GO FAIRTAX GO!

Our current economic crisis will not be solved through tax increases or massive government spending. In these tough times, we need an innovative solution on Capitol Hill: the FairTax.
The FairTax is the best and most effective way to encourage business growth and positive, long-term economic performance. Enacting the FairTax would usher in a new period of American economic growth, create new jobs across the country and give American citizens more control over their own paychecks.
On Tuesday, March 17, several of my House colleagues and I will spend an hour on the House floor discussing the merits of the FairTax and sharing its positive message with CSPAN viewers.
Our goal is to educate and inform more Americans about the FairTax and how it can help American workers and businesses. Millions of Americans have either never heard of the FairTax or do not know enough about it, but as more people hear about the FairTax, support grows.
My hope is that this hour and similar opportunities in the future will add to the groundswell of national FairTax support. I spent 28 years running my own construction business, and I remember thinking that if I was ever in a position to help dismantle the IRS, I would do everything I could to make that happen.
Right now we need the FairTax not only because our federal tax system is broken beyond repair, but because it will help unemployed Americans find new jobs and help families pay their bills. Now is the time to position the FairTax in the center of the ongoing economic debate in Congress, the White House and throughout America.
