One week ago, Capitol Hill was swarming with dealers. During AIADA’s border adjustment fly-in international nameplate dealers from every corner of the country came to Washington, D.C., to lobby against the proposed 20 percent border adjustment tax (BAT). FOX News political analyst Dr. Charles Krauthammer kicked things off on Wednesday night, followed by a series of educational and entertaining speakers the next morning. We then began our day-long assault on Capitol Hill. In all, more than 230 meetings were held with Members of Congress and their staff.
Welcome to Paul on Point – the blog my children, and grandchildren, are shocked I am writing.
I can’t blame them. Personally, I never envisioned myself as a blogger, but I am thankful to the past AIADA chairmen who started this online tradition. The Chairman’s Blog is a direct line to AIADA members, and I’m looking forward to using it to share the unvarnished realities I see in my role as Chairman.
