Budget Crisis – Talkling Points

Last November, we worked hard to show Washington that we demand fiscal responsibility.  Now it is time to hold Congress’s feet to the fire and demand they fulfill their responsibility to cut the bloated Federal budget.

The $100 billion promised by Republicans is only 6.7% of the projected budget deficit this year.  Cutting $100 billion from this year’s budget is simply a step in the right direction toward restoring fiscal discipline to Washington.

But even this small step towards fiscal sanity is proving difficult for Washington. Those who want to do the right thing need to hear your support; those who want to keep spending our nation into oblivion need to hear your concern.

BUDGET TALKING POINTS

For Republicans:

·         Stick to the $100 billion in cuts for 2011 that you pledged. That’s why we elected you.

·         Make sure our soldiers are not held hostage by the inaction of the Congress and the White House. In the event that the government shuts down, they deserve to be paid. If not, then their Commander in Chief and all members of Congress should go without pay as well.

·         We elected you to stop the out of control spending in Washington. $100 billion dollars for 2011 must be just the start: you must insist on real and serious reform to the entire federal budget going forward.

·         Please stand firm. The future of America depends on you and we will support you as long as you are willing to stand for America’s future.

For Democrats:

·         Cutting spending is not extreme: spending trillions that we do not have is extreme.

·         $100 billion from a $4 trillion budget is fiscal responsibility, not radical action.

·         We cannot sustain the deficits that President Obama and your leaders have proposed. We must make cuts now, while we can do so in the least painful and most fair and humane ways possible. If we wait; if you “kick the can” down the road again, the cuts will still come, but they will happen in a true crisis and will be far worse for our nation.

·         Your leadership is focused on who to blame if the government shuts down. As your constituent, I am asking you to focus on the real issue and work with your Republican colleagues to cut spending.

·         Make sure our soldiers are not held hostage by the inaction of the Congress and the White House. In the event that the government shuts down, they deserve to be paid. If not, then their Commander in Chief and all members of Congress should go without pay as well.

HOSTAGE CRISIS! 

What President Obama is really saying:

“Pay the ransom (allow us to continue massive government spending) or we stop paying the military!”

“Pay the ransom (allow us to continue massive government spending) or we won’t mail you your IRS refund check!”

“Pay the ransom (allow us to continue massive government spending) or we will ruin the tourists’ vacations who are going to DC for the Cherry Blossom Festival!”

“Pay the ransom (allow us to continue massive government spending) or we will close the National Parks and ruin family vacations!”

Should we give in to their ransom demands?

Should we reward them for making this kind of threat?

Should people like this be in charge of our entire country?!!

President Obama and Senator Reid continue to damage America with every move they make.

Tea Party Patriots is committed to holding them accountable and making sure American voters know the truth.
