You Called Them Out!
By now, most FairTaxers know exciting things are on the
horizon for 2014 as the FairTax continues its historic advance into
Washington’s legislative process.
Due to your insistence, seventy four Members of Congress
have already signed onto HR 25 and nine Senators now officially support S 122. This
is more than ever before!
Even some Representatives who have not cosponsored the legislation have agreed to host FairTax debates in their districts!
The Joint Committee on Taxation is also in the process of
scoring the FairTax legislation - another encouraging sign showing that we are being taken seriously in
This brings us to the committee where the FairTax
legislation now sits in the House: The Committee on Ways and Means. For the full House to consider the FairTax, HR 25 must win a majority vote in this committee.
This is why the
FairTax legislation being promised a Committee vote is a historic opportunity!
Now the Committee on Ways and Means has a choice to make:
They can either tinker with the current system and call it major reform or represent
the will of the people who elected them and enact HR 25, The FairTax Act,
freeing us from the bondage of an out-of-control IRS and a tax code that is fast
approaching 100,000 pages.
FairTax activists are taking action in this critical time by demanding
the Committee on Ways and Means pass true tax reform. Below, we wanted to share
some of the best comments from their Facebook page:
Mark N: Quit talking
about it and do something. You know Fair Tax is the solution. Just do it.
Joe G: Insanity =
doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome . Pass The
Rod C: The tax code
has been "simplified" thousands of times, which just add to the
complexity of the behemoth tax code.. Taxing "income" is
counter-productive (as any person with an understanding of economics would
know). Pass the FairTax... tax consumption... everyone pays, it is transparent
(everyone knows exactly what they are paying, when they pay it), and it is
James D: Remove the
Federal Corruption. Repeal the 16th Amendment. Remove the IRS. Give US a
FairTax HR 25.
John N: Sir, the
solution to your question sits in committee waiting to be voted on. YOU keep it
suppressed. Free the FairTax Act. www.FairTax.org
Cory H: Pass the
FairTax if you want to make a difference and significantly change things in the
US for the better. If you prefer that nobody will know or care what you did
after your term ends, sure go ahead and just tweak the existing broken system a
little... But what a waste of a rare opportunity you have within your grasp.
These are only a few of the hundreds of FairTax comments seen by the
Committee on Ways and Means. They have clear evidence that the American people are fed up with
years of Washington making the tax code worse with every ‘reform!’
With the Committee vote
upcoming, and Congress currently at home for recess, every FairTax supporter
should make their voice heard. This coming week, remind Washington that We the
People demand true tax reform: The FairTax.

When you contact their offices, remember what Rod told the Committee: This tax
code has been "fixed" so many times it has grown into a monster that
is not fixable. Stop taxing "income". Pass the FairTax and watch our
