FAIR TAX REPRESENTATIVE INVITED TO TESTIFY
JOINT ECONOMIC COMMITTEE
Americans for Fair Taxation (AFFT) has been invited to testify at a Joint Economic Committee hearing on
“How U.S. Tax Policy Affects Business Investment and Job Creation” at 10 a.m., Thursday, November 17.
AFT Chairman Leo Linbeck Jr. said a letter of invitation to testify before the committee was sent by JEC Vice
Chairman Kevin Brady (R-Texas).
Economist Dan Mastromarco will testify on behalf of AFFT.
“We welcome the opportunity to discuss the FairTax proposal with members of Congress,” Linbeck said.
“The FairTax would be the single best law that Congress could pass to create jobs and give our economy a permanent boost.
“We also would like to discredit the misplaced criticism that a national sales tax like the FairTax would
unfairly impact middle class families.
“In fact, the FairTax specifically ‘untaxes’ the poor and lowers middle class tax burdens while allowing every wage earner to take home paychecks without federal withholding or payroll taxes deducted.
“We look forward to a fair hearing in the Congress where we will have the opportunity to describe the many
benefits of FairTax to the informed members of the Joint Economic Committee and
answer any questions.”
Americans For Fair Taxation was formed
in 1995. It is a nonprofit, nonpartisan, grassroots organization solely
dedicated to replacing the current tax system with a progressive national
retail sales tax, a “prebate” to ensure no American pays federal taxes on
spending up to the poverty level, dollar-for-dollar federal revenue neutrality,
and, through companion legislation, the repeal of the 16th Amendment.
