FairTax Cosponsors in Texas

Looks like we'll get one more in Olsen.

FairTax Picks up another Congressman in Texas in Pete Olson (R). At least that is what we’ve been told. This puts the score at 14 cosponsors verses 6 who chose not to do so. That will give us 70% Republican support and 0% Democrat support in the House of Representatives for Texas. ‘Freedoms Truth’ gave the low down in his bit “http://www.redstate.com/diaries/wosg/2008/nov/18/tx-21-and-the-other-tx-house-seats/ But I’d like to expound a little on what is a big to me.

So, we FairTaxers lost no ground in Texas. I wish we could say the same in Tennessee where district 1 Rep. Davis (R) got himself booted in the primary by Roe. Roe talks favorably and says he likes both the FairTax and the flat tax. That’s cool too. Hopefully he will cosponsor both bills. If he fails to do so, we will have lost ground in Tennessee. In the 110th Congress Tennessee had 75% Republican support and 0% Democrat support. We may be back to 50/50.I hope Senator Chambliss (R) keeps his seat in GA. I went down there for a FairTax Rally in Duluth over the weekend in support of Chambliss.
So, the fight goes on.
