Say no to any tax increase in tax cut bill

Dec. 1, 2017, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging the Senate to reject any attempts to add any tax increases to the Senate tax cut bill:

“Americans for Limited Government supports a tax cut bill, as reflected in our endorsement of the Senate bill yesterday. Should the latest iteration of the Senate bill wind up having anything resembling an automatic tax increase or sunset of tax cuts, we urge the Senate to vote no. If faux deficit hawks seek automatic tax increases on the American people rather than real spending cuts to lower the deficit, they completely miss the mark with their objections.

“A government spending bill will be considered between now and Christmas, and that is another opportunity to visit cutting spending in a meaningful way. I will be intrigued to see if Sens. Corker and Flake are as concerned about the deficit when it comes to cutting bloated government as opposed to using the deficit issue to sabotage the tax cut bill.”
