PostSubject: Rand Paul's Latest Petition   Wed Aug 14, 2013 11:11 am

NO TAX HIKES PERIOD

http://www.rand-2016.com/welcome_taxes.aspx?pid=new4


Rand Paul for Senate 2016


Have you noticed something suspicious about your paychecks this year?

Thanks to Obama and big-spending politicians from both parties, hardworking Americans like you will see a combined income loss of $125 billion.

They think they can spend YOUR money better than you can!

And it is going to get worse as the “fiscal cliff” is revisited this Spring.

If you listen to Washington insiders, the media elite, and the big spenders on Capitol Hill - the only solution will be massive tax hikes.

But the truth is we don't have a revenue problem in Washington. We have a spending problem.

Sadly, establishment Republicans are poised, yet again, to trade tax hikes for spending cuts that will never come.

Some of my Republican colleagues are even "warming up" to the idea of hiking taxes as a "solution" to our economic problems.

That's why I'm counting on you to sign your No Tax Hikes petition IMMEDIATELY.

Like most conservatives, I understand further tax hikes would unquestionably make things worse.

The last message you and I should be sending Washington is that it needs more money.

I don't want the government to have more revenue.

I want YOU to have more money in your pockets. Money YOU earned.

When I was first elected in 2010, I made a pledge to the good folks of Kentucky that I would never vote to hike taxes.

And as a man of my word, a pledge is not something I'm going to go back on.

Instead, I'm going to lead the fight to cut spending and stop any new tax hikes the big spenders try to ram through Congress.

I'm sure you agree the solution to our economic problems isn't higher taxes on hard-working Americans.

The solution is for my fellow Republicans to stand up unashamedly in the fight against any attempt to raise our taxes.

Can I count on you to stand with me by signing your No Tax Hikes petition right away?

As I'm sure you remember, last year we had a huge controversy over raising the debt ceiling.

Eventually, a "compromise" that automatic cuts that would take place if a special "Super Committee" failed to cut spending was reached.

Guess what? They failed.

Not only did the committee fail to find cuts - they now want to get rid of the automatic cuts, jack up our taxes and raise the debt ceiling again.

This is insanity!

Unfortunately, many of my Republican colleagues are giving in, unwilling to protect conservative values.

That's why it's never been more important constitutional conservatives like you stand up and demand Congress oppose any new tax increases.

So please, sign your No Tax Hikes petition right away.

My goal is to circulate your petition - along with hundreds of thousands of others - to members of Congress to put them on notice that the American people are tired of the big government, big spending status quo in Washington.

Of course, you and I certainly have our work cut out for us. The recent election proved this to be truer than ever.

But I'm confident that together you and I can stop the Big Government, big spending establishment in Washington from passing new tax hikes.

In Liberty,

Senator Rand Paul

P.S. After being defeated in the recent elections, many establishment Republicans are talking about caving in to the Democrats' demands for massive tax hikes.

You and I must stop this madness by standing firm for our conservative principles.

Agree.

In addition, we need to stop increasing the debt limit. Politician doubletalk suggests we are conquering the deficit problems. If that is true, why do we need to increase the debt limit?

I'll be the first to admit that I am not an economist, but it doesn't make any sense to me... why do we have to make our descendants pay for our lifestyle?

Could not agree more, Eric! It doesn't take an economist to figure out we're being lied to.

It would be amazing to see the wasteful spending ...projects....and studies the government funds....the foreign aid that is handed out especially to the nations that are against us...government growth rather than downsizing the depatrments/agencies that need to be...Then getting into the entitlement programs...pretty simple that those that are capable of working do what most of us have done all our lives....WORK!...Emphasis on those that are ABLE to work...And yet with all the waste...the politicians continue to spend and waste more passing along the bill to future generations...Goes back to an old saying....HOW DO THEY SLEEP AT NIGHT....but to futher aggravate the situation it's the voters that continue to elect and re-elect these clowns even though they have records of doing exactly what we can't stand...It's not one party or the other...both are and have been gulity thus ending in the mess that we are in...

Good post!

And, I might add that ALL pay taxes. I'll begrudge them less when all pay. Fair tax, sales tax: whatever. This systems sucks.
