"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."

Speaker of the House John Boehner: Tax Hikes Will Hurt Job Creation

UPDATE:  Senator Mitch McConnell has now also weighed in that the Obama Grand Bargain on the Debt Ceiling is unlikely.  With the majority of Americans not wanting any new taxes or even the debt ceiling raised, what is Obama going to do now?  His Grand Scheme is failing as Republicans have figured out in a hurry it was all about tax hikes which would kill the economy even more and create less jobs.

Tax Hikes Will Hurt Job Creation

We have three major problems in America: government spends too much; our country is in a debt crisis; and our economy still isn’t creating enough jobs.

House Republicans recently unveiled our Plan for America’s Job Creators to encourage private-sector job growth, as well as a budget, The Path to Prosperity, that takes on Washington’s out-of-control spending and addresses our nation’s growing debt. Neither plan includes tax hikes because we understand that increasing taxes on job creators will only hurt job growth even more.

Now we are facing tough negotiations for an agreement on our debt limit. And unfortunately, despite good-faith efforts to find common ground, the White House will not pursue a bigger debt reduction agreement without tax hikes.

House Republicans have been very clear that tax hikes will not included in any agreement. The American People do not want higher taxes and the new GOP majority will stand with the people.

You would never know from the so-called conservative pundits that tax hikes are not on the table from the House.  Article after article has stated the Repulicans will cave on tax hikes and now we hear from the Speaker that is not going to happen and the House will not for for tax hikes.  Maybe it is time some pundits got some new sources because the ones they have are not doing a good job.
