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."

Get serious about no new taxes and dramatically reduced spending or you will not have a country to run. What about this do you fail to see?

I can't beleive they want even more money! I'm so tired of this. As an example of their superb financial management, the USPS has now posted net losses in 14 of its last 16 quarters. They waste so much of the money they already get, it's time to cut up the credit cards. No more money!!!!!!!
