John Linder re-introduces the FairTax
In the 109th Congress, the Fair Tax Act of 2005 had 63 co-sponsors in the House and Senate, far more than any other tax reform bill. When the new Congress convened in the beginning of January, all the legislation of the past two years expired (with the exception of treaties), clearing the slates of co-sponsors as well, and a new legislative year began.

If your representative has not yet co-sponsored, call and tell them why they should!
