From Americans for Fair Taxation:
Michael Reagan, the eldest son of former President Ronald Reagan, has just agreed to act as the Honorary Chairman of the FairTax National Victory Campaign!
I wanted to tell you first.
Mike believes, and we agree, that if the FairTax had existed during his father’s time, President Reagan would have been a strong proponent.
It’s not a hard conclusion to reach given that his father said this: “Our federal tax system is, in short, utterly impossible, utterly unjust and completely counterproductive, it reeks with injustice and is fundamentally un-American... it has earned a rebellion and it's time we rebelled...”
Mike has now agreed to help us get the second American tax revolt moving into high gear. That means a lot of Congressional communications, media work, radio, telephone recordings and television. It means a broader base of supporters behind the beloved legacy of Ronald Reagan, one of our greatest Presidents.
We have needed a strong public “face” and voice for the FairTax and it is hard to imagine a better champion for our needed cause.
I’ve written you before that this will become the “Year of the FairTax” and this is a big step forward toward that goal.
