Tax Reform Momentum Is Growing

Peggy and I were in D.C. this week and had the opportunity to congratulate Kevin Brady, the new Chairman of the Ways And Means Committee.  Chairman Brady was his normal gracious self.

Chairman Brady expressed his confidence that there was going to be comprehensive tax reform in 2017.  He pointed out that all of the Republican candidates were promoting tax reform proposals.  This would almost guarantee that the Republican nominee would be promoting his or her plan during the campaign and that the Democrat nominee would be hard pressed not to also discuss tax reform.

Another important point made by the Chairman is that a President normally is able to move serious legislation in the first eight months of their term and that he wanted to be ready to help in any way.

He plans to hold hearings in 2016 about all types of tax reform, but it is comforting for advocates of the FAIRtax that a person who has been a long-time cosponsor of the FAIRtax will be heading the committee that will ultimately propose a bill to be considered by Congress.  From my conversations with him, I am confident that he sees the advantages of the FAIRtax.  I also have confidence that we will have our best opportunity for the FAIRtax to receive a “fair” hearing.

At the conclusion of our meeting, the Congressman’s office took this photo of Peggy, Chairman Brady and me.  This was very nice of them but later that day, the photo was posted on the Congressman’s FaceBook page with the following text, Met with team from Americans For Fair Taxation this morning.  I am proud to be an original cosponsor of H.R.25, FairTax Act of 2015. #FAIRtax.

December D.C. Trip

Peggy’s report next week will detail the results of our other meetings.  They were quite positive and it is refreshing to see how the Members are responding to our requests to meet.

1040 Club
To those of you not familiar with the 1040 Club, AFFT is asking people to contribute $10.40 per month to AFFT.   This provides a steady funding platform and allows us to spend our time not trying to raise money but actually working with groups to help make passage of the FAIRtax a reality.   Thanks to each of you who have joined the 1040 Club.  You are ensuring that Americans For Fair Taxation can continue to promote the FAIRtax.

Whether you’re a FAIRtax volunteer or an informed citizen who wishes to be better informed, we encourage you to listen to FAIRtax Power Radio, the online radio show that is available when you are.  Bob and Ron just finished a series of three episodes in which they discuss criticisms of the FAIRtax that we have all heard over the years.
