Local volunteer, Allen Moss, asked Ron Maiellaro, Florida FairTax Educational Association District 3 Director, if he could have two of their mini billboards. As you can see, he put them to good use!

The FairTax Grassroots Spotlight
By Marv Kuhn, Volunteer Texas FairTax Director
In 2008 and 2012, we
experienced another series of elections where neither the Presidential or Vice-Presidential
candidates supported the FairTax. In addition, we witnessed numerous
Congressional candidates, both incumbents and challengers, who made public
statements of support but once elected, chose not to formalize their support
through co-sponsorship of HR 25.
The 2014 elections will
soon be upon us. If we do not aggressively pursue co-sponsors now, I fear we
are destined to repeat the 2008 and 2012 experience in 2014 and 2016.
While the upcoming vote
by the Committee on Ways and Means is a critical step on the road to the
FairTax becoming law, without the required majority in both the House and
Senate, and a President willing to sign HR 25 into law, the FairTax faces an
That is why I have aggressively
pursued a co-sponsor strategy here in the great state of Texas.
In the event a Texas Representative
or Senator runs for President or Vice-President and wins – they will carry
their FairTax support into the oval office. While we have a long way to go for
a clean sweep, I am proud to report that in Texas we have 16 co-sponsors of HR
25 in the House, including 2 members of the Committee on Ways and Means, and 2
co-sponsors of S 122 in the Senate.
Over the past few years
several grassroots based organizations, including the Tea Party Patriots, have
emerged as a major influencers in Texas elections and nationwide. In
almost every case, when a candidate visits their members, they ask them what
tax plan they support. In the case of the Tea Party Patriots, their members
generally say about 50-50 - FairTax vs. a flat income tax.
FairTax America, we have a problem and an
The problem: a huge education
hurdle with major national grassroots organizations. As result, I strongly
encourage everyone who wants to see the FairTax become law to immediately and
aggressively begin making FairTax presentations to local chapters of major
grassroots organizations, including Tea Party Patriots, in your hometown. I
submit to you that this should be one of your highest priorities as an advocate
of the FairTax Plan.
I have spent the past
three weeks talking to these organizations’ headquarters and consistently hear
that they will adopt the FairTax if enough of their local chapters ask
headquarters to do it.
I invite you to join me,
right now, in this most critical education endeavor. Don’t wait another minute.
Call and get on the presentation agenda for the next meeting of these local
At the conclusion of your
presentation, ask the audience to vote on which tax reform plan they favor.
Then ask the local chapter head to immediately call and write their national headquarters
to convey their chapters support for the FairTax.
The ball is in our court!
The FairTax Act In The Media
Bradley Byrne uses
half-truth approach to Fair Tax – AL.com
In an early August candidate forum and more recently on a
local radio show, candidate Bradley Byrne grossly mislead voters by stating
that "his opponent supports the Fair Tax which is a 23% tax increase and
that it hurts the elderly".
The only truth in his statement is that his opponent
supports it. Candidate Byrne failed to inform the electorate that under
the Fair Tax Plan, all income and payroll tax withholding is eliminated and all
legal families will be able to consume the basic necessities of life free of
tax due to the unique "prebate" provision in the Fair Tax
He also failed to say that the Fair Tax totally replaces all
individual and corporate taxes with a single rate consumption tax collected on
new goods and services at retail sales counters while relieving every legal
resident from taxes on the basic necessities of life.
Repeatedly, studies have shown that all income groups are
better off under the Fair Tax, including the elderly. Be careful of
candidates telling half truths. I know the candidate understands the Fair
Tax concepts as I personally explained it to him in a 50 minute session in late

Congress should OK
FairTax to get rid of IRS – The
On Sept. 25, Rep. Rob Woodall sent a letter to FairTax
volunteers stating the House Ways and Means Committee will vote on the FairTax
for the first time in history. This is a historic event for those who have
worked so long for freedom. During the shutdown the IRS was 91 percent shut
down. The FairTax would close it for good.
The movie "Unfair" will detail abuses of
power and expose the IRS as a blatantly unfair and corrupt entity. The IRS has
vast power and has the capability to close a business or put you in jail. The
IRS invades our homes, our employers, our banks, our churches, and charities…
With 81 legislators signed onto the FairTax Act of 2013,
prospects for passage look good.
