Tell Congress: No Debt Ceiling Hikes!

It's likely lawmakers will again play Chicken Little come February and ask for yet another increase in the borrowing limit. That's why we need to contact congress now and demand them to do the opposite.

“A failure to raise the debt ceiling would not cause default, but it would force us to balance the budget. It would perhaps make Washington politicians begin to take the disastrous spending problem seriously.” – Sen. Rand Paul

The alarmists always claim it is necessary for Congress to raise the debt limit to avoid some kind of national default or fiscal catastrophe. The thing is, they're dead wrong -- debt limit hikes are not needed to preserve the “full faith and credit” of the United States. The fact is, the U.S. Government has never once defaulted and isn't about to.

Sadly, on October 16, a coalition of Big Government lawmakers in the House and Senate succeeded in raising the debt ceiling until February 7, 2014.

It's likely lawmakers will again play Chicken Little come February and ask for yet another increase in the borrowing limit. That's why we need to contact congress now and demand them to do the opposite.

We don’t need another debt ceiling hike – we’ve already had nearly seventy-nine of them since 1960 – what we need is less government!

Take action! Sign the petition and send a message to your U.S. Representative and Senators telling them to OPPOSE debt ceiling hikes and SUPPORT a balanced budget!

When will the government realize that it cannot continue to keep spending money that we--the taxpayers--do not have? When will the government realize that for every dollar it borrows, it devalues the dollars that we have in circulation that much more, thus making it even more difficult for the public to pay its own bills and buy simple grocery staples such as bread and milk? The government needs to rein in its spending and we the American citizenry need to force the government to do so. If there were a way to legally refuse to pay taxes until such time that the government got its head screwed on straight, I would suggest that we do so. No funding source would be willing to let the American government borrow *all* the money to fund its spendthrift budget and the powers that be would be forced to make changes. Currently, the government is out of control: it is spending like a little kid who has been given a huge Christmas bundle of cash. They are throwing the money around on unnecessary expenditures (especially those that turn out to be scams and failures such as Solyndra) without a single care in the world, especially not about those of us over whom they have seized dominion. Enough is Enough!

Come Feb. 7, NO more lifting the Debt Ceiling, even if it means, shutting the government down again. Republicans should not have caved in to Obama in the first place. Cut funds to 27 countries, on Sept. 11, 2012, they were burning our flags and rallying and saying death to Americans. Stop there funding. Then start with Obama's Czars, cut them in 1/2, Michelle's maids, she has 22 maids, Laura Bush had 1. She needs 2 only. Cut the security guards for the girls from 11 to 1 each for each girl. Get Rid of Bo's trainer, and no more vacations, on a seperate jet. That is costing us $180,000. per hour. Obama and Michelle have abused there vacations, they have already spent more than G.Bush. in 8 years. Obama continues to spend money, that we do not have. Trufully he does not care how much our debt is, he is trying to destroy our country, and millions of Americans feel the same way. After defunding those 27 countries. That will help, And to help more, everyone in Congress needs to pay for there own Healthcare. That will save us millions of dollars a year. If all of Congress is going to abuse there greed, then they should start by paying there own way, you are getting paid dearly for it. And take away Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reids private jet, and anyone else who are getting free private jet. If everyone in congress does this, that will cut billion of dollars a year. And last Obama needs to be IMPEACHED, for going behind congress back and does what he pleases.

Enough is enough....if you ran your household the way the government runs theirs, where would you be?? Is this what we are teaching our future generations of Americans? To spend money we dont have and to constantly borrow and be in debt?

My boss, from Ireland and Obama supporter, hated I supported the constitution, the Tea Party, so when when they looked at the budget they were going to need for the next fiscal year to cover the huge increases for Obamacare, they looked at my pay and took me out. So after 43 years in a career, I was out looking for work, my premiums went from $385 for my family with a family deductable of $700 to $1000 monthly premium and $24,350 deductable due to me having diabetes. I also lost my short and long term disability and life insurance. I heard they laid off several more people and are asking the members to not expect the quality they have had in the past due to the government demands. My boss was also very upset with me I e-verified my employees (44 of them) and many were not legal. We paid 80% employee benefits for them and their families but all the hispanics turned it down because they said its better for them to pay nothing, go to the emergency room and leave everyone else with a bill they do not intend to pay. Keep up the great work Sen. Cruz. God honors those who honor him and the Word which is throughout the Constitution. God Bless and take no prisoners.
