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 middle class is being "squeezed tighter and tighter" and controlled, the rich get richer. We must put a stop to this now!

I also want Congress to stand strong agains giving illegals free education and free entitlements. We need to take care of the US Citizens first and too many of us are unemployed and/or struggeling to make ends meet. It's awful how this country has allowed for this to happen and it's time to stop it.

The house Republicans need to stand fast against tax revenue increases without entitlement reforms. Our country cannot continue on this fiscal path - a disaster is coming!

Cut spending first, then start talking about tax code reform. A flat tax would be a nice solution.
