  1. You’ll have to enlighten us — I haven’t seen any legislation backed by the Congressional leadership that is proposing lots of new taxes, especially not the “largest tax hike in American history”, as the Club For Growth post says. (The recent tax cuts expire on their own with no legislation needed.) And I’m sure that this doesn’t take into account that proposals to give the middle class a tax break while allowing the recent tax cuts to expire for only the highest-earning taxpayers.

    Bubbs, not extending the tax cuts has the same effect tax increase, less money in our pockets. They also don’t touch entitlement reform which you need for long term fiscal health. In addition, the Democrats have said they would allow some tax cuts to continue but haven’t voted to extended or enumerate them yet.

    Second, the more money government has, the more it wastes. You will kill this economy with an unnecessary $900 billion tax increase to fund a higher welfare state, and the American people will feel it and the Middle Class will feel it, just like we did in the Clinton years with Clinton’s middle class tax increases.

  3. So why was it again that we didn’t see entitlement reform during the 4 years the Republicans controlled the House, Senate, and the Presidency? And why did this same group run up huge deficits? I think the heart of conservatism should be to operate with balanced books. Personally, I’d be willing to pay more taxes if it would balance the budget and fully fund the War.

  4. Adam Graham [Member] said

    Becuase they weren’t good Republicans and no that’s not the heart of conservatism. You can have 100% of people’s income go to the government and the budget be balanced. No, conservatism does balance the books, but it also insures that opportunity exists in the economy and that people have a chance to get ahead. Without the Bush tax cuts and my ability to control my own money, I’d probably still be in a trailer park in Garden City. That’d be okay with you, not with me.

    In addition, this money is going towards HUGE, HUGE, HUGE new social spending. That’s at the heart of the New Democrat budget and if you’re going to tell me that all this new spending is “at the heart of conservatism” than you don’t know jack about conservatism.
