Missouri Republican Representatives Sign-On To Raise Your Taxes

From Americans for Prosperity

A group of 100 U.S. Representatives sent a letter to the so-called Super Committee urging the handpicked group of twelve legislators to consider “all options for mandatory and discretionary spending and revenues” in order to reach the committee’s goal of $1.2 trillion in deficit reduction over the next ten years. In Washington speak, this is code for raising taxes.

Among this list is 40 Republicans whose capitulation encouraging the committee to raise taxes is troubling. We shouldn’t be surprised to see 60 Democrats seizing on the opportunity to drive a wedge between conservatives intent on restoring economic growth by keeping taxes low and Republican lawmakers who are starting to throw in the towel on keeping pressure on Democrats to cut spending.

The letter includes the sentence:

To succeed, all options for mandatory and discretionary spending and revenues must be on the table

In Washington-speak, this means tax increases, and your local House Republican signed the letter.

When you fought against the debt-ceiling increase earlier this year, you knew Tax Increases would be their solution.  And, now you see the fruit of Congress’ Super Committee will indeed include Tax Increases.  Spending will continue to rise at an astronomical rate, the debt will continue to increase, and our children and grandchildren will be further enslaved to the spineless representatives of our current generation.  When will you make them stop?

Contact your Congressman and tell them NOT ONE DIME OF TAX INCREASES UNTIL  YOU BALANCE THE BUDGET. PERIOD!!  A lack of taxation is not the cause of this problem.  IT’S THE SPENDING! STUPID!!

If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention.

Obama World: EPA Assualt On Property Rights

From Phil Kerpen at American’s for Prosperity:

President Obama wants to control all the land and all the water in the United States.

Legislation that would have deleted the word “navigable” from the federal Clean Water Act and given the EPA and Army Corps of Engineers jurisdiction over every drop of moisture in the country crashed and burned last Congress, ending the 36-year congressional career of its lead sponsor, Jim Oberstar, in the process.

But Obama’s EPA, as usual, won’t take no for an answer, and is now attempting to ignore two Supreme Court decisions, commonsense, and the American people and vastly expand federal Clean Water Act jurisdiction via a guidance document.  A bipartisan group of 170 members of Congress told them not to, but they are doing it anyway.

If the EPA and Army Corps succeed, they can exercise effective control over all land and water in the United States.  The green groups are fired up and pouring comments into the docket supporting this outrageous power grab, and we need to fight back.

The docket closes on July 31st, there is no time to spare. Please take action today!

AFP is working to protect us from out-of-control regulatory advances, here from the EPA, and from the FCC and their attack on the freedom and free market of the Internet.  I was fortunate to attend an AFP briefing early this year regarding the FCC Internet takeover, and the information provided was invaluable!

I urge you to support their efforts by subscribing to their informative e-mails and using their simple service to contact your Congressmen (et al) to weigh in on the varying issues of the day.

Their e-mail above provides a link to a simple method by which to contact, in this case, the EPA and the Army Corps of Engineers.  Here is a sample of such an e-mail:

The first time you will be asked to provide the same information you’d be asked to provide on your Congressman or Senator’s web site.  For future mailings, you’ll only need to provide your e-mail address.

It couldn’t be easier!

In this case the FCC is trying to usurp the Constitution and the Congress by asserting power it has not been granted.  Should sound familiar after Obama posed that he wouldn’t mind if he could just make law without that pesky Constitution and Congress.
