      ActToday to Tell the Super Committee to Cut Spending

      andNot Raise Our Taxes - Midnight is the Deadline 

      The unconstitutional Super Committee has until midnight tonight to decide how to resolve our debt crisis. President Obama, Congressional Democrats and socialist organizations like MoveOn.org are pushing for tax increases instead of spending cuts. They are demanding as much as a $1.6 trillion increase in taxes, targeting the most productive Americans, hitting entrepreneurs and small businesses particularly hard.

      Ron Paul said of the Super Committee "You don’t get out of the problem of having too much debt by allowing Congress to spend a lot more. It never made any sense to me; it just digs the hole much deeper and then it gets harder for us to get out."

      Although there are two strong RLC-endorsees on the committee, Co-Chairman Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-TX) and Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA), they are under enormous pressure to cave in and authorize tax increases. Toomey has even put forward a plan which trades larger cuts than those previously proposed for some tax increases. But the real problem is that it takes only a majority vote to pass a plan out of the Super Committee, which means that only one Republican has to vote with Democrats to raise taxes.

      What's more, in addition to raising taxes, Democrats on the committee want to give more money to Obama to launch even more phony stimulus and prop up companies which ought to take responsibility for their own mistakes and not lay their risk off on the taxpayers.

      This makes it vitally important for us to remind every member of the committee, especially the Republicans that taxpayers have had enough. We don't want more debt and we don't want more taxes. We want bigger tax cuts and we want them now, not spread out over a decade where their impact is offset by ongoing interest.

      The Super Committee will be voting on Monday and sending their report to Congress on Wednesday. If they cannot come up with a plan which is acceptable to Congress then automatic cuts of $1.2 trillion will be implemented. It would be better for them to come to no agreement at all and submit no plan than to offer one which doesn't have at least $1.2 trillion in cuts and no increase in taxes.

      We need you to write the members of the SuperCommittee today so that when they call their offices on Monday before they vote their staff will tell them that the people want them to hold the line and make big cuts and not give in to demands for tax increases.

      Write them and make sure your email insists on a minimum of $1.2 trillion in spending cuts and no increase in taxes.

      Please go to the RLCwebsite and use our form to email your Senators and Representatives and tell them to demand that  the Super Committee not raise taxes.  It would also help to take a few minutes to call to each member of the Super Committee and leave a message reminding them that we can't afford to pay more for bailouts and failed stimulus programs.

      Sen. Patty Murray, (D-WA) Co-chair - Call 202-224-0238

        ... Well, the Super Committee did fail. Now we just need to make sure that the Congress follows through on the promised mandatory cuts. Dave

          You know in your heart that Obama will sign any cuts for the DoD, but will veto any for liberal sacred-cow programs. Unless the Republicans put that bill

            You know in your heart that Obama will sign any cuts for the DoD, but will veto any for liberal sacred-cow programs. Unless the Republicans put that bill forward without a severability clause, Obama will just be getting everything he wants. Come to think of it, the man has already demonstrated that he fears no court findings against him. He'll do something extralegal, if not totally illegal, to get his way. We all knew the Super Committee was designed to fail, but that even in a fail, the Democrats get more of what they want than Republicans can get. You know that Republicans would have fought tooth and nail to guard the DoD, while the Democrats will offer up only token programs that are not actually benefitting any unionistas or liberals. Gone will be anything that benefits conservatives; protected will be anything that benefits the Left. It was all a set up, and I called it that back when the news of the Super Committee was first aired this past summer. I have absolutely no faith in this government whatsoever, not after it came to light that Congress can do insider trading with impunity. No faith, man. No faith. Rule of law? Shot to hell and not coming back.
