Action Alert: Tell Congress Not to Blink on Spending Cuts [out of date]

On Wednesday, nearly two weeks after the House passed a measure to fund the government and cut $61 billion in spending, the President signed a short-term measure that keeps the government running for two weeks. While cutting $4 billion in spending, the measure allows the President and Senate Democrats to delay substantive action until March 18th.

Instead of acting on HR 1, the liberal strategy is to showcase some token cuts, hoping Americans will forget about the need to make serious cuts in federal spending.

They’re fundamentally not serious. Americans are demanding substantive spending cuts: tell Congress not to blink.

It is time for the President and Senate Democrats to stop passing the buck and embrace the entire House-passed bill (H.R. 1). Among other things, H.R.1 cuts $61 billion in spending and defunds Obamacare. Both of these issues were front and center in the 2010 elections – there is a clear mandate from the American people.

>> Tell your Members of Congress to act on the House bill.

If the President and Senate Democrats really want to fund the government, cut spending, and avoid a shutdown, they must listen to the American people and start with H.R.1.

The time to act is now:

Please email your Senators and urge action on HR1.

Email your Congressman and tell them not to blink.

  1. I want you and the rest of the senate to quit stalling and act now on H.R. 1 Do what is good for the United States. Quit spending

  3. H.R. 1 should be 100% passed by the Senate! The American people want all the substantial cuts that are needed and required to try and help America get out of this horrible debt Obama has put our country in!

  5. We need to keep on cutting these programs especially the duplicate and triplicate programs that do the same things. Cut Cut and more Cut. I am so disgusted by the democrats because they believe they are above the law. We need to clean up our House and take our dear country back. The Dems do not believe in our constitution!!! We cannot allow them to continue to do this. Obama should have been impeached a long time ago because he truly does not care for the country’s welfare and he is stopping growth and deregulation as much as he can. Please people wake up because Obama is destroying our country. We also need to rid the House of the Czars because deep down they are all Socialists and Communists!!!!

    • Diana, In addition to my previous comment, I am concerned that we are, daily, dumbing down our young people in America, as well as brain washing them. There are way too many who think and feel that what this man plans to do with this nation is perfectly good and acceptable. He reaaly does not love America, but he is playing the politically necessary roles, and speaking the politically correct speech, in order to keep those who already live on the “Democrat Plantation”, there – fat, happy, well-fed, clothed and housed. Your job, and mine, is to alert as many patriots(thats a dirty word anymore)as we can to what is happening before our very eyes. Think about this – this man is supported by the Liberal Media, every union in the country, and every international union, the NEA, most of the Hispanic community and most of Hollywood. Oh, I almost forgot – the Muslim communities. We must garner the support of every person in this country who truly loves it, and is ready and willing to talk and walk the walk.

  7. It is time to stand up to our fiscal problems before we are any deeper in this unsustainable debt. To the Senate and House, this is your job. Cut spending now. There are plenty of government departments to GUT; Dept of Education, the over regulating EPA, the completely failed Dept of Energy to name a few. Do your job.

  9. It is quite apparent that the Senate has not gotten the message yet, from the people. Those that want to play politics with the Peoples money will not be in office in 2012.

And the other gives the people of Kentucky a bad name, if this is there BEST, they need to quit being politicians and become Very Concerned Leaders elected representatives of the people of the USA.

  13. H.R. 1 is a directive from the majority to stop the spending. It’s still not enough and blocking this is unacceptable. Do your job, cut the spending and keep your hands out of my pocket. ENOUGH!

You libs who think you are above the law and sit on your fat money spending ways while gouging the American people, who you are SUPPOSED to represent….. not for your expense accounts and perks of lobbyists you sell us out to. Your job is to work for the People. “We need to clean up our House and take our dear country back.”

  17. When will “Our Represenatives” ?, finally get it. Our country is going broke, we are facing bankruptcy! Do we wait to do something until we are in the same position as Greece? Who will bail us out, certainly not China? Congress needs to cut duplicate programs, stop catering to the special interests, including Unions who do not represent the people any longer but their own self interests, and operate with a BALANCED BUDGET! To get our fiscal house in order it’s going to hurt everyone, but we have to do it or our children and grandchildren will have no chance at the “American Dream”. The pain now will give everyone a chance at a future!

  27. Dear Socialist Democrats:

    Because you are not Americans, you have no right to spend one more dollar. I want the budget lowered to the 2008 level immediately. If you aren’t listening to me I will take at least one of your jobs away from you? Why are you hear against MY country. Do you need this job or are you already Socialist on the dole for the Marxist Bastard Obama? I call for Obama’s impeachment through Congress, and for the recall of all those politicians who voted for Obamacare. We all know now that Obamacare calls for a Doctors prescription to buy anything like even Aspirins from a drugstore. Why did you hide 105 Billion in the Obamacare law to fund the law. Its because you are corrupt criminals equal to Obama, Reid, and Pelosi. You hid the money because you knew once the bill was read it would cause this uproar! Recall these three first.

  29. Treat the US funds as you would at home. If you were deep in debt. And your spending was more than your incomeou wouldn’t keep spending.You wouldn’t borrow money to give to some one in another town. (foreign aid) for example.

  31. We must ignore biased public opinion polls and the unions which exist to advance the socialist Democratic agenda. Socialism has inflicted more damage on the human race than any movement in history. Time to stop it dead.

  41. Cuts are needed, in every state, and the cuts I see needed is. People are given money to be housed, and off the streets. by city or by federal vouchers, where most veterans will not live, because they are not allowed thier gun and or dog unless they are blind. So much for federal housing.FULL OF STRANGERS FROM OTHER COUNTRIES., NOT AMERICANS., AND WHERE NO AMERICAN OUT OF PRISON IS ALLOWED TO GO EVEN THOUGH HES A VERY QUIT MAN , WHO WENT IN SAY FOR STEALING MONEY FROM HIS LAW FIRM. AND AMERICAN TAXPAYERS PAY FOR THOSE PEOPLE FROM AWAY TO STAY HERE. THEY GET PAID TO STAY HERE. SO AGAIN SO MCUH FOR THE FEDERAL SHACKS THEY BUILT. And to top it all off, every person who gets into housing, have to have a couselor, and /or a babysitter, called a case worker. The case worker works with the dept of mental health, and the police dept too. but the case worker never tells the problem to the chief, so that a seriois matter could be resulved. So police are running to up to 6000 silly little calls per month, and the m h caseworker, is runnigna round doing dilly things too. All that costs money. Get back our mills, shoe shops, and give people work, and let them babysit themselves. Once they are housed they do not need a state or city caseworker. The only one needed is in the food stamp office, who doesn’t run to the apt or home of the person, needing food. It s all NANNY STATE/CITY, AND IT COSTS TAX PAYERS HUGE DOLLARS .BECAUE THOSE CASE WORKERS WOULD BE GONE IN A FLASH IF THERE WERE ANY JOBS TO GET IN A MILL OR SHOE FACTORY. CUT THE COST OF ALL THAT NANNY STUFF. NATIONALY.

  47. It should be clear to all the Tax Payers now that the Entitlements that should be cut is Government, not the Veterans Benefits that Veterans have earned and Social Security that Working People have paid for. Until the American People vote these Liberal Republican and Democrats out this will continue.

  49. It’s way past time to get both state and federal governments to get back to the basics: defense and infrastructure. Beyond all of that, the private sector can and will pick-up the slack and do a MUCH better job than government ever could. When government tries to take over the responsibilities of the citizenry, we ALL lose.
