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 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.
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:
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:
And Democrat Lloyd Doggett of Texas told the Chronicle:
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.

Tell them to read your lips: Tell them that you want NO NEW TAXES. And tell them to support and put the American Taxpayer Bill of Rights — which calls for the ERADICATION of the tax code and requires a balanced budget — on the fast track.

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.
And what’s the alternative?
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.
The American Taxpayer Bill of Rights is no pipe-dream.
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.
