one trillion in new taxes?

Amazing is all I can say, we have the Senate attempting to originate spending bills when the constitution plainly states, that,

All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but ….. and Expenditures of all public Money shall be published

Senate passes budget with $1 trillion tax hike

By David Lawder, Reuters

WASHINGTON — The Senate on Saturday narrowly passed its first federal budget in four years, a move that will usher in a relative lull in Washington’s fiscal wars until an anticipated summer showdown over raising the debt ceiling.

What is this?

Next year, is 2014 the most important election cycle will take place and it is something that you cannot sit out.

We have an illegal action, the Senate is trying to do the job of congress and the media say not a word about it.

This is a horrible thing and you should understand that until we send a message to the Senate that the People will not stand for ignorance and stupidity.

McCain Betrayed us?

Did John McCain end up doing the wrong thing at the wrong time, and did the media have everything to do with why we are in this mess now?

 

John McCain, has been up in the Senate allegedly for far too long and he does not represent the values that America was born with, the actions of our Fathers, who took courage and fortitude and made the ultimate sacrifice, that we might be free, perhaps the time that Senator McCain spent in captivity changed him in ways that no one can truly understand unless they were treated in the same way but he was not the only prisoner of war, he did made it out.

Many others did not, the truth is that to call the American people Hobbits, is a betrayal of conscious and it is a shame on those that have sacrificed everything in service for their nation.

 Amazing stuff folks, it is really like watching a horror movie on TV only its real.

Dear Patriot,
 
With political games being played with the debt ceiling and the federal budget, it’s refreshing for us to see great patriots like Sen. Rand Paul and Sen. Mike Lee speak the truth. These Senators, who were elected on a wave of tea party support last year, are standing up to the dinosaurs in the Senate left over from the Bush administration. These dinosaurs, like Mitch McConnell, Lindsey Graham, and Orrin Hatch, were leading the GOP when it lost its way, running up massive debt while Republicans controlled all three branches of government!

Now these dinosaurs want to force through a sham of a debt ceiling deal, and the freshmen Senators Rand Paul and Mike Lee are telling them, “Not so fast.” They’ve introduced their own version of Cut-Cap-Balance, a bill that will actually cut trillions of dollars in spending, rather than just purport to do so. The bill will also send a balanced budget amendment to the states as a condition of raising the debt ceiling. Speaker Boehner’s plan, in contrast, merely requires a vote on the amendment.

Western Representation PAC is particularly proud of our support for Rand Paul in 2008. We need more Senators like Rand Paul and Mike Lee, and we are looking ahead to 2012 to see where we can make an impact. The electoral map is ripe for tea party candidates, and we will be active in states like Utah, Texas, Montana, and Nebraska. We’re going to continue to support candidates like Rand Paul and Mike Lee, and you can support our efforts to retake the Senate for Conservatives by making a donation –HERE–

It’s not enough for the GOP to take control of the Senate, but Conservatives need to take control of the GOP. With your donation, you can help us nominate more great patriots like Rand Paul and Mike Lee.

Angry Democrats?

Is this the hope and the Change that you hoped you would see when you voted in 2008?

Amazing stuff folks, when you see how angry these liberals are you have to wonder about how they can still be in office, because we have real problems, and the people are not the problem, you know what the problem is, it is the politicians.

Published in an email, (may not necessarily be the opinion of the administrator or owners of this website.)

Washington’s liberal class decided to follow up Rep. Maxine Waters’ (D-CA) “the Tea Party can go straight to hell” attack with another shot across the bow of the Tea Party movement. Yesterday, Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) told her constituents to remember that “the real enemy is the Tea Party!” We’ve seen an increase not only in the intensity of the rhetoric against the Tea Party, but also in frequency. And this can only mean one thing: they’re scared!

With our state-of-the-art petition software, we’ve shown Congress a level of grassroots activism that they’ve never seen before. We’ve sent almost 900,000 letters to our elected representatives, calling them to action on issues from the debt ceiling to a balanced budget amendment, and that has the establishment shaking in their proverbial boots!

As we continue to focus on activism, we’re fast approaching 100,000 letters to Congress urging support for Rep. Connie Mack’s (R-FL) “One Percent Spending Reduction Act.” This bill, H.R. 1848, will cut 1% of the federal budget each year for the next six years. By 2018, it will install a cap on federal spending, limiting it to just 18% of GDP. By 2019, the federal government will have a balanced budget and a spending cap. This bill accomplishes exactly what the establishment fears: it cuts up their credit card and forces them to live within their means!

