Urge Lawmakers to keep their promise to cap spending
Congress has until April 28th to pass a spending bill (i.e. a continuing resolution) that keeps the government fully funded. When they do, they need to keep to the spending limits they promised.
It was a rare bipartisan accomplishment, but the 2011 Budget Control Act established spending caps that committed lawmakers to preventing any spending increases past a certain threshold.
Congress has already broken this promise twice by spending above the limits. That doesn’t have to be the case with this next spending fight.
The increased spending and big-government, top-down policies it brought did little to stimulate the economy and resulted in the slowest economic growth since the 1950s.
If we fail to change course, our astronomical debt will crush our economy and threaten our national security. The more debt we take on, the more our debt payments will continue to grow, crowding out the ability to fund vital programs and services.
I demand that our lawmakers pass a clean funding bill that sticks to the spending caps they promised.
