NEBRASKA TAXPAYERS FOR
P.O. Box 6452 Omaha, NE.
A Project of Nebraska Taxpayers for
EXPLANATION & OBJECTIVES:
This project commits to fighting the unwarranted
regulation, spending, and tax hike
plans of President Barack Obama, which will hurt our economy, taxpayers, and
families. President Obama maintains that he will use his office to restore
fiscal responsibility to the federal government. However, his record as
senator and candidate vividly illustrates that he intends to follow the
socialist New Deal model that only led us into a deeper and more
prolonged Depression. His administration appointees mostly
are fiscal and social leftists. History demonstrates that tax
increases on the wealthy and tax relief rollbacks only hurt an economy.
Higher taxes cripple economic incentives and stifle job creation.
Overspending similarly dries up productive private capital venture.
Overregulation hinders economic expansion. President Watch offers an
8-point plan for President Obama to follow: 1) reform our tax code to
reward people who create jobs and opportunities. Fully index all taxes on
savings and investment to stop taxing inflation and reduce the capital gains
tax; 2) reduce the payroll tax rate, the heaviest burden on middle-class
America, to return more money to our pockets; 3) increase the personal exemption
for families and children to relieve the tax burden on overtaxed families; 4)
establish enterprise zones in depressed urban and rural communities to spur
investment, job creation, and economic growth; 5) pursue fiscally conservative
approaches to cultural and social issues like poverty, education, and health
care, that empower families rather than government bureaucracies; 6)
eradicate the inheritance tax and marriage penalty; 7) launch
market-opening Fair Trade agreements to increase U.S. exports and thus
offer secure jobs and an expanding farm economy; and 8) advance economic freedom
and republican capitalism around the world.
