Action Alert: Oppose the Continuing Resolution

The House is set to vote on a funding bill this week, probably tomorrow or Thursday. H.J.Res.79, the Continuing Appropriations Resolution, would fund the government through November 18, 2011 at an annual level of $24 billion above the House-passed Ryan budget.

Time for conservatives to take action by emailing their Members of Congress.

As we announced in our key vote yesterday, we support the House-passed budget, and spending levels above it represent a missed opportunity to rein in Washington’s reckless spending. Congress should be rejecting President Obama’s tax and spend vision for America.

>> Take action: email your Members of Congress with this message now.

Congress needs to hear from conservatives on this important issue: it’s time for spending cuts, not more of the same.

  1. Instead of increasing spending, this house must reduce all spending and make the 2012 budget not a balanced budget, but a truly reduced budget.

  3. why not roll back spending to 2010 levels. when they balk at that, roll back to 2009. and so and so on, until somebody takes it seriously.

  5. Screw the White House, balance the budget and cut spending! If that means cutting depts of the government and all the Nanny state programs do it. Start saving 320 Billion a year by putting the unemployed to work rounding up the illegals and shipping them out of the country.

  7. I’m afraid we’re all spitting into the wind but lets keep writing and calling our Congressmen and women to voice our opinion of the wasteful spending and constant debt increases. If we the People have to cut back and tighten our belts, then Mr. O and Congress needs to understand and do likewise!

  8. Cut, Cap, and Balance NOW!!! Obama did not use all the last stimulus money, No more stimulus money Obama just wants to destroy this Country.

  9. Stand firm with no additional spending. Make Obama use his veto pen (if the Democrats have the will to pass the bill) and thus show all of America what skunks these spenders are.

  10. I’m not an expert but I can see that our Society is at a crossroads. Especially here at home – and – around the world, we are living in a manner that is absolutely unsustainable. I am under the impression that if something is unsustainable it stops, quits. Then if our economy is unsustainable it’s going to stop, tank and that means, no food, no gas, no water, no electriciy, food riots etc. Hmmm what else, there is more but you understand. It would be called ECONOMIC COLLAPSE.

  11. Everybody knows that any organization the size of the Federal Government has at least enough room to cut 5% out of their budgets. How much does that reduce the budget? The bill is two sentences: Every department and agency budget associated with the Federal Government is reduced by 3% to 5%. The Defense budget is the only budget that will be reduced by 3%.

    Once we start there, we can start eliminating duplicate agencies and those that do nothing.

  12. Just Say NO! And cut the Spending. All progressives in congress are nothing but change the law, one law at a time socialist. That is what Hitler did with the help of his followers in the German government.
    Remember the frog. We are arguing about debt limit and we should be arguing about cutting. The government and the Media have defined the universe for us. Stop talking about their universe and talk about the needs of reality. Right? Do I here an amen?

  13. AMERICANS-WE MUST UNITE AND DEFEAT THIS INSANE OBAMA SLAVERY THAT WILL DESTROY US WHILE HE WALKS ON WITH THAT SCREWED ON BACKWARDS HEAD OF HIS. GEORGE WASHINGTON GAVE US THIS FREEDOM AT THE COST OF AMERICAN LIVES–WE ARENT GOING TO LET SOCIALIST OBAMA COME AND TAKE IT OFF US FOR IS ILL SCHEME.

  14. Obama and his cronies are trying to corner the GOP with B.S.. Speaker Boehner and the real conservatives and the rest if they want to stay in office need to hold strong. these dirt bags in the White House and the rest of most of the Dems. re in bed with the socialists.communists and can smell blood the end of the United States as we know/knew it. we have some courageous people in the GOP taking on the status quo. Lets keep making sure that we are behind them 100% to get this country back on solid ground and stop the insanity that has afflicted Washington for many years.

  15. If those jerks in D.C. really want to reduce spending don’t do it on the backs of the Military (Both Retired and Active Duty Personnel and their families) do it by balancing the budget and reducing their outlandish pay and retirement packages (Full pay with benefits for only serving 4 years). Also check out all departments and see if some of them are doing the same type of work that some other department is doing and then combined those.

