I am so sorry it has been so long, but know that action is still happening unseen and unheard. We are trying to change that for the 2014 and 2016 elections.
Do you still reside in Enumclaw? IF so... the biggie right now is pressure on the House Ways and Means Committee members to vote YES to get the FairTax out of committee. While I have called Rep. Reichert's office those in his district will have a louder voice. PLEASE DO SO TODAY contact is below and please email me and let me know how it goes. Thank you!
"VOTE YES" to get the FairTax out of the HW&M Committee
We're NOT giving up by ANY stretch of the imagination...however the response I got seemed mamby pamby in that he wants me to pat him on the back for co-sponsoring a piece of legislation that would get rid of the Tax Code, states in a round about sort of way that what he is looking for is the FairTax yet won't by-pass that bill for the ONE that impliments EVERYTHING he states.
If you saw all the letters I got to this point it might be even clearer why I feel this way, but again NOT giving up!! The FairTax IS the solution for a whole lot of things!!!!!!
Yes Dustin the Tea Party people and Fair Tax people fit together like a glove! We had a great Tea Party here in Myrtle Beach today and I was honored to get to speak on behalf of the Fair Tax at it. We probably have doubled our support today nation wide for the Fair Tax through the Tea Parties.
That's a great start. Do you have Fair Tax lititure and sign up cards for these people? Do you have any copies of the Fair Tax books by Neil Boortz? I see your starting from scratch here and I'll help all I can in helping you jump ahead of the game.
Dustin any advice or help you need with forming your group just send me a message. We are all here to help and know you have to crawl before you walk. We just want to help you avoid mistakes we have already made and some frustriating nights!
Dustin in response to you comment on Leadership... How are you getting your group together? Lisa Woods (mcfan.org) suggests each community form a (your town) Friends and Neighbors group. That way you can discuss all matters. We have been a FairTax group for the last couple of years and now we are going to "We Surround Them", "Huck Pac", "Tea Parties", and the list just gets longer. I think a FairTax group is necessary; but you have to start some where with people of different interests. As to what to talk about... You start with an agenda and anyone that is versed on FairTax will have comments and you may want to have a few friends as guests that will start asking questions to get the group in the mood. The other thing about our group is everyone helps and participates in all of our projects. We visit our congressmen's offices, we go to parades, we have booths at neighborhood gatherings, and we have done the state and local fairs. One person can not do everything. Hope this helps.

The graphic appears at the top of the TEES FOR THE TEA PARTY thread, but I don't get the actual shirts til today or tomorrow. If you would like to reserve a couple for showing at the meeting, that would be ok, but I need to know by tomorrow night, in case we sell out on Saturday.
I think I need to send you a FairTax the TRUTH, Answering the Critics. LOL You are going to be FAR more prepared than most people don't even "go". After $25 million in research I figure they've thought of everything to make the WIN WIN legislation...GREAT questions, just more in depth than I have ever had to get!
Business to Business...no tax. My parents researched that one because they own a small business. They aren't "consuming" hence, no consumption tax....they are producing or providing a service which will get the consumption tax.
Dustin...it is "not" going to get them hard to bite because #1...it is "only" on new not used (which WA octotaxes us)...the other thing is explaining the embedded tax.... "Did you know..." I also make sure they know that UNLIKE right now we do NOT get a prebate...up to the poverty level...in short the first approx. $25,000 of EARNINGS is completely UNTAXED!!!
we get FICA, Medicare & Federal Withholding back in EVERY paycheck
we get a "prebate"
the companies we work for can now "give pay raises or bonuses or GROW their businesses or hire more people --- or all of the above"
we no longer have to worry about tax audits
we no longer have to PAY someone to "try" (as they are not always successful) to prepare our taxes...
Here in WA I pay an 8% sales tax...AND a 22% embedded corporate/payroll tax but my paycheck as the FICA, Medicare & federal withholding taken out....SO...I take my ALREADY taxed money and spend what is left and when I do I pay ANOTHER 22% of embedded taxes. With the FairTax I will get my EARNINGS without any federal withholding that I get to go spend and pay a 23% tax PLUS I will also get a rebate. hmmmmmm FAIR TAX alll the way!!!
Hope that helps...if not give me a call and we can "talk"
