It’s shocking. It seems like leaders in Congress want your taxes to go up this holiday season.
And no, I’m not kidding. Unless Congress acts now, taxes for the average American family will increase by $1,000 at the end of the year.
Talk about a lump of coal in your stocking. That’s $1,000 you won’t have to pay your bills, heat your home, or feed your family.
If Congress doesn’t act before the end of the year, the payroll tax cut enacted last year will expire. Millions of middle class families across the country depend on this extra money in their paychecks, and taking that away right now when America’s middle class is still struggling to make ends meet is the wrong move.
More money in the paychecks of middle class Americans is one of the best ways to strengthen our sluggish economy.
But Republican leaders in Congress seem to be more interested in tax cuts for the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans than they are in cutting taxes for the rest of us. If we don’t demand it, then Congress will let these tax cuts for middle class Americans expire.
Send a message to Speaker Boehner right now by signing our petition that demands action from Congress on the middle class tax cuts:
And after you sign this petition – spread the word and ask everyone you know to sign it too. This is a tax cut that affects all of us and the only thing that will make a difference is the combined voice of thousands of Americans.
It’s time to put a tax cut for millions of middle class Americans ahead of partisan politics.
Thanks for everything you do.
P.S. I know it’s almost the end of the year, and the holidays are fast approaching – but that’s why this deadline makes all the difference. Please sign the petition and spread the word today: http://MiddleClassTaxCutsNow.com
