Devastating Tax Hikes Loom But Arizona Democrat Ron Barber Continues Playing Politics
WASHINGTON --- The White House made a serious blunder recently when they admitted that 114 million middle-class families will be burdened in 2013 with tax hikes that congressional Democrats are pushing. Will this finally convince Ron Barber that threatening tax hikes on small businesses and families may spark another recession, making a bad economy worse?
"Instead of protecting Americans from job-destroying tax hikes, Democrats are ready to throw the economy off a cliff,” said NRCC Communications Director Paul Lindsay."Is playing politics with America’s economic future more important to Ron Barber than sacrificing his anti-business and anti-growth priorities?”
The White House confessed that the potential upcoming tax hikes being pushed by congressional Democrats will strap 114 million middle-class families with new taxes in 2013:
"The White House has launched a new offensive in its fight with congressional Republicans over taxes, arguing 114 million middle-class families will see their taxes rise without action by Congress.” (Jonathan Easley,"White House warns of $1,600 tax hike on 114M middle-class families,” The Hill, 7/24/2012)
But Democrat leaders like Senator Patty Murray refuse to give up their party’s addiction to limitless spending sprees and tax increases in favor of economic stability:
"Sen. Patty Murray (Wash.), the Democratic co-chairwoman of the 2011 deficit-reduction supercommittee, said last week that Democrats would let income tax rates rise across the board if Republicans refuse to drop their opposition to raising new taxes. Senate Democratic leaders have endorsed her declaration.” (Jonathan Easley,"White House warns of $1,600 tax hike on 114M middle-class families,” The Hill, 7/24/2012)
