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."

Why is it that the poor people like me have to pay the most taxes per dollar? And why do the rich just keep getting richer while people like myself can't get a break?

Enough is enough. Time to start cutting I don't care which party you're affiliated with. If you want to raise taxes on the rich nothing is stopping you from writing a check for more than you owe. GET OUT OF OUR WALLETS!!

Sick and tired of the non stop spending. Do you jobs and cut all this waste. If you have trouble figuring it out, ask us that run a household budget how to cut waste, it is not rocket science people. I am bringing home the same amount of money since 2008 working for the state of GA, no raises and higher taxes. SICK OF IT!

Make changes in Medicare that are a true reform. It is in everyone's interest. See National review online Article by John Goodman and proposals by former Medicare trustee Thomas Saving. These make sense.

Please, the middle income and elderly CANNOT come up with thousands to pay in taxes. Please be kind and do the right thing. If the affluent pay more, they are more suited to do so.

To vote for a tax hike of any manner or complexion is to violate the trust of the people and to admit that you are in business in Congress only for YOURSELF. Please do not betray what the American people have entrusted to you.
