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."

The government must make spending cuts just like every working man has made since 2007.

Start cutting the size of our government and cut the spending. You can not tax us out of the mess you have created. Learn to live within the money you already receive as we have to.

We have a spending problem not a revenue problem, besides the tax increases proposed will do NOTHING to pay down the debt and the Democrats know that.

If they put tax hikes on the table and do not put serious cuts in spending in any package, then I think that the entire federal govt should have to give up their entire paycheck, all their perks, etc. until this country is back in the black.

It's sad and dishonest that "educated" people will not acknowledge that to tax something is to diminish the resource value that creates it.

No to new taxes. The gov't has enough of my money already. If I am I personally am in debt my creditors cut me off. Consider yourselves cut off from our money and fix your addiction to our money.

Please honor commitment to not raise taxes. It's not just about the money, it's about too much power in the hands of the federal government. Gandhi said, "Non-cooperation with evil is a duty".

Our government takes enough of our hard earned dollars to pay for entitlements. Let us hold on to the paychecks we have earned. Thats what we are entitled to. Get rid of social security so I can do whats best for me and my family through my own long term planning. I have less people to worry about than the government and I know what works and is better for my family than the government.
