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!

Government is simply too big, doing things it wasn't intended to do nor should do. Create a balanced budget amendment and drastically reduce the size of government.

we need a constitutional amendment that no member gets pqaid unless we have a balanced budget and that means no retroactive pay after one is passed

Barrack Obama made a famous statement in March, 2006, where he indicated: ""The fact that we are here today to debate raising America 's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America 's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, "the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better." ~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006 As POTUS, how about we hold his feet to the fire, for JUST ONCE IN HIS LIFE, and INSIST that he live up to JUST ONE OF his statements, JUST ONCE . . . . . . .

Government waste – like the 50 federal programs across 20 agencies that promote financial literacy and the $1.7 billion spent each year to maintain underutilized or entirely vacant federal properties is evidence that there is a lot of unnecessary government spending! It's like a family changing cable companies and still paying the old company in addition to the new payments. If the government shutdown has shown us anything, it’s that the federal bureaucracy provides far too many functions and programs that simply are not “essential,” particularly with our nation laboring under a $16.7 trillion debt. "Temporary" government programs live on forever. Clean up the government's fiscal house. We the People do not consent to an increase in your credit limit when you are not managing in a fiscally sound manner what you have already received.
