Congressman John Linder, the Sponsor of HR25 the Fair Tax in the House of Representatives, has begun a program to get a feel for the actual support of the HR25 the Fair Tax.

 
Here is his message:

We need to show that the issue of fundamental tax reform is critical to the economic growth of this nation, and I want to bring a million names to Washington, D.C. to make that point. Please sign on today to show your support for the passage of HR25 to create a simple and fair tax system.

 
Go to this website:

 http://www.johnlinder.com/citizen_co_sponsor.asp

and add your name as a citizen co-sponsor of the FairTax.

Be sure to pass this information along to all of the supporters (including spouses) that you know and remember to tell all new supporters that you bring on board.
