Within the next several days Congress will be voting on whether or not to RAISE our legal national debt limit from the current 12.1 trillion dollars by ANOTHER 1.8 trillion!
They’re doing this because, by law, the government can’t borrow any more money to pay for inflated spending unless they first raise the limit.
And they want to raise it by 1.8 trillion so it will be “enough” to cover what they want to borrow and spend until after the 2010 elections. So they won't have to vote on it "again" - until after they ask you to vote for them next November.
They want to do it during the holidays when they think few people will be paying attention and hope that most people will forget about it by next year.
This comes at the end of a year of record, runaway federal spending on everything from the Iraq War, the Afghanistan War, corporate bailouts, bank bailouts, auto bailouts, and the Hal Rogers "earmarks”. Even the White House predicts our current Hal Rogers policies will leave us with $20 trillion in debt by the end of the next decade.
This madness has to stop. But we have to let Congress know we’re paying attention.
Contact your members of Congress and tell them to OPPOSE increasing our national debt limit.
(You can even send a personalized blast message to ALL Senators or House members, state delegations or all Republican or Democrats members as a group)
Don’t let them be able to claim that they never heard from you.
Tell them to “STOP the Spending”!
