Federal income Tax Hike Poposed by Democrat traitors

 Center for Individual Freedom

 

Your federal income tax bill is about to go up a whopping 61%.

And no, we’re not talking about taxes on “the rich.”  We’re talking about YOUR TAXES – if you’re the bread-winner in a middle-income family of four that earns $60,000.00 a year.

But that’s not all:

Are you elderly and living on a fixed income? You and your spouse are about to see your tax bill go up 156%.

Are you a single woman, trying to make ends meet? You could be one of the 83 million American women who could see your taxes go up by an average of $2,068.

And if you’re married, you could be one of the 48 million married couples who will pay an average of $2,899 more under the liberal tax increase.

Yes, this is a nightmare scenario.  But unfortunately it is very real!

We’re talking about the record setting $400,000,000,000.00 tax increase — the largest tax increase in American history – that Nancy Pelosi and her liberal colleagues in Congress just proposed last week.

We’re talking about a tax increase that was being planned behind closed doors by Pelosi’s lieutenants in Congress while they were scheming to cut-off funds to our troops and while Pelosi was finalizing her travel plans to terrorist supporting Syria.

But there’s more:

According to former-Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, who recently discussed the above figures, this new Pelosi tax increase will:

Raise the 10% Tax Bracket to 15%: More than five million families and individuals who previously owed no taxes will become subject to taxation.

Eliminate Marriage Penalty Relief for over 23 million Americans.

And cut the Child Tax Credit in Half for over 31 million Americans.

Can anything be done to stop Pelosi and her gang of liberal tax and spenders? 

The answer is an unqualified, “YES.”

Congressman Bob Goodlatte and Former House Majority Leader Dick Armey have joined with members of the House Republican Study Committee (RSC) and are pushing the American Taxpayer Bill of Rights; a legislative agenda that will ensure that you and I are able to keep more of our hard-earned money.

We can STOP the tax-and-spend liberals in Congress… but only if you make your voice heard RIGHT HERE AND RIGHT NOW!

We must be BOLD. 

We must push an agenda of permanent tax relief for the average American. 

We must pass the provisions of the American Taxpayer Bill of Rights into law.

What Can The Average Person Do To Stop The Largest Tax Increase In American History?

You might ask, what can grassroots Americans like you and your fellow CFIF activists do to stop this madness? 

The answer is simple.

The liberals in Congress know that average, hardworking Americans hate taxes.

That’s why they campaigned on a platform of “fiscal responsibility” in 2006 — or to put it in Pelosi’s own words during an appearance on CNBC’s Kudlow & Company last October: “…fiscal responsibility is a key component of our agenda.”

And that’s why they’re relying on SECRECY.

According to Gingrich, liberals are attempting to stifle debate on these tax increases by “making sure that amendments to the budget bill to reverse these tax increases will never get a vote on the floor of the House.”

And of course, they’re calling it something it is NOT – a budget balancing measure instead of what it really is… the largest tax increase in American history.

Pelosi and her liberal cohorts in Congress are actually claiming that the $400 BILLION in additional tax burdens they want to impose on American families is not a tax increase.

Huh?  That’s right.  They are saying that because it allows existing tax cuts to expire, that it is technically not a tax increase.

I don’t know about you, but if I am forced to hand over an additional $2,641.00 of my hard-earned money every year to the IRS, what else can you call it but a massive tax increase?

Here’s what Focus on the Family wrote:

“Brian Riedl, senior budget analyst for the Heritage Foundation, said liberals are working hard to convince Americans they’re not really raising taxes.”

“‘The fact is… tax rates will increase and the government will begin collecting hundreds of billions of dollars… A scheduled tax increase is still a tax increase.’

“The average tax hike per household would be more than $2,641 annually. In addition, the child tax credit would be reduced from $1,000 per child to $500, and the marriage penalty would be brought back into the tax code.

“According to Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, if the president’s tax relief is not made permanent, a family of four earning $50,000 would see taxes go up 132 percent. A single parent with two children earning $30,000 would see taxes raised 67 percent.

“And the billions lifted from America’s families would all be spent by bureaucrats, Riedl said.

