Call Senators Now!

Senate Voting on Republican Continuing Resolution!

The Senate will be voting on the House Continuing Resolution (CR) this week! This is the CR that the GOP passed through the House and cuts $61 billion. Now we all know that $61 billion is NOTHING, but the Democrats in the Senate want the cuts to be even less! Check out this video to put the minuscule cuts in perspective:

We have a small chance of pressuring the Democrats into voting for this bill now, TODAY!!

Below you will find the points to make when you call the Democrats and below that you will find the list of Democrats to call. Pass this on and let's get this passed NOW!

Points to Make:
Over the last four years discretionary spending has risen by more than 24%
$61 billion in cuts accounts for only 4.7% of discretionary spending! That means that the increased spending from the last four years would still amount to roughly a 20% increase in spending!
$61 billion in cuts accounts for only 1.6% of the entire budget! The entire budget right now is a massive, whopping $1.3 TRILLION!
The federal deficit for the month of February 2011 - alone - was $223 billion!!
$61 billion in cuts is equal to less than 8% of the stimulus package
The Democrats' budget leaves in place 99.72% of the current spending - while 95% of the American public want the deficit reduced and a majority favor spending cuts over tax hikes
MESSAGE to Say when You Call Senators Below: Stop playing games with our future. I get it and the American people get it, $61 billion in discretionary cuts is certainly not "draconian," and if you want to be seen as someone who is serious, and who truly cares about the future of this nation, you will make no excuses and vote YES today on HR 1 and you will cut $61 billion today!

Let's get to work! Senators stop playing games with our future. Call your Senator and tell them to vote Yes on HR 1 to cut $61 billion today.
