Anti-Taxers Write Letters To Republicans, For Some Reason

Infrastructure Week

Guys, you’ll never believe it! Some major anti-tax groups are opposed to funding IRS enforcement, which in turn would bring in tax revenue to pay for the bipartisan package. Whoddathunk it?

Anyway, those anti-tax groups sent a letter to warn the Trickle-Downers to NOT negotiate with the White House unless they agree to no additional funding for the Internal Revenue Service:

Dear Conservative Member of Congress:

As conservative leaders, we are troubled that Republicans fell into the Democratic trap on an infrastructure spending bill. The $1.2 Trillion “bipartisan” package that was announced last week was a betrayal of basic conservative values of fiscal responsibility. The bill mostly funds the Green New Deal and expensive and underused mass transit systems, not roads, bridges, and airports.

With the Covid crisis over, the economy recovering, and the national debt crashing toward $30 trillion, Congress should be aggressively CUTTING spending right now – not adding to the record size and scope of government.

The good news is that Biden announced his “double cross” of Republicans only hours after the handshake deal was done. The true intentions of this White House and the progressives who are running Congress are now transparent to everyone. This budget-busting bill is only the gateway to another $2 trillion spending bill and a $3 trillion tax hike.

It is our hope that this classic bait and switch will allow Republicans to push the reset button.

Any infrastructure deal with the Democrats must contain four preconditions for any Republican agreement:

Republicans should not return to the negotiating table unless and until these conditions are met.

Sincerely,

Stephen Moore, Committee to Unleash Prosperity

Bill Walton, Conservative Action Project

Morton Blackwell, Leadership Institute

Grover Norquist, Americans for Tax Reform

Adam Brandon, Freedomworks

Oddly,  the P.S., “We the undersigned pinky-swear that we totally pay our fair share in taxes. Pinky-swear! Really, no need for anyone to look into this further…,” was missing from the letter. Probably cut for space. Editors, amiright?

Anyway, if the Sincerely Signed get their way, and the infrastructure bill collapses, will this give the Democrats more leverage to go it alone and cram a bigger bill down Republicans throats, like a common Trump-Virus ventilator in Possum Hollar? You know, an infrastructure bill that will really stick-it to Corporate America, which is super-popular with voters according to all polls?

    Is there a time limit for President Biden to have to appease the Rethugs? I mean after let’s say 8 months, he no longer has to play bipartisanship anymore and can then get stuff done?
    It’s not like the Rethugs have any interest in governing all they want is to stop progress. And so far they are doing that well even though we have a majority in 2 branches.
    I want to see some Democrat successes and that’s only going to happen if we muzzle the minority, or as some call them, the South.

    The part of this that I really loved: ” The true intentions of this White House and the progressives who are running Congress are now transparent to everyone.”

    Democrats have no right to try to enact the legislation they want.

    Let’s talk about this betrayal of basic conservative values of fiscal responsibility, shall we?
    Comparisons of Dem admins vs. GOP admins for the last century or so show that Dems trend toward balancing the budget and GOP trends toward spending like the proverbial drunken sailors.
    But no need to raise taxes, or even to collect the taxes due according to current tax rules laws, right, Skippy? No need to raise the funds needed to pay the bills you left unpaid, isn’t that the idea, cowboys?
    In further news, GOP celebrates the lower classes returning to work as pandemic restrictions and assistance (feeble though some of that assistance was) in order to gain the funds to pay their bills. Which ones are the fiscal conservatives again?

    Here’s an example of a liberal who knows more about the Bible than your average White evangelical Protestant:

    Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.

    Pay your taxes bitches.
