"If you drive a car,
I'll tax the street. If you try to sit, I'll tax your seat. If you get
too cold, I'll tax the heat. If you talk a walk, I'll tax your feet.
Taxman! Well, I'm the Taxman."
Beatles ("Taxman" song)

PA State: While FairTax is a
federal bill, passage is important to our state of Pennsylvania, as it
will help the economy grow and provide Pennsylvania with much needed
additional State revenues. FairTax rather than organized gambling is
the way to provide Pennsylvania with productive additional revenues for
State and property tax reductions. Therefore, we ask that you contact
your Pennsylvania State House and Senate members, and ask them to use
their influence on our federal legislators to help get the FairTax
passed. To find your Pennsylvania district congressional members
representing you in Harrisburg, use the link below and enter your
zipcode in the upper right–hand corner.
