Call John Boehner !!!

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.

    I’ve been following politics for over 40 years, and I can tell you that each year brings; more debt, more spending, government continues to get bigger and bigger each year, with no “REAL REDUCTIONS” in sight!..
    So I wanted to do my own reasearch to find out WHY things never seem to get any better in Washington,D.C. no matter WHO We Elect into office?
    Ronald Reagan Ran On, and Won On, “A SMALLER AND LESS ENTRUSIVE GOVERNMENT”!….AFTER 8 YEARS IN OFFICE, “HOW MUCH SMALLER AND LESS ENTRUSIVE” WAS GOVERNMENT WHEN HE LEFT OFFICE?……..”IT WAS MUCH LARGER THAN EVER BEFORE!
    ELECTING GOOD MORRAL FOLKS INTO OFFICE DOES NOT EQUAL WHAT THEY SAID WHILE THEY WERE RUNNING FOR OFFICE!..THIS NOT TAKE “ANYTHING” AWAY FROM PRESIDENT REAGAN, WHO WAS ONE OF OUR BEST PRESIDENTS!……
    BUT WHAT I DID FIND THROUH MY RESEARCH IS THAT, WHEN YOU COMBIND WELL- MEANING FOLKS WITH A “POLITICAL PARTY”, YOU END UP WITH A ELECTED OFFICAL THAT IS SUBJECT TO EVERY ASPECT OF CONTROLING PARTIES “INTEREST AND POWER TO CONTROL” EVERY SEGMENT OF ANY DECISIONS AFFECTING “WE THE PEOPLE”!

     
  2. I believe government should be less INtrusive. I don’t know what an ENtrusive government is. I don’t believe we’ve ever had one in the US. What we do have is a one party system with dueling labeling. There’s not a dime’s difference between either side.

    However, I am also ashamed of those alleged or self-labeled conservatives campaigning on “smaller government” while increasing the size of the Federal government, which is the only present growth center of the economy, as it was under Reagan, Bush I, Clinton, Bush II, and now, Obama. I am sick to death of privatization of soldiering, security, and every other function, as a single one of the 120,000 contract soldiers now in the War on a Tactic costs us at least $500,000 more per year than an employee of the Army.

    Perhaps we should return to Constitutional government, Constitutional issuance of money, which is by the Congress only and that issuance done at no interest, and without fiat currency. And, those are just for starters. But, what do I know? I’m just a citizen.

     
  3. The professional political class has forked our country right into the ground.

    This is normally the point where I would suggest that the TEA Party target Boehner for defeat come November of 2012, but I’m not confident that this nation can be salvaged by that point.

    To put it bluntly, we are flat out of time.

    • With the president giving Israel a 30 day ultimatum, we may not need to worry about November 2012. I remember the 6-day war. It didn’t end well for those who opposed Israel. The president seems ignorant of the facts, or he’s setting us up to fail, again.

       
      • Judy,

        Failing (as in screwing over) Israel has a strange way of turning once powerful nations into 3rd world also-rans.

        Just sayin.’

        • Yep, that’s exactly what I’m afraid of, though it probably would have been clearer if I hadn’t left entire words out of my sentences. :-/
