Please see if this helps. It was written to show how educations and training costs offset government tax payments on consumption, but it may give you the analysis you need to have.

Hi, 
I got hammered a bit today on the fairtax and would like a clarification on something.
The fair tax taxes individuals but will it also tax local, state and federal governments ?

If so, how does the gov. pay a tax without taxing citizens ?

I would really appreciate an answer on this or maybe an explanation of how it will work.

Thanks so much

Notes of Conference Call of Leadership Council
A conference call of the Grassroots Leadership Council took place on Tuesday, May 11, 2010 at 8:30 p.m. The meeting was chaired by John Collet and attended by all the members of the Council, including Terry Stockham as a non-voting member, and by Sean Matula. There were three items on the agenda, but due to time, the only one that was reached was the Strategic Plan.

The Outline of a Framework Document for the Strategic Plan had been drafted by Phil Hinson. The document is two pages and divided into the main headlines of Vision, Mission, Values and Intermediate Goals/Performance Metrics - probably to be renamed Tactics.

Phil incorporated the comments from the phone conference into a subsequent draft to be discussed by the Leadership Council shortly. Following that discussion, it is anticipated the document will be circulated to the Grassroots leaders for input. This step will be an important precursor to action to grow the Grassroots.

Other discussion took place concerning expanding the Leadership Council through subcommittees.

Discussion has also taken place about the direction of the organization as it relates to the database and software capabilities. Further work is needed.

The conference adjourned at about 9:30 p.m. Eastern time.

All,
For your information, courtesy of Terry Stockham, here are the push-back ads that a separate FairTax Political Action Committee ("PAC") is running in the 12th District of Pennsylvania in response to the Mark Critz attack ads against Tim Burns because of Burns' support of the FairTax:

MP3 attached (see discussion).

As grass-roots-ers, let's keep flooding the following two papers with push-back letters to the editor. As FairTax reps, you cannot attack Mark Critz. As individuals you may do as you wish.

I would say, after May 18, on to Indiana!

Best regards,

Report from Doug Dash on Robert Mansfield's Appearance:
Hi Jim etal,
I just watched Robert Mansfield on Fox Strategy Room and he did very well. He came on around 10:50 and responded well to polite questioning from 4 people who were either hosts or guest commentators. He brought up the FairTax immediately and explained how it would work and why it was important to his goals for PA. I think we are lucky to have him on our team and should support and encourage him any way we can. Regardless of the outcome of the election, he could help our cause a great deal.
Regards,
Doug Dash

Briefing of Pennsylvania Gubernatorial Candidate and FairTax Supporter Robert Allen Mansfield

Pictured (see discussion) are Robert Allen Mansfield, Independent Candidate for Governor of Pennsylvania, and Doug Dash, our FairTax District Director for the First Congressional District of New Jersey.

We briefed Robert last night at Doug's home in Collingswood, just across the river from Philadelphia. The briefing served more to fill Robert in on the technical points of the FairTax because, as it turns out, Robert knows much about the FairTax and is an ardent supporter already.

Robert is advocating a state sales in Pennsylvania tax to replace state income, sales and property taxes. We handed him, in addtion to our PowerPoint printout, a paper by Economist David Tuerck, Paul Bachman and Sylvia Jacob entitled "Fiscal Federalism: The National Fair Tax and the States." We marked the appropriate pages for Pennsylvania. Since that study does not appear to include state property tax, which exists in Pennsylvania, the numbers may have to be adjusted.

The candidate picked up quickly on the briefing points and asked probing questions. He demonstrated command of the subject matter and also demonstrated out-front leadership on this and other issues.

To learn more about Robert Mansfield, go to his web site at www.mansfield4pa.org He has a remarkable personal story, having started out with a childhood of every disadvantage imaginable and having turned it all around.

Robert Mansfield will be on The Fox News Strategy Room at 10:30 a.m. today, unfortunately too soon to get the word out ahead of time.

