Key Spending Vote Today: Call Now [out of date]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.

Read more to see the talking points for your call and leave a comment to tell us how your call went.

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.

After you call, report your results by leaving a comment below.

    • Spoke with Paul Ryan’s staff about taking a stand, that they are reading the public’s mood wrong, we want them to defund Obama Care, defund NPR, planned parenthood, all of them. And stop the continuing resolutions and shut down the government. I told him our fears, we the Tea Party’s, that if they don’t do this now when they have the chance, we will form a third party, then they really loose. The staff member was very nice, said that she understood and will report everything to Rep. Ryan.

      • We need to let the fear-mongering scoundrels understand that we are deeply serious. If they continue to pussy-foot around BOBO, then they will suffer with him.

    • I called all the republican congressmen in OH and told them the time to fight is NOW! Defund Obamocare or shut the government DOWN!

    • They aren’t doing anything because they are part of the problem. We need to get the “establishment” out of the Congress…and we need to start a “Bucket Brigade” to clean up the White House.

    • I spoke with Cong. Wolf’s office (R-10-Va.) this morning (3-15-11) – requesting NO vote on CR and positive support for HR-1. Pointed out we had voted for a Republican/conservative House and needed to see that success actually made a difference. Now is the time to take on the liberals in the Senate.

    • I left a call for Congressman Coffman with a young staffer. Tried to stress that long term planning on cutting the budget is necessary, It is also important to defund Obamacare and Planned Parenthood. I also said that our military needs to be able to plan for longer than three weeks at a time! Congressman Coffman has been really good about voting to cut the budget so far so I urged him to continue to do so!

    • The response from the staffer to congressman Dold was a standard pablum reply to the effect that he was against Obamacare, etc., but there was a refusal and multiple excuses offered as to the response that he would make to the CR, tomorrow. I made it quite clear to her that his vote would determine my vote in the next election cycle.

    • I called Boehner’s office and told them that we
      as the people that got them elected expect them
      to adhere to our conservative and fiscal ideals.
      I also said that we can just as easily vote them
      out and as we voted them in.
      If they purport to be the “new conservative party”
      then they should act like it. They should
      absolutely do away with the CR’s. They should
      only be doing one thing: get rid of Obamacare.
      The 1.5B that was inserted into the healthcare
      bill is enough for them to reject that whole
      healthcare procedure. We will settle for nothing
      less and neither should they. I even went so
      far as to tell them let them “shut down the
      government” as this would be the best thing
      since essentials such as medicare,medicaid
      and the military wouldn’t be afffected. I hope
      they heard me.

  9. Talked with Congressman Carter’s staff (TX-31) and his position is that he opposes a government shutdown even if it means passing continuing resolutions. They cite military members not receiving paychecks as the primary reason. Fort Hood is a part of the 31st district of Texas.

  11. Hello,

    I called Congresswoman Cathy McMorris Rodger’s office in Washington D.C. and spoke to one of her staff members.

      The latest budget skirmish is expected to play out Tuesday when House members vote on a short-term measure to keep the government running for three weeks and cut $6 billion in spending – on top of $4 billion in cuts that lawmakers have already enacted.

      Some House Republicans, impatient for deeper cuts, oppose the resolution. But Hayworth said she’ll support it because the Democratic-controlled Senate is likely to approve it.

      “We need to send the Senate a bill that we reasonably believe they can pass,” she said.

      =====

      Well, Michael… sorry to break the news to you.

      Worse yet, prior to stumbling upon this article I had called Nan’s Washington office to inquire into whether she had decided how she was going to vote.

      I was told by Caitlin (???) that negotiations were “fluid” and asked my opinion. I gave it and was promised it would be passed on.

      Now here’s the question… was Caitlin deliberately misleading me… allowing me to retain the impression that Nan hadn’t already decided to vote with Boehner and the Dems?

      I don’t have an answer… but the fact that it’s even a question should worry all Hayworth supporters.

      “We need to send the Senate a bill that we reasonably believe they can pass,” she said.

      Well, Michael… sorry to break the news to you.

      Worse yet, prior to stumbling upon this article I had called Nan’s Washington office to inquire into whether she had decided how she was going to vote.

      I was told by Caitlin (???) that negotiations were “fluid” and asked my opinion. I gave it and was promised it would be passed on.

      Now here’s the question… was Caitlin deliberately misleading me… allowing me to retain the impression that Nan hadn’t already decided to vote with Boehner and the Dems?

      I don’t have an answer… but the fact that it’s even a question should worry all Hayworth supporters.

