President, Americans for Tax Reform
April 15, 2010
Over the next several hours, millions of Americans will pack into the local post office or flood the IRS website to file last minute tax returns. Perhaps you are one of them.
No other day throughout the year is a starker reminder of the financial abuses you and I suffer everyday at the hands of a bloated federal government …
…And it’s about to get a whole lot worse!
From business-crippling “cap-and-trade” to the recent government health care takeover –President Obama and his liberal friends in Congress are always working overtime to discover new ways to tax us.
Despite his campaign promise to not raise taxes on families making less than $250,000, the Obama Administration’s newest scheme is a national “value-added tax” (VAT).
A “popular” method of tax collection in Europe, the VAT tax is a national sales tax imposed on goods ranging from food to medicine.
Certainly families making less than $250,000 use these goods!
My friend, I have a plan to stop President Obama’s tax-and-spend schemes. But I need your help.
First, we must do what Americans for Tax Reform has always done: identify and publicize common-sense citizen legislators on the federal and state level that will stand up for taxpayers, small government and the Constitution.
The way we do that is through our much-vaunted Taxpayer Protection Pledge.
Candidates who sign the Pledge promise not to raise our taxes by even a single dime.
And we hold those who break the Pledge accountable.
The second plank of ATR’s efforts is the “Flat Tax.” Unlike the current “progressive” system that punishes success and rewards failure, the Flat Tax is a low rate consumption tax…
…That means that after a large personal exemption a dollar earned by a businessman in New York or a janitor in California is taxed at the same low rate!
Economists across the political spectrum agree this system greatly decreases the complexity of the current tax-code, reduces the individual tax burden (especially on savings), and gives every American the same simple tax rules with one low tax rate.
Ending the “progressive” tax and replacing liberal Washington with fiscally responsible citizen-legislators won’t be easy or done overnight.
That’s why I need to ask a very important favor of you today.
My friend, won’t you aid our efforts with your immediate, generous gift of $500, $250, $100, $50, $35 or whatever amount you can sendto Americans for Tax Reform today?
Together, we can succeed.
P.S. In the age of Obama, Americans for Tax Reform’s efforts to change the tax code and support taxpayer-friendly citizen legislators couldn’t be more vital. Please follow this link to give the most generous gift you can to ATR right away. Thanks in advance
