Atlanta Out Loud

Politics and rantings and just stuff that catches my attention.

An update from Congressman John Linder:
From mid-May of this year through the end of September-more than four months-not a single member of Congress added his or her name to the FairTax bill. Yet, in just the last 45 days, amid a flurry of constituent phone calls, letters and town hall meetings, seven Congressmen and Senators have asked that their names be added.
The seven new co-sponsors are: Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK), Congressman Henry Brown (R-SC), Congressman Dan Burton (R-IN), Congressman John Carter (R-TX), Congressman John "Jimmy" Duncan (R-TN), Congressman Duncan Hunter (R-CA), Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-CO). All Republicans.

Progress... slow but sure.
