Just in case you didn’t think Rep. Mike Pence (Indiana-6) was awesome check out this press release.
Washington, Dec 2 – House Republican Conference Chairman Mike Pence (R-IN) endorsed U.S. Congressman Louie Gohmert’s (R-TX) tax holiday plan today. Gohmert’s plan would put $350 billion of the $700 billion bailout still available to Secretary Paulson toward a tax holiday from both personal income tax and FICA tax for Americans during January and February of 2009.
My two cents: If the U.S. government is going to get involved in “bailing out” peope who would be better to bail out than the American taxpayer? Rep. Mike Pence understands that “bailout” money doesn’t grow on trees…it comes from taxpayers’ pockets. Kudos to the new Number 3 in House Republican Leadership for standing up for the American Taxpayer.
