YOU Stopped the Obama Tax & Borrow Bailout

YOU Stopped the Obama Tax & Borrow Bailout

Dear Virginia,

Do you remember where America was just one year ago? 

The Pelosi-Reid-Obama agenda was doing a daily dose of damage to our American economy, destroying jobs with crippling regulations, oppressive spending and brand new taxes.   

If that wasn't enough, the Democrats passed a government takeover of healthcare, spending record amounts of money we didn't have on a program we didn't want.

And to top it off, they raised taxes on hardworking taxpayers to pay for an $800 billion dollar stimulus - claiming that they should have spent even more.   

Maybe they thought they could get away with it.  For two years, they did.  

But on Election Day 2010, you stood up - millions strong - and said enough is enough.  

You - and millions of other Americans like you - held them accountable.  The Tea Party and millions of Conservatives led the charge from all 50 states right into the heart of Washington.  

You didn't just change the debate in Washington.  You changed the results .  Today's passage of the Budget Control Act shows the impact you've already had... and how important it is to keep the pressure on Washington for the next 15 months.

Without you, Nancy Pelosi would still be Speaker Pelosi.  She would have delivered President Obama exactly what he demanded: a blank check for unlimited spending, new taxes on American families, new regulations on job creators, and a debt ceiling increase with no strings attached.  

Make no mistake: President Obama wanted hardworking American taxpayers to bail him out once again.  He wanted YOU to pay for his failed stimulus and Obamacare, borrowing more money on your back to pay for them.  He wanted you to sacrifice so that Washington wouldn't have to.  

But because you kept the heat on Washington, Republicans in the House and Senate had the backup they needed to stand up and say NO to the Obama Tax & Borrow Bailout.  

While the Budget Control Act is far from perfect, it is a step forward.   The bottom line is that until we vote President Obama and his Democratic allies in the Senate out of power, we won't be able to truly change the culture in Washington and deliver the results Americans like you demand.

But think about how far we've come.  Rather than trampling on the taxpayers, as the Democrats did when they controlled the House, this bill showed real respect to hardworking taxpayers.  The legislation: 

  • Stopped ALL of the tax increases Obama, Reid, and Pelosi demanded;
  • Forced the Senate to pass its first budget in two years, delivering Harry Reid a dose of accountability;
  • Held every politician accountable to vote yes or no on a balanced budget amendment; and
  • Protected the economy while demonstrating a commitment to reducing the debt.

This isn't the end of bringing spending discipline to Washington.  It's just the beginning - and it wouldn't have happened without you.  

Just yesterday, Joe Biden called the Tea Party "terrorists."

So today, I am writing to thank you for being a patriot.  I have so much respect for you.  I respect the work you do day by day, year by year, to defend freedom and promote opportunity.  Your dedication to our cause is saving America.

Keep it up.  Don't quiet down.  Your voice cannot be ignored.  Demand more from Washington.  Demand more from those who represent you.  At the RNC, we hear you - and we want to amplify your voice in Washington.  

Over the next 15 months, all conservatives need to come together and focus on the only way to really fix what's wrong with Washington: voting Obama out of office and taking back the Senate.  We are ready for battle.  Are you?  

Usually this is the part where we ask for money.  Not today.  In the last 24 hours you have given America something much more important than a donation.  You have helped America take a step away from servitude and a step closer to freedom.  We are proud of you.  You are our heroes.  You are true patriots.

You are Great Americans.  

God bless you.
