Message from TeaPartyPatriots.org:
Republicans promised in their Pledge To America: “With common-sense exceptions for seniors, veterans, and our troops, we will roll back government spending to pre-stimulus, pre-bailout levels, saving us at least $100 billion in the first year alone and putting us on a path to begin paying down the debt, balancing the budget, and ending the spending spree in Washington that threatens our children’s future.”
Last November, 2010, Americans returned Republicans to power in the House for two main purposes:
1. Repeal and/or defund ObamaCare
2. Drastically reduce spending
It was because of our votes that John Boehner became Speaker of the House.
But Boehner and the GOP didn’t cut $100 billion as promised. In fact, they ended up increasing spending in some areas. And they certainly didn’t push very hard to defund Obamacare.
The American people expect results, not excuses. The TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Party movement fought tooth and nail to defeat ObamaCare, even though we knew it was an uphill battle. We expect the Republican leaders in Washington to fight just as hard and to keep their promises!
And we expect it NOW.
Soon, the House will decide whether or not to increase the debt limit. Americans have spoken soundly, and a large majority oppose any increase in a limit that has been increased 10 times in 11 years!
When all of the real debt is added together, America’s debt is closer to $130 trillion.
So… should we raise the debt ceiling further?
Speaker Boehner has already indicated that he’s willing to raise the debt limit for a certain price… Is he not listening to the American people?
Speaker Boehner, whose team are you on?
Let Boehner and your Republican representative hear from you today.
Tell them you expect the Republicans to live up to their Pledge To America and we oppose an increase to America’s debt limit.
This is Boehner’s office phone no.: (202) 225-0600.