  83. Called McCarthy’s office and Boehner’s office they didn’t seem to get the message to defund Obamacare and to vote against the CR

    • I get the feeling that those tears Boehner shed were because he was so overwhelmed to be at the helm of the House. I don’t think he has thought about whose money they are throwing at things since he became a House member. I don’t trust anyone who’s been there for over 6 years.

  85. Talked with Rep Cory Gardner’s aide. He was very receptive. He said he had the talking points in front of him so I didn’t have to repeat them. He also said they were getting a lot of calls about this.

  87. I left a message for Boehner’s office, sent email and called my Congressmans office and went by his local office and visited with them. I am passionate that Obamacare funding be taken out of the CR and Planned Parenthood defunded and the EPA restricted. I am going to be hugely disappointed in this vote, I am afraid. I had so much hope for Boehner and am now very concerned that is is business as usual.

  89. I called Raul Labrador’s office and spoke to his aide. I asked that he vote no against the 3-week continuing resolution based on lack of riders to defund Obamacare and Planned Parenthood, and the EPA regulations. The aide indicated his decision had not been made and that he’d pass on my comments.

  91. I called Cong. Pence’s office and spoke with a nice sounding and capable young man. I expressed my gratitude for the Congressman’s opposition to today’s CR. He has or will oppose it. I added my revulsion that the previous Congress had apparently allocate $15 billion to the obamacare legislation and did so in such a way that no one understood that a positive vote contained this outrageous appropriation. Nothing in the history of our Federal Government has ever sickened and outraged me as much as this theft. Through Pelosi’s underhanded tactics, $105 billion was spent without anyone knowing. This is simple theft and should be dealt with that way.

    I would urge that NO further appropriations be made until that $105 billion is made null and void.

  93. Left a message for Sessions. Texas, and they would not say that they would vote against funding the government for another 3 weeks. They did say that he’s voting to defund BOBO care. I told them that if they don’t stop this farce that they will all go down…and I’m mad as hell that they are still pussy-footing around BOBO.I said that it has nothing to do with racism…it has to do with our face in the world and our citizens providing mismanaged funds. I told them that they are not using “THEIR” money that it’s mine!!!! And I’m furious that they are milking me and all Americans dry.

  95. Called Joe Wilson and spoke to an aid.
    Told him to stop worrying about a budget we haven’t had one for 2 yrs. I said focus on 1 item ,De-fund Oboma care today/this week, then the nation will know the Republicans are True to what they promised . Then next week defund NPR/ Planned Aparenthood and eat the elephant 1 bite at a time

    • We need them to start drilling all over the place and start up the coal mines!!! That’s the other IMPORTANT MESSAGE we need to get their attention about.

    8% continue present spending level
    73% refuse to pass another CR and risk gov shutdown
    19% pass another CR
    I know this is not scientific, and I am in a conservative district, but Tom seemed impressed. I think he’s got the message.

He has the people behind him and a lot of conservative congressmen that want to stop Obamacare as they promised.

    “WE WON” last November. Tell the Democrats exactly that.

    There will be no more dictating from the losers.

I told them to vote against a short term continuing resolution, any resolution containing the $105.5 billion in appropriations for Obamacare, and to vote against raising the debt ceiling. I hope they listen, but I’m not optimistic.

At Boehner and Cantor’s office the aids were rude and. uninterested. One hung up on me. I was polite, but made my opinions known to them. I don’t have much hope the leadership will vote “NO.” I am very disappointed in them all. I feel that my Congressman, who ran on this very thing, just may not vote “NO.” I worked very hard on his behalf to get him elected. However, I will continue to keep the pressure on and see how it all turns out.
    Isn’t is amazing that Congress is not included in Obama Care. The Unions got a waiver. Businesses close to this Administration got waivers. Now if this health care act was so great, why would all this people want to opt out? It is quite apparent we all get the short end of the stick each and every time.

Staffer said that Price is prepared to vote no on the next vote scheduled for April 8th. Price is for stopping the funding of Obama Care and EPA’s programs which are attempting to force Global Warming Regs on us.

    Talked to a staffer for Senator Chambliss (Georgia) who stated that Chambliss is working with a bi partisan group to resolve the budget issues. Our information is that that group is considering tax increases in specific areas in addition to spending cuts. I voiced my opposition to any tax increases and stated our strong preference for spending cuts as the solution.

  145. Join the TEA PARTY fighting the illegal immigration and migrant invasion

    This is what the American people are up against from unconcerned legislators, which have been greedily indoctrinated with money for campaign contributions. Financial favors to keep the conveyor belt of illegal discount labor settling here. Not the fact that there are over 9 million Americans searching for jobs, but 8.5 million illegal aliens are employed by dirty employers. I don’t hesitate to say be a Whistle Blower and inform on companies, where labor there is suspiciously talking in foreign languages other than English. Although California is—THE—prime example, no State within the union is immune.

