CALL & E-MAIL or FAX your Senators today! Let them know what you really think about RAISING the DEBIT CEILING! I just wrote ALL Republican senators plus a few Dems:

As a voting American, I respectfully urge you to NOT RAISE THE DEBT CEILING! I have had enough of Obama's scare tactics. I am on Social Security and the failing Medicare program and I'm disgusted with this clueless president's rhetoric. LIES!!!

You were elected because Americans thought (& hoped) you would have more sense than this "man-child."
STAND FIRM!
DUMP THE GANG OF SIX!
DO NOT COMPROMISE!
DO NOT CAVE-IN!
DO NOT BE COWED BY THE LIBERAL PROGRESSIVE DEMOCRATS LIES!!!!

If you must raise the debt ceiling at the very least pass CUT,CAP & BALANCE! Senator Conrad has said CCB is the most irresponsible legislation to come from the House & he is DEAD WRONG!!! OBAMA CARE WAS THE WORST LEGISLATION to come out of anywhere! Let's NOT forget who YOU are dealing with... IRRESPONSIBLE "NO PLAN" DEMOCRATS!!!

REMEMBER: "One man with courage is a majority." ~ Thomas Jefferson

RSC Update: The House Votes on Cut, Cap, and Balance This Week

 

From the Chairman

As Washington continues to debate the debt limit this week, it’s important to remember one point.  Hitting the debt limit is just a symptom of the real problem – we spend too much and have too much debt.  If the debt limit is raised without real changes in spending, S&P and Moody’s have warned the U.S. may still lose its AAA credit rating. A downgrade could raise interest rates, weaken the dollar, and cause our debt to grow even faster.

 

The only plan that can actually solve our debt problems is Cut, Cap, and Balance.  So I am very pleased that tomorrow, the House will vote on H.R. 2560, the Cut, Cap, and Balance Act of 2011.  After implementing real cuts and caps on spending, this legislation says that the President’s request for a debt limit increase will only be honored after the House and Senate have passed a Balanced Budget Amendment.  The “balance” provision is the most important part. Without it, cuts today can easily disappear tomorrow.

 

A Balanced Budget Amendment would force Washington to live within its means and allow us to pay down the debt. That means less government, lower taxes, and more jobs, especially for the next generation, whose futures have been mortgaged by the national debt to the tune of $46,000 each.  The Cut, Cap, and Balance Act is the plan this country needs.

 

God Bless,

 

Congressman Jim Jordan

Chairman, Republican Study Committee

HIS Fault 



The Washington Post babbled again today about Obama inheriting a huge deficit from Bush. Amazingly enough, a lot of people swallow this BULL. 

So once more, a short civics lesson. 


Budgets do not come from the White House. They come from Congress and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democratic Party.
 

Furthermore, the Democrats controlled the budget process for Fiscal Year 2008 & FY 2009 as well as FY 2010 & FY 2011
.

In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush somewhat belatedly got tough on spending increases.


For FY 2009 though, 
Nancy Pelosi &Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the FY 2009 budgets. 

And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete FY 2009. Let's remember what the deficits looked like during that period: (below)
If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the FY 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets.

If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself. 

In a nutshell, what Obama is saying is I inherited a deficit that I voted for
 
and then I voted to expand that deficit four-fold since January 20th.

Check out Tea Party Patriots www.teapartypatriots.org & send your FREE FAX to your Senators & Congressman & tell them to STOP SPENDING! They will also supply you with phone numbers if you would prefer to call them. Do it today. Don't "walk out" of the discussion just because President Obama thinks he can get away with it.
Comment by Nina Marlow on July 7, 2011 at 11:14am

Write you Senators and representative today & tell them:

DO NOT RAISE the DEBT CEILING!  We need to keep reminding our

 representatives to STOP SPENDING. We do NOT have a revenue

problem... it's a SPENDING PROBLEM!

Dear Senator Kyl,

I respectfully urge you, NO DEMAND you NOT raise the debt ceiling!

NO MORE BACK ROOM DEALS! The American TAXPAYER is tired of more sneaky, BEHIND CLOSED DOOR TREACHERY like OBAMA CARE!

CUT, CAP & BALANCE!!! SIGN the PLEDGE, NOW!!!!  NO NEW TAXES!!!

The nation's debt crisis is here.  Conservative members of the House & Senate have joined forces last week in the "CUT, CAP & BALANCE" Pledge.  Unfortunately, AZ senators have not signed the pledge to OPPOSE the DEBT LIMIT unless Congress (1) cuts current spending dramatically, )2) caps spending out into the future, and (3) passes the BALANCED BUDGET AMENDMENT. Check out Jim DeMint's Senate Conservatives site... He has a link that you can click on to reach your senator from all states.

if you think the middle east is bad, look in our own back yard. this article shows there are more killings in mexico in one city than in all of the middle east, yet we spend billions over there. if we are really so worried about atrocities in other countries (libya) mexico needs our help more than any other. besides, it is helping us, because the war is on drugs that are brought to the U.S.
copy and paste.  http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/06/01/us-mexico-drugs-monterrey...
mexico is a country that could be a world power, and then they wouldnt need to come over here illegally or try to take back "their land" (la raza).

U S House votes against supporting Obama in Lybia. All AZ representatives who voted, voted against the measure. It is not binding, but shows lack of support for Obama's policy. Check out other votes at the Watching the Feds group, How They Voted discussion.
