Time Sensitive Project
This email is a follow up to the conference call on Thursday June 2nd. We need you to all help with a time sensitive project.
This project is aimed at contacting past and present state level legislators and governors. This month. We are asking state reps and senators to sign the attached letter that calls for the President, Congress, and the Tax panel to fully investigate and consider the FairTax. See the attached letter.
While the FairTax is a Federal issue, it will have a tremendously positive impact on the States. See the attached paper. It is very important we get State level legislators to encourage the federal delegations to support the FairTax. Why?
Ø The impact on the States will be one thing the tax panel and Congress will be considering. Soon.
Ø We need to begin the education process for the 16th amendment repeal through the States after passage.
Ø A few congressmen have expressed their concern over our ability to repeal the 16th. A letter signed by governors and state reps and senators will dispel those concerns.
Ø NCSL will be meeting in August of this year. They are an association of state reps. We will have an opportunity to discuss our plan at their national convention that month. We would like all of the state reps and senators to be familiar with the FairTax by then and have a letter signed by many of them to bring with us. So folks, times a wastin'!
Getting state legislators signatures on a letter encouraging them to fully investigate and consider the FairTax will go a long way toward ensuring special interest groups are not successful on cutting the FairTax out of consideration before it gets a full evaluation. We know once the FairTax is fully vetted, it wins hands down over other options. Read the attached letter. It should be fairly easy to get the state reps and senators to sign it.
Here is what we need you to do today:
Email Bill Rollyson at wvquest@... and genie@... and put "state project" in the subject line. We will then send you instructions and supply you contact information for a specific group of your states senators and representatives (yes – it is not all of them) in order to begin your work. Then in a nutshell, you will be asked to do the following:
Call your state legislators to:
1) Set up a personal meeting to review the FairTax and its potential benefits at the State level, and/or
2) Offer to email them the relevant material with a follow-up call after they have a week or so to review it.
3) The bottom line is to get them to sign the attached letter and fax us a copy of that signed letter to 713-963-8403 or email us their signature and title with the letter attached. That email can go to Bill or Genie and most be accompanied by a confirmation from us to assure it has been received.
We are asking these reps and senators to sign the attached letter that calls for the President, Congress, and the Tax panel to fully investigate and consider the FairTax. See the attached letter. Many legislators are uncomfortable taking a position on such large change, so this letter is not an outright endorsement ... just a letter supporting a full investigation of its benefits to the states and the national economy. You will find the State level legislators are much easier to get in touch with than federal and are quicker to consider your opinions.
Remember we are working under a tight, tight time line here so the sooner the better. Many state reps are home and easy to get a hold of now. We will give you all of their contact information – you won't have to look up anything! Then let's get these letters in ASAP.
We know we can count on you. Please let Bill and I know and we will send you out the files to get started.
Thanks for your willingness to be involved!
Genie Hayes, Jonathan Read and Bill Rollyson
