Americans for Tax Reform

Dear Friends,
As we look past Tax Day towards Election Day 2012, I encourage you to check out some of the excellent work Americans for Tax Reform is doing to protect taxpayers nationwide.
In an effort to push back against President Obama’s class warfare campaign rhetoric, ATR highlighted the pure political gamesmanship of the Obama Administration’s call for the “Buffett Rule.” According to our analysis, the tax code is already steeply-progressive. In fact, most taxes in America are paid by top earners, who face the highest tax rates. There is clearly no benefit to this rule other than to distract Americans from focusing on the important issues such as jobs and economic growth.
On April 16, ATR hosted our annual Tax Day Eve press conference with prominent conservative leaders and Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI). All the speakers focused on the need to reform the tax code to make it simpler, flatter, and fairer. You can watch the whole press conference on C-SPAN.
I recently penned an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal entitled "Trickle-Down Taxation", which highlights the need for Americans to keep vigilant against the promises of politicians to tax only the rich. All tax hikes eventually hit the middle class. The Alternative Minimum Tax was imposed in 1969 because 115 households investing in municipal bonds reportedly paid little or no federal income tax. It is now set to hit 27 million more—raising an estimated $120 billion.
Finally, with the focus on the presidential campaign, you may have missed the news that California is no longer the world’s eighth largest economy. ATR State Affairs Director Patrick Gleason and I explain in Politico why energy policy has lead Brazil to surpass California in terms of economic size.

Special: Something Very Big Will Happen in America in the Next 180 Days!

Dear Reader:
     Something bigger than the credit crisis of 2008 is headed our way.
     For most people, it will hit them like a brick wall.
     It will touch Americans harder and deeper than anything else we've seen since the Great Depression.
     Michael Lombardi feels so strongly about this, he's decided to present his "Critical Warning Number Six" in a new video.
     In case you're not familiar with him...
     Michael Lombardi has been widely recognized as predicting five major economic events over the past 10 years.
     In 2002, he started advising his readers to buy gold-related investments when gold traded under $300 an ounce.
     In 2006, he begged his readers to get out of the housing market...before it plunged.
     He was among the first (back in late 2006) to predict that the U.S. economy would be in a recession by late 2007.
     Michael correctly predicted the crash in the stock market of 2008 and early 2009.
     Finally, Michael turned bullish on stocks in March of 2009 and rode the bear market rally from a Dow Jones Industrial Average of 6,440 on March 9, 2009, to 12,952 on February 29, 2012 a gain of 101%.
     I call Michael's video controversial because most people will not like what he has to say...they will find it hard to believe until they see all the facts as Michael presents them.
     Michael's first five predictions have already come true. Now he's issuing Critical Warning Number Six. I urge you to be among the first to see this new video here now.
Yours truly,
Wendy Potter, BA
