Fairborn Daily Herald had Steve's great FairTax column in today's editorial section. Please use it to point out to your more liberal minded friends that the FairTax is good for ALL Americans. There wa another column on the editorial page regarfing taxws written by Sen. Brown as well. Hope to see some of you next Wednesday!
Earlier last week we had a great column on the FairTax in our local newspaper. There was a response from a local citizen who liked it, but didn't think it could happen. So in today's local paper there were three letters to the editor in vocal support of the FairTax. Through it all, nary a word about politics. Check us out here in Ohio. Our legislators may not be listening YET, but our citizens are!
Any Beavercreek folks out there, don't forhet we have a FairTax meeting this Wednesday night. Hope to see you there.
Dayton Mall FairTax will be at the Beavercreek Fire Station on Dayton-Xenia/Orchard Lane, Alpha at 6:30 to make some calls for the 60-Plus organization. Chik Fil A or a Subway sandwich will be supplied by Nancy's group. I figure we can do an hour of phoning for Nancy and then go home to watch the Presidential debate.
Sorry this is so late, but my computer did not post earlier.
Fair Tax Nation now has a Member Map.
Please post your address so Ohio can be counted. Thanks.
Didn't recall seeing this here before. If I'm wrong, my bad. But we need to get behind this folks!
A note from FairTax Regional Director, Phil Hinson:
As most of you are aware, HR 1040 is the only flat tax bill in the House of Representatives, which is where tax reform legislation is supposed to originate in our system of government. I just checked on it and here is what I found.
The bill is now up to 10 co-sponsors. Hr 25 has 66.
POPVOX shows 773 votes recorded on the HR 1040 page with 68% opposed. HR 25 has vote a total of 5,276 with 80% in favor. That means that approximately 4,221 voters have registered their support for HR 25, while 248 have voted for HR 1040.
Thanks to everyone who voted for HR 25 on POPVOX in 2011. If you have not yet voted, please do so this week. It only takes a few minutes.
Just sent an e-mail to WIN America asking them to consider using the FairTax as their standard as it is an already established bill (HR25/S13) and has cosponsors in each house, has been well researched, and meets their needs. I also made it clear politely that i expected a response. We'll see what happens.
Walt Bagley has a great idea.
Phone calls to a Congressional office get answered by one clerk and recorded on a log sheet. That sheet gets looked at to see what areas received the most calls or other activity. It only effects one person in the office for a few seconds. Think about something else.
If you prepare a short letter to the congressperson and FAX it to the office. (still a phone call expense) A clerk in the office must pick up the fax and read through it in order to log it in. Then what do they do with the letter? Pass it along to the tax staff person to respond? If an office is flooded with faxes, someone must refill the paper in the machine, there would be stacks of paper produced to be handled and filed etc. This would create more activity in the office than just making a phone call and maybe get more of an impact.
This is something we could work on here next year folks. Look for it in an upcoming meeting.
On 12-15-11 the Fairborn Daily Herald posted state director Steve Curtis latest column "Congress and the FairTax". Well worth the read. The newspaper also published a letter to the editor from Bill Teti (Fairborn resident and FairTax friend) regarding the FairTax.
12-16-11 the Fairborn Daily Herald has a commentary on the editorial pages by a guy name of William Rice regarding taxes and the "rich". The title is "the rich don't need a free ride" and may be found on www.otherwords.org WARNING, he is a leftie!!
Lastly, I just want to point out that our local hometown newspaper is continuing to do its job by keeping the tax reform issue alive. Do we know any other paper that is doing this? I sure don't.
