On December 31st 2010 the Bush tax cuts will fully and completely expire — automatically giving Americans a massive tax increase. Please join former Sen. Fred Thompson and the League of American Voters in demanding that Congress renew these tax cuts and keep our economy sound.

Urgent Message From Former Sen. Fred Thompson

Dear Fellow American:

On Dec. 31, 2010, almost every working American will be hit with a massive, across-the-board tax increase on their income and investments.

On this date, the Bush tax cuts, enacted in 2001 and 2003, completely expire.

We must urge Congress and the president to renew the Bush tax cuts early, before they expire and before investors lose confidence in the U.S. economy.

Sen. Fred Thompson

The automatic tax increase that will begin on Jan. 1, 2011, and could have catastrophic consequences for the economy.

As the nation faces a terrible recession — now is not the time to raise taxes!

Help me and the League of American Voters get Congress and the president to renew the Bush tax cuts.

You can do so by taking three simple steps:

  • First, please digitally sign and submit the Petition to Renew the Bush Tax Cuts below.
  • Second, share this petition via e-mails, Twitter, Facebook, and anyway else you can

Lastly — help support the League financially so that it can share this important message with America via TV commercials.

The petition below will take just a few moments. It could help our country.

Yours for America,

 

U.S. Senator 1994 - 2003

Oh ........ puhleeeeese!!! 
 
 
Almost EVERY working American???  How many working Americans earn OVER $250,000 annually?  How many Americans are begging for jobs that will earn them less than $50,000 annually?     
 

"Not all budgetary dollars are created equal," said Alan Blinder, professor and co-director of Princeton University's Center for Economic Policy Studies, in a conference Wednesday morning. "Some have a lot of bang for the buck, and some have very little. The GDP increase per dollar of budgetary cost is in the range of 1.6, 1.7 for things like food stamps and unemployment benefits, and in the range of .35 for extending the Bush tax cuts. We could get some substantial job creation by simply reprogramming the $75 billion that would be saved over the next two years by not extending the upper-bracket Bush tax cuts and spending it instead on unemployment benefits, food stamps, and the like."

Blinder's economic advice supports the tax policy of President Obama and the Democrats, who would like to maintain tax cuts for 95 percent of Americans, while letting the cuts for those with incomes above $250,000 expire. Letting the tax cuts lapse is projected to trim approximately $675 billion from the deficit over 10 years, according to the Center for Budget and Policy Priorities.

The GOP, by contrast, is aiming to extend the Bush tax cuts across the board, and has tried to block the billions in deficit spending to extend benefits to the long-term unemployed.

It does seem - to me - that the Republicans spouting the 'party line' on the expiring tax cuts want to make sure that the rich get to stay richer, and that the poor, the working poor and the disappearing middle class get screwed, yet again. 
 
 
Somebody please tell Fred that my "investments" are in bread and milk and lights and heat.  My income is a Social Security/Disability check ..... and I didn't even get a raise this year, although the Medicare take-back was increased. 
 
 
I'm very good at being disabled, and damnit, I deserved a raise this year!!
