Tax Hikes Coming From Super Congress?
The Dirty Debt Deal “Super Committee” has not even officially convened, yet these elite members are already angling to use their super-legislative powers to RAISE YOUR TAXES.
In a high-profile Op-Ed in the Wall Street Journal, three Democratic members of the Super Committee (Sens. Baucus, Murray and Kerry) sent a very strong and clear signal that they will be pressing for tax increases to be included in the Super Committee’s conclusions.
Unfortunately for America, both sides of the political divide are spinning ti for political gain.
The key to a deal may be changing the tax code in a way that allows Democrats to say revenues were increased, while letting Republicans say taxes werenâ€™t raised. In the meantime, Wednesdayâ€™s op-eds are early salvos before the parties return to Washington early next month and the real talks begin, with a short deadline of Nov. 23 for reaching a deal.
They called for a “balanced plan” that involves “shared sacrifices” — both code phrases for TAX INCREASES that come straight out of the Obama-Big Government playbook.
Meanwhile, House GOP leaders are also issuing the GOP version of TAX INCREASE CODE WORDS…
Boehner and Cantor are now talking openly that they support “tax reforms” that make the tax code “more fair by closing loopholes.”
And this entire process of debt reduction (and tax increases) is being controlled by a 12-member super-empowered Super Committee that is at best a legislative mockery and at worst possibly unconstitutional!
What can we do to stop it?
Today we’re not just reporting on this as news (it’s HUGE news), we’re also calling for action. Grassfire Nation is currently running a national petition that is being delivered directly to members of the Super Committee.
THIS UNCONSTITUTIONAL SUPER COMMITTEE Â EFFECTIVELY TIES THEÂ HANDS OF YOUR SENATORS AND REP (unless they happen to beÂ one of the “Chosen 12”) AND REMOVES THEM FROM THE REAL WORKÂ OF CUTTING WASTE OUT OF OUR GOVERNMENT!
