Action Alert: Sign the no lame-duck petition

FreedomWorks is asking people to sign a petition that it says tells Congress "to respect the will of the people as expressed through this fall’s election results."

The petition reads:
Dear Member of Congress,

The Lame Duck session is upon us, and though there are lawmakers who might still try to push their big government agenda in a last-hurrah before they leave town, I urge you to respect the will of the people as expressed in the recent election.

The Bush-era tax cuts are about to expire and taxes could shoot up for millions of Americans already struggling in the current economic downturn. The election was clear: Washington has a spending problem, not a funding problem and tax hikes would hurt the economy even further.

As your constituent, I urge you to vote against any tax hikes.

I also know that dealing with the Bush tax cuts, aren't the only potential issue during this lame duck session. I urge you to oppose any efforts to pass a cap and trade energy tax, any stimulus payments, additional bailouts, other tax hikes, and allowing the death tax to come back at 55%.

These would go directly against the will of the people - having had their say in the November Elections - and I urge you to oppose them as the worst kind of political, dirty-trick. The people have spoken and the people said “We want less - less taxes, less spending, less government.”

I will be watching your vote very closely on cap and trade, additional taxpayer-funded bailouts, any attempts to increase taxes, and any other policy proposals that erode more of our freedoms and expand the reach of government.
