Yesterday, Senator Johnny Isakson signed on as a co-sponsor of SR25, the Senate version of Congressman John Linder’s Fair Tax bill. Senator Chambliss is the primary sponsor of the bill.
Sen. Isakson has never been a public opponent of the Fair Tax, but I’m pleasantly surprised to see him co-sponsor the bill.
On a related note, Neal Boortz, Herman Cain, Sean Hannity, Clark Howard, and John Linder will be at a Fair Tax Rally tomorrow evening at the Gwinnett Center. Apparently, country band Banks & Shane will perform their “Fair Tax Song.” I love the Fair Tax, but having a song about apiece of legislation is just a bit weird. I hope this rally doesn’t turn into some sort of new-age religious convention.
