Call Your Representatives
Say "NO" to Obama
It's all over the news! America will run out of money if the debt ceiling isn't raised by August 2. We'll default on our financial obligations! Our credit rating will be lowered! According to Obama, if he doesn't get his way it will be "Armageddon." I personally am fed up with his fear tactics, threatening the elderly with their Social Security payments and our military with their pay. I think if he didn't pay these obligations first, it would be political suicide.
The latest threat is that if the debt ceiling isn't raised that 1/3 of the government will shut down. Wow! It's like a dream come true! 1/3 of the government? It's a start. I guess they haven't heard, we are in favor of smaller government.
I don't know about you but I'm fed up with the bully tactics. Obama has poked me in the chest one too many times and now I'm pushing back and I would encourage you to do the same. Call your Representatives and tell them to stand firm against Obama. NO compromise!
Our compromise was Cut, Cap and Balance! I say it was our compromise because it did allow a raise in the debt limit. So, like my daughter told me when she was in kindergarten about the lunch lady who told her she had two options in regard to lunch, "take it or leave it," I say we send the same message to Washington. Cut, Cap and Balance WAS our compromise... take it or leave it!
MoveOn.org and other progressive organizations are sending people to Congressman's offices and they are flooding the phone lines in Washington. We don't want their voices to be heard while we do nothing. Many of us are fortunate to have conservative representatives that are on our side. My Congressman, John Sullivan has made a commitment to not voting for a debt ceiling increase but he still needs us to call his office so our voices are heard. YOUR Congressman needs to hear from YOU.
