Speaker Boehner responded to Democrats’ latest push for more tax hikes today, making clear that there will be no budget agreement that raises taxes on American families and small businesses, which would make it harder to create jobs. As Boehner said:
As budget talks get underway today, Congressional Democrats are wasting no time in launching another push for tax hikes that will hurt the economy and make it harder to create jobs.
Remember, President Obama proposed the sequester. He threatened to veto any effort to replace it unless taxes went up on families and small businesses -- “There will be no easy off-ramps on this one,” he said. Well, he got his tax hikes. Now we need to address our spending problem.
At a press conference today with Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA), House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) underscored the need for President Obama and his Democratic-controlled Senate to take action to avert the fiscal cliff...
Democrats – even those openly talking about driving off the fiscal cliff – are already on the record against much of the White House plan.
Last quarter’s paltry two percent economic growth – “too weak to rapidly boost hiring” – is another indictment of President Obama’s failed mixture of ‘stimulus’ spending, excessive regulations, and looming tax hikes.

Democrats have been “put in [a] tight spot” by their threats to tank our economy and harm our national security if they don’t get a small business tax hike.
Speaker John Boehner released the following statement today regarding a new study by Ernst & Young that shows President Obama’s small business tax hike will destroy more than 700,000 American jobs.
With Democrats making “explicit threats” to tank our already weak economy if they don’t get a small business tax hike, a new survey shows a majority of Americans opposes raising taxes on anyone.
