I'm a big fan of the FairTax system that's under debate in Washington. Rich pay their fair share (finally!), middle class are about even, poor get a free ride. I'm pretty sure the bills are H.R. 25 and S. 25. Anyway I called my rep, Ben Chandler-D, last week to tell him that his constituents support this plan and to ask for his endorsement. The guy who answered the phone basically gave me the run around, and told me that he can't really say anything to Mr. Chandler about it. I asked him if he ever speaks with Chandler, he replied yes. So I said, "Next time you see him, tell him that people are calling about FairTax." Based on the guys tone of voice, I am 100% sure that nothing will ever be said to Rep. Chandler. My question; is FairTax a republican thing? I voted for Chandler (twice, he lost the other race), and I'm a little peeved that my requests will go completely unnoticed.... Any thoughts???
