Well this probably sets the FairTax back several years. He was next in line to become Chairman of the Ways and means committe, and without him, we have no way of getting it to the floor. He should have stayed on one more term.
I was on a conference call with Mr. Linder a few months ago. He stated that The Fair Tax is no longer dependent upon the support of any one person because it has reached the point of being viral with the large number of supporters.
I can't help but think he will still advocate The Fair Tax with some of his time and obviously will still have many contacts in Washington D.C.
> I read his announcement and he is going to continue his support of the FairTax. I never doubted that he would. We need to convince him to stay for one more term. Even GOOOH would probably agree with this. He is one of the most honorable men in Congress
I was on a conference with Rep. John Linder tonight and he has been talking to other Reps to take over the sponsership of the FairTax. He is looking for someone who is passionate about the Fairtax as he is. He will talking to a few other and will let us know shortly.
