From Across the Pond: Descendants of Our Founders Rise Up!

Here’s the link Telegraph.co.uk

Oh so British…

The inaugural British Tea Party will take place on Saturday in my home town of Brighton, and I’ll be speaking. Do try to come: here are the details.

Labour has raised more than a trillion pounds in additional taxation since 1997. Yet, unbelievably, Gordon Brown has still managed to run up a deficit of 12.6 per cent of GDP (Greece’s is 12.7 per cent). A far lower level of taxation brought Americans out in spontaneous protest last year.

If you happen to be coming to the Conservative Spring Conference, do please pop in: the Tea Party is five minutes’ walk from the conference venue. It is, however, outside the security zone, and anyone is welcome to come. Oh, and this being England, we’ll be serving actual, you know, tea. I hope to see some of this blog’s readers there.

Good Show!

To the Phones! NO NEW TAXES!!

FromRepublican Michigander

It’s time for us to call our reps!

The House is expected to vote on five revenue bills during Tuesday’s session.

House Democrats are expected to caucus for several hours before the vote. If all five revenue proposals were to become law they would raise an estimated $345.8 million.

The revenue proposals are:
•a 15 percent reduction in Michigan Business Tax credits, equal to $116.1 million
•raising the state’s other tobacco products tax by $41 million
•an extended hours liquor license fee to raise $13.7 million,
•freezing some personal exemptions to the income tax to save $55 million,
•and raising the earned income tax credit by less than the scheduled level to save $120 million.

A sixth proposal to launch a tax on physicians at 3 percent is not expected to come up for a vote today.

The Government Can!

Sometimes you have to take a break, have a good laugh…. then continue the good fight..

Government, even in its best state, is but a necessary evil; in its worst state, an intolerable one. — Thomas Paine
