House Speaker John Boehner is on the verge of yet another
surrender to President Obama and the Progressive Agenda. Boehner is rounding up
establishment Republicans, trying to force them to roll over and increase taxes.
In a matter of hours, Boehner will hold a vote on “Plan B.”
Washington insiders are spinning this proposal as a thoughtful compromise,
while it actually does nothing to address America’s fiscal crisis.
While Boehner’s “Plan B” would preserve income tax rates for
many Americans, it still results in a net tax increase. Payroll taxes are set
to increase on all workers. The estimated revenue from the tax increases will not make a dent in the national debt. Real spending cuts and
entitlement reform are needed to get the country’s spending addiction under
Regardless of the inside-the-Beltway double-speak, Boehner’s
“Plan B” is a tactic that will lead to a tax hike. The economy is still on the mend, and
tax increases will only make a bad situation worse. Hardworking Americans need
more take home pay; not less.
The vote is scheduled for tonight (12/20) at 7:30 PM EST. Call your
representative now and tell them to oppose Boehner’s surrender!
