Legislator: Sen. Charles E. Schumer

Issue: Tax Reform

Senate Democrats plan to draft a budget blueprint that calls for significantly higher taxes on the wealthy, oil and gas companies and corporations doing business overseas, reopening a battle over taxes Republicans had hoped to lay to rest with the “fiscal cliff.”

"There's going to have to be some spending cuts, and those will be negotiated," Schumer, the No. 3 Democrat in the Senate, said in an interview after the show. "But doing a budget is the best way for us to get revenues."

ACTION ALERT: Call your Senators, Call your House Representative - tell them that they already got their tax increase. NO MORE. Now we want Major Budget Cuts - immediate, sustained and large, to head toward a balanced budget.