We have an opportunity to restore fiscal sanity to Washington, and when we flood Congress with letters, the politicians start to wake up. You can use our petition system to contact your elected representatives and tell them to put America on the path to a balanced budget by supporting Connie Mack’s “One Percent Spending Reduction Act.”

We cover the costs of using the petition system, and a contribution is not required to participate, but your generous donations allow us to continue to offer this service free-of-charge to all Americans!

Tea party mania?

The news is clear, the media does not like the tea party, in fact they hate it, why is that because the Tea party is made up of Americans, real people that work real jobs and have real families, that go to school and go to college and vote in elections.

They do not go to protests and bang on drums or chant violent slogans…

Received in an Email, (may not be the opinion of the administrator or owners of this website)

Politicians in Washington don’t know what to do with themselves. They’ve never seen anything like the level of activism we’ve shown them in recent weeks! We’ve sent almost 900,000 letters to elected representatives in Washington on issues ranging from the debt ceiling to spending cuts to the postal reform act, and we’re going to keep turning up the pressure!

The challenges we face are tough, and it’s going to take a concerted effort to win the difficult policy battles ahead. But, as Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) said in a speech at the Reagan Library Tuesday, these challenges give us a tremendous opportunity. “What we have before us is a golden opportunity afforded to few Americans,” Rubio said. “We have the opportunity within our lifetime to actually craft a proper role for government in our nation.”

One of the challenges we face is our deficit spending. Politicians in Washington have run up the credit card bill so high that it seems like we might never get out from underneath it! That’s why we’ve sent over 86,000 letters to Congress urging them to support Rep. Connie Mack’s (R-FL) “One Percent Spending Reduction Act.” This bill, H.R. 1848, will cut 1% of the federal budget each year for the next six years. By 2018, it will install a cap on federal spending, limiting it to just 18% of GDP. By 2019, the federal government will have a balanced budget and a spending cap. We will have cut up Washington’s credit card and forced them to live within their means!

We have an opportunity to bring America back to prosperity and economic recovery. When we flood Congress with letters, the politicians, who are used to ignoring the will of “We the People,” begin to wake up! You can help seize the opportunity to restore fiscal sanity in Washington by using our state-of-the-art petition system to contact your elected representatives and tell them to put America on the path to a balanced budget by supporting Connie Mack’s “One Percent Spending Reduction Act.”

Can we really raise taxes?
or is the president right should we have more taxes so we can spend more money on stimulus and wall street bailouts?

The following was received in an email and may not represent or reflect the opinions of the owners of this website.

Patriot,

Massive tax hikes will not turn our economy around, create jobs, or improve our national credit rating.

The Tea Party Movement succeeded in forcing Congress to consider tax cuts before raising the debt ceiling, and now we are fighting to make sure President Obama can’t use the so-called “Super committee” as Trojan horse for raising your taxes.

If he succeeds, Obama and Reid will have ended the best shot we have ever had at reversing Washington’s disastrous spending binge. He will go into the 2012 elections as a hero to his liberal and socialist base. We cannot allow that to happen!

We at Tea Party Patriots refuse to let the “super committee” focus on anything other than cutting the size of our bloated federal government and balancing the budget.

This group of 12 Senators and Congressmen hold incredible power over the economic welfare of countless special interests- so you can be sure they are going to be the target of unprecedented lobbying and piles of campaign contributions over the next few months!

(…not from hard-working, tax-paying Americans like you and me, but from unions and special interests who don’t care to see a more fiscally responsible government! Indeed some of the Democrats on the panel are already fund raising based on their appointments.)

Now we are gearing up for round 2, and we need you. To counter the relentless pressure of the media, special interests, and the status quo in Washington is going to take everything we have. We need your help! This is going to be an epic battle, and your $25, $50 or more today can make a huge difference.

This is exactly the kind of battle Tea Party Patriots was born to fight. Please join us today. Your donation today will make a huge difference!

Is it too late?

Would it have mattered if the Senate had passed, the right bill for the American people?

Could the Senate pass Cut cap and balance and reverse this madness that we find ourselves in now?

 Are we about to see history repeat and is this our Great Depression?