While FairTax cannot specifically support his candidacy, we can prepare an education piece on where the gubernatorial candidates are known to stand on the FairTax. Any assistance on that would be welcome.

Call to Action on Tim Burns Attack Ad
Folks,
As you know, there will a special election in the 12th Congressional District of Pennsylvania on May 18, 2010, and you can help push back on an ad being run by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee attacking Candidate Tim Burns for his support of the FairTax. You can view the attack ad at the following link:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D4W9Go8ajKM

The text of the attack ad is:

"Southwestern Pennsylvania is hurting, but millionaire Tim Burns would make things even worse. Burns supports putting a 23% national sales tax on just about everything we buy. Groceries: 23% more. Gas: 23% more. Burns even wants to raise taxes on medicine. We can’t afford to pay 23% more. We can’t afford Tim Burns. The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is responsible for the content of this advertising."

That ad represents the very worst in American politics.

Here is what you can do. Thanks to Barbara Headlee of Waynesburg, Pennsylvania who responded to my earlier e-mail, we now have the names of two newspapers that circulate in the 12th District and the links to their pages for letters to the editor. They are:

The Obsever-Reporter
http://www.observer-reporter.com/OR/lettertoeditor/

The Pittsburgh Post Gazette
http://biz.post-gazette.com/contact/comments_form.aspx?ID=40

FairTax-ers, flood these two papers with your letters to the editor, letting them know what you think of the DCCC ad. You may be passionate, but you must be respectful at all times. If and when speaking for the FairTax organization, you may not support or oppose Tim Burns, but you may defend the FairTax. You, speaking as an individual, may do as you wish.

If you live in the 12th District of Pennsylvania, also send a letter to the local paper in your comminity.

Please blind copy me in on your letter once it is out to permit me to gauge the response.

Together, we can show the politicians that, when they run dishonest ads such as this, they will be called out - and called out hard.

Folks,
We have a candidate in the 12th District of Pennsylvania (Southwest Corner), Tim Burns (R), who is running next month on the FairTax. Burns is running in a special election to fill the seat vacated by the death of John Murtha.

While we FairTax-ers cannot support candidates, we can, and must, educate the public when pro-FairTax candidates are attacked for their support. Burns opponent's party is running disingenuous attack ads against Burns on the FairTax. As individuals, you can do as you wish.

Now is the time for you to push back. Write to the editors of your local papers and talk to your friends, family, neighbors and colleagues and let them know that you, as their neighbor, support the FairTax. Local contact is far more powerful than political money to buy media.

As your new acting FairTax Regional Director, I am willing to help you to organize the push-back and help you draft letters to your papers. Just ask!

Here are the reports of the campaign from The Hill, the newspaper of Capitol Hill:

"In the May 18 special election in Pennsylvania to replace the late Rep. John Murtha (D), the DCCC is running a television ad attacking the Republican nominee, Tim Burns, for supporting the fair tax, using the issue to accuse him of supporting higher taxes on groceries, gas and medicine.

"The ad refers to an interview Burns gave last year in which he said he 'would love to ultimately see the fair tax implemented.' He went on to suggest that pursuing the fair tax 'straight out of the gate' would be impractical because it would require overhauling the entire tax code.
A Burns campaign spokesman, Kent Gates, said the DCCC ad is a complete distortion at best. Burns issued a statement to The Hill saying he supports making our tax code flatter and fairer.

"Any discussion like the fair tax would have to be part of a debate on creating an entirely new tax code, Burns said."

Another article:

"One danger of the Fair Tax is that Democrats have in the past misrepresented the issue. When now-Senator DeMint of South Carolina endorsed abolishing the income tax, amending the US Constitution to ensure that no income tax could ever be reestablished and only then allow the creation of a FAIR tax/sales tax his Democrat opponent ran a million dollars in ads suggesting that DeMint was proposing a sales tax on top of the present tax structure. Didnt work, but it did confuse voters for several weeks."
