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."

If everyone takes and no one gives, there is nothing for anybody. Even the government will no longer exist. I guess then we will truly all be equal. The difference is that I have the gumption to take care of myself and my family and not rely on handouts. I and my family will make it. It's a real shame that others will not.

Our spending in government is unsustainable. Reform entitlements and cut spending. This country will implode shortly going in the spend and tax mode.

I for one am fed up with the American people having to pay for these politicians to play. We have to buckle down and pay while they hardly even pay taxes, most owe back taxes and are over drawn on their government budgets!

Forget about reelection, we put you where you are because we wanted fiscal restraint. Concentrate on formulating a plan to eliminate the national debt and implement it.

Real spending cuts must be enacted before considering any tax increases. Any revenue generated from tax increases should be used solely to pay down the national debt.

Constrain spending, demand POTUS present budget, discontinue erroneous rhetoric that the American people want..., demand a line item veto bill is passed and signed into law, demand a bill is introduced and passed into law to place Executive Orders under close scrutiny, and grow backbones to become men and stop being cowards.

Lowering the marginal tax rates and eliminating deductions along with a decrease in the unsustainable level of spending in Washington is the ONLY way to reduce our deficit and to reduce our debt.
