Help Us Fight Taxes and Spending in Florida

I just wanted to take a minute and update you on our efforts to fight taxes and spending in Florida. Many of you will be excited to learn that we are planning Taxpayer Tea Parties in multiple cities across Florida! This is because of the overwhelming interest in joining our effort to fight wasteful government spending and the massive bailouts. You can rsvp for these events by visiting IamWithRick.com and signing up to attend the tea party closest to you. As CNBC's Rick Santelli pointed out, it's time for the American people to defend free markets and take to the streets in protest!SIGN UP NOW for the protest closest to you! We will send you updates on the events as we get them.Also, if you care about wasteful spending and higher taxes, you might want to take a minute to send the politicians in Tallahassee a message. Some legislators are proposing an increase in the cigarette tax, saying that they need more money to spend. This is ridiculous! The state government should not be spending more, but less.And it certainly should not be raising taxes on anyone during a recession. Sure, the nanny-staters want to control people's lives and punish smokers, but do they know that smokers tend to be poorer than non-smokers? Plus, increasing taxes on cigarettes will harm small businessses that sell them, which will only lead to more economic suffering.Please TAKE ACTION and tell the politicians in Tallahassee that enough is enough! It's time that they make real spending cuts and reduce the size of the state government.Thank you for your dedication to lower taxes, less government and more freedom. We will be sure to keep you updated on ways to help us defend liberty in Florida.

FreedomWorks Activist Addresses House Financial Services Committee

Last Tuesday, Robin Staudt, a FreedomWorks activist from Orange County, NC, appeared before the House Financial Services Committee to speak as a taxpayer who was paying their mortgage on time, despite the current economic downturn, and who opposed further bailouts or government meddling in the housing industry.  Robin’s story was a compelling first hand account of someone doing the right thing and not asking for a handout.

Spreading the Wealth

Or rather, spreading the pain and the blame.

As Brendan noted a post or two ago, more and more states are looking to nanny-state style "sin-taxes" to fill budget holes.  I want to point readers to an excellent WSJ article from the wayback machine in August.  The article takes a quick look at the repercussions of cigarette taxes in states like Maryland and New Jersey - rampant black markets, hurt businesses, and none of the promised revenue:

Higher and Higher

Shorter Ruth Marcus: What America really needs is higher taxes. In fact, it would be totally awesome campaign strategy for a Republican to just say, "Yeah, higher taxes! We need 'em!" Because clearly, GOP voters eat that sort of thing up.
