Key Spending Vote Today: Call Now [out of date]
Update: this vote has taken place.
We’ve gained momentum since yesterday. Washington is getting your message: stop the slipshod approach to runaway spending.
Now is the time to push your Representative to oppose another three week spending bill. Call now: 202-224-3121.

Here’s our argument (what to say on the phone):
- Oppose a three week CR;
- It’s time for a serious, long-term approach to spending cuts;
- Support a long-term bill that enacts the important policy riders from HR 1, such as, defunding Obamacare, denying federal funding to Planned Parenthood and blocking the EPA’s dangerous global warming regulations;
- It is irresponsible to fund defense two or three weeks at a time because procurement schedules slip, inflating the costs; and,
- Don’t give in to the liberal’s blur-the-lines strategy.
Above all, we are urging fiscal responsibility: serious, long-term spending cuts. Call the Capitol switchboard to speak to your Representative’s office now: 202-224-3121. The more constituents who call, the more Representatives will realize a strategy of short-term extensions does not make sense.
