Our Grassroots Leaders started the Year 2021 shaking the trees in Washington and at Congress Members' offices back home. Alabama State Director, Chuck Bailey, reports that he met with Representatives Mo Brooks, AL-05, and Barry Moore, AL-02, following a Free Speech Rally at Fredericks Outdoors in Decatur, Alabama, on Saturday, January 24, 2021.  Both representatives pledged to co-sponsor the FAIRtax, which is now sponsored in the U.S. House of Representatives by Congressman Buddy Carter from Georgia’s First Congressional District.

We gratefully recognize their support of the Fair Tax Act of 2021, HR25 in the House, and have every confidence that Congress Members Brooks, Moore, and Carter will actively promote the re-introduced bill.  

Representative Gary Palmer, who was not in attendance on Saturday, is also a pledged co-sponsor.

On January 22, 2021, our leadership team met with Congressman Carter in his District office in Savannah, Georgia. We were pleased that he agreed to meet with us so quickly, and there’s no doubt that our new sponsor is eager to start promoting the FAIRtax bill.

The Congressman’s aide, Tommy Reynolds, was the aide to Congressman Rob Woodall, GA-07, before Congressman Woodall retired. Tommy is familiar with the FAIRtax and will give Congressman Carter continuity and support.

I would love to hear what you are doing to meet with your U.S. or state representatives to discuss the FAIRtax.

Yours In the FAIRtax Movement!
