Conservative Leaders React To Speaker Boehner's 'Plan B'

Reacting to Speaker John Boehner's Plan B proposal, a group of conservative leaders today released the following statement:
As leaders of broad based American citizen groups we call upon Republican House Members to vote no on Speaker Boehner’s Tax Hike known as “Plan B.”  This tax increase bill is just like the tax increase proposal Nancy Pelosi offered last year on May 23.

Speaker Boehner, President Obama, Nancy Pelosi and too many Members of the Republican conference have forgotten that the problem in Washington is too much spending and not too little taxation.

When the American people voted to return the Republican majority in the House last month we sent you to cut spending.  Instead, you are now voting on the Pelosi plan to increase taxes next year.

We urge Members of the House to vote no on the procedural rule to stop the Pelosi/Boehner tax plan from coming to the House floor for a vote.

It's comforting to know that there are some conservatives in DC who are not willing to sell out their principles for the sake of political compromise. A compromise, I might add, that will do NOTHING to remedy the fiscal mess we're in.
