Tell Congress Enough is Enough! NO NEW TAXES!

Dear Patriots,

Less than a week ago, in a deal to avert the so-called "fiscal cliff," President Obama and Congress voted to raise taxes on 77% of Americans. But a $620-billion tax hike isn't enough for Democrats in Congress.


They want more of your money to finance their ridiculous efforts to tax and spend America to prosperity. On CBS' "Face the Nation" yesterday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told host Bob Schieffer that Democrats weren't done raising taxes in the wake of the "fiscal cliff" deal:
"The president had said originally he wanted $1.6 trillion in revenue," Pelosi explained. "He took it down to $1.2 as a compromise. In this legislation, we had $620 billion, very significant, high-end tax -- changing the high-end tax rate to 39.6 percent. But that is not enough on the revenue side."
Pelosi also said that, if she were president, she would go around Congress and invoke the 14th Amendment to unilaterally raise the debt ceiling. Click on the image below to watch a portion of her CBS interview:

The former House Speaker's comments raise huge red flags for conservatives:
"This is scary, folks," says Eric Odom, managing director of LibertyNEWS, the official news division of Grassfire Nation. "Pelosi makes it clear that she believes Congress should have no authority to stop President Obama from spending. In typical Leftist fashion, Pelosi ignores the fact that cuts to government can have the same outcome as tax increases. Apparently, scaling back a bloated and unnecessary government is not on her agenda. Blank checks are the name of the Democrat game."
A "fiscal cliff" plan that includes $41 in tax hikes for every $1 in spending cuts -- one that, according to the Congressional Budget Office, raises the deficit by $4 trillion over the next ten years -- still doesn't satisfy President Obama and the Spend-ocrats.

Pelosi and her fellow Democrats want you, the American taxpayer, to finance their spending binges by skirting the U.S. Constitution and forcing you to write them one blank check after another -- for whatever they deem essential to enacting their far-Left agenda.
