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."

Please stop this nonsense of tax increase and start cutting spending. Raising taxes will only damage this economy even further.

We must tell our elected officials that if they compromise their promise not to raise taxes they will pay for it when it comes re-election time.

Raising tax rates will not fix our deficit problems. Only cutting spending, closing loopholes, and putting people back to work thus increasing the number of taxpayers will we see real reform.

How do you know what you are planning to spend if you don't have a budget. The stimulus was temporary; why are you still spending at those levels? This country went over the fiscal cliff years ago. Leave us alone and do your job by cutting spending. You can't tax your way out of this mess that you created.
