Petition to Congress to CUT SPENDING!!!

From: Heritage Action for America

“Debt limit: More of the same? Tell Washington NO!

Sign the petition: Any proposal must cut spending now and fix the budget process.

Dear Fellow Conservative,

Since the Spring, Washington has been abuzz with debt limit deadlines and rumored deals. But instead of actually solving our spending-induced debt crisis, Washington is delivering more of the same: secretive deals, gimmicks, and tax increases.

Do you want more of the same?

No! Cut spending now and fix the budget process.

Our children and grandchildren deserve a real proposal that cuts spending to squarely address our enormous debt.

Tell Washington: no more business as usual.

Are you with us? Sign the petition.

Michael A. Needham
Chief Executive Officer
Heritage Action for America”

“No more of the same from Washington

Oppose any debt limit deal that doesn’t address the enormity of the fiscal challenges we face.

Stop business as usual:

Any proposal that increases the debt ceiling must include historic reforms that will save the American dream for our children and grandchildren.

It must: cut current spending, restrict future spending, and fix the budget process.
Cut, Cap and Balance is the only plan on the table that meets this test.

Business as usual must end.

Sign Now

I oppose any debt limit deal that doesn’t address the enormity of our fiscal crisis. Congress must cut current spending, restrict future spending, and fix the budget process.

Our Letter to Congress

In order to achieve reforms of this magnitude, Congress must do everything possible to eliminate the uncertainty surrounding Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner’s August 2 deadline. Congress cannot negotiate with a clear mind if the administration is constantly invoking the specter of default. As Heritage Foundation economist J.D. Foster, Ph.D. points out:

Both immediately and long after it reaches the debt limit, the government would have far more than enough revenue coming in that the Secretary of the Treasury could use to pay interest on the debt. Nor would preserving the current debt limit put at risk the full faith and credit of the United States government, as the President’s chief economic adviser has claimed. The government would continue to pay net interest as it comes due.

In the event that liberals will not allow us to raise the debt ceiling because they cannot stomach substantive, systemic changes to put the country back on sound footing, conservatives must develop a responsible plan. Congress must exercise their constitutional power of the purse, building upon the framework of the Toomey-McClintock legislation, and prioritize federal spending.”

“Thank you for signing Heritage Action’s petition—calling on Washington to stop business as usual and seriously address our debt crisis.

Take the next step: send a detailed message to your Members of Congress.

When you urge them to support substantive proposals, you pave the way for our DC-based government relations team to push the message in the halls of Congress.

Take action, and together we will bring about conservative solutions to our debt crisis.”

“Please don’t support a debt ceiling increase without making fundamental reforms and real spending cuts.

Decades of irresponsible spending have saddled our children and grandchildren with crushing debt—each child is born with a $45,000 share of the national debt.

It would be irresponsible to raise the debt ceiling without enacting fundamental reforms and spending cuts.

Even if we reach the debt ceiling, America will not default on its debt unless Secretary Geithner refuses to pay interest on the debt.

Please oppose any debt limit deal that doesn’t addresses the enormity of the fiscal challenges we face.”

My addition:

compromise proposal:

1) The Balance Budget Amendment is dropped!

2) BEFORE ANY raising of the debt ceiling, Congress passes and the President signs a 2011-2012 fiscal year budget!

3) Federal income tax on ALL business income—sole proprietorship, partnerships, corporations of all types—will end in the 2011-2012 fiscal year budget. Only individual income will be taxed when distributed to individuals.

4) Spending WILL be cut in the 2011-2012 fiscal year budget so that the increase in the national debt for the fiscal year WILL BE NO MORE THAN ½ trillion dollars. Repeating: Deficit spending WILL BE NO MORE THAN ½ TRILLION DOLLARS.

5) For the fiscal year 2012-2013 budget which begins on October 1, 2012, deficit spending WILL BE NO MORE THAN ½ TRILLION DOLLARS.

6) In return, the debt ceiling will be raised by NO MORE THAN ½ TRILLION DOLLARS till October 1, 2012. Before the beginning of the 2012-2013 fiscal year budget, IF the national debt has NOT increased by more than ½ TRILLION DOLLARS, the debt ceiling will be raised another ½ TRILLION DOLLARS for the fiscal 2012-2013 budget year. If NOT, the debt ceiling will NOT be raised.

7) Let the 2012 election determine the fiscal direction of the country.

“Debt Ceiling: Congressional Republicans, Remember The Alamo!
Posted by Lloyd Marcus on July 26, 2011 at 11:57am

Some will say, ‘Lloyd, if your purpose is to inspire Republicans to stand strong in the debt ceiling debate, why on earth would you choose the battle at the Alamo which the good guys, the Texans, lost?’

The battle at the Alamo is the birthplace of Texas liberty. Approximately 250 Texans died fighting for their freedom against the 1500 man Mexican army. The Texans held the Mexicans at bay for 12 days before being massacred on the 13th day.

What I find so inspiring about the battle is the Texans knew they were going to die. And yet, they knew the time had come to draw a line in the sand taking a stand for freedom.

With Bill O'Reilly leading the charge, pundits and Washington elites advise Republicans to surrender to Obama’s irresponsible desire to raise the debt ceiling and raise taxes.

