Thanks City of MW!

Dear Editor,

It is a pleasure to tell how the city has cleaned NE 10th Street. Grass and weeds were growing through the pavement and bushes and grass were hanging out into the street. People did not know the street even had a curb. Now NE 10th Street looks like a street instead of an alley. Good job city and my thanks!

Fair Tax Now!

Dear Editor,

The FairTax is an idea whose time has come. The Congress – House and Senate, republicans and democrats – has demonstrated time-after-time the inability to restrain itself with the public purse. The Congress simply can’t govern effectively as long as the income tax is in place. Even the “fiscal crises” legislation passed by the current Congress added $74 billion MORE to the deficit; all to favor special interest groups. In order to save America, Congress must be denied the instrument of its folly – the income tax. A solution has been filed away in a drawer somewhere by the Congress for over 10 years. It’s called The FairTax. It’s neither a republican nor democrat idea but truly an American idea!

If adopted, the FairTax would replace the income tax, repeal the 16th Amendment and annihilate the IRS. Within one year America would experience unprecedented economic growth and thousands upon thousands of NEW JOBS would be created.

Contact your congressperson through his/her web site; insist that he/she do everything possible to bring the FairTax proposal to the floor of the house and once there, to support it. Large numbers of citizens must demand the FairTax if we are to have it.
