Chaffetz Slams Obama’s Tax Hike Populism

Rep. Jason Chaffetz says Pres. Obama’s SOTU proposal to increase taxes on the rich to pay for benefits for the middle class will be dead on arrival in Congress.

Reports The Washington Times:

Mr. Chaffetz said that higher taxes would hurt middle-class families by undermining small business and hampering economic growth.

“We’ve got to make sure that we get a regulatory environment that’s predictable, that we bring those tax rates down and that we quit spending this money that we don’t have,” he said. “More government, a $300-plus billion tax bill from Barack Obama is not the formula for this country to succeed.”
