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."

also defund Obamacare, defund the EPA, defund the tzars, they are all unconstitutional. Tell American people cuts need to be made if the country is to survive. Too many believe the libs lies. A president who wins the election by massive voter fraud does NOT have a mandate. He has a lack of integrity and no respect.

This country does not need more taxes. It needs to stop spending taxpayer money on frivolous things like 17 day presidential vacations. Stop paying money to foreign dictators like Egypt, Syria, Libya. Stop sending our hard earned money to Afghanistan and Pakistan and rich oil producing nations. Stop paying illegal aliens to invade our nation by giving away free food stamps, housing, health care and education and paying illegal aliens welfare for every child they have. No wonder they are invading like cockroaches. And last but not least, Congress does not deserve a raise every year when the rest of the nation is struggling to find work. You have done a shitty job--- you don't deserve a raise!
