      It seems too important for Congress to cover their butt! How un-American and totally against the People for Patty Murray to play chicken with our taxes and all the rest of congress that goes along with her kind of thinking.
      STOP playing chicken!!!
      We the People could get smart and VOTE them OUT!

      What, none of the Hollywood set is calling for the enactment to be stopped? Will wonders never cease.

      Who wants Washington to prevent taxmageddon? Every person at every level of income with the dignity to live independently from the controls of "government people" and their unconstitutional authority!!

      Increasing taxes kills job creation. As a Psychiatrist one of the greatest stressors facing the patients I treat is the pervasive sense of hopelessness regarding finding work and for those employed , anxiety about keeping their jobs. Unleash the productivity engine in this country by lowering taxes and jobs will come back as we saw under President Ronald Reagan. Obama's vision for this country is not working!!!!

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
