Fair Tax Blogburst

By Jonathon of Publius Pundit

With this heated election approaching faster than one could imagine,
we thought it would be a time to throw the FT BB into the debates to
see where each of our respective candidates reside in these matters.

We have grown fast and have expanded further than Terry and I
anticipated in such a short time, which should prove to be interesting as we
will hopefully see. Since we have members of numerous states, and
numerous districts of the House of Representatives, let us see where the
incumbents and their challengers reside when it comes to the Fair Tax.

This is where Terry and I ask for a small Homework assignment, but
Terry and I will be participating, as well.....

What we shall do is send a letter to each of the respective
campaigns for the district you reside asking them how they feel in regards to
the Fair Tax. It can be something as simple as an e-mail, and you can
tell them that the Fair Tax BlogBurst will be curious to see their
answers....that way, when we hear back from them, we can all report for our
readers where these individual candidates stand. We have provided a form
letter below, so feel free to borrow this letter and use it/modify it
for your convenience. Readers of the FT BB, we encourage you to do the
very same and send either Terry or I an e-mail and let us know what they
have to say.

This should prove interesting, and should prove to be informative
for voters, as well.

Good Luck!

Here is a valuable resource to look up the individual e-mail
addresses of your Representatives.

Sample letter to congress: The Fair Tax Act, a nonpartisan
bill (rewrite this to be your letter)


The Honorable [First and Last name of congressman or senator]

United States [House of Representatives or Senate]

Washington, D.C. 20510

Re: The FairTax replaces the current tax system.

Dear [Congressman or Senator Last name]:

The Fair Tax Act, a nonpartisan bill sponsored by Representative
John Linder (GA) and Senator Saxby Chambliss (GA), removes the burden of
the income tax and other federal income-based taxes.

The current tax system is incomprehensible. It is beyond reform. It
simply has to go.

The Fair Tax Act replaces the current tax system with a national
consumption tax that:

  • Allows Americans to keep 100 percent of their paychecks, pensions,
    and Social Security payments.

  • Provides a prepaid, monthly rebate for every registered

  • Allows families to save more for home ownership, education, and

  • Raises the same amount of money for the federal government.

  • Makes American products more competitive overseas.

I urge you to heed the vast majority of voters who will surely
support you if you are seen as responsible for passage of this historical
tax reform measure.

As a constituent, I would like to know where you stand on the
