AFFT Membership Project


The new Americans For Fair Taxation (AFFT) grassroots leadership has kicked off a membership drive to increase paid member numbers and to acquire much needed funds to support our Mission to "Pass the FairTax®. 

A seismic shift in power in 2014 reignited the discussions in Washington on tax reform. The day after the election AFFT's Executive Director received a call from the senior Congressional aide of a major HR 25 co-sponsor who said the Member wanted to know if the grassroots were actively supporting the FairTax campaign now that they were in charge of governance.  Since Rep. Kevin Brady took over chairmanship of the House Ways and Means Committee, more talk of "real" tax reform is coming from the congress.

And at an event with high wealth individuals, she was asked the same question by several attendees. 

If you have not yet signed up for your AFFT paid membership, please do so today. 

We have paid memberships for as little as $5. We must be able to proudly say YES and give solid evidence to back up our claim. One way to convey that support is to share how many Americans have become paid members of AFFT. So talk to your friends, your family and your neighbors. 

Instead of buying one $10 membership for yourself, buy one $5 membership for yourself and a $5 membership for your friend or neighbor. That way we have two paid memberships towards our ultimate goal. But please, make sure they support the FairTax and are willing to receive more communication from AFFT. 

And if you are a recurring donor, thank you, thank you, and thank you! Your gift is more critical today than it has ever been. Please make sure you read the Chairman’s Report each week to see how your gift is helping to advance the FairTax legislation.

Michelangelo, whose breathtaking paintings adorn the Sistine Chapel, is unmistakably one of the greatest artists to have ever lived. He said, “The greatest danger to most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short, but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.” 

The 114th Congress promises to address tax reform. However, is it going to be the Washington, D.C. and lobbyist version of tax reform – really not reform at all – or is it going to be real tax reform with the FairTax? The people’s mandate for action gives us a unique window of opportunity to let Congress know that they are demanding a growing economy and better jobs, and the only tax reform that assures this is the FairTax. 

And make no mistake. FairTax supporters in Congress are watching to see if we have the broad support we claim we have.

That’s why we're challenging you to recruit five new paid members between now and March 1, when the Alabama primary is conducted. When we are then asked by our senators and representatives to demonstrate how the grassroots has embraced the FairTax Plan, we can proudly show that hundreds of thousands of patriotic Americans have signed on to support the FairTax.
