Tell Congress: No $7 Trillion Tax Hike

It's time we do the RIGHT thing for the American people and cut spending so that the private sector can thrive.

So now we know exactly where House Democrats stand. We knew that if they ever produced a budget it would be full of tax hikes and spending increases, but we never thought they would go this far!

Liberal House Democrats of the Congressional Progressive Caucus unveiled a budget on Monday that would increase taxes by $4.7 trillion more than President Obama proposed in his own budget! Remember, Obama proposed tax hikes of $1.5 trillion, but keen eyes at the Heritage Foundation exposed that number to be closer to $2 trillion.

Which means that Democrats want to raise taxes by nearly $7 TRILLION over the next decade!

They can't take all that money from the top 1%. Taking every penny from them would yield a one-time grab of about $930 billion. They couldn't tax the rich enough over ten years to achieve $7 trillion of revenue!

And that's assuming people would give up that much of their hard earned money willingly and without any behavior modifications.

So where will the money come from?

They can only take so much from businesses without shutting them down, changing the way they do business or completely crippling the economy. So the rest of that $7 trillion will have to come from YOU!

That's right, hard-working, middle class Americans. The very Americans President Barack Obama promised he wouldn't raise taxes on!

Sign the petition below and send your free messages to lawmakers in the House and the Senate. Tell them NOT TO COMPROMISE on budgeting; Demand they say NO to tax hikes and YES to budget cuts.

It`s time to take out all the garbage from federal to state levels NOW IS THE TIME for this country to speak to the political sector by VOTING this crap out.

Welfare would be a good start. No additional money after the 2nd child, and it stops when that one turns 18. Also must show fathers name on birth certificate and prove US citizenship.

Why do all their cuts seem to be on items that we have already paid for like Social Security. Why don'e they ever come up with brillant ideas like cutting all benifits and entitlement programs to anyone illegal. Cleaning up the existing entitlement programs from fraud. Make food cards only good one food and no cash back as I see all the time. I stood behind a lady waiting with nothing and I already knew her plan. Sure enough, I need mints and yes some cash will do nicely. What a concept. That would save billions, but they never have good solutions, only ones that hurt the American citizens in trying to force their issues on us.

Since Obama took office, I earn about 10% of what I used to earn (before he took office). I used to pay around $70k in taxes, but now I pay no (income) taxes and I receive food stamps. How is this helping our country? I'm not the only one in this situation! This can be fixed with lowering taxes and by helping businesses that employ Americans and spend their money in America. Please put America first.

With liberals, it is no longer tax. It's extortion money. “Pay up or we will destroy you”. The fee starts out small and slowly increases per their greed. Instead of cutting expenses, they find more reasons to take your money.
