WASHINGTON, November 28 -

Mr. Speaker,

William from Humble, Texas wrote me this about how tax increases will affect him and his family:

ìIt seems too many of us are going to be hit with big tax increases next year. I cannot afford to pay anymore taxes. My family lives paycheck to paycheck. We stand to lose everything we work for. Stop the taxes from going up. With Obamacare and tax increases, I feel my family stands no chance to get ahead.

Tell me, is there any chance my grandchildren will have a good life? I cannot see it. I cannot sleep at nights worrying about the condition this country is in and there is no end in sight. Please help us hard working people.î

Mr. Speaker, Washington has a spending problem. More taxes is not the solution. Because the power to tax is the power to destroy.

And thatís just the way it is.
