Cut up Congress' credit card

From Campaign For Liberty:

I'm not going to beat around the bush.

I'm counting on your IMMEDIATE action to help turn up the heat on Congress to stop America's soaring national debt.

Not thirty years from now. Not twenty. Not ten.

But NOW.

You see, outgoing speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have cut a dirty "deal" with President Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid to increase domestic and defense spending by $80 billion dollars!

On top of that, this deal "suspends" the debt limit until March 2017, gifting the Big Spenders in DC an unlimited increase to Congress' credit card through the 2016 election.

And what's worse, Boehner's doing this for his heir apparent, Paul Ryan, who's desperately hoping this deal passes.

"I didn't want [Paul Ryan] to walk into a dirty barn of you know what," Boehner quipped. "I've done my best to try to clean it up."

A "clean up" requiring a spending increase of nearly $100 billion and a suspension of the debt limit represents everything wrong with Washington, D.C.

While Paul Ryan has publically claimed he had nothing to do with this deal, at least one member of Congress has suggested Ryan was in cahoots with leadership!

If you and I don't turn up the heat on your representative and senators right now, I'm afraid the Obama-Ryan-Boehner regime will get the last laugh.

And with the vote on this massive spending increase scheduled in the House for tomorrow, its critical you act right away.

The good news is DC-based press are reporting that House leadership might not have the votes to pass it.

Meaning if you and I really put pressure on the House we could kill this dirty deal once and for all.

So please sign your "Cut Congress' Credit Card" Fax Petition IMMEDIATELY!

As you'll see, your petition urges your representative and senators to REJECT Congress' dirty deal with President Obama and work to balance the federal budget immediately.

. . . Not to make half-hearted promises of future cuts or fiscal responsibility . . .

. . . Not promote a plan based on another smoky backroom deal.

I mean cutting up our federal government's credit cards and finally forcing Congress to live within its means.

That's why it's vital you sign your "Cut Congress' Credit Card" Fax Petition right away!

The same people expected to vote for this MASSIVE increase in spending are the same hacks voting for Paul Ryan as Speaker.

If you and I don't send a clear message to Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell and their lackeys to restore fiscal sanity, you and I can expect the same old routine through 2017.

In 2015, our federal government brought in record revenue. $3.2 TRILLION in fact.

$3.2 TRILLION was $300 billion more than the amount of our entire federal budget as recently as 2008!

Returning to 2008's spending levels would hardly be a radical change.

But it would force President Obama and members of Congress to end the spending spree that has left our country nearly $19 TRILLION in debt.

So please sign your "Cut Congress' Credit Card" Fax Petition IMMEDIATELY!

Hardworking families all across the country understand they have to live within their means.

They understand allowing credit card debt to build up month after month is a recipe for disaster.

It's NO different for our federal government.

I know President Obama, Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan and the big spenders in Congress will tell you they can't be forced to live within their means.

They'll tell you not a dime of federal spending can be cut.

"The cupboard is bare!" as Nancy Pelosi famously exclaimed.

But just in the past year, you and I have learned:

*** $380,000 thousand to study the "freshman 15";

*** $100,000 for a flower show in Philadelphia;

*** $350,000 to study athletes in the zone;

*** $50,000 for the jazz group Soul Rebels to travel to Istanbul, Turkey for a jazz festival;

*** The Veteran's Administration spent $8 million on solar panels that were never turned on;

*** $350,000 for an Afghanistan cricket league;

*** $104 million for low-income housing subsidies on people who do not qualify as low income;

I could go on and on.

If we don't start cutting out this waste, what kind of future will we be leaving to our kids and grandkids?

One saddled with debt? Void of the freedom and opportunity that should be their birthright as American citizens?

All Congress has to do to finally balance our federal budget is . . .

NOTHING.

If your representative and senators just don't vote to suspend the debt limit, Congress can only spend what it takes in.

Will you help Campaign for Liberty turn up the heat on Congress to stop them from suspending the debt limit and increasing spending RIGHT NOW ?

I'm counting on you. After all, you and I are going up against the Obama administration's propaganda machine.

In 2013, the Obama administration resorted to throwing up barricades to prevent our heroic World War II veterans from visiting a memorial built to honor their blood and sacrifice!

And after that, President Obama sent seven security guards to the World War II memorial to keep our veterans out - two more than were present in Benghazi.

They're going to use the same kind of shenanigans again to try to trick the American people into thinking the world will collapse if even a single cent of federal spending is cut.

And they will no doubt be assisted by Boehner, Ryan, and other so-called "conservatives" who are eager to cut a deal putting spending on autopilot for two years.

But your help can make sure it won't work.

So won't you please sign your "Cut Congress' Credit Card" Fax Petition right away to cut up government's credit card?

And if you can,please agree to your most generous contribution of $40 at once!
Every dollar you give will help Campaign for Liberty reach more Americans about this critical fight.

Of course, if $40 is too much, please agree to $20 or at least $10 at once.

But your action today is critical because, the truth is, the big spenders in Congress - sadly many in BOTH parties - don't want to be forced to cut spending.

They'll resort to virtually anything to keep spending like there's no tomorrow.
Cutting up Congress' credit cards only means a balanced budget.

Not a government shutdown. Not a federal default on our debt. Not Social Security and Medicare being cut off. Not missed paychecks for our men and women in uniform .

Our government can still keep spending $3.2 TRILLION a year.

Seven years ago, it would have been more than enough to pay for the entire federal budget.

Those were hardly lean times for government by any means.

$3.2 TRILLION is enough "revenue" for Washington, D.C.

And $19 TRILLION is more than enough debt for you and me.

If you agree, please sign your "Cut Congress' Credit Cards" Fax Petition immediately.

And, if you can, please make your most generous contribution of $40 , $20 , or at least $10 TODAY!

In Liberty,

Ron Paul
Chairman

As you'll see, your petition urges your representative and senators to REJECT Congress' dirty deal with President Obama and work to balance our federal budget immediately.

If Congress doesn't increase the debt limit, it will simply force Congress to live within its means.

But since you and I are going up against the Obama administration's propaganda machine, I must ask for your most generous contribution of $40 , $20 or at least $10 IMMEDIATELY.
