"The 11% figure had to be with the tax only on items presently taxed. If it is written similar to HR25 it would remain at the same rate as now and replace all but the O&G monies and the gasoline and sin taxes."
John, Glad to see another leader on this site. More are joining each day!
I am locating all the members in Tennessee and I also have a mailing list of members in Memphis, where I am the District Director. My plan is to get together a couple of more of us and make appointments to speak at the area universities and community colleges about the Fairtax and how it will really help out the young people, who really are going to be hurt by boomer retirements and drawing on Medicare/Medicaid. The Fairtax will change taxation funding for these massive entitlement programs from a system that is woefully hampered by demographics to one that is consumption based. I think that if we emphasize this at universities and colleges all over the states, the young will Get It. After all, with the present system and todays impending massive tax increases coming down, it is the young who will be most damaged if our governing representatives do NOT change their ways and see what's coming down the pike.
Secondly, we all need to call our representative in the House And the Senate and urge these people to sponsor John Linder's bill.
These are the major efforts we can all be engaged in, and if leadership begins to lead, make calls, present presentations at various places, we can get the word out!
