Do NOT Increase the Debt Ceiling
Cut = Yes
Cap = Yes
Balance = Yes
Increase Debt Ceiling = NO!
The supporters and local coordinators of Tea Party Patriots met for over 3 hours on Sunday evening evaluating the Cut, Cap, and Balance Act and whether or not we should change our position on no debt increase. After examining all possible angles we decided to remain firm and continue to say no debt increase.
While we are in support of cutting spending now, capping the percentage of government spending as it relates to the gross domestic product, and balancing the budget, we do not support those items in exchange for a debt ceiling increase. America cannot afford to continue to spend more money than it brings in. America cannot afford to borrow 44 cents of every dollar it spends.
Be prepared for the liberal ruling elite in Congress and the White House to up their attacks. They will say we are unreasonable, we do not understand the reality, and we are stubborn in our position. We expect the attacks and will continue to stand firm in the face of them.
National Coordinators Diana Reimer and Jenny Beth Martin are headed to DC. As they learn more about any potential deal, dates set for votes, and other information you might find useful, they will work with the TPP support to update Tea Party Patriots across the country with the latest information. Watch for updates on the TPP and Bayshore's Facebook pages, and more importantly watch for questions so that we can gather your input. The national Tea Party Patriots coordinators (Diana Reimer and Jenny Beth Martin) will continue to accurately reflect our desires to those who ask on Capitol Hill.
Together we will stand firm against a debt ceiling increase, and in support of our core values. Together we will return this country to citizen-driven government.
Enough is enough.
America deserves better.
Thanks for your continued support!!
