Lame Duck Agenda
11/3/2010 12:09:06 PM - Michele Bachmann
Finally the Democrat’s train of big spending and big government has been stopped in its tracks. Starting in January the majority can focus on reducing the debt, repealing Obamacare, and restoring limited government. But in the meantime, a dangerous agenda could be presented by the Democrats in the lame duck session of Congress and Americans must keep a vigilant eye.
Democrats scurried out of Washington in September before addressing the tax cuts scheduled to expire at the end of the year. This has put businesses and families in a difficult position. They don’t know what the financial playing field will look like in 2011 and how much will be owed to Uncle Sam. During the lame duck session the issue will be brought to the House floor. When it is, the existing Republicans must do everything within our power to extend the current tax rates for all Americans.
The Tea Party played an influential role in yesterday’s results but now they must stay visible. Please continue to put the pressure on your representative during the lame duck. Then, at the start of the new Congress in January, remember to hold us accountable to the limited government designed for our great nation by the founding fathers.
