First, full disclosure: Hank Johnson was my client for a minute or two, because I live in DeKalb County and he was not Cynthia McKinney. Those are probably the only two things Representative Johnson and I have in common -or so I thought, until I saw this picture of him at a FairTax Rally:
I know what you’re thinking -you’re thinking “Guam!” because everyone always thinks that when they see Hank, but a little research reveals what he actually said:
The audio is a kind of sketchy, but Hank says that while he does NOT endorse the FairTax, he does see the need for “fundamental tax reform in this country,” and that he’s willing “to listen.”
Kudos to Hank Johnson for being willing to admit that America’s tax system punishes prosperity and for having an open mind.
