Mary Wortley Montagu
While the Left seems obsessed with increasing taxes and spending even more money, conservatives have focused more heavily on the need for spending restraint and entitlement reform - primarily to preserve and protect the future of the Medicare program. Overlooked in all of this is the future of Medicaid.

There are several reasons to oppose tax increases. First, every dollar of tax increase is a dollar you didn't get in spending restraint.
