Expect Devastating Economic Conditions if Barber is Able to Push America Off Cliff.
WASHINGTON --- Today, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) confirmed small business owners and workers’ worst fears – that the fragile economy would plummet into a recession and unemployment would skyrocket even more if Ron Barber has his way. Barber has already voted to push the economy off a cliff, but is this new report enough to convince him to stop his party’s job-crushing tax hikes on job creators and families?
"This report proves that Ron Barber's job-destroying tax hike plan is an economic disaster for Arizona small business owners and hardworking families,” said NRCC Communications Director Paul Lindsay."Is Barber going to finally listen and stop the tax hike before his irresponsible agenda drives our economy into another recession with national unemployment above nine percent?”

A new report by the CBO said that Washington Democrats’ plan to impose tax hikes on job creators and businesses will force the economy to tank and the unemployment rate to spike:
"Tax increases and spending cuts from the ‘fiscal cliff’ would send the U.S. economy into a recession and drive the unemployment rate up to 9 percent by the end of 2013, according to fresh forecasts from the Congressional Budget Office.” (“CBO: Cliff Would Cause Recession, National Journal, 8/22/2012)
However, Democrats may not be listening because they already think their failed, reckless agenda has ‘worked:’
"Just like we’ve tried their plan, we tried our plan -- and it worked. That’s the difference,’ [said Obama].” (“Remarks by the President at a Campaign Event,” The White House, 7/24/2012)