“‘That’s money that could otherwise go for groceries, child expenses, school expenses, the mortgage and bills,’ he said.”

But to add insult to injury, Members of the Democratic Leadership are not beyond telling some real whoppers!

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, when confronted with truth about the largest tax increase in American history, Democrat Steny Hoyer had the audacity to claim that Republicans were lying: 

“Hoyer said they were engaged in a lie, although he couldn’t bring himself to say that. ‘There’s a three-letter word for that that I won’t use,’ he said of the Republican claims.”

And Democrat Lloyd Doggett of Texas told the Chronicle:

“The Republicans live in a world of make-believe. But instead of imaginary friends, they have imaginary demons — imaginary tax increases.”

But there’s nothing “make-believe” about $400 billion in taxes.

We can stop this massive tax increase but we need your help.

When we jam the fax machines of these congressional leaders, they will know that the truth is out and they will back down.

But we must act now!

And While We’re At It, Let’s Eradicate The Tax Code

You read that right! 

We’re not just going to drive a stake through the heart of the Pelosi tax increase.  We’re going to take our Congressional leaders to task, hold their feet to the fire and force them to keep the promises they made to the American people.

And we can start with the the Tax Code Termination Act — a provision of American Taxpayer Bill of Rights which already has 80 bipartisan co-sponsors.

According to Congressman Bob Goodlatte, the Tax Code Termination Act, will repeal the entire tax code, except portions that deal with Social Security and Medicare by December 31, 2010, and calls on Congress to approve a new Federal tax system by July of the same year.”

Goodlatte again:    “The Tax Code Termination Act will force Congress to finally debate and address fundamental tax reform.  Whichever simpler and fairer tax system is adopted, the key ingredients should be: a low rate for all Americans; tax relief for working people; protection of the rights of taxpayers and reduction in tax collection abuses; promotion of savings and investment; and encouragement of economic growth and job creation.”

And what’s the alternative?

If Nancy Pelosi and the liberals in Congress get their way, we’re looking at a record tax increase that will hit rich and poor alike.

It’s time to draw a line in the sand now and let our elected leaders in both Houses of Congress know that you will tolerate nothing short of swift passage of the American Taxpayer Bill of Rights.

And What About A Balanced Budget?

The American Taxpayer Bill of Rights calls for that as well.

Another key provision is H.J. Res. 1 which calls for a balanced budget amendment and forces Congress to enact fiscally responsible spending measures.

More specifically, the balanced budget amendment requires that Congress not spend more than it receives in revenues, requires the President to submit a balanced budget to Congress, and requires a 3/5 majority vote to increase the debt limit. 

So far, H.J. Res. 1 has almost 160 bipartisan cosponsors.

The American Taxpayer Bill of Rights is no pipe-dream. 

Measures to eradicate the tax code passed in the House of Representatives in 1998 and 2000;

49 states presently have a balanced budget requirement and,

Legislation similar to H.J. Res. 1 passed the House in 1995 by a margin of 300-132.

Nancy Pelosi may be Speaker of the House but measures similar to the American Taxpayer Bill of Rights have passed with BIPARTISAN support in the past because Republicans and Democrats alike were told how you feel.

When they’re allowed to act under the cover of darkness, they do what THEY want — and that includes raising your taxes.

When you hold their feet to the fire, they do what YOU want.

Iran Expands Uranium Enrichment

Iran Expands Uranium Enrichment

p {margin:12px 0px 0px 0px;}NATANZ, Iran (AP) – Iran announced Monday that it has begun enriching uranium with 3,000 centrifuges, defiantly expanding a nuclear program that has drawn U.N. sanctions and condemnation from the West.President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said at a ceremony at the enrichment facility at Natanz that Iran was now capable of enriching nuclear fuel “on an industrial scale.”

Asked if Iran has begun injecting uranium gas into 3,000 centrifuges for enrichment, top nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani replied, “Yes.” He did not elaborate, but it was the first confirmation that Iran had installed the larger set of centrifuges after months of saying it intends to do so. Until now, Iran was only known to have 328 centrifuges operating.

Uranium enrichment can produce fuel for a nuclear reactor or the material for a nuclear warhead. The United States and its allies accuse Iran of intending to produce weapons, a charge the country denies.

