FairTax Volunteer Spotlight - Tax Day
California volunteer State
Director, Jim Donnell sent us a note about a Tax Day rally at the California
“The FairTax booth was a popular spot. We had over 90 people sign post
cards to be sent off to their representatives in Congress urging them to
support the FairTax. We handed out well over 100 FairTax fliers and handed
out a bunch of FairTax pens. All in all we felt it was a very successful
day. I also had an opportunity to speak to the crowd for about 10 minutes
after which we had people lined up two and three deep wanting more information.
Hearty thanks to Jim and fellow FairTax volunteers John Depue, Frank Wagener, Kenneth
Smith and Maxine Rodowicz for working so hard to make the event happen!
The FairTax In the Media
Bi-partisanship and the tax code – Shreveport
…Obama, Speaker John Boehner
and others all the way down on both sides of the aisle give the same talking
points on the need for comprehensive tax reform. “We need to close loopholes.” “We
need to make it more transparent.” “We need to simplify.”..
The Fair Tax Act is a bill
currently in Congress that would do just that…
Well, if this is so good, why
hasn’t Congress done it?
This goes back to the
bi-partisan effort I started with. Those in leadership have too much invested
in the tax code to let it go easily. They may bicker over many things, but even
when their side is not in power, they can’t let it go hoping that they will
have their turn again. The only two classes that truly exist are the political
elite, and the rest of us. This is why “we the people” no matter our other
issues or disagreements, must be non-partisan on this, and force them to do
what is right.
Isn’t it time you got
Town hall meeting focuses on tax reform – WHIZ
A town hall meeting proposed
the idea that the current tax system is flawed and a tax reform is needed.
The forum debated the
difference between a flat tax and a fair tax. Speakers on both sides agreed
that the forum will hopefully act as a way to change the tax system.
"This is a replacement
for the system that's already there, the federal income tax. What we propose to
do under the fair tax is eliminate the income tax and eliminate the IRS and
replace it with one simple retail sales tax," said Steve Curtis, State
Director with Americans for Fair Tax Ohio…
Curtis adds, "Our
objective is to help people understand just how bad of a situation we're in and
give them an alternative."
