Spending crisis

Are we about to watch as congress and the White House and the Democrat led Senate,

(Harry Reid) engage in activity that goes against the grain of what it means to be an American…

This if true is an amazing story about how the US senate is out of control of the ordinary American Citizen.

The following may not reflect the opinions of the site owner or administrator.

This was received in an email. Dear Patriot, There is a looming crisis in federal spending that has
been conveniently ignored by the mainstream media. Federal retirement benefits have soared for
civil servants and military personnel, but the government has not put a single dollar in reserve to
pay for the benefits! This is one more example of the irresponsible way Congress spends our tax
dollars.

By law, private retirement plans are required to be pre-funded. Meanwhile the Federal
government does not hold itself to the same standard, kicking the metaphorical can down
the road by offering retirement benefits without creating a retirement account to pay the bills.

Private pension plans hold over $2.3 trillion in stocks, bonds and other assets, and even state
and local governments hold over $3 trillion in reserves to pay retirement benefits as they should.
Last year the federal government paid a record $268 billion in retirement benefits out of general
fund revenues. All total, the unfunded liability for federal and military retirement benefits stands
at $5.7 trillion, which is dangerously close to the unfunded mandate of social security which has
an expected shortfall of $6.5 trillion. By abdicating their responsibility to assure the long term
health of our economy, Congress chooses to kick the can down the road a little further each year,
leaving us at a point where there is no more road to kick down.

The problem is not the government
employees who were promised a retirement plan when they were hired. For many, retirement
benefits were the deciding factor between a private sector career and choosing the security of
a government pension program. My issue is with elected leaders who use money that should
fund retirement benefits for government workers on pet projects and pork-barrel spending
instead.

It is not a matter of stripping promised retirement benefits from retired federal workers,
just as we have no desire to take away Social Security benefits from those who depend on
them. The answer lies in significant reduction of the federal government by returning to
Constitutional limits on federal power. Power must be returned to the states, ending the
Big Brother mentality pervasive in Washington DC. We don’t need a Washington bureaucrat
deciding what’s best for our communities, and it’s clear we also cannot afford it.

Our movement must stay vigilant and organized as we roar from the rooftops to stop the
financial insanity running rampant in the halls of government before it is too late.

Maxine Waters?

So this is the hope and the change that we voted for?

If it is not then where is that leader?

I am sad to say that I did vote for hope and change, but not the hope and change of only 10 percent of the American people, the other 90 percent of the American people for some reason seem to have a very different idea of what constitutes hope and change, but you know what this is not hope and this is not change this is hate.

Is Maxine Waters, a nice person?

Would you want someone like this speaking for you?

Does hate, make it ok?

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

Dear Patriot,

On Friday, Rep. Maxine Waters (D – Los Angeles) continued the left’s assault on the Tea Party by saying that we can “go straight to hell.” While this is certainly an egregious escalation of the left’s attempts to silence us, the Tea Party must continue to focus on activism. The more the left can get us to remove our focus from the issues that matter, the more they’ll be able to get away with!

This is why our grassroots efforts are more important now than ever! In the last week, we’ve sent over 62,000 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!

This is an area where we can make a HUGE difference. We’ve sent over 850,000 letters to Congress on various issues, and Congress has taken notice. Activism is at the core of the Tea Party movement, and you can take just a few moments to make an impact. We cannot let the left’s attacks deter us from taking our country back!

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 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.”

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!

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.”

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.”

Unconstitutional

How often in the last three years have we seen what amounts to criminal behavior in Washington go without any action or even a report by the liberally biased, media? (allegedly)

Amazing stuff folks, yes, it is not the accepted method of handling Americas business, the problem is that no where in the constitution, does it say lets get a gang of members together to administrate financial matters.  Until we get back to the basics of what this nation was founded upon it will be very difficult to manage this nation.

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

Dear Patriot,

It’s no surprise that the newly formed “Super Committee” in Congress, tasked with finding $1.5 trillion in spending cuts, is going to consider passing new stimulus spending.
 
We know that these politicians can’t be trusted when it comes to taxpayer money. They are more concerned with advancing their own careers and representing special interests than they are in serving “We the People!”
 
Thankfully, there are a handful of patriots left in Congress, and there is one plan that will provide results, balance the budget, and cut up Congress’s credit card. Rep. Connie Mack (R-FL) has introduced the “One Percent Spending Reduction Act of 2011.”
 
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!

Ballance the check book

Harry reid allegedly is not going to do the right thing for the American people.

At a time that is critical in this nations history, we have liberals that do not care how much alleged damage they do to the economy.

House Republicans’ ‘cut, cap and balance’ deficit reduction bill, has not been allowed an up or down vote, the liberal senate leader Harry reid is allegedly deaf to the American people, and has refused to hear from the very people who are America.

Cut Cap and Balance, is the only effective way forward, watch the stock market to see what happens next, it is harry reid who is responsible for what happens in the stock market today.

Get the deficit under control – urge ‘Yes’ vote on ‘Cut, Cap and Balance!’

July 18, 2011

Dear Concerned Citizen, many of you may be democrats, and many of you may be republicians, but this is something that all Americans must get behind because the future depends upon us and we must stand and vote in this election year, but before that.

