Get the message? Tell your Senator. From Matt Kibbe at FreedomWorks”
The will of the American people was heard loud and clear on Wednesday night as thousands like you called Congress to demand that they cut the deficit immediately, cap future spending and pass a strong Balanced Budget Amendment. Thanks to your efforts, the House of Representatives PASSED the Cut, Cap, Balance Act by a bipartisan vote of 234-190!
Now this critical legislation will be voted on in the Senate this Saturday, and while Democrats may control the chamber—we have the momentum. Tell your Senators to vote YES!
President Obama talks a big game about debt reduction, but has no plan. The Democrats claim to have a budget, but introduce nothing. And rather than “cut, cap, and balance”, establishment Republicans like Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell want to “cut, run and hide.” Americans deserve better.
McConnell’s plan would give Obama the authority to raise the debt ceiling, while letting his Republican Senate colleagues avoid having to vote in favor of the increase itself. That’s just spineless. The other plan is a tax-raising scheme being secretly negotiated by six Senators known as the “Gang of Six”.
The Tea Party movement is different. No backroom deals and no compromising our principles for political gain. We support the Cut, Cap, Balance Act as the only real and responsible solution to the fiscal crisis facing our country. But if we are going to turn this momentum into a win in the Senate, the CCB Act needs your support too. Support it NOW!
