Phil Mickelson: High Taxes Hurt


Phil Mickelson: Drastic Changes

"Collecting more taxes than is absolutely necessary is legalized robbery." If there was ever a quote to summarize what both state and local governments are doing to the American taxpayer, it is the "legalized robbery" that Calvin Coolidge spoke about.

In fact it has gotten so bad that in places like California, top earners have to pay upwards of 63% in combined state and local income taxes! Just last week golfer Phil Mickelson, a native Californian, hinted that he would have to make "drastic changes" with his personal finances because of high taxes.

Phil is not alone, and people are fleeing California in record numbers, begging the question: Who do these high tax rates really hurt?

The answer: the middle class. You see, here at the Contract From America we understand that high tax rates are simply not the answer, and California is a great example why.

President Obama and his liberal allies continue to pile up debt at record levels by spending well beyond their means, in the middle of a recession, and then expecting us to pay for their irresponsibility!

We don't have a revenue problem in this country, we have a spending problem!

High wage earners are taking that money to income tax free states such as Texas and Florida, which are now thriving. California on the other hand is crumbling under the weight of its own tax and spend mentality.

Over the next four years, taxes will be a key battleground issue for conservatives and the Contract From America will push our pillar of fundamental tax reform harder now than ever; keeping signers and other legislators honest to their pledges. We need you standing next to us in this fight.

Donate today and let's tell Congress and state legislatures everywhere: Enough is enough!

In Freedom,