    Just in the city of Los Angeles, Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich has just released data from the Department of Public Social Services which shows that in November 2010, $53 million in welfare benefits to foreign nationals. (Another $22 million dollars in CalWORKs and $31 million in Food Stamps) issued to illegal aliens for their instant U.S.-born children in Los Angeles County. I am beginning to wonder who our government has been working for. So this testimony amount is an increase of almost $3 million from November 2009, and represents 22 percent of all CalWORKs and Food Stamp issuance’s in L.A. County. SO QUESTION HOW MUCH IS THE ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION COSTING YOUR STATE?

    America is losing its mind, when we cannot even support US born Americans or those who came to the US legally and have lost their job. We have our own people to care for, not the rest of the world. Every year my taxes go up in small increments and must be stupid if we don’t realize we are subsidizing large and small businesses. Later–Supervisor Antonovich told reporters: “When you add this to $550 million for public safety and nearly $500 million for health care, the total cost for illegal immigrants to county taxpayers exceeds $1.6 billion dollars a year — not including the hundreds of millions of dollars for education.” In 2003, the American Southwest saw 77 hospitals enter bankruptcy due to unpaid medical bills incurred by illegal aliens. An astounding 84 hospitals in California had been forced to close their doors because of the growing calamity. Similar occurrence took place in Arizona, because of the influx into this border State.

    Hospitals which manage to remain open then passed the due amounts of money onto the rest of us, which translates into more out-of-pocket expenses and higher insurance premiums for all citizens and legal residents. I know for a fact that Contractor and those who sub-contract are using huge amounts of illegal labor, so noticeably they get the better of honest business owners. My cousin in Los Angeles hired a contractor to install a new Air Conditioner in the roof space. My cousin noticed neither laborer word spoke a word of English, so he confronted the Contractor for proof that these people were legal. The supervisor did have all the necessary insurance, but could not prove these workers were here legally. My cousin paid the man for the work done; later to find out half the duct work was not fitted properly. So this is what Citizens and residents are continuously fighting against–improper labor. Most of the duct work had to be re-installed, which ended up costing more money.

    My choice was to join the local TEA Party as they are not part of either the Liberal-tax and spend-Democrats or the well entrenched Republican leadership. They are oriented towards saying no to any type of Amnesty passing, secret or otherwise, including Comprehensive Immigration Reform, The dream Act, visa lotteries or anything else that smells of amnesty, including chain migration and Sanctuary Cities or States. Bringing in highly skilled workers is a necessary evil, as they will be invaluable to America’s future economy. But we must impose zero-tolerance on economical labor, which is stealing the bread from the lowest income, blue collar and in many instances white collar in the labor market. Guest workers are not welcome, until the fraud and corruption is removed from this type of temporary employment. Without many exception, the taxpayers is the ceaseless beneficiary to dishonest business owners on a grand scale, as the taxpayer subsidizing the schooling for the children, health care for all family members and a wide array of other entitlement programs.

    We must demand that E-Verify, 287 G. police training, Secure Communities criminal fingerprinting imposed throughout America, with dire criminal penalties on business that hire foreign labor. Unions are a major problem when it comes to hiring illegal labor, with SEIU Union boss Paul Trumka holding the steering wheel. The unions have seen a fall off in membership, so they are trying to pick up the slack with foreign nationals. Any company that knowingly hires foreign nationals (cannot be any doubt, when it’s over ten people with no papers) the CEO and head executives should go to prison, not pawns such as a human resources manager. It seems to me the sentences are not enough or the prison terms? When you have numbers ranging from a hundred to over three hundred foreign labor that is working, the company president should be seeing at least five years and fines over $250.000 dollars upwards.

    What I am noticing more and more are patriotic workers finding the courage and initiatives to contact ICE agents. Corruption will never cease in Washington, until we introduce taxpayer election money only, as in European countries and limiting election cycles to three months. In addition to safeguard our votes we must make the federal government act, to rewrite election laws. We are being confronted by hundreds of thousands, may be millions of foreign national changing the outcome of elections through voter fraud. The administration MUST mandate that all voters must appear before an election officer with a legal Social Security Card, a valid driver’s license and/or an American Birth certificate that can be validated. Absentee ballots are the easiest form for illegal aliens to use fraudulently.

    Investigate more true facts at NumbersUSA and not only fax federal and State lawmakers, but fax them for free on this site. To turn America around we must exert our own power against such ideologies as being “politically Correct” This country has worked just fine for over two and a half centuries, without being torn apart by Leftist dogma. We don’t need any foreign country or anyone else telling us how to run our country, especially the open border harbingers of overpopulation. If you come to America, it’s not by the invite of the US Government or any specific politicians; it’s by the permission of the American people only.

