BRAVO, Jessica! You could have been reading from my mind about the frustrations of dealing with those who would rather talk about their dislike of the current administration than about our mission to make the Fair Tax the law of the land. I can't tell you how many times I've also wondered what I was doing among them but comforted myself with the fact that once we have the Fair Tax in place it'll matter much less who is president.
I would very much like to "talk" to you in a venue allowing more space than we have here. I've been trying for months to find a way to make sure Obama, or at least his tax advisors, have the "straight dope" on the Fair Tax. This was exacerbated recently when we heard they were considering a VAT and calling it a Sales Tax! It sounds like you might be able to help? We've long admired Claire McCaskill and wonder if she could provide such a "path?"
You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 256-582-1965. I hope we can "put our heads together" on this.
