FairTax Update--Joe the Plumber Helps!

Quote:  We've also been talking a lot with Tea Party national leaders. The Tea Parties are a true grassroots outpouring of discontent with government spending and we are the best answer for the nation. They are organizing around the problem and we are organizing around the solution. Our two campaigns belong together. Neal Boortz and Mike Huckabee continue to carry our message to a national audience and we are, of course, very grateful.

Dear FairTax supporter,

I wanted to drop you a note--in the middle of some very hectic days--to fill you in on a few exciting things that are happening with our national campaign right now. This is a time of growth and new excitement about the FairTax that is helping us build the essential grassroots base.

We've appeared on more than 700 radio talk shows in the last 28 months! These shows are bringing more and more people to the FairTax.org web site and many new supporters are joining our cause! Here are a few other items I think you will find of interest:


The New FairTax Ad
Here's a sneak peek at our Investor's Business Daily (IBD) ad running in Monday's edition of the paper. We've used humor to get across a serious message to a large national audience. Our two past ads in IBD and our ads in the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune and smaller papers were big hits causing a real spike in both membership recruitment and web visits.

The Rallies
We are up to our necks now in the final details of our two upcoming FairTax rallies. The rallies will be exciting and a lot of fun and will see national figures like Mike Huckabee and Neal Boortz as well as prominent local FairTaxers. Sean Hannity's show will live broadcast an interview from our South Carolina rally, April 15th.
RSVP for Jacksonville, FL Rally on April 11th
RSVP for Columbia, SC Rally on April 15th

Web streaming the "Save the Nation" South Carolina Rally
We will be showing the very best FairTax YouTube videos at each rally and the South Carolina rally will be featured on a special web streaming link at FairTax.org. Please be sure to sign up for access now if you have not already.

The FairTax Petition
We are closing in on 100,000 petition signatures as I write this message (Sign the petition now if you have not already). The petition will be delivered to the White House on or shortly after April 15th. Together with our outstanding response to Mr. Obama's website, the "Reinvent the RNC" web site and "ChangeDC" we are making our presence known.

On Capitol Hill
The recent "Special Order" on the floor of the House of Representatives, was hosted by Rep. Steve King of Iowa and featured an hour of talk about the FairTax. It was seen across the nation and created a lot of helpful and healthy excitement. We are still getting resistance from DC tax reform groups--of all people--as well as Members of Congress but that resistance will increasingly evaporate as we continue to grow stronger.

Growing Supporter Base
Right now, we are adding from 300 to 600 new supporters a day. This is the time to reach out to everyone you know and tell them that the FairTax is non-partisan, can save the economy and help every taxpayer. Here is an issue that both Democrats and Republicans can agree on!

Here at HQ
After April 15th, our biggest push will be turning FairTaxers out to Town Hall meetings hosted by elected officials. It is high time they hear, face-to-face from hometown constituents on the FairTax. This can make a big difference in winning co-sponsors to our legislation.

National Voices
Finally, we've been talking a lot recently with "Joe the Plumber" who is launching a national push for the FairTax. Joe represents the voice of the average man in desiring a better tax system and his help is most welcome. Watch Joe talk about the FairTax on HBO tonight on "Real Time with Bill Maher" and on Fox Sunday night on "Geraldo At Large." He'll be on stage in Lansing, Michigan and outside Atlanta at a Tea Party rallies April 15th talking about the FairTax. You go Joe!

We've also been talking a lot with Tea Party national leaders. The Tea Parties are a true grassroots outpouring of discontent with government spending and we are the best answer for the nation. They are organizing around the problem and we are organizing around the solution. Our two campaigns belong together. Neal Boortz and Mike Huckabee continue to carry our message to a national audience and we are, of course, very grateful.

I hope to see many of you at the upcoming rallies. Keep the faith--and keep up the good work!

Sincerely,

Ken Hoagland
National Communications Director
