National Grassroots FairTax Town Hall Meeting

FairTaxNation - The American people demand bold solutions. Congressman Rob Woodall’s (R-GA) bill, H.R. 25, The FairTax, is one of the boldest tax reform bills in Congress. This Tuesday, April 17, Congressman Rob Woodall, along with several H.R. 25 co-sponsors, the President of the National Small Business Association, and the President of the National Taxpayers Union, will host a press conference in front of the U.S. Capitol. Participants in the press conference will voice their support for fundamental tax reform, and call upon the American people to do their part in urging their Representatives in Congress to support the kind of tax code overhaul that the FairTax offers.

Participants will include:
Rep. Kevin Brady (R-TX)
Rep. Ander Crenshaw (R-FL)
Rep. Blake Farenthold (R-TX)
Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-GA)
Rep. Steve King (R-IA)
Rep. Rich Nugent (R-FL)
Rep. Tom Price (R-GA)
Rep. Phil Roe (R-TN)
Rep. Marlin Stutzman (R-IN)
Rep. Rob Woodall (R-GA)
Todd McCracken, President, National Small Business Association
Duane Parde, President, National Taxpayers Union
And there may be a surprise or two...

After the rally/conference in Washington, DC two years ago, FairTax nation held a meeting of the grassroots to discuss our concerns, ideas, and plans on the direction of the Fair Tax Grassroots. Well, it is time for another Town Hall to discuss where we have been, where we are, and where we need to go.

I used to be for Fairtax, till I learned the hustle. Sure it sounds great, no kidding.

But read the footnotes and fine print.
