The House is going to vote tomorrow and Thursday on the proposed plans being submitting to the President concerning this Fiscal Cliff. First we would not be here if The Speaker had not bullied the House into voting to increase the national debt from $14 Trillion Dollars to $16 Trillion Dollars which created the Joint committee (better known as The Super Committee) which was dis-functional and left the President in charge.
I am very much against raising the income tax rate regardless of income because once the government starts raising the income tax rates, they never seem to stop.
The problem is spending. The US Government receives around $6 billion Dollars a day but the government is SPENDING $11 Billions a day. When is it going to stop. That why I want my congressman to vote against any increase in income tax rate and increasing tax rates (revenue). In addition I want him to vote against raising the national debt. It has to stop before we become Greece.
Two things must happen: STOP the spending and Baseline Budgeting.
As Ross Reeve, American Thinker stated:
It is probably too late to avoid either capitulating or going off the cliff. In either event, the Republicans nevertheless need to get refocused on a core strategy: do not increase spending or taxes unless there is an approved budget providing for it. The message is simple, and goes to the heart of the Democrats’ undeniable refusal to exercise fiscal prudence: No budget, no money. Imagine the talking points.
In the course of taking a budget-based stand, the Republicans may very well get whacked, but the Democrats will not be able to evade their complicity in the problem. People understand budgets.
