Congress is coming back for a brief session before the election. At the top of their to-do list is new taxes. They need your guidance . . .
You can borrow from or copy my sample letter . . .
I understand that Congress will be considering whether or not to extend the tax cuts passed during the Bush administration. Please be clear about this . . .
- The problem with our economy is NOT that we pay too little in taxes, but that we pay too much.
- The cure for our economy is NOT to raise taxes, but to cut government spending and all the meddling you guys do.
- In addition, please don’t think you’ll win praise from me by only raising taxes on the so-called wealthiest Americans. These are precisely the people who finance new products, services, and jobs.
- Yes, the deficit is a concern. Address the concern by CUTTING SPENDING, not by raising taxes.
I’m paying attention to what you do.
Jim Babka, President
