The Latest FairTax Survey Results! 

Have you ever noticed how politicians and candidates running for office make bold pronouncements about what the American people are thinking?

At Americans for Fair Taxation (AFFT), we believe the American people are quite capable of expressing their own opinions, so we commissioned a telephone survey to gauge their support for the FairTax plan.

The results are in! Even when provided just basic knowledge of the FairTax, Americans from both sides of the political aisle support the FairTax and are willing to take action!

Almost half a million phone calls were made to households represented in Congress by members of the recent U.S. Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction, the "Super Committee". Respondents were given a brief description of the FairTax followed by a series of short questions designed to determine their support for the FairTax, and to ask if they would voice their support to their Representative or Senator.  What did they say?

  • 93% believe that everyone should pay their fair share in taxes
  • 81% would like control of how much in taxes they pay
  • 56% want Congress to pass the Fair Tax and of those, 62% were willing to call their Representative and tell them to support the FairTax bill

You can view more results here.

So what does this mean for us?

It means the American people do not need "talking heads" presenting filtered opinions about what they think. When asked directly, individuals are more than willing to state their opinion and their opinion is loud and clear - the FairTax should be the law of the land.

Please continue telling others about how the FairTax can transform our economy, our businesses and our individual paychecks. Contact your Representative and let them know that you support the FairTax and you expect that as your representative, they will too.

The FairTax in the News 

Gary Johnson's executive style: Put issues first, politics last to get good governmentAll Voices

…Johnson reiterated his support for the Fair Tax and directed people in the audience to to learn more. Johnson promised that as president, he would advocate for a complete scrapping of the current U.S. tax code, going so far as eliminating the I.R.S. and ending payroll withholdings. In place of today's tax system would be a 23 percent consumption tax – dubbed the "Fair Tax" by its supporters -- on all new goods and services.

The consumption tax would be offset by what Johnson terms "prebates," monthly $200 checks for every American. The annual sum of $2,400 would offset the cost of the consumption tax up to the poverty level, currently calculated at $10,800 for an individual and $22,350 for a family of four…

Gary Johnson Leaving GOP for Libertarian Party - Newsmax

...He wants to abolish most taxes and replace them with a 23 percent federal sales tax that he describes as the "Fair Tax."

"It does away with the federal income tax, it does away with business and corporate tax, it does away with the IRS, it does away with withholdings. It makes American goods and services 23 percent more competitive and in a zero-corporate tax rate environment."

If the private sector does not create tens of millions of jobs with a zero corporate tax rate then there is nothing we can do for the private sector to make that happen."..
