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!"

Bad Laws pass when Congress can Exempt themselves from the rest of the country. Such as Obama Care for a great example. I believe you people should be made to also live with what you deal the people!!!!!!!!!!

Washington has a spending problem -- not a 'revenue' problem. I want to keep more of my money !!!
