The FairTax is coming round the bend

Did you ever get that prickly feeling at the back of your neck and you just knew something was going to happen? When you were a kid playing around the railroad tracks did you ever put your ear to the track and you knew that something, not too far off, was coming? Did you ever wake up in the middle of the night with that uneasy, but not uncomfortable, feeling that things were about to change? Well, you weren’t wrong.

That prickle at the back of your neck is the feeling of imminent change; that uneasiness is the anticipation of a new direction; and yes, that almost imperceptible vibration you’re feeling is the train coming around the bend and bringing with it, the FairTax.

On Tuesday, March 17, 2009, from 6:00 to 7:00 PM, Iowa Congressman Steve King will host a ‘Special Order‘ hour of non-legislative debate on the FairTax bill (HR 25, S 296). This event will be televised on C-Span.

If you are not yet familiar with the FairTax plan this will be an excellent opportunity to find out what’s the big deal. Tune in to this televised event to find out not only what the FairTax is about, but also to get an idea of the ignorant, self-serving, and political arguments against it. Should be fun for everyone.
