"Fair Tax" discussion in Congress at 4 p.m. EST

As you all know, a "fair tax" is tantamount to "fair theft," but at least it would mean that we all would get robbed equally instead of "progressively." So I'm for it as an interim measure toward an ultimate goal of ending taxation and making "contributions to government voluntary. The folks at www.fairtax.org have been working diligently to get it discussed and, with the help of some congressmen, will get the discussion to the House floor today at 4. Here's the info that the organization sent out:
Dear FairTax supporter,

Your voice is being heard! Today at 4:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) Iowa Congressman Steve King is going to host a "Special Order" on the floor of the House of Representatives on the FairTax! For one full hour Members of Congress will discuss the FairTax and how our legislation can save the US economy! As we speak, Congressman King is working to have several other members join him on the floor today. House leadership has asked Congressman King to mention President Obama’s plans for tax increases, so the Congressman and other members will be contrasting these planned tax hikes with the FairTax and all it can do to stimulate our economy. Here’s what you can do right now to strengthen the hand of Congressional co-sponsors and help the FairTax cause.

1.Contact your Representative:
https://writerep.house.gov/writerep/welcome.shtml Start by thanking your co-sponsoring Representative for supporting H.R. 25 (the FairTax bill), but then ask them to please join Congressman King on the floor today in support of the FairTax during this highly-visible floor session.

2.Tune in to watch the FairTax Special Order live on C-SPAN at 4:00 p.m. You can stream it live at http://www.cspan.org/. Be sure to tell you friends and colleagues to tune-in as well. Please note this time is subject to change because of House floor activities that may run long. However, please stay tuned to C-SPAN to catch the session whenever it begins. Again, this is an incredible opportunity to promote the FairTax as a real and permanent stimulus plan that America needs. Let’s make sure that we have a strong showing.

Sincerely, Ken Hoagland, National Communications Director
