Taxes on the middle class are going up, and it's Barack Obama's fault. Thanks to the President's new spending proposals, middle-class families can now look forward to a $4,000 annual tax increase.

That means, if you're like the majority of Americans who get paid twice a month, $166 will be taken out of every single paycheck. We need to get our fiscal house in order -- it's an economic and moral imperative.

Americans deserve a president who won't bury their children and grandchildren under mountains of debt. When Mitt Romney is president, he will cut spending, restore our AAA credit rating, and set us on a path to a balanced budget. His Plan for a Stronger Middle Class will lead to a recovery that creates 12 million jobs and grows the economy on average by 4% per year.

We can't afford to wait.

Please contribute $5 today to help elect Mitt Romney and get America's fiscal house in order.