The U.S. Senate will soon vote on a bill that could at last get America back on a path to fiscal sanity.

The “Cut, Cap and Balance Act” (HR 2560) will require the following:

• Cut: Discretionary and mandatory spending reductions that would cut the deficit in half next year

• Cap: Statutory, enforceable caps to align federal spending with average revenues at 18% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP), with automatic spending reductions if the caps are breached

• Balance: Balanced Budget Amendment (BBA) with strong protections against federal tax increases and a Spending Limitation Amendment (SLA) that aligns spending with average revenues as described above

Under HR 2560, the BBA would have to pass both houses of Congress and be sent to the states for ratification before any increase in the debt ceiling would be considered.

It’s time to get our financial house in order before it’s too late. “Cut, Cap and Balance” is a place to start.

TAKE ACTION

Contact your Senators today and urge them to vote “Yes”on “Cut, Cap and Balance!”

If you were to write bad checks you would go to jail, is it not time for washington to get control over the check book?

Cut Cap Ballance…

Can it be done, or is it just a dream that politicians might one day stand

up like men instead of weeping and crying like children.

Cut, Cap, and Balance

103 House Republicans sent a letter to House Republican leadership calling for a solution that could resolve the current debt limit impasse and prevent the bigger, Greece-like debt crisis just over the horizon: Cut, Cap, and Balance.  

1.  Cut – We must make discretionary and mandatory spending reductions that would cut the deficit in half next year.

2.  Cap – We need statutory, enforceable caps to align federal spending with average revenues at 18% of Gross Domestic Product (GDP), with automatic spending reductions if the caps are breached.

3.  Balance – We must send to the states a Balanced Budget Amendment (BBA) with strong protections against federal tax increases and a Spending Limitation Amendment (SLA) that aligns spending with average revenues as described above.

With each passing day our nation’s fiscal health gets worse, leaving our children and grandchildren falling further into debt. Democrats seem to have given up, proposing even more borrowing in response to our massive debt addiction. With the problem growing larger every day, we must move quickly and unite behind a plan to cut spending and get our budget into balance.

Debt crisis looms

This was just received in an email it is amazing Washington is preparing to do next.

Dear Patriot,
Please find a special message from our
paid sponsor, Independent Living.

Sponsorships like this help us preserve liberty and freedom in the United States of America. We appreciate your support.
Thank you,
TheTeaParty.net

Dear Fellow Taxpayer:
Time is short, and I need your help.
The new Republican leadership in on the verge of approving FULL FUNDING AUTHORITY for the Obama Administration’s insidious – yet resoundingly rejected – agenda for America.
Your action is needed at once.
You and I can – in fact, MUST – send the GOP leadership an unmistakable message right now, BEFORE the disease of Republican compromise infects Washington once again.
If Republicans cave in and join with the Democrats to raise America’s debt ceiling above the already staggering current limit of $14.3 trillion, Obamacare will be funded, the bailouts will continue, and out-of-control federal bureaucrats will stay fat and happy – feasting on another wave of taxpayer money while our nation’s economy continues to sink.
That’s why I need your help today – RIGHT NOW! – in telling the Republican leadership:
NO NEW DEBT FOR THE OBAMA AGENDA!!
It’s vital you fill out your petition below to Speaker John Boehner and other Republican leaders and submit it without delay. Please do so at once… because Boehner and others are about to sell us out on this bellwether fiscal issue, only months after the momentous election.
Let me explain.
As we have reported on fully in my financial and self-reliance advisory Independent Living, the Federal Reserve is already printing some $75 billion every month to service massive federal budget deficits and allow the federal establishment’s unchecked expansion to continue.
This massive subsidy to rampant federal spending was never voted upon by Congress or the American people – at least $600 billion in new money is being printed and given to the insolvent federal government – completely beyond the control of democratic processes that define a free America and further destroying the value of every dollar you earn, spend, save, or invest.
The only way to put a stop to this insanity is for Congress to REFUSE to raise the debt limit. A congressional vote is scheduled in just a few days, which is why you must…
Send Your Petition To Oppose
More Government Borrowing NOW!
Responsible Members of Congress who say they plan to vote “NO” on increasing the government’s reckless plan of borrowing more money are being derided by big-spenders and other statists as “The Shutdown Caucus” (a reference to the possibility that parts of the federal government could be shut down if the Treasury isn’t given even more credit).
Let’s flood the Republican House and Senate leadership with a sea of grassroots petitions bearing the unmistakable message: STOP digging the debt hole deeper!
Our national debt is already 90% of gross domestic product (GDP). By increasing the debt to 100% or more, America could join the ranks of banana republics which have destroyed their currencies and plunged their economies into chaos.
Make your voice heard now – tell the GOP leadership to do the right thing and vote to cut the national credit card in half – “Step One” to restraining our out-of-control federal government.
No more federal debt on the backs of our children and grandchildren!
It’s urgent you sign your petition right now – and help send a message loud and clear.
Yours in Freedom and Prosperity,

Lee Bellinger, Publisher
Independent Living
P.S. Help me send the message to the incoming Republican leadership, before the Republican disease of compromise infects Washington once again:
NO NEW DEBT FOR THE OBAMA AGENDA!
Sign and submit your petition NOW!