  16. While I agree that there should not be another CR–shut the whole govt down as far as I’m concerned–it will pass. Eric Cantor has been making the rounds the past few weeks stating that the CR would “fund the government through the next few months, admitting that Congress will not be able to pass its annual funding bills before the fiscal year ends on Sept. 30.”

  17. There is no reason for the Federal government to need as much money as they are using. The only reason we are in trouble with Social Security is because of the amount of money syphoned off to pay for things that are beyond the original scope of this program. The same with Medicare, Medicaid, look at Highway taxes and see where there are really going some time. It does not make sense to pay for police with highway taxes, or bike lanes, or parks or any of the other things beyond the scope of the original program.

    The lists go on and on, the original programs were often okay or at least manageable, but then they have all become bloated and most of the monies are stolen out of the original programs to pay for all of the add ons. Add ons are something you do with your own car or home, not government programs!

    Most programs would go into the black tomorrow if the add ons were cut out! It is time to do that and then get an idea where we really are as a country. It would certainly reduce the spending and the size of the government!

    Just so you know, the same thing needs to be done with the agencies! They have bloated themselves into monsters, killing any hope of jobs or new industry in our country!!

  18. It is time this spending spree was cut off! Lets flood the Congress with phone calls and emails that we have had enough! It is time that our voices are heard and that we get this country back on its feet by getting rid of the regulations and bills that are killing the free market one bill/regulation at a time.
    LETS MAKE SURE THAT WE WIN THIS TIME!!!!!

  19. Are there people working in congress that are really retarded enough to think they can keep their jobs if they keep screwing us? Seems like there is.

  20. Did you like the first Revolution? Would you like another? Keep pushing the real Americans buttons, and you may get your wish! Stop blowing the American taxpayers money!

  21. Cut, cut, cut…starting IN the government…paid vacations, pensions (commensurate to time served) with no double- triple-dipping….pick ONE. The people have been robbed enough. Keep OUR money IN our country until such time as we’re solvent. Pay back the money all workers have paid into Social Security, which Johnson started robbing. SS is NOT an entitlement…we’ve paid, gov’t has robbed, including the interest SS would have made, which kept it solvent. Tax ALL workers, legal or not! If they make a paycheck, TAX them ALL. TERM LIMITS on everyone in gov’t, including DoJ. Politics is not a clean word, not an honor any longer because it’s a breeding ground for greed and hunger for power.

    Gentlemen, did it not occur to you that approving the tranportation bill behind our back would be discovered. It is time that the rebublicans stand for no more spending. Why, would you betray the voters.

  23. It is ridiculous how Obama and his Admin. is spending OUR money,I guess he thinks it is his OR he wants America to fail ,we Must reign in his spending! And why are we sending the Palistinians $500,0000 a year when they hate our guts?? If we had all the money we send these foreign banks to help them stay afloat we wouldnt have to worry ourselves about staying afloat! ! WE would be sitting pretty! Id rather put the money back into Soc.Sec. to replace what Congress robbed from us !!! OR help our needy people who cant find jobs because of this crappy economy he has created.CHARITY BEGINS AT HOME I WAS ALWAYS TAUGHT!!!!!

  25. If the House is to support the will of the people, especially those that put them there, they must hold the line on spending, and in fact must roll back spending. Hold the Obamination’ s feet to the fire . Every new expenature must be offset by at least equall reduction elsewhere! It has to start somewhere and we that to be NOW. Expose the folly of the current administrations outlandish spending and hold them accountable. Expose their Republican coconspirators and malke it a major campaign issue. I already refuse to give to the GOP because I want none of my funding supporting socialist Republicans. I support Conservatives by direct donation to the extent possible. Keep them honest from now on.

  26. There are a number of departments and agencies that can be eliminated which would also create savings – some examples: the Department of Education, the Department of Energy, the Environmental Protection Agency – and then eliminate the corporate tax since corporate taxes are actually paid by the end users (read that you and me). To really get things under control, either a flat tax or the FairTax.

