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!"

The federal government doesn't believe the people, when we petition the government to secede from the union..We need someone in washington who loves our country and is going to protect the american CITIZENS and our constitution...If they don't agree, they should get the hell out of our country. Who said they didn't have to live by the same laws they give us? Who said they can retire in 4 years, but we have to wait for 67 years. The federal government works for the people, and they need to be reminded of that fact...

Chicago style backroom deals have destroyed America. There will never be a budget , never be a cut in spending, and the only debt ceiling will be the one obama picks. The GOP is nothing but the right wing of the obama regime, together they are a greater threat to America that Stalin. Molon Labe

The recent Law to "avert the fiscal cliff" passed by Congress and signed by Pres. Obama, contained NO budget, NO cuts and tax increases on 77% of the American workers (most of whom are not rich). At the same time, it offered tax breaks and exemptions to the wealthy, including Hollywood and Nascar! Needless to say, 77% of the American people are in total agreement that those who voted for this will be voted out!

It's time you did your jobs and looked out for the American citizens of today and of the next generations. Leaving them the kind of debt we have allowed to buildup is nothing short of incompetent.
