The talk of Washington this week is the $850 billion Democrat stimulus bill – with massive federal spending as our country’s debt tops $10 trillion.

The big-government approach is supported by President-Elect Obama, who recently said that “government” is the only one that can fix this economy.

We in the Republican Study Committee strongly disagree.

We don’t believe in tax-and-stimulate. We believe in cutting taxes to put more money back in the hands of the families and job creators that make our economy work.

We have an alternative stimulus plan that is more fiscally responsible, with tax cuts and spending cuts to promote real economic growth.

  • We’re proposing a permanent 5% cut in personal income tax rates.
  • We’re cutting taxes on businesses from 35% to 25% so they are better seated to invest and create jobs.
  • We want to alleviate debt for future generations – by avoiding a trillion dollar spending spree
  • Our bill will contain NO pork and NO earmarks

I encourage you to look at the Economic Recovery and Middle-Class Tax Relief Act here. Let us know how we can better serve you and your family.