  27. I am opposed to any kind of new spending by the government. One good way to cut government spending would be to get rid of all of the phony Czar’s that Obama has appointed along with any new federal position that was created under his administration. Also, in the past all First Ladies had only one assisstant except for Hilary Clinton who had three. Can someone tell me way our current First Lady needs 19 of them. I say, get rid of them. I thinks if our Congress really wants to cut Federal Spending, there are thousands of other bogis positions that can be eliminated. These two may be only a few dollars of savings however, they only represent the kind of attitude President Obama has toward Federal Spending. I am also sure that there is “back door monies” going to high level union officials so Obama can continue to by the “Union Vote” with taxpayers dollars. The best way would be to GET HIM THE H_ _ L out of office.

  28. The trouble is, Pauls1, Obama’s an Islamic bred socialist, bent on shoving socialism down America’s throat. He’s got nothing to loose by trying. When he gets kicked out of office, he can take his 90k retirement back to Kenya, where he was born, and live like a king.

  29. Stop The Spending and get rid of the progressives all together, both Dems and Repups. Go back to smaller Government and put Obama in Jail along with all his Cronies for high crimes agent society. Look at all the money they have gone throgh and then lets print more so the value also goes down. That’s the Crime. So I ask you how do you catch wild pigs? Awnser: Just like we been cought!

  30. For heaven sake please stand up and fight. This president is nothing but a muslim socialist. Stop being wimps. Don’t listen to the political strategist, we the people are sick of politics. Means what you say and say what you mean!!!! Quit being part of the problem and became part of the solution!!!

  31. It’s high time America’s standup and say enough is enough. If we love America we need to take it back and stop the nonsense fiscial spending our childrens and our futures away. Obama lied and doesnt love
    america or his people.

  32. The Congress could have been content with the customary 3% or so annual cost of living increase instead of the close to 48% increase they received in 2 years’ time. I wonder how many of Obama’s co-thieves were being paid off by that means while seniors such as I were having to suffer doing without ANY of that seriously needed annual cost-of-living increase to my Social Security check! Maybe if they used Title X funds for paying down the debt instead of killing babies they would have enough left from the taxpayers to continue funding the necessities. While they’re at it, they can get states to save funding by refusing to subsidize anymore bridges to nowhere and have the government procurement officers subsidize Walmart instead of wherever they’re buying the $200. toilet seats and $100. hammers. There are plenty of places that can be trimmed WITHOUT harming the vulnerable who barely make it from month to month on Social Security as it is!

  33. I went to congress.org to send an email on this. That website sends me updates and how my representatives vote. It also has a very easy way to contact federal and state officials. I oppose any CAR for any amount. The Senate can bring the budget up for a vote if they need money. Other wise, shut the place down and send everyone home.

  34. Before the remembrance of 9-11 I asked people to unite and go to Washington to lay it on the line that we the people were not going to take attacks on our country anymore.
    The citizen of this nation deserve better then this being attacked from Muslims in this country or Socialist Muslims within our government tearing down our monitory system.
    What better way could we have paid tribute to our Heroic first responders or to the innocent lives lost on 9-11 then to have taken back and freed our nation from the likes of Obama and his Marxist, Socialist cronies.
    Runaway spending isn’t just a one party fault it’s now all of them and we don’t have anyone else to blame but ourselves for letting them get so far out of control.
    Washington along with State government’s have increased in size and power only through our neglect to the point where they think we work for them and it’s high time we set these clowns strait as to who works for who.
    Under the Constitution we have the power to remove any and all that have not upheld the Constitution that they swore an oath to.
    My personal feelings is that we should be firing them all and that includes the Supreme Judges they implanted to do their bidding.

  35. I am getting tired of being sold a bill of nothing but retoric and bull crap everytime Obummer opens his mouth. He wouldn’t tell us the truth if he had to . I have signed this REPEAL IT NOW on this rediculous ObamacareI have signed this seven times and I don’t even know how many phone calls I made to each of my representitves offices telling them to repeal this piece of garbage and noyone listened.Their are all full of crap and they don’t care about us little people because we can’t line their pockets with cash. They only work for the big wigs that can make them rich. They don’t even care about what we say. I don.t know about anybody else but I am mad as hell and I have had enough of the lies.

  36. I say roll it all back! Roll it back to 2001 budget levels. Show the world markets we’re serious about our burdening debt and get rid of that damned unconstitutional Homeland Security gestapo and TSA 4th amendment unconstitutional sexual gropers and if Obummer doesn’t like it, defund the EPA job robbers and start going after the communist propagandist dept of education. AND THIS IS JUST ALL STARTERS OF WHAT’S WRONG IN THE LATE GREAT U.S. of A.

