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."

Candidates who advocate and fight for decreased spending are the only candidates who I will ever vote for again. It is time for the public to take control and stop the fleecing of Americans by our elected "leaders."

The Republicans in the U.S. congress are losing the media war. They need to start being more vocal and turning the blame and mind games on tv against the democrats. Unfortunately being nice doesn't win elections, look at Obama no record drama towards Romney and he gets reelected. Quit being manipulated by the democrats and it being personified on tv. We need to reverse the role and play a better chess game people.

Please name one business or household where your allowed to be successful indefinitly when your I/E statement is not balanced or profitable? The solution is simple, don't spend more than you have in your bank account just like every American and American company has to live. No more taxes that allow more spending, its time to limit expenses!

They supposedly work for us. It is time for the people to stop treating these politicians like kings and queens and treat them like anyone else. Force them to get to work on the real problems (spending) or get out.

For the sake of this once Great Country, DO NOT RAISE TAXES ON ANYONE! Stand your ground and do not cave to the Democrats. Push for cutting all the waste and duplication that is rampant in Washington DC. Our Country is depending on you to do what is right. Let the Dems fail on their own.

It is time for spending cuts and someone to stop all the fraud and abuse. And stop throwing money away on companies the private sector should be picking and not the government. It is time to tighten the belt and watch over ther money like it is coming out of your wallet.
