Will you sign this petition?

Hi all! My personal opinion about the IRS and income tax is that they are both completely unconstitutional. They're wrong, wrong, wrong and they should be abolished! Until that time, I'll fight for tax cuts so that folks can keep more of their own money from a greedy congress.

Below is a letter that was forwarded to me from a friend. She received it from the Family Research Council. It's about the child tax credits that will be ending next year, resulting in pretty big tax hikes. Plus, Obama's budget plan includes tax cuts only for those who use child care, effectively taxing families where one spouse stays home to care for children. That is ridiculous!!! If you would, please take a minute to read the below letter, click on the link, and sign the petition. I did it, and it takes all of a minute. We have to fight any way we can! Thanks!

Please sign the petition to President Obama and the Congressional Leadership to make permanent and increase the child tax credit - and let parents decide how to spend the money they earn!
When It Comes to Child Care, Why Won't the President Let Parents Decide?February 04, 2010 Share with Friends
When Congress passed tax relief for families in 2001 and 2003, some Members of Congress insisted the tax cuts be staggered and temporary, resulting in a large scheduled tax hike in 2011.
If these cuts are not made permanent,next year American families will face one of the largest tax increases in history. On average, taxes would increase $1,800 per taxpayer, and 48 million married couples will face an average hike of $3,007, with many paying more than if they merely cohabited. A family of four earning $40,000 would see a tax increase of over $2,300. If the President's tax relief is allowed to expire at the end of 2010, Americans will pay about $280 billion more in taxes each year.
Instead of addressing this problem, President Obama's recently submitted budget includes a proposal that seeks to increase the Child and Dependent Care Tax Credit. The proposal is limited only to families making less than $115,000 a year. To be clear, this is not an expansion of the Child Tax Credit, but an attempt to use the tax code for social engineering.
The Child and Dependent Care Tax Credit is for families where (a.) both parents work, (b.) there is only one parent and that parent is working, or (c.) one parent is working and the other is in school. Households where a parent stays at home to care for children get no break. This not only steers funds to government-approved daycare facilities, but also discriminates against families that have two working parents who might otherwise choose to have one parent stay home with the children.
In fairness to all, the President should first make permanent the Child Tax Credit, and then go further by increasing the credit to $5,000 for all households. This would let families decide how to spend the money they earn -- money that might even convince a parent to stay at home to care for their kids, which is the optimal environment for any child.
Please sign the petition asking Congress to empower parents to make the decisions that are best for their child. Increase the Child Tax Credit and make it permanent for all families!
Thank you for taking action today and God bless you.

Thanks Aloha! Aren't they just horrible! In this economic time (and even in good times) people don't need to be giving more of their money to the government!

Aloha2U said...

It's not right, our government are crooks and justice needs to prevail. All that money belongs to the people and should rightfully go back to the people.

Every single politician deserves to have an annual salary of 20-25 thousand dollars and that's it no less or more, I might be too generous here but they should also be in office for at the most 2-3 years then out! They need to be knocked off their high chairs and become humbled as we the people cut their lines.

With policies and rules and regulations provided by the people for the people and of the people. We need to put back the power in the peoples hands once and for all the way that it was intended to be.
