Republicans promised in their Pledge To America: "With common-sense exceptions for seniors, veterans, and our troops, we will roll back government spending to pre-stimulus, pre-bailout levels, saving us at least $100 billion in the first year alone and putting us on a path to begin paying down the debt, balancing the budget, and ending the spending spree in that threatens our children's future."
Americans returned Republicans to power in the House for two main purposes:
1. Repeal and/or defund ObamaCare
2. Drastically reduce spending
Boehner and the GOP didn't cut $100 billion as promised. In fact, they ended up increasing spending in some areas. And they certainly didn't push very hard to defund Obamacare.
The American people expect results, not excuses. The tea party movement fought tooth and nail to defeat ObamaCare, even though we knew it was an uphill battle. We expect the Republican leaders in Washington to fight just as hard and to keep their promises!
And we expect it NOW.
Soon, the House will decide whether or not to increase the debt limit. Americans have spoken soundly, and a large majority oppose any increase in a limit that has been increased 10 times in 11 years!
When all of the real debt is added together, America's debt is closer to $130 trillion. So... should we raise the debt ceiling further?
Speaker Boehner has already indicated that he's willing to raise the debt limit for a certain price... Is he not listening to the American people?
Speaker Boehner, who's team are you on?
If you believe the Republicans have not lived up to their promises and oppose any increase in the debt limit, please let Speaker Boehner and your Republican representative hear from you today. Common sense Americans must let their elected officials know in very clear terms that we expect results and not excuses.
We expect the Republicans to live up to their Pledge To America and we oppose an increase to debt limit.