This just in, received in an Email today, (may not reflect the opinions of the owners of this website.)

Dear Patriot, Hold on it’s about to be a bumpy ride. S&P has downgraded the United States AAA credit rating and the economy is volatile. It is clear that the projected federal deficit over the next ten years brings into question the long-term stability of the American economy.

Washington missed the opportunity to address their spending addiction during the debt ceiling debate. They provided even further evidence that under the current system they are incapable of the solemn responsibility that the American people have granted them. Only one plan was presented during the entire debt ceiling debate that would have preserved America’s credit rating.

It was Cut, Cap, and Balance which passed the Republican/Tea Party controlled House of Representatives and was immediately tabled by the dinosaurs and Democrats in the Senate. The only way that we can avoid finding ourselves in this situation in perpetuity, is to amend the Constitution to require the federal government balance their budget. Click here to to demand a balanced budget! When the government failed to address the sub-prime mortgage crisis by addressing the incompetence and corruption within Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the American people suffered when the value of their homes plummeted.

When the government granted exceptions to certain banks to behave as speculators in critical commodity markets, the American people suffered from higher gas prices. Now, Washington is unable to address long-term spending and it is ‘We The People’ who continue to suffer from their inability to lead. This cannot be about maintaining the pressure we have already put on Congress. If we are going to pass a balanced budget amendment, we need to dramatically increase that pressure!

Already we have sent more than 65,000 letters to Washington demanding that they pass a balanced budget amendment. If you will take just a few moments to participate we can get that number well past 100,000 today! Our system makes it quick and easy to participate, and the best part is that there is NO requirement to donate in order to MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD!

Tea Party

Is the Tea Party, good bad or ugly, you decide, it looks more and more like the tea party may be you and your neighbor, and small town America, Small farming communities, small places all over this nation. You might be surprised just who is a Tea Party supporter.

 Received in an email, (not necessarily the opinions or thought or other disclaimers, of the owners of this website.)

Dear Patriot,

After the members of TheTeaParty.net made 400,000+ contacts with their elected representatives in Washington DC a deal was reached on the debt ceiling that failed to meet our simple message: don’t raise the debt ceiling without addressing the underlying spending problem!  This deal on the debt ceiling does not significantly improve our long-term financial outlook and falls well short of what we had asked for.  

Sponsor

It is clear that our government has missed yet another opportunity to make the difficult and painful cuts necessary to preserve American exceptionalism.

 Many have criticized Speaker Boehner for not getting the most desirable deal, but the real fault lies with his colleagues in the Senate, on both sides of the aisle, who worked to minimize his leverage at every point.

We have received overwhelming correspondence from many of our membership praising Speaker Boehner for much of what he was able to accomplish on behalf of the Tea Party movement.  By passing Cut, Cap, and Balance and fighting to win concessions from the Senate and President Obama, he has shown the kind of principled leadership that has long been missing from Washington.

The political reality that the Tea Party butted up against, is that absent a deal to raise the debt ceiling, President Obama and his many allies in the media would have blamed every single negative event between now and the election on the failure of Speaker Boehner and the Tea Party to make a deal.  Every bad economic report, every lossed job, every storm, injury, and spilled cup of coffee in the country would have been turned into another attack on Tea Party inflexibility.

After nearly three years, Obama owns this economy. Had Republicans failed to make a deal, it would have given President Obama the out he needed to strengthen his position in 2012.

 It should be noted that the Tea Party Caucus in the House voted 32 – 28 in favor of the deal negotiated by Speaker Boehner.  This deal is a sign of failed leadership, but that failure does not fall on Speaker Boehner and the House Republicans.

A clear distinction has been made between how we will govern and how our opposition will govern.  They oppose a balanced budget and they support tax hikes.  When we win the White house and the Senate in 2012 we will pass Cut, Cap, and Balance and eliminate the national debt.

This was but one skirmish in a long war between conflicting ideologies, and we won.  There will be more fights soon including a debate over the next continuing resolution in September.  Get ready because after this victory we are going to extract bigger cuts and better policy from the advocates of big government.

Thank you,

Stand firm, so say we all…

Why should we remain true to the passions and the sacrifice of our fathers and
those that came before?

 

Received an email (may not be the opinion of the owners of this website) (it may be too but hey thats what it is all about right)

This may be one of the most important issues facing America for the last 50 years and for sure when it comes time to vote we better show up at the polls, take the day off from work do what ever you have to do to make sure that we all vote.

