Yesterday I posted about a special order being called by Congressman Steve King of Iowa the discuss the FairTax. I am hearing that instead of 6 PM, the special Order may be held at 4 or 4:15 PM Eastern. The following are the words of Steve King posted on FairTax.org:
Today, March 17th, Iowa Congressman Steve King is going to host a “Special Order” on the floor of the House of Representatives on the FairTax! For one full hour Members of Congress will discuss the FairTax and how our legislation can save the US economy.
Our current economic crisis will not be solved through tax increases or massive government spending. In these tough times, we need an innovative solution on Capitol Hill: the FairTax.
The FairTax is the best and most effective way to encourage business growth and positive, long-term economic performance. Enacting the FairTax would usher in a new period of American economic growth, create new jobs across the country and give American citizens more control over their own paychecks.
On Tuesday, March 17, several of my House colleagues and I will spend an hour on the House floor discussing the merits of the FairTax and sharing its positive message with C-SPAN viewers (Watch live Tuesday night via your local cable provider or at http://www.cspan.org. New scheduled start is 4:00 p.m. EST, but may be delayed due to normal House business).
Our goal is to educate and inform more Americans about the FairTax and how it can help American workers and businesses. Millions of Americans have either never heard of the FairTax or do not know enough about it, but as more people hear about the FairTax, support grows.
My hope is that this hour and similar opportunities in the future will add to the groundswell of national FairTax support. I spent 28 years running my own construction business, and I remember thinking that if I was ever in a position to help dismantle the IRS, I would do everything I could to make that happen.
Right now we need the FairTax not only because our federal tax system is broken beyond repair, but because it will help unemployed Americans find new jobs and help families pay their bills. Now is the time to position the FairTax in the center of the ongoing economic debate in Congress, the White House and throughout America.
