Help Us Renew the Bush Tax Cuts!

On December 31st 2010 the Bush tax cuts will fully and completely expire — automatically giving Americans a massive tax increase. Please join former Sen. Fred Thompson and the League of American Voters in demanding that Congress renew these tax cuts and keep our economy sound.

Urgent Message From Former Sen. Fred Thompson

Dear Fellow American:

On Dec. 31, 2010, almost every working American will be hit with a massive, across-the-board tax increase on their income and investments.

On this date, the Bush tax cuts, enacted in 2001 and 2003, completely expire.

We must urge Congress and the president to renew the Bush tax cuts early, before they expire and before investors lose confidence in the U.S. economy.

Sen. Fred Thompson

The automatic tax increase that will begin on Jan. 1, 2011, and could have catastrophic consequences for the economy.

Petition to Renew the Bush Tax Cuts

I, the undersigned, an American citizen, taxpayer, and voter.

Whereas the U.S. is facing one of the worst recessions since the Great Depression;

Whereas consumer spending and economic activity has contracted causing the downturn and high unemployment;

Whereas the Bush tax cuts, enacted in 2001 and 2003, will fully and automatically expire as of Dec. 31, 2010;

Whereas the expiration of these cuts will cause a massive tax rate increase for almost all working Americans, including those in the:

  • 35% bracket which will increase to 39.6%
  • 33% bracket which will increase to 36%
  • 28% bracket which will increase to 31%
  • 25% bracket which will increase to 28%
  • 10% and 15% will condense to 15%

Whereas the capital gains tax will increase from 15% to 20%

Whereas the tax on dividends will increase from 15% to 39.6%

We demand that our representatives in Congress fully and completely renew the Bush tax cuts; and do so without delay to ensure public confidence in the markets and economy.
