FRC Urges Congress to Cut Spending, Reject Tax Increases
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Family Research Council today urged opposition to the "Plan B" proposal which would significantly increase taxes on America's job creators.
Family Research Council President Tony Perkins made the following comments:
"Congress should know better. Tax increases on those who provide jobs does not grow the economy. Yet this is exactly what House leadership is permitting under the 'Plan B' proposal. If Congress is going to fix the debt crisis it needs to cut government spending -- not raise taxes.
"They need to focus on a real solution to the problem: the substantial reduction of federal spending. 'Plan B' raises taxes and surrenders the debt ceiling issue before a single dollar of promised cuts is made. This is dangerous territory that puts taxpayers on the hook for untold future spending," concluded Perkins.
