Bring HR-25, the FairTax Act of 2011, to the House Floor

Our current Income Tax "Sys/tem" is broken and wrong. HR-25 is based on two years and 23 million dollars worth of broad-based research by respected economists at seven leading universities. In short, FairTax means JOBS. Americans take all of their paychecks home. A monthly prebate check untaxes low income Americans by reimbursing them in advance for the tax they will pay on the necessities of life, up to the poverty level.
FairTax eliminates the IRS and 72,000+ pages of code, rulings and regulations and the abuses inherent in this system. The $350+ BILLION we now spend on complying with the income tax system can be put to better use.
The FairTax is simple and transparent. No IRS in our personal financial lives.

      We're two months into a critical election year. Gas prices are UP, jobs are DOWN -- our economy needs a real stimulus package, which enacting FairTax would create. Has your Congressman co-signed HR-25? If not, sign this petition, then email or call to tell him/her that you demand he/she become a co-sponsor. Help FairTax happen!

      I'm sure making girl-scout cookies rainforest safe (60,000 petitions) is important, but how does it compare to FairTax (307 petitions) American JOBS, growth in the GDP, giving Americans all of their paychecks, and much more? Compare other petitions at change.org and ask yourself how do they compare to what FairTax offers. Then help us move this petition up in numbers.

      Thanks to all who have signed, we're making some noise. When you signed, did you share and ask your friends to do the same? How long will it take us to reach 50,000 supporters? Can we get 100,000? Congress needs to know that millions of Americans support FairTax and want it to become a reality.

      People should not be living below the poverty level.

      Tax revenue would be increased without placing an undue burden upon any particular social stratum if the base were broadened by doing away with the byzantine, unconstitutional maze that is our current tax code. The IRS would no longer exist to violate privacy and individuals' right to contest its judgements. The FairTax proposal is a brilliantly creative, non-coercive overhaul which perhaps most importantly would not affect purchasing habits as the act of consumption, rather than the specific products being consumed, would merit a charge, and as these charges accumulated, they could be monitored openly by the taxpayer. We could avoid so much heartache if we adopted this proposal, and it boggles my mind that in all this debate about the fiscal cliff, no one in congress appears to be publicly pushing for this now, or at least the media certainly isn't publicizing it. I hope my signature can help make this a reality before it's too late.

      LETS THROW THE MONEY CHANGERS OUT OF OUR TEMPLES, THE HOUSE AND SENATE AND GIVE ITBACK TO THE PEOPLE. WHEN SOMEONE IS ELECTED TO CONGRESS OR THE SENATE, THEY ARE GIVEN A LICENSE TO STEAL.

      I agree with Robert Williams-"To each member of Congress, we CAN do this without -YOU-, but don't force us to fire you in order to reinstate American Exceptionalism."
