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!"

Force us to buy what government orders? Try to infringe further against our 2nd amendment rights? A constant attack on the bill of rights and constitution? That is tyranny.

Thanks to your "Fiscal Cliff" deal and the consequential spike in payroll taxes, families across the country are forced to cut their budgets. Some of those families were already stretched to the limit. To think that in those same negotiations, YOU failed to cut even $0.01 from Federal Spending is unforgivable.

If you want to vote on pork projects, put them in a separate bill and vote. Stop with the pork pile-on for ANY bill.
