You can also present this clear choice to voters by hammering Democrats on their decision to adjourn Congress without fixing the tax code. In January 2011, taxes are scheduled to rise on virtually every American. Considering the perilous state of the U.S. economy, this decision by the Democrats to raise taxes is the very definition of irresponsibility.
This tax increase can be specified for every income group with vivid personal impact on most families. As the Republicans on the Ways and Means Committee have documented:
- A family of four earning $50,000 per year could pay more than $2,100 in higher taxes.
- A single mom earning $36,000 per year could pay over $1,100 more in taxes.
- Married senior citizens earning $40,000 per year could pay more than $1,400 in higher taxes.
For families struggling to pay their bills and put food on the table, the idea of having to pay even more in taxes will be devastating.
