Plan to come to our Moore Tea Citizens picnic on Saturday, August 13th – 12 – 3, Cannon Park, Pinehurst. We’re calling it “We Ain’t Goin’ Away”. The founder and head of Tea Party Nation, Judson Phillips, will be keynoting, and we’ll have the writer and producer of “We Ain’t Goin’ Away”, Bruce Bellott, on hand as well. Ben Franklin is stopping by for the picnic, along with many TEA leaders and members from here and across the state.
If you can come just send a note to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Despite our nation’s staggering $14.4 trillion debt, there are many in the Obama Administration and Congress who want to raise our nation’s debt limit without any spending cuts or reforms.
We believe that this is a fiscally irresponsible position that would place America on the Road to Ruin. At the same time, we believe that the current debate over raising the debt limit provides a historic opportunity to focus public attention, and then public policy, on a path to a balanced budget and paying down our debt.
We believe that the “Cut, Cap, Balance” plan for substantial spending cuts in FY 2012, a statutory spending cap, and Congressional passage of a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution is the minimum necessary precondition to raising the debt limit. The ultimate goal is to get us back to a point where increases in the debt limit are no longer necessary.
If you agree, take the Cut, Cap, Balance Pledge! There are versions for elected officials, federal candidates and ordinary citizens.
I pledge to urge my Senators and Member of the House of Representatives to oppose any debt limit increase unless all three of the following conditions have been met:
1.Cut – Substantial cuts in spending that will reduce the deficit next year and thereafter.
2.Cap – Enforceable spending caps that will put federal spending on a path to a balanced budget.
3.Balance – Congressional passage of a Balanced Budget Amendment to the U.S. Constitution — but only if it includes both a spending limitation and a super-majority for raising taxes, in addition to balancing revenues and expenses.
