NTU Covers CPACPosted by Dan Barrett - February 18, 2010
The National Taxpayers Union will be covering this year’s CPAC, the Conservative Political Action Conference
, being held in Washington DC. It is one of the largest organizing events between grassroots organizers, political leaders, and everyday citizens. This three-day event will feature well-known national figures such as:
- Nationally syndicated radio talk show hosts Herman Cain and Glenn Beck
- Governors Bob McConnell and Tim Pawlenty
- Former Massachusetts Governor and former Presidential Candidate Mitt Romney
- Senator Jim DeMint
- Representatives Ron Paul, Thaddeus McCotter, Steve King, Michelle Bachmann, Darrell Issa, John Boehner, and Tom Price
As the speeches and panels detail a national dialogue of the year’s theme, Saving Freedom, NTU will be right there commentating, examining, and contributing on Government Bytes. Join NTU at CPAC over the next three days and add your own ideas to the national discussion!

NTU has been a long-time supporter and friend of the FairTax movement. I'm just curious if anyone at NTU has any comments regarding the decision by those who are developing the Contract From America to reword the TOP issue as voted by thousands of contributors, that is, "Implement the FairTax," to simply read "Enact Fundamental Tax Reform." Could it be political? Hmm. Let's see. Dick Armey and Grover Norquist (big Flat Tax supporters) are going to join in the discussion. But we can't wave the FairTax in their face can we? That would not be the PC thing to do. This happens every time the people get a chance to vote: they overwhelmingly choose the FairTax. And then politics enters the picture and the idea gets shoved aside. How am I supposed to support the Tea Party Movement when it starts to look like just another special interest movement, ignoring the very people that made it relevant in the first place?
