Many times, when I'm in a discussion about the FairTax, people say that they have more important - or more urgent - things to be concerned with. I guess they don't understand all the things that the FairTax will affect. I usually ask them what's more important...jobs? The economy? The deficit? And then I try to explain how the FairTax will imrpove the employment situation, the economy, etc., thereby leaving time to focus on other issues. I'd like to know if others have run into this objection and how you handle it.
Last night at our Tea Party meeting, our leader lamented for an extended time about our 2-1/2 year attempt to acheive 501c4 status (still not approved), and the difficulties with the IRS in the pursuit. Obviously, the FairTax would solve that problem, but most people believe that the tax-exempt status is more urgent than getting the FairTax passed. I wanna slap 'em! But I'm sure there's a better way!
