Don't Cut Taxes on Rich to Balance Budget

We, the undersigned, hereby declare that we will not support the reelection of any member of congress, regardless of party, who votes for a budget that cuts taxes for the rich while simultaneously cutting programs that poor and moderate income individuals depend on.

Why is this important?

Paul Ryan's budget proposal cuts programs that many people depend on while simultaneously cutting taxes for the wealthy and corporations at a time when their taxes are already lower than they have been for the greater part of a century. This is quite simply taking from the poor to give to the rich and is unacceptable. The petition is not to request tax hikes or that programs not be cut, there are other petitions for those things. This petition is simply saying to all members of congress (Republican, Democrat, and Independent) that if they support a budget plan that cuts both taxes for the wealthy and programs for average Americans they will have forfeited our vote when they come up for reelection.
