On January 1, 2013, there will be an explosion of new taxes and tax increases.I believe that a vote for Romney will be your best chance to reverse some of the below tax increases. For some families these taxes can be devastating.The effect on you may be worse than the example below.
Based on the best estimates here are some of the changes. Please, make yourself aware of the facts and not the political spin that is rampert in the news. If you do, I am sure you will make the right decision and cast your vote for Romney, McMahon and Roraback and help turn this economy around.
