(CNSNews.com) – Conservative leaders challenged congressional Republicans to continue to hold the line against tax increases and urged them to further cut federal spending. They also congratulated the GOP for opposing Democratic proposals to raise taxes in the failed congressional supercommittee.
“Today we applaud the Republicans on the supercommittee for not caving in to any disastrous taxes,” said ForAmerica Chairman L. Brent Bozell III at a Washington, D.C. news conference on Tuesday. “We applaud grassroots conservatives and the Tea Party members who made it clear to Republicans in Congress that raising taxes is absolutely unacceptable.”
Congressional liberals killed any meaningful debt reduction because they were unwilling to admit that spending is the problem. “Only in Washington do we think it’s appropriate to solve a spending problem by raising taxes, which does nothing but increase the spending problem,” he said.
