Our 34th Co-Sponsor - Rep. Bill Flores

On 6/26/19 Rep. Bill Flores (TX-17) became the 34th Co-Sponsor of The FAIRtax.

Rep. Flores’ district encompasses a strip of central Texas stretching from Waco to Bryan-College Station, including former President George W. Bush's McLennan County Ranch.

Rep. Flores has been a Co-Sponsor of The FAIRtax since he was first elected to The House Of Representatives in 2010, having been re-elected 4 times since.  Before Rep. Flores was elected, the district had not been a FAIRtax District.

Texas FAIRtax State Director, Marv Kuhn, reports he contacted Flores’ office about 3 weeks ago and discussed co-sponsoring the bill as he did in the last session of Congress.

Marv recounted, “It works, i.e., my story is the same…We need to get the bill to a vote if we want to pass it.  We get a vote when we have 218 US Congressmen co-sponsoring the bill.  Texas had contributed 15 or 16 each session (almost 20%) of the total co-sponsors…

Rep. Flores’ office provided us with the following comments: “The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act made remarkable progress in simplifying our tax code, but we can do more to abolish what is left of an inefficient and complicated tax code.  H.R. 25 “The FairTax Act” creates a more transparent system for every American by taxing only consumption and permanently removing today’s income tax on hard work.  This allows hardworking Americans to know how much they are sending to the federal government and promotes economic growth by eliminating all remaining market distortions in the tax code.”

We want to thank Marv Kuhn - Texas FAIRtax State Director and Andre Castro - Rep. Flores’ Communications Director for their contributions to this week’s Grassroots Corner.
