Donald Trump once proposed the largest tax hike in American history

In his FY 2016 budget, President Barack Obama proposed $1.44 trillion in new taxes over the next ten years. Though his tax proposal is not likely to be passed by Congress, it comes on top of hikes he already managed to enact, such as the fiscal cliff deal that increased taxes by $620 billion and the $1 trillion of taxes in ObamaCare. Conservative activists, rightly, slammed the tax hikes, which have contributed to a slow economic recovery in the aftermath of the Great Recession.

Obama's Latest Budget Proposal Shows a Weak Grasp on Reality

With another year comes another federal budget season, kicked off by President Obama’s budget proposal. Although his plan was shockingly delivered by the date required by law (for only the second time under Obama), perhaps the president and his team should have taken a few extra days to think it through. The proposal they released today is so shockingly tone-deaf and immune to fiscal realities that it would be comic if we weren’t talking about the actual future solvency of the United States government.

Key Vote NO on Senator Warren's Tax-and-Spend Student Loans Bill

As one of our over 6 million FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your senators and ask that they vote NO on the Bank on Students Emergency Loan Refinancing Act, S. 2432. This bill would continue the total federal takeover of student loans, funded on the back of further tax increases.

Help Stop Tax Hikes in New Mexico

Last week state legislators in New Mexico failed to pass an operating budget for fiscal year 2011 so they are now in a special session to get one passed. Thankfully, limited government advocates have been able to hold the line on higher taxes and are refusing to burden the working families of New Mexico further. Unfortunately, those calling for higher taxes haven’t backed down either. Your representatives and senators need to hear from you today.

No New Taxes for Louisiana

During a recession, the last thing government should do is raise taxes on the middle class and poor. But that is exactly what some Louisiana legislators are trying to do. They have crafted a 50 cent per pack tax hike on smokers that they say will raise more money for the state. But instead of raising taxes, legislators in Baton Rouge should find ways to cut wasteful government spending.Regardless of whether you smoke or not, all of us can agree that increasing taxes on the middle class and making it tougher for small businesses during a recession is bad public policy. Plus, the revenue that the government wants to collect won’t be there anyway, as recent studies have shown.Take a minute and SEND A MESSAGE to the legislature, telling them to stand on the principles of lower taxes, less government and more freedom by opposing the tobacco tax.

Companies Sign Letter Against Higher Taxes in Budget

On March 24, 200 American companies sent a letter to Congressional leadership about the proposal in the Obama-Reid-Pelosi budget to repeal tax "deferral".  Deferral allows companies to defer income into the future to avoid high marginal tax rates on income.  The letter claims that the repeal would unilaterally increase taxes on large American companies that deal internationally.

Key Vote No: Obama-Pelosi-Reid Budget

Click here to download the PDFOn behalf of hundreds of thousands of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to vote “No” on the Obama-Pelosi-Reid budget being considered this week.  Their budget taxes too much, spends too much, and borrows too much.  And, potentially worst of all, it would open the door for socialized medicine and a massive energy tax to be enacted later this year without substantial debate through the reconciliation process.

Help Stop Tax Hike in Nassau County

County Executive Thomas Suozzi is planning to impose a new tax on cigarettes and a surcharge on traffic tickets in an effort to get some quick cash to fill Nassau County’s gaping budget deficit.  Like many other counties and municipalities across the country, Nassau is facing some tough times.  But you aren’t alone and raising taxes isn’t the answer.  Whether you smoke or not, you should be concerned about Mr. Suozzi’s tax and spend plan.Please call Mr. Suozzi at 516-571-3131 and tell him you oppose this regressive tax. It might be easy for politicians to think they can go after an unpopular minority of taxpayers to bring in more tax funds – but at the end of the day, those funds simply won’t be there.  Smokers will go across county lines to make their purchase, which hurt small businesses.  And statistically speaking, smokers tend to be amongst the poorest in a community.  Nassau County can’t ask this small group to shell out more and bear the financial burdens for everyone else.  Instead of pursuing plans that take more money out of Nassau residents’ pockets and burden businesses, Mr. Suozzi should cut waste and roll back regulations making Nassau a great place to do business and live.At the end of the day, when the money Mr. Suozzi was counting on isn’t there, he’s going to try to raise other taxes.  These nanny-state ideas always lead to bigger, badder taxes that will hurt Nassua County.  We need to nip this one in the bud and hold the line now.  Please call Mr. Suozzi at 516-571-3131 and tell him Nassau doesn’t need this new tax.If families and businesses have to stick to a budget and make tough decisions, Nassau County should do the same.  Join the Taxpayer Tea Party Movement: If you haven’t signed up yet – please go to IamWithRick.com and sign up for a tea party near you.
