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!

Senator I am embarrassed for all of you Republicans as you don't even support the constitution which by oath you are to do. I will do everything in my power to make sure that you and all of you who do not support our country and the constitution are removed from office. You need to listen to the LEADERS Ted Cruz and Mike Lee. The only ones with the cahoonas to stand up to Obama and his minions.

The theater to save Boehner in the house and McConnell selling out for three billion In pork with no regard for America is a great indicator that all in congress don't represent the people any longer and need to be fired. There was no cap on what Obama can and will borrow. There is no budget. There is a bunch of insane people running up debt with no regard go how to pay for it - oh yes I am sure you can tax us more and will, take bank accounts, jobs are already in jeopardy and there are no policies other than to grow wfare, snap and give amnesty to illegal democrat voters the latest push. Contrary to obamas opinion, being elected does not make you king/dictator. To hear him say that to oppose him after ring elected goes against the founding fathers. Is this the same founding fathers in the did manual that he labeled extremist. All of you need to be fired. For not honoring the constitution. And your oath to ser e and protect

I for one, want to know exactly what we are paying for in that budget. The fact that they threw in there tax payer money for a political campaign is ludicrous. What other insults to the American people are in there? And No !!! we do not want Obamacare. My premiums doubled along with obama's tax hike for us which took another 70$ a month, State Tax hikes, property Tax hikes and grocery hikes. I have very little left out my checks. And I'm still probably one of the more lucky ones. My Daughter lost her insurance all together. So much for keeping your insurance and doctors. Our president has lied to the American people and broken all his promises. I have lost all respect for a president and ALL politicians.

You have failed the Conservatives yet again. When are you going to listen to the American people you are suppose to represent? Obamacare is a threat to all of us, and spending needs to be cut instead of raising the debt ceiling. We do not need to keep adding to our Nation's debt. STOP THE SPENDING!! I HAVE TO AT HOME. THE GOVERNMENT HAS NO RIGHT TO KEEP THIS OUT OF CONTROL SPENDING SPREE EVERY SINGLE YEAR!! WE AS AVERAGE AMERICANS CAN'T AFFORD THIS!!! OUR PAY CHECKS DO NOT STRETCH ANY FURTHER!!! WHEN WILL YOU GET IT THROUGH YOUR THICK HEADS UP IN DC??? WHEN OUR COUNTRY COLLAPSES?? YOU WILL NOT GET MY VOTE IN THE FUTURE.
