We knew we'd hear lots of ideas and proposals and promises  and he didn't disappoint us. There was something in that speech for everyone. Well, almost everyone. The speech lasted 77 minutes and contained 77 new spending proposals, but there was nothing in it for the American taxpayers, the people who pay the bills. I'm talking about meaningful tax relief. Not targeted tax cuts that try to dictate social conduct, rewarding only a few, with too few dollars. I mean real tax relief. In living rooms ,across this country, Americans watched the President s speech hoping to hear about tax relief, the one thing that would mprove their future more than any new or expanded government program ever could -- the one thing taxpayers tell me they need most. Americans today are taxed at the highest level in history, with nearly 40 percent ofa typicalbudget going to pay taxes on the federal, state, and local level. If you re like most folks, struggling to pay the bills and support both a familyand Uncle Sam at the same time, that,probably doesnt come as much of a surprise. You re working nearly three hours of each eight-hour work day just to pay off your tax bill. They tax it when you earn it... Tax it again when you save it... Tax it again when you spend it .... Tax it again when you invest it... And tax it yet again when you die. No wonder Americans fee/overtaxed! I don't need to remind you that you're working longer days and more overtime hours than ever before, just, to pay that tax bill. Through your hard work, you ve given the economy a tremendous boost. In fact, you've 8enerated a federal budget surplus that will reach $80 bilhon this year, and $4.5 trillion - that's  - over the next 15 years. You generated that surplus  not Congress,, not the President, but you. And Washington shouldn t stand first in line to get your money. But with a $4 and-a-half trillion surplus, how come the average taxpayer won't get even a penny of it back under the President's plan? Instead of tax relief, the President on Tuesday roposed 77 new ways for Washington to spend your tax ollars. If you have a job, drive a car, use a computer, oto school, get sick, shop, drive, bank, and si resident has a new program he wants )'ou to It adds up to about $300 billion m new spending a year, the largest spending increase by any president in our nation's history, all fir you, the taxpayers. More spending, more government, more Washington, isn't the answer. The answer lies that return power to the taxpayers and leave a littl of your own money in your pocket at the end On Tuesday, the same day the President outlining his 77 new spending priorities, I led the to rein in the government s reach by introducin Cuts for All Americans Act, the one bill that most to help America's working families. Our ptan will cut the personal tax rate for American by ten percent, across the board, re your tax bill by hundreds, or thousands, ofd{,ll You see, I believe individuals and families make their own spending decisions. doesn't know when your child is sick and needs medical help, or when your furnace has to be or when that tuition bil/is due. You have to decisions every day, and the government shouidn making those decisions any harder for you than already are. The across the board tax cut is simple. Y( have to be a tax lawyer or an accountant to it. The across the board tax cut is fair. because not pitting one group of taxpayers ag The across the. board tax cut is pro growth. When tax rates go down, workers additional dollar they earn. That s a incentive to work harder, be more more economic growth. The across the board tax cut says doesn't have all the answers. It ensures dollars are spent on family priorities spending schemes. And the across the board tax cut is Under my of this ye Simple, fair, good for the eeonom 2 Imagine what a difference a tax cut plan 1 those four important principles could make file your taxes one year from now..On b eha f taxpayers, I look forward to making, the ten across the board tax cut the centerpmce of friendlier tax code. other relatives.
