Very interesting article. It's not surprising that politicians would try to hijack the Tea Party movement. Hopefully most of the Tea Party supporters are smart enough to see through this. What is important is that people vote on principals and not name recognition & personality. I don't believe anything a carreer politician has to say. Anyway, I believe the best opportunity the FairTax supporters have to get our tax reform passed is to focus on GOOOH. I just don't know that 9-12, Tea Party or CPAC will ever fully embrace the FairTax. The sad thing is that if (& when) we are successful and the FairTax turns this country around, these Bozos are going to claim they've always supported the FairTax.
