Linder has the fiery message that Bush may be lacking: Burn down the IRS

U.S. Rep. John Linder's favorable rating was so high at the close of his race against Republican colleague Bob Barr in the 7th Congressional District primary two years ago that -- after winning the election -- Linder polled again to find out precisely why he was so popular.

"It was Fair Tax," Linder said last week in Washington. And if it was good enough for him, it'll sure be good for whatever ails President Bush, he thinks.

Linder's voice seemed even more soft-spoken than usual as he visited in his Capitol side office. Solidly ensconced after his rout of Barr, Linder isn't likely to see serious opposition in his district any time soon.

But as he waits for the House Rules Committee chairmanship he has stalked for years, Linder still has about him something of the conservative firebrand who once preached the gospel of Gingrichism.

"We need to do something bold," he said, sizing up another election in which he sees both the state and nation as closely divided.

The 1994 election that gave us the "Contract with America" turned out 9 million voters who haven't been back since, Linder maintains. A similar bold, conservative move to lure them back to the polls is needed to give Republicans a decisive victory, he believes.

The obvious choice is his proposal for a 23-percent sales tax to replace virtually all the other taxes the federal government collects. Along with the elimination of the Internal Revenue Service.

Linder's Fair Tax bill has been afloat on the congressional waters for three years without getting very far, but it has picked up some influential support, including House Speaker Dennis Hastert, Majority Leader Tom DeLay and both Georgia senators, Zell Miller and Saxby Chambliss.

Chambliss and Linder will be holding a news conference together Monday at the state Capitol to push for passage of the measure, and Linder says Hastert has asked him to promote Fair Tax around the country this year.

So is Fair Tax finally about to move to the front burner? If the Bush campaign's numbers begin to tank later in the year, this is one to keep your eye on. But don't toss out that 1040 just yet.

A Taxreform bump for you all.

If you would like to be added to this ping list let me know.

John Linder in the House & Saxby Chambliss Senate, offer a comprehensive bill to kill all income and payroll taxes outright, and provide a IRS free replacement in the form of a pure consumption tax:

H.R.25, S.1493
A bill to promote freedom, fairness, and economic opportunity by repealing the income tax and other taxes, abolishing the Internal Revenue Service, and enacting a national retail sales tax to be administered primarily by the States.

I listened to the entire show -- KNOCKOUT STYFF!

Sure glad Boortz is on our side, and I was pleased to hear Senator Chambliss' and Representative Linder's comments on national radio.

We can do this, folks! Let your Represenatative and Senators know the American people will vote for them if they support the Fair Tax and vote against them if they don't.

It is that simple.
