Congress must hold fast against Obama tax hikes

President Barack Obama's fiscal cliff failure and his mismanagement of the budget plus his total failure to show any kind of leadership will cost the average American family over $2,200 more in taxes in 2013. This Obama plan must be stopped now at all costs

You must remember that President Obama ran his campaign on the lies that Republicans are captive to the rich and are out of touch with the middle class. He was elected through his lies, and now we are supposed to pay to support his redistribution of wealth and his socialistic policies and failure to manage the economy and out-of-control government spending?

Congress, including conservatives in the House, need to stand up against Mr. Obama now and vote against proposed tax increases before it is there late. The Bush tax cuts set to expire at the end of the year need to be extended.

Redistribution of wealth as proposed by Mr. Obama needs to be stopped. It is not what this country wants and needs.
