how about stopping billions being funneled to ACORN.
200 million for the update of the national mall
we need to have a system on here where we get alert e-mails on a day targeting certain senators and when we receive those e-mails we bombard them.
40 calls to the local senator isn’t going to do much but if 400 off here did it and then this was timed with all conservative talk show hosts then those senators would have to take notice.
We don’t even have to target just republicans we can target red dog Dems and Dems coming up to re-election.
Jim , Moderators is this possible to set up and would other be willing to sign up up for these e-mails alerts?
WE NEED THE GOP SENATORS TO FILIBUSTER THE STIMULUS BILL.
Call all the GOP senators and ask them to filibuster the bill. Here is my message to them, please send a similar message and/or call them at 202-224-3121.
Republicans need to FILIBUSTER the big-Government boondoggle monstrosity the Democrats and Obama are planning. Any Republican who looks at this is appalled: - billions in wasteful Government spending that has nothing to do with growing the economy but is 100% about growing the Government at the expense of our fiscal security and private economy.
Without a principled conservative opposition to the already excessive liberalism of Obama and the Democrats, the Republicans will have no credibility in 2010. Now is the time to take a stand and filibuster this bad bill.
There are specific demands that must be made:
#1 - filibuster against any spending that occurs after this fiscal year, and insist spending be done later in appropriations for next year; 100% of spending should be focussed SOLELY on this year and out-year spending should be in followup appropriations as conditions warrant. Why tie the USA to trillion dollar debt now for spending that will occur well after the recession is over?
#2 - no spending unless all tax laws are extended until 2013; in short, by raising taxes in 2010, the Democrats are cutting the economy off at the knees; they are killing, not stimulating, the economy; filibuster any bill that does not include delaying the increase in taxes.
#3 - No money for ACORN, for Planned Parenthood, for general pet projects that simply add to Government spending; filibuster any bill that has offensive, wasteful, non-stimulus spending; filibuster any bill that has pork and earmarks.
#4 - Filibuster any bill that is not at least 50% tax rate reductions, ie, real tax cuts; only tax rate reductions and/or direct tax cuts, such as allowing 100% expensing in 2009 of depreciable expenses, would incentivize the private sector.
Obama and the Democrats are perpetrating a hoax on the American people with their bad bill, and I am counting on GOP Senators to lead the fight to expose it.
