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 president has no mandate to raise taxes, as evidenced by the fact that the public kept the House in Republican hands. Any new or increased taxes at this time with the economy so fragile would plunge the country into a new recession. The House must remain strong and united against any such action.

Please repeal the health care law, it will not work as it is written and it was forced on us against our wishes by the folks who stated "we have to sign it in to law for you to see what is in it."