These smartest guys in the room say, ‘Obama has the polls and the media on his side. So, why go down in defeat.’ (Obama does NOT have the polls on his side—NOT polls that are accurate!! And the mass media is irrelevant since they always support him!—my addition)

Well I say, the Republicans must not allow fear, skewed polls and an ill-informed public to prevent them from doing what is best for America. The time has come for Republicans to draw a line in the sand; take a stand by fighting the tyranny of out of control, self serving vote manufacturing and insane government spending.

Thank God we have tea party freshmen who are standing on principle and saying ‘no’ to bankrupting the future of generations.

Here is how deep in the hole we are. Let’s suppose congress ceased all spending today and began making payments of 100 million dollars per day on our national debt. It would take us 389 years to pay off our national debt. Can you see how adding to our debt would be insane?

And yet, O’Reilly and company advise the Republicans to compromise to save themselves. Such behavior is not character driven leadership. To the Republicans, I say, ‘Remember the Alamo! Take a stand for freedom!’

Unlike the Texans, I do not believe the Republicans will be massacred. The informational highway has changed dramatically since 1995 when the liberal media successfully blamed the government shutdown on the Republicans.

While I must admit that ‘Black Barack’ Obama and his gang of media roughnecks are a ‘might powerful’, there’s a tough new lawman in town, Sheriff Tea Party.

Folks are still talkin’ about how back in November 2010, Sheriff Tea Party and his posse of bloggers, talk show-ers, social network-ers and rally-ers kicked the Obama gang’s XXXX (my deletion—my addition). They pretty much wreckin’ to do it again come November 2012.

And can we please lay to rest the lie that America will default on August 2nd if we do not raise the debt ceiling? This is yet another Obama and his gang of media roughnecks scare tactic.

Patriots, our characterless president and his minions will stop at nothing to further their socialistic agenda and destruction of America as we know it. Can you believe that after the Obama gang’s despicable attempt to make the tea party and opposition to Obamacare a racial matter, they are now attempting to make opposition to raising our debt about race?

Black political operatives including Congressional Black Caucus member, Shelia Jackson Lee are accusing the Republicans of saying no to raising the debt ceiling because Obama is black. These people have no shame. They are evil.”

“Obama’s characterless tactics of race baiting, blaming Bush, creating hostility towards achievers and commercials showing Republicans pushing granny over a cliff are challenging obstacles to overcome.

A dear long time black friend, Christian minister and mentor has bought the Obama gang’s spin hook, line and sinker. After a enjoyable chat about religious matters, he shifted the conversation to Republicans and the debt ceiling.

Suddenly, he became extremely angry. After vilifying Republicans claiming their sole existence is to make the rich richer on the backs of the poor, he concluded his rant saying, ‘By not raising the debt ceiling, Republicans are playing Russian roulette with the lives of the poor and seniors. If I were God, I would kill them ALL!’

Wow! I was struck by the depths of his passionate hate for Republicans. My friend is an example of the left’s successful hate campaign against achievers and Conservatives.

Still, I am extremely confident we will defeat Obama and his media minions in 2012.

Victory will require every patriot remaining focused and vigilant in their efforts. To my fellow believers in Christ, I would ask that you continue praying for our great country; an extraordinary wonderful experiment founded on Christian principles.

As for the Texans massacred at the Alamo, months later, Texas won it’s independence at the battle of San Jacinto; their battle cry, ‘Remember the Alamo!’

Republicans, please hang tough. America’s future rests on your shoulders and backbones.

Vice Chair,

Please help me spread my message by joining my Liberty Network”

As for President Barack Hussein Obama’s so called appeal for compromise. How much compromise occurred between Republicans and Democrats when the Democrats pushed through Obamacare with blatant bribes to Democrats who were concerned about losing their seat? To compromise with the present President is to capitulate to socialism!!! Ask Bart Stupak how well caving to Barack Hussein Obama worked out!!!

I Timothy 6: 10 “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people (and governments!—my addition), eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.”

There is NOTHING in the Constitution that grants authority to the federal government to spend money for education or to build sidewalks for a city or to do a lot of other things that the federal government is NOW doing! If the federal government would stop spending money in unauthorized areas, balancing the federal budget would be much easier and would not CORRUPT the behavior of so many within the United States. IT IS TIME TO STOP SPENDING!!! IT IS TIME TO DRASTICALLY CUT THE FEDERAL BUDGET!!!

It is time, it’s past time to RESTORE THE CONSTITUTION
It is time, it’s past time to RESTORE THE CONSTITUTION
It is time, it’s past time to RESTORE THE CONSTITUTION

It is time, it’s past time to OBEY THE CONSTITUTION
It is time, it’s past time to OBEY THE CONSTITUTION
It is time, it’s past time to OBEY THE CONSTITUTION

It’s time, it is past time to TAKE BACK THE NATION!!!
It’s time, it is past time to TAKE BACK THE NATION!!!
It’s time, it is past time to TAKE BACK THE NATION!!!

Pray that the House remains firmly committed to CUTTING SPENDING!!! Encourage them in all ways to REMAIN UNITED to CUT SPENDING!!! CUTTING SPENDING is the only way to balance the budget. You DO NOT give more money to a spendoholic!!!
