Please count me in as a tea party member who is against higher taxes (for anyone) and bigger government. Since I have a job I can’t physically be at any of these parties. While it is logical to have the government spend more this year and next to help the global economy rebound, we need to slow spending down dramatically when things improve. At that point we should not increase taxes for the people who create the jobs. Punishing job creators with higher taxes ensures higher levels of unemployment and keeps the economy from rebounding quickly.
