We can do better!

It is time we once again take a stand for our values and principles by opposing the Obama tax deal and demand that Republicans stand firm for a better deal. With each passing moment, the current tax proposal gets worse and worse for the taxpayers as more debt, overspending, pork and immoral tax increases are loaded into it by an out-of-touch Congress. The Democrats are tearing themselves apart over this issue and if Republicans don’t cave and save the Democrats from themselves, this deal will die – as it should.

If it does die, then Republicans who take over effective control of Congress in January can drive a much harder bargain and stand up for the principles that our movement is all about. If there is one lesson that the DC political class should have learned on November 2 is that ” We the People” are sick and tired of compromising our principles to get a deal! This madness must stop and the only way that is going to happen is for AFP members to demand Republicans step away from this pork laden and immoral tax increase bill, let it die and come back after January to do it right.

Syndicated Columnist Charles Krauthammer has a great column that puts this in the proper perspective and I urge you to read it. Click on this link to read it.

So, I ask each of you to simply and easily make contact with your US Senators and your Congressman and asking that they vote “NO.”
