Cut Spending Now! No More Backroom Deals!

Messages Sent So Far

The late night fiscal cliff drama cast Senator Mitch McConnell and Vice President Joe Biden as heroes.

But the appearance of the Senate coming to the rescue obscures the fact the Senate had recklessly refused to act for months, sitting on the House-passed bill to avert the tax hikes, H.R.8, for fully five months before jamming a massive amendment through when there was no time to consider any changes, or even fully understand its provisions.

With another looming deadline coming March 1 when the postponed sequestration spending cuts take effect and the country approaches the debt ceiling, the Senate cannot be allowed to again wait until the last minute and then cut a backroom deal.

Urge the Senate: "Cut spending NOW, on the Senate floor in the light of day. Don't wait until the deadline for another backroom deal!"

Do your job, make a budget that does real spending cuts! Not the so called cuts that reduces the amount of a spending increase.

You all should be ashamed of the shambles that you are creating in "our" country from your greediness. Start catting you salaries and perks before anything else. You all need voted out!

Obama is demonstrating that he, in fact, is the obstructionist to negotiations on the debt. Republicans have already compromised on taxes and are (again) willing to raise the debt ceiling BUT with spending cuts to rein in this obomination (Obama Nation).

Regular Order! Our Representative Republic requires Regular Legal Order! Not the compromises by a self-appointed political few that trade of frees to those institutions that have been granted absolute access to determine our lives, as their increase the power and wealth of theirs!

Decrease the size of government by eliminating duplicated agencies,reducing the size of the Dept of Education,Department of Energy , the EPA and the number of staff for the President ,Cabinet members,, MIchelle Obama,Joe Biden and Congress. Freeze pay for everyone in DC with nothing going toward Retirement or other unnecessary benefits. No more money going to foreign countries until we get our act together.
