...letting the payroll tax holiday expire. I mean, a tax break that helps the lowly, hurting working class and is actually stimulative? Can't have that.

Wonder why Grover is so quiet.

Their shrill cries of "no tax increases for any reason" have always rung hollow. Sure they want lower taxes, but what they really want is to crush anything that helps the poor and lower middle class. I don't understand what they're trying to achieve, except their Rand-ian utopian fantasies.

"We must act now. The longer the oppressive tax burden on honest, hardworking individuals remains unaddressed, the larger and more deadly this fire will become."
