to his constituents.

Congressman, welcome to the solution to our tax code and the out of control IRS.

But this was the second ‘win’ for the FairTax campaign just this week!

The first was during a meeting with Congressman Dave Camp, Chairman of the Committee on Ways and Means. A FairTax supporter handed him a copy of a Washington Examiner op-ed written by Cindy Canevaro, Executive Director of FairTax.org.

The Congressman looked at the article then said, “Yes, I’ve seen this.”

We’re getting through to him!

There are many reasons the FairTax may be on Congressman Camp’s mind. It might be the FairTax billboards in his district, thousands of contacts his office has had with FairTaxers, or even the comments on his committee’s page. All are signs the FairTax campaign is alive and well - and demanding Congress pay attention.

All this happened because FairTax supporters insisted their voice be heard.

However, the most impressive public activism might be the Committee on Ways and Means’ Facebook page, where you’ll see person after person entreating the Committee and Chairman Camp to support the FairTax legislation. In fact, FairTaxers make up the majority of comments on the page!

Here are some examples of comments posted in the last week:

Tony Leach: Want to pass a tax reform plan that would 'SOLVE' American issues and empower the people to live their lives as they choose while still funding the government? Then pass The FairTax and do it right. But politics trumps what's right and that is why government is the sorry sack it is...but America keeps voting for it so you keep playing politics.

Richard Arnold: I hope you're explaining the FairTax bills to these folks and how you are going to pass them in Congress. http://www.fairtax.org/

Francine Stirling: FairTax.org, what is your problem. The law is ready to go. Give it a fair shake and watch people jump on the wagon. NO IRS. That is what we all want.

Dennis MartinAsk them how replacing the income tax code with a national retail sales tax would benefit them...it's called the FairTax and you're sitting on the legislation that would spur job growth, domestic manufacturing, and capital infusion into our economy.

Glenn J. Shapiro: Do not attempt to "reform" the tax code. Scrap it and REPLACE it with the Fair Tax. Why is that not even considered?

Scott David Murphy: Here is an idea, why don’t you scrape our current system and go with a FairTax.org? 

Richard Wettermann: I've been advocating the FairTax for over 10 years now. I have yet to see a better solution. It will revolutionize our country and economy for the next 100 years with unprecedented growth and prosperity.

John Pierce: The FairTax, already researched. Stop wasting time, get this bill out on the floor and you will see the overwhelming support from we the voter and taxpayer.

Thelma WrightThe FairTax bills, H.R25 & S.122, are already in congress and has 70 co-sponsors. The bill takes away all the decision-making that politicians appear to do. Come on politicians and do the correct thing. Stand up for the American People. They need jobs and the Job Producers need the FAIRTAX.

Have you joined these Americans who are publically demanding that their Washington representatives support the FairTax like these FairTaxers?

Look up your Representative’s contact information, find their Facebook page and show up at their town hall meetings. Give them no rest.

As Cindy said last week, “If your representative(s) gives you bloated, canned-ham responses or dismisses your concerns, then you have a job to do — find a new representative who understands and respects the will of the people.”

The 71 cosponsors of HR 25 are a great start, but we have many more victories to come.

It will take you and the people you tell about the FairTax legislation to convince the rest of Congress that we must be heard.

As Ray Batts posted on the Committee on Ways and Means page, “FairTax now. FairTax tomorrow. FairTax forever.”

The FairTax Act In The Media 

Replace the IRS with the Fair TaxWashington Examiner

…Congress has a choice. They have before them “The FairTax Act of 2013.”

They can continue allowing the IRS to threaten, harass and destroy individuals and organizations, or they can implement a comprehensive tax replacement plan that returns our nation’s system of taxation to what our founding fathers originally envisioned. They can enact the FairTax Plan.

Your senators and representatives are supposed to represent the will of the people who elected them. Make sure that you communicate to all your elected officials exactly where you stand on tax reform…

Support the FairTaxReedsburg Times-Press

Help us eliminate the IRS by passing the FairTax. Recent positive developments for the FairTax include: all of Alaska’s and all of Kansas’ federal legislators have signed on as co-sponsors of The FairTax Act of 2013. The House bill is H. R. 25 while the Senate bill is S. 122. Rep. Bridenstine (R-OK) recently held a town hall meeting where 1,300 FairTax supporters rallied for his speech on tax reform. South Carolina hopes to pass Bill 3116, a state FairTax Act. NC state senator Bob Rucho said, “We’ll go to zero with the income tax.”
