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."

It is time for government to live within its means. No new taxes that will cause the fools that have been elected by other fools to spend more because they HAVE more. It will just be MORE of LESS. Working people and INVESTORS need to have their OWN money to use as THEY see fit. I am all for assisting those who are disabled and/or mentally challenged, but I draw the line at the LAZY and GREEDY. I am a business man, and I want to make a profit so I can invest it in MY future. What is wrong with that. If you have ever thought of being your own boss, let me know. I might be able to help. freedomfromajob@yahoo.com