  37. Need I SUGGEST to members of Congress that spending cuts are necessary? Clearly, we are opposed to more of the same massive deficits. Is anyone listening?

  38. I WILL NOR BE A KENYA SLAVE TO THIS ILLEGAL KENYA DOPE HEAD THAT IS POSING AS A LEADER OF THIS COUNTRY .. THE GOP THAT NOW HAS CONTROL OF THE HOUSE MUST REMOVE THIS USLESS THING NOW …OR WE MUST REPLACE THEM TOO. TAKE YOUR PICK GOP ????

  39. WE THE PEOPLE HAVE THE OBLIGATION TO TAKE AND DEMAND THAT OUR GOV
    START NOW TO BE HONORABLE AND TRUE TO THEIR VOWS TO UP HOLD THE
    CONSTITUTION AND RUN THIS COUNTRY IN A HONEST AND FORTH RIGHT
    BUSINESS TO SPEND LESS AND BE AWARE THAT OUR GRAND KIDS ARE THE
    INHERITORS OR YOUR ACTIONS OF TODAY AND FUTURE BUSINESS.SHORT
    OF DISASTOR WE WILL FORCE THIS GROUP OF PRIVILAGED MEN AND WOMEN
    TO HEAL TO THE WILL OF THE PEOPLE. FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION

  40. This administration sees the tax-payer dollars as deposits in their personal bank accounts to be spent as they wish, not as funds to protect and defend the American people as a whole. If you think we are not listening and watching the waste of the American tax-payer’s money, you are wrong. If you think we’re afraid and will not speak up, you are wrong.
    We expect you to be the citizen’s first line of defense against this abuse of power by the White House and Cabinet members. Hold your ground. That is what we are paying you to do. Hold your ground – keep your job.

  41. America needs a balanced budget. We must stop the spending. Cut some of the programs that do nothing but encourage laziness. I’me tired of footing the bills for the lazy and for this president.I voted for the Republican party because we need to have our voices heard, Please take a firm stand against raising taxes and increased spending.

  42. You that we sent there in 2010 know better and we want you to stick to your guns.
    Every day we see this “yahoo” of a President wear his inexperience on his sleeve, just let him implode!

  43. When we Americans begin to use our brains to make things better by our word and actions and stop involving the Government in things we can ban together and do ourselves, the budget will of necessity be cut. There has always been too many who say, “Make it a law” and not ask themselves, “what can I do to make this country a better place to live?” If we won’t buy a product because it causes harm to the environment, it will not be manufactured. If we refuse to buy a product whose manufacturer promotes violence and smut on TV, that manufacturer will pull it’s ad off that show. It is a numbers game! We the people control what is thrown at us by our actions. When we refuse to push the job off onto the Government and “do it ourselves” we will not be taxed for it! Do it right, do it legally, but do it now!

  44. More taxes, more regulation, and more interference will NOT improve the economy or create more jobs. GOVERNMENT CAN NOT CREATE JOBS. Only by reducing regulations and allowing small business owners and corporations to opperate freely will bring more jobs back. The Obama administration has sent more jobs over seas by over taxation and regulation. WE DO NOT WANT OR NEED BIG GOVERNMENT TO RUN OUR LIVES.

  45. Obama doesn’t know who America is or who Americans are. He is a tax and spend socialist and refuses to see the mess Europe is in because of these practices. Federal government needs to be rolled back to constitutional limits. We need to get rid of all politicians who can’t make a living in the private sector starting with Obama

  46. I have watched all of the debates and I find, for the most part, media selective regarding fairness to the candidates. I believe that I one would look very closely into the qualifications of each of the GOP candidates for president, you will find many good and even some not so good things about them. Is not that true of all of us. However, I have done much research on all of them and without question, Newt Gingrich has more knowledge in any catagory you would want to discuss. I believe that he, like every candidate, has some skeletons in the closet however, it we want a president you can really bring Obama to his knees on any topic, Newt Gringrch is the only one who is capable of doing so. He is truely what America need if we want a better America. Go to his web site: http://www.Newt.org and listen to what he honestly has to say.
