AFP: Say no to tax increases

In an interview, Americans for Prosperity President Tim Phillips is not pleased with Congressional Republicans who are supporting tax increases as part of the fiscal cliff negotiations, reports NewsMax:

House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan, R-Wis., is the most surprising member on the list of Republican congressmen who have expressed a willingness to vote for tax increases, says Tim Phillips, president of conservative political action group Americans for Prosperity (AFP).

“But it’s deeply disappointing to see Chairman Ryan join [House] Speaker Boehner in signing off on new tax increases. They act like revenues are going down into government.” That’s simply not true, Phillips said. Revenues have steadily increased over the last decade. “These guys are just spending too much,” he said.
