HouseStandStrong.com: No Lame Duck Tax Hikes

Messages Sent So Far

President Obama was narrowly reelected, but the American people did not vote for tax hikes.  In fact, one of Obama's major campaign themes was the claim that Romney wanted to raise taxes.  The 2012 election was a status quo election; Obama was returned to the White House, but Republicans retained the House because the American people want them to continue to exercise a check and balance.

The strong House opposition to tax hikes was vindicated, not rejected, by the election.

Moreover, given the extraordinarily weak economic recovery the country faces, it would be an enormous mistake to raise any taxes and risk tipping the economy back into recession.

Please sign below to tell your Member of Congress: "We urge you to stand strong against any tax hikes in the lame duck session."

He will only use it to support Illegal Aliens or Pour it into ObamaCare, both of which are money pits and useless.

We, the American People, already pay enough taxes. As Representatives of the People, make NO tax increase for any American! America would be helped if there are tax cuts for all and REAL major spending CUTS. All federal legislators and employees need to be under the same retirement and healthcare systems as the citizens they serve.

We are already paying for all of your salaries, vacations, entertaining, and oh yes, your wonderful retirement, and insurance that is not Obamacare. Cut out the wasteful spending, take a pay cut, give up your wonderful retirement that you don't earn and give the money back to the government for the fiscal cliff and leave us alone.

Our Public Serpents are the cause of all our problems. We gave them law to obey written in the Constitution and they won't obey them. Why? So they can keep themselves more raises for job well done? They all need pay cuts.

You in Washington have a spending problem! Get a budget! Flat tax would be fair! Get your house in order- way too much waste! Freeze spending accounts- freeze hiring- no million dollar retreats-look at subsidies - some not necessary! There is a lot you can do before raising taxes! Get busy! Go thru Obamacare and stop the insanity of new taxes that will destroy our economy!!!
