The U.S. Senate is back in session, and Harry Reid is expected to ram through job-destroying tax hikes any day now.
And the really bad news is, instead of standing up to Harry Reid's tax hikes, it looks like the GOP leadership may cave in to him.
Please take a moment and read Ron Paul's letter below about how you can help defeat this dangerous scheme.
After you sign your REAL CUTS RIGHT NOW fax petition, I need you to forward this email to your friends, family members and business associates.
With this dangerous legislation expected to move any day now, there's not a moment to waste.
Please take action IMMEDIATELY.

Subject: Flat-Out LIES!
Reports from D.C. indicate Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is plotting to replace the mandatory spending reductions known as "sequestration" with job-destroying tax hikes.
Senator Reid may try to ram his tax-and-spend legislation through the Senate this week.
Under the so-called "draconian" sequestration plan, spending will increase by $1.6 trillion over the next ten years - instead of by the planned increase of $1.7 trillion.
Yet even these phony cuts are too much for the spending addicts on Capitol Hill!
They would rather cripple the economy further with more tax hikes than even begin to slow the rate of the growth of spending!
I learned during my years in Congress that the only thing that will force the big spenders and big taxers to back down is pressure from constituents.
That's why it's vital you read C4L President John Tate's letter below and take action IMMEDIATELY.
And,"if you can, please support Campaign for Liberty's fight for fiscal responsibility with your most generous contribution.
The politicians' lips are moving - and you and I both know what that means.
But with $16.5 TRILLION in national debt, our country simply can't afford more games and flat-out LIES.
That's"why it's critical you sign your REAL CUTS RIGHT NOW Fax Petition IMMEDIATELY.
In the oncoming "sequester" showdown, you and I are going to have to turn up the heat on your Representative and Senators to inject some steel into the GOP Leadership's (lack of) spines.
After all, right now, politicians in both parties are running around screaming the sky will fall if these supposedly "draconian" sequester "cuts" are allowed to occur.
Here's what they're afraid of . . .
Should the sequester take place, instead of ramping up spending $1.7 TRILLION over the next 10 years, the sequester will mean spending only increases by . . . $1.6 TRILLION!
Even the "massive" cuts to our national defense that are supposed to leave our national security so vulnerable to enemy attacks are a crock.
Without sequestration, defense spending is supposed to increase by 20% in ten years. With it? An 18% increase.
While it would not address our $16.5 TRILLION debt, studies show if the statists would just agree to hold federal spending at 2.5% annual increases, the budget would be balanced in ten years!
But instead of even those token "cuts," the politicians are looking to raise taxes yet again!
And after you and I have seen the GOP congressional leadership roll over on so many important issues in recent months, I'm afraid the taxers could once again get their way.
That's why if liberty-minded Americans are serious at all about saving our country, you and I have to prove to our legislators they can't get away with this kind of nonsense.
Over the years, too many in Washington, D.C. have bought into the LIE that cutting a dime of spending is political suicide.
They think you want Big Government.
They think you want to be taken care of (and spied on, groped, and bossed around) from cradle to grave.
Of course, that's wrong.
But the truth is, refusing to cut spending is ECONOMIC SUICIDE!
That's"why your signed Fax Petition is so critical.
With your help, Campaign for Liberty will send Congress the message that no one is buying their LIES.
Instead of "cuts" in the rate of growth, the American people are demanding REAL CUTS RIGHT NOW.
So"won't you please sign your Fax Petition IMMEDIATELY?
And"if you can, please agree to a generous contribution of $35, $25, or $15 to help me really put the pressure on Congress.
As I mentioned, you and I must turn up the heat on your Representative and Senators to inject some steel into the GOP Leadership's (lack of) spines.
Only a massive grassroots tidal wave of opposition to any new smoky backroom "deals" is going to do the trick.
So I'm prepared to use mail and email and run hard-hitting Internet, radio, newspaper, and even TV ads if I can pay for them.
But I'm counting on you.
Won't"you please sign your REAL CUTS RIGHT NOW Fax Petition and agree to your to most generous contribution of $35, $25, or $15 IMMEDIATELY?
Even if all you can do right now is chip"in $10, it will make an enormous difference.
Please act at once!
