Tax Day Is Time to Focus on Obama’s Commitment to High Taxes:

President Obama’s Destructive Tax Policies Continue to Erode Economic Growth

Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest Tea Party political action committee, remains determined to stop President Obama’s destructive Tax-and-Spend policies.

Tea Party Express Chief Strategist Sal Russo said, “America continues to suffer through the slowest recovery after a recession in modern history. Our goal should be to create a dynamic, growing economy that provides jobs and opportunity for our citizens. That happens in a low tax environment, not with Obama’s policies of making the U.S. have the highest corporate tax rate in the world and increasing marginal tax rates.

“The Obama policies are the destruction derby of economic growth and a better life for American citizens.

“Instead of offering relief by encouraging private sector growth, President Obama continues taxing wherever he can and spending money we don’t have. Under his leadership, taxes have been increased by over $1.6 trillion, and debt has increased by over $6 trillion. His latest budget proposal is full of more taxes, increased spending, and adding to our already unsustainable debt.

“Obama’s policies are destroying hope and opportunity in America. According to the Census Bureau statistics, more the 46 million Americans, or 15% of the population, are living below the poverty line. Six million people have given up on Obama’s recovery and are no longer looking for work. A record 47 million Americans are enrolled in food stamps. The failures of this Administration are indisputable.

“Four years ago today, Americans across the country shook up the establishment by taking to the streets in protest of the out-of-control spending, crippling debt, and threats of new taxes promised by President Obama. Now we are faced with the repercussions of these disastrous policies. However, if you were hoping for a new direction that would make America’s economy grow, President Obama has something different in mind. His new budget asks for over a trillion dollars in new taxes, $8.2 trillion in new debt, and the continuous growth of the federal government.

“The bad policies being promoted by President Obama will keep the Tea Party Express committed to fiscal conservatives taking control of the Senate and retaining the House in 2014. Until we elect a pro-growth fiscal conservative to the White House in 2016, we are destined for insufficient economic growth and more hardships for the American people,” Russo concluded.