Later–Supervisor Antonovich told reporters: “When you add this to $550 million for public safety and nearly $500 million for health care, the total cost for illegal immigrants to county taxpayers exceeds $1.6 billion dollars a year — not including the hundreds of millions of dollars for education.” In 2003, the American Southwest saw 77 hospitals enter bankruptcy due to unpaid medical bills incurred by illegal aliens. An astounding 84 hospitals in California had been forced to close their doors because of the growing calamity. Similar occurrence took place in Arizona, because of the influx into this border State.

    Hospitals which manage to remain open then passed the due amounts of money onto the rest of us, which translates into more out-of-pocket expenses and higher insurance premiums for all citizens and legal residents. I know for a fact that Contractor and those who sub-contract are using huge amounts of illegal labor, so noticeably they get the better of honest business owners. My cousin in Los Angeles hired a contractor to install a new Air Conditioner in the roof space. My cousin noticed neither laborer word spoke a word of English, so he confronted the Contractor for proof that these people were legal. The supervisor did have all the necessary insurance, but could not prove these workers were here legally. My cousin paid the man for the work done; later to find out half the duct work was not fitted properly. So this is what Citizens and residents are continuously fighting against–improper labor. Most of the duct work had to be re-installed, which ended up costing more money.

    My choice was to join the local TEA Party as they are not part of either the Liberal-tax and spend-Democrats or the well entrenched Republican leadership. They are oriented towards saying no to any type of Amnesty passing, secret or otherwise, including Comprehensive Immigration Reform, The dream Act, visa lotteries or anything else that smells of amnesty, including chain migration and Sanctuary Cities or States. Bringing in highly skilled workers is a necessary evil, as they will be invaluable to America’s future economy. But we must impose zero-tolerance on economical labor, which is stealing the bread from the lowest income, blue collar and in many instances white collar in the labor market. Guest workers are not welcome, until the fraud and corruption is removed from this type of temporary employment. Without many exception, the taxpayers is the ceaseless beneficiary to dishonest business owners on a grand scale, as the taxpayer subsidizing the schooling for the children, health care for all family members and a wide array of other entitlement programs.

    We must demand that E-Verify, 287 G. police training, Secure Communities criminal fingerprinting imposed throughout America, with dire criminal penalties on business that hire foreign labor. Unions are a major problem when it comes to hiring illegal labor, with SEIU Union boss Paul Trumka holding the steering wheel. The unions have seen a fall off in membership, so they are trying to pick up the slack with foreign nationals. Any company that knowingly hires foreign nationals (cannot be any doubt, when it’s over ten people with no papers) the CEO and head executives should go to prison, not pawns such as a human resources manager. It seems to me the sentences are not enough or the prison terms? When you have numbers ranging from a hundred to over three hundred foreign labor that is working, the company president should be seeing at least five years and fines over $250.000 dollars upwards.

    What I am noticing more and more are patriotic workers finding the courage and initiatives to contact ICE agents. Corruption will never cease in Washington, until we introduce taxpayer election money only, as in European countries and limiting election cycles to three months. In addition to safeguard our votes we must make the federal government act, to rewrite election laws. We are being confronted by hundreds of thousands, may be millions of foreign national changing the outcome of elections through voter fraud. The administration MUST mandate that all voters must appear before an election officer with a legal Social Security Card, a valid driver’s license and/or an American Birth certificate that can be validated. Absentee ballots are the easiest form for illegal aliens to use fraudulently.

To turn America around we must exert our own power against such ideologies as being “politically Correct” This country has worked just fine for over two and a half centuries, without being torn apart by Leftist dogma. We don’t need any foreign country or anyone else telling us how to run our country, especially the open border harbingers of overpopulation. If you come to America, it’s not by the invite of the US Government or any specific politicians; it’s by the permission of the American people only.

  149. I contacted Speaker Boehner. He knows NOT to push the CR. We are both from Ohio, he and I, and we are graduates of the same University. He knows that too, and he had better stick to our old principles. Right now, he is wavering, and that’s NOT good.

  151. My district congressman is Joe Donally a Dem and alleged Blue Dog who voted for Obamacare.I was only able to speak with a polite, seemingly attentive staffer promising to relay my request and since they seldom ask, I’ve made it a habit to give my name and address and ask for a response.

    I blended Heritage talking points in my request for the congressman stop voting for CR( kicking the can further down the road) and begin truly addressing our fiscal mess by supporting a bill with the real significant policy riders of HR1.

    The staffer indicated at least the congressman indicated thus far he would not support funding of planned parenthood.

    I’ll continue calls of this type with our Congressman and both Senators for as long as it takes
