This is a letter I just received from my congressman, while it was great to get a reply it is VERY non-commital! Looking forward to hearing your comments!
Thank you for contacting me again regarding the "FAIR Tax". I appreciate you taking the time to share your views with me. Thank you for sharing a link to Congressman King's special order.
As I mentioned in my previous correspondence, one of my highest goals is dramatic reform and simplification of the federal tax code. Amerian taxpayers deserve a tax code they can understand. We must replace our current code with one that is simpler, fairer, more uniform, and consistent. You may be interested to learn that I am a co-spsonsor of the Tax Code Termination Act, which would eliminate the current tax code after December 31, 2012. The bill requires that a new, simple and fair federal tax system be approved by Congress by July 4, 2012. You specifically mentioned your support for the FAIR Tax proposal. I am familiar with the FAIR Tax proposal and believe it is an idea that merits careful consideratin. While I am not a member of the House Ways and Means committee, which has jurisdiction over all legislation addressing changes to our tax system, you may be certain that I will keep your support for the FAIR Tax in mind as the full House of Representatives considers tax reform measures.
Again, thank you for taking the time to share your views with me. Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future on any matter of importance to you.