Today, Obama is telling liberals to be prepared because he has no choice but to get the debt ceiling raised.  Obama reached out to his base with a townhall in Maryland and on NPR to let them know that the unwavering Republicans have left him little choice.  The Senate may have narrowly defeated Cut, Cap and Balance but after the President’s remarks today, it seems that we are on the verge of winning major concessions on spending without having to give on tax increases.  Our collective vigilance is the only reason that the Republican Congress has not caved.  They have heard our voice but we cannot let up now!

Together, we have contacted Congress more than 100,000 times through letters and emails demanding that they do not raise the debt ceiling without addressing the underlying spending problem.

Today, it is more important than ever to make sure that they hear from you again!  We made an incredible investment to make it quick, easy, and free to contact your elected representatives in Washington.  You are NOT required to make a contribution in order to use the petition software, but a generous contribution will allow us to provide this service to other like-minded Americans.

Debt ceiling madness

It may seem hard to understand or even to believe.
However we are facing a real crisis and this one has been coming for a long long time.

Received in an email,
(not necessarily the opinion of the owners of this website)

Debt limit: More of the same?

Tell Washington NO!
Sign the petition: Any proposal must cut spending now and fix the budget process.

Dear Fellow Conservative,

Since the Spring, Washington has been abuzz with debt limit deadlines and rumored deals. But instead of actually solving our spending-induced debt crisis, Washington is delivering more of the same: secretive deals, gimmicks, and tax increases.

Do you want more of the same?

No! Cut spending now and fix the budget process.

Our children and grandchildren deserve a real proposal that cuts spending to squarely address our enormous debt.

Tell Washington: no more business as usual.

Are you with us? Sign the petition.

US credit rating

If someone were intentionally trying to destroy the credit rating of the US government, then would that not be an act of treason?

Would it not be a severe issue that needed to be solved?

The US credit rating could be downgraded on Monday or later in the week amid speculation that Washington does not know what it is doing, and should that not be the case?  If anyone even a country keeps borrowing money without paying it back and then later printing money and not paying the money back, and later lowering interests and not paying the money back eventually the end result is financial ruin.

Any economist will tell you that this is the truth yet, for some unknown reason Washington does not or refuses to know this truth, and what can we expect if this is the way that they intend to do business?

The only way out of this mess, is two things.

Flat tax, ballanced budget, equals, another four years, for the democrats, if they keep on doing what they are doing now then the republicians wil win and the democrats will be run out of town on a rail.

So here is the deal, if we raise the debt limit, (print more money) then our credit rating will go down.

If we dont raise the debt limit our credit goes down.

If we lower our costs and set a flat tax our credit rating goes up.

It really is just that simple.

Most Americans understand this and most economists also understand this so why does the white house not understand this?

Received in an email, from Michele Bachmann

As the debate over the debt ceiling gains heat and President Obama stands firmly atop his bully pulpit, his stubborn insistence on drowning our nation in debt has caught the attention of the American people.

A new Gallup poll released this week shows him losing by eight points to a Republican, a larger margin than ever before.

With only one out of five supporting raising the debt ceiling, the American people know what should be common-sense to Congress and the President–when you’re in a hole, the first step to getting out is to stop digging.

To the majority of Americans that do not support it, raising the debt ceiling means much more than just continuing to dig.

It means placing trillions more in unfunded liabilities on the shoulders of future generations. It means abandoning the very principles that we in Congress were elected to represent.

In my three terms in Congress, I have never voted to raise the debt ceiling, and I will certainly not start now.

Yesterday, at a press conference, President Obama ignored these vital points, stating that we only need “minor adjustments” to fix our economy. At a time of trillion-and-a-half-dollar annual deficits and 9.2 percent unemployment, he could not be more out of touch.

Constitutional conservatives know that, in order for our nation to truly prosper, we need systemic reform–not band-aids. This reflects a core difference of philosophy that will be at the forefront of the 2012 elections.

The consistency and dedication that our movement has shown to stopping the hemmoraging of our future reflects the stakes that face our nation in 2012. The Obama machine will spend record dollars to overcome the opposition of the American people to his policies and win re-election, and we must work harder than ever to ensure that our constitutional conservative values are victorious. In this challenge, I couldn’t be more grateful that you are with me. Michele Bachmann