Sean McCormack, the State Department spokesman, said the U.N. Security Council and the U.N. nuclear watchdog group “don’t believe Iran’s assurances that their (nuclear) program is peaceful in nature.”

The White House also criticized the announcment.

“Iran continues to defy the international community and further isolate itself by expanding its nuclear program, rather than suspending uranium enrichment,” said Gordon Johndroe, a spokesman for the National Security Council.

The Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency, the U.N. nuclear watchdog, had no immediate comment on Monday’s announcement.

The United Nations has vowed to ratchet up sanctions as long as Iran refuses to suspend enrichment. The Security Council first imposed limited sanctions in December, then increased them slightly last month and has set a new deadline of late May.

“What we are looking for are reasonable Iranian leaders who view the cost-benefit calculation and see that it is not to the benefit of the Iranian people to continue to pursue the course on which they find themselves,” McCormack said.

Michael Levi, a fellow for science and technology at the Council on Foreign Relations, was skeptical of the Iranian claims. He said by his calculations, the capabilities Iran has just announced would provide 10 percent of the material needed to run its plant.

“To me, that’s not industrial scale,” Levi said. “An industrial-scale facility is a facility that can support your industry.”

On the other hand, “from a political perspective, it’s more important to have them in place than to have them run properly,” he explained since the announcement stirs up support and patriotism at home, and the international community has almost no way to verify how well the program is working.

“Iran looks to be moving its nuclear program along on a political schedule rather than a technical schedule,” Levi said.

Levi marveled that Iran has the power to cause such a stir with an announcement. He noted that most of the time, world leaders complain they can’t trust Iran, “except when they say something really scary, we take them at their word.”

In his speech, Ahmadinejad insisted Iran has been cooperative with the U.N. nuclear watchdog, allowing it inspections of its facilities, but he warned, “Don’t do something that will make this great nation reconsider its policies” in a reference to the threat of increased U.N. sanctions.

“With great honor, I declare that as of today our dear country has joined the nuclear club of nations and can produce nuclear fuel on an industrial scale,” Ahmadinejad said.

Larijani said his country was willing to offer assurances that its program is peaceful. But he said the West must accept its nuclear program as a fact: “We do not give in our rights.”

On April 9, 2006, Iran announced it had first enriched uranium using an array of 164 centrifuges.

Across Iran, school bells rang on Monday to mark the “national day of nuclear energy.” The government sent out text messages of congratulations for the occasion to millions of mobile phone users.

In Tehran, some 200 students formed a human chain at Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization while chanting “death to America” and “death to Britain.” The students burnt flags of the U.S. and Britain.

Experts say the Natanz plant needs between 50,000 to 60,000 centrifuges to consistently produce fuel for a reactor or build a warhead.

In the enrichment process, uranium gas is pumped into a “cascade” of thousands of centrifuges, which spin the gas at supersonic speeds to purify it. Uranium enriched to a low level, at least 3 percent, can be used as fuel, while at a far higher level, more than 90 percent, it can be used to build a weapon.

Also Monday, Iranian state television reported that an Iranian Revolutionary Guard general who is under travel restrictions urged by the sanctions visited Russia without any difficulty.

Gen. Mohammad Baqer Zolqadr, who is also deputy interior minister for security affairs, was quoted on the state TV Web site as saying that his six-day journey to Moscow, which ended Monday, showed “the ineffectiveness of the resolution.”

The resolution urges all governments to ban visits by the 15 individuals and says that should such visits occur – presumably for exceptional circumstances – the countries should notify a U.N. committee.

Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Andrei Krivtsov confirmed that Zolqadr visited Russia. He told The Associated Press that the resolution does not prohibit visits by the listed individuals, but calls for heightened vigilance “directed first of all at people who are directly related to nuclear programs” – suggesting that Zolqadr was not.

Tensions are also high between Iran and the West following the 13-day detention of 15 British sailors by Iran. The sailors, who were seized by Revolutionary Guards off the Iraqi coast, were released on Wednesday, but since then have said they were put under psychological pressure by their captors to force them to “confess” to being in Iranian waters when captured, angering many in Britain.
