Joe The Plumber and MI FairTax Director to Speak at Traverse City Tea Party/Town Hall

Joe "the Plumber" Wurzelbacher will return to Northern Michigan this Saturday, May 16th for a Tea Party/town hall at the Traverse City Civic Center.
An outspoken advocate for Michigan's organized effort to bring truth in taxation and jobs to Michigan via the MI FairTax, Joe the Plumber will join a panel of speakers at 5:00 p.m. for open conversations with local residents.

Joe the Plumber has been pro-active in reaching out to Michiganders hurt by the economy, headlining rallies in Petoskey and Lansing earlier this spring. Joe has continued to shed light on the importance for tax reform in Michigan and at the national level.

This time Joe will be joined by MI FairTax Director, Roger Buchholtz. They will discuss how this simple tax reform proposal, the MI FairTax, will allow Michigan labor and business to compete in the global economy without the burden of taxes being hidden in the price of their products.

"More and more groups are organizing in protest of our state's economic decline and our failed tax structure," Buchholtz said. "The Michigan FairTax Association (MFTA), a statewide organization dedicated to true tax reform, is assisting citizens at the Tea Parties in their expression of exasperation about the direction of our state and failure to take corrective action."
