Fairborn FairTax had their meeting last night.  It was the biggest crowd we have had for a long time.  Also, had new members.  Frank Gilbert had a lot of good information.

The Dayton Mall FairTax will be at the Centerville, OH 4th of July Parade working Main Street.  If you live in the area we could use your help.

Boy, it has been a long time since I have been here!  Yesterday the Tea Party went to Washington D.C.  It was put together quickly.  But the crowd showed up.  CSPAN-3 covered this.  Did you go or see it?  We need to get active.  This is the best time we have ever had to get the FairTax Passed.  Contact your friends and call your congressmen.  FairTax is the best way to get rid of the IRS.  The flat tax and 9-9-9 will still have the IRS.  Tell everyone!

It is not suprising that FairTax has not been passed. 

 Someone put this website up for us to communicate. Are you using it?

 Someone put the MAP on FairTaxNation. Are you using it? Not even our state district leaders have bothered to put their names on the map.

We have "events". Are you using it? Are you having FairTax meeting? Do the people in your area know about your meeting?

 If we ever are going to get FairTax passed we need your help.

MSNBC initiated a poll, "How Would You Improve the Tax Code?"   

Not surprisingly, their four ballot options did not include the "FairTax", but you can vote to ELIMINATE THE INCOME TAX AND CREATE A NATIONAL SALES TAX INSTEAD.  You can show them their little "games" won't work.

Right now, the FairTax is in 1st place as a result of the thousands of FairTax supporters who have already expressed their opinion.  But we want our victory to be so overwhelming that the results can't be ignored by MSNBC, or anyone else. 

If we are to make FairTax a household word and the ONLY legitimate option for replacing the current income tax code, we must take advantage of every opportunity to voice our opinion. 

You do not have to register with MSNBC to cast your vote, however, we encourage you to add a comment stating that you specifically support the FairTax. Adding comments will require that you register. A small inconvenience to stand up in a big way for the FairTax, but isn't it worth it? 

We need everyone to participate in this poll, so Go Get 'Em!! 

And if you want to do more, don't forget the Five for FairTax campaign

Hi Billie,

I got an email from the Tea Party people.  Apparently there is to be a bill to come before the House regarding the EPA.  I have contacted my congressman about this.  Here is the info that I got:
"There are tremendous concerns about the damage being done to our national economy and the Ohio economy by the actions of the EPA to impose cap and trade without congressional approval.  The US House of Representatives is taking action to reign in the EPA with a bill called the TRAIN Act and we need to support those actions.  The TRAIN ACT is expected to come before the full U.S. House of Representatives on Thursday, September 22nd. This bill would push back against the EPA's unconstitutional, outrageous rules and regulations that raise energy prices for consumers, destroy jobs and increase our dependence on foreign sources of energy. The TRAIN Act will:
• Reject the EPA's attempt to shut down coal as one key source of our energy needs
• Ensure that America continues to be able to use its own natural resources for energy, as opposed to relying more on foreign sources of energy
• Stop the EPA from acting without Congressional approval
Please ask your members to contact all of Ohio's members of Congress THIS WEEK and confirm that they will vote YES for the TRAIN act.
• Reject the EPA's attempt to shut down coal as one key source of our energy needs

Please ask your members to contact all of Ohio's members of Congress THIS WEEK and confirm that they will vote YES for the TRAIN act. 
Best Regards,

Did you notice who Obama threatened when he wasn't getting his way on raising the debt ceiling?

He threatened to not pay: Social Security Retirees, Military Retirees, Social Security disability and Federal Retirees.

 

And now he is on vacation!

These are exciting days for FairTax. The House Ways and Means Committee has taken up consumption taxes by holding two panels one on FairTax HR 25 and the other on the VAT. (As of today there is no bill in the House proposing a VAT)
 
The Democrats invited Mr. Bruce Bartlett to speak in opposition to the
FairTax. My understanding is Bruce Bartlett has no formal economic
training. He has a masters degree in history and his graduate paper
was on the culpability of the U.S. in starting WWII.
 
Dr. David Tuerck and Dr. Laurence J. Kotlikoff will speak on behalf of
the FairTax. Both have already written papers debunking Bruce
Bartlett's claims.

Mike Huckabee will also be testifying on behalf of the FairTax.


Thank you to the volunteers who have contacted the members of the
House Ways & Means Committee to invite them to attend the hearing! I
believe that each member of the committee has been contacted by a
volunteer from FairTax at least once.

The hearing is only the beginning! We need to make sure we follow up
on this hearing and the others to follow. As you know FairTaxers will
be in Washington DC this week personally visiting congressional
offices, talking to Congressmen and staff during Storm the Hill.

We need your help! Please call, fax, visit your local Congressional
offices this week and ask your Congressman to cosponsor the FairTax.

Phone lines into Washington DC have been jammed with debt ceiling
concerns and other topics so your best option my be to call local
offices.

(FYI There is another tax hearing in the House Ways & Means on taxes

this week: Boustany Announces Hearing on New IRS Paid Tax Return

Thanks Billie,

It seemed to work with a lot of help from my son.  I never know what password to use and all this terminology and different headers.  Maybe now I can do it on my own.

Welcome, Billie - -

Do you know about the Monday, June 6, Fair Tax meeting to be held at the Quayle Museum in Huntington? It will be at the Dan Quayle Vice-Presidential Museum (see the photo) at the corner of Warren and Tipton Streets near downtown Huntington. It will start at 6:30 and end at 8:30 p.m.

There will be two speakers representing the Fair Tax organization: Mr. Ron Heilman from Fort Wayne, and Mr. Adrian Messer from Silver Lake.

Bring yourself, a friend or two, and your questions!

We were in Medina yesterday (4/15/11) with our FairTax material.  They have a very nice group (McFAN.org) with a very nice turn out.  We got several petitions and a lot of interest in FairTax.  We need someone to start a FairTax group in the Akron Area that would include Medina and Canton.  If there is any interest please contact Steve Curtis, Barbara Wilson or me.  Keep FairTax growing.

On April 15 each year, many Americans would like to eliminate the Internal
Revenue Service (IRS). Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, says it’s not such a bad idea.

“In my opinion, the IRS is one of the least essential agencies in the federal
government,” he writes in The Washington Times. “If I had my way, we
would shut down the non-essential IRS forever. This is why I am an
advocate for legislation that does just that.”

The FairTax Act, a bill co-sponsored by King, seeks to reform the tax
structure by replacing the income tax with a consumption tax, he explains.

That would “eliminate the need for the IRS because the FairTax would be
administered in much the same manner as states administer state sales
taxes,” King writes. “Americans would no longer have to file a return
because taxes would be collected at the point of sale for a good or
service.”
