FRC Action and Liberty Central to Host Live Webcast on Looming Massive Tax Hikes

Oct 20, 2010, 07:00 ET from FRC Action

WASHINGTON, Oct. 20 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Tonight at 8:30 p.m. ET, Family Research Council Action and Liberty Central will co-host a live one hour webcast called "The Taxman Cometh: Stopping the Obama Tax Hikes."

Tony Perkins, President of Family Research Council Action and Ginni Thomas of Liberty Central will be joined by Rep. Tom Price, Bishop Harry Jackson, and others to discuss how the looming massive tax increases will impact American families and how voters can mobilize to stop them.

When Congress passed tax relief for families in 2001 and 2003, some Members of Congress insisted the tax cuts be staggered and temporary, with the result being a large scheduled tax hike in 2011.

If these cuts are not made permanent, come 2011, American families will face one of the largest tax increases in history; average taxes would rise $1,800 per taxpayer, and 48 million married couples will face an average hike of $3,007, with many paying more than if they merely cohabited. A family of four earning $40,000 would see an increase of over $2,300 in taxes. If President Obama and Members of Congress allow for the tax relief to expire at the end of 2010, Americans will pay about $280 billion more in taxes each year.
