Heritage Action, the lobbying arm of the conservative think tank Heritage Foundation, on Wednesday urged lawmakers to vote against House Speaker John Boehner's "Plan B" to avert the so-called fiscal cliff.
"America’s coming fiscal crisis is a result of overspending, not under-taxing," reads a statement on the group's website. "Allowing a tax increase to hit a certain segment of Americans and small businesses is not a solution; it is a political ploy."
Heritage Action added that it will include the vote, scheduled in the House later this week, on its legislative scorecard.
Another conservative group, Americans for Tax Reform, announced on Wednesday that a 'yes' vote on the legislation would not violate a pledge to not raise taxes, however.
