We will all PAY

Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Democrat from California, was elected new speaker of the house, since Democrats took control of Congress in the November election. She had said, during her campaign, she was against tax increases. Conservatives say her election will mean a rise in taxes. Minority leader John A. Boehner from Ohio put forth a motion that would prevented taxes being raised without a super majority of three-fifths vote, but it was voted down.

"American taxpayers need to hold on to their wallets because the new House rules concerning taxes are not worth the paper they're written on," said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform (ATR).

"After spending an entire year on the campaign trail claiming she will not raise taxes, the first vote Nancy Pelosi brings to the floor for a vote as speaker will open the door to billions and billions of dollars of tax increases over the next two years," Mr. Norquist said.
So, watch for your wallet to be flatter due to tax increases by this Congress!
