Yesterday we asked you to call Representative Paul Ryan to say thank you for standing firm and supporting the strong Balanced Budget Amendment (BBA).1
Take Action Now!
We asked you to call Speaker Boehner, Majority Leader Eric Cantor, and Rep. Kevin McCarthy to tell them to bring the strong BBA to the floor because we heard they were getting squishy and might bring the weak BBA up for a vote instead.
***Due to the debt ceiling deal, Congress is now required by law to bring a BBA to the floor for a vote. The “weak” version will result in tax increases. The “strong” version offers much stronger protection against tax increases. Our Local Coordinators voted 70%-30% to push for the strong BBA over the weak BBA – but NOT as a TPP endorsement of a BBA in general. Rather, this is an attempt to push House leadership to make a more principled decision since they are bringing a BBA to the floor one way or another.***
Today we are asking you to melt the phone lines in response to a report that tax increases arevery much on the table for the Super Committee, which would be the final blow to this flailing and fragile economy.2, 3
“With current levels of taxation already limiting economic growth, we believe that marginal rates must be maintained or lowered and that repeal of any tax credit or deduction be offset with an equal or greater tax cut.” --- RSC letter
ACTION Call your own Representative4 and ask them to make a commitment to you that they will advocate against and vote NO on any plan that increases taxes. We need less spending and increased economic growth, not more taxes.
NOTE: If you haven’t yet made the calls listed in the action alert from yesterday, please take a look and do so today if you have time.
Thank you for everything you do in this fight for our country, our freedom, and our liberty.
