“But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned;

if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity;

but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand."

Ezekiel 33:6


"A righteous man falling down before the wicked is as a troubled fountain, and a corrupt spring."

Proverbs 25:26

URGENT: Tell your Senators to vote YES on the 'Cut Cap Balance' Act


URGENT: Tell your Congressman to vote YES on the 'Cut Cap Balance' Act
Tell him/her to vote YES on the Cut, Cap, and Balance Act of 2011.

--The bill number of the House-passed bill is H.R.2560.  
(The number of the companion Senate bill is S.1340.)  
--The House passed H.R.2560 on Tuesday, July 19, 2011, by a margin of 234 to 190.  5 Democrats voted in favor of the bill. 
--The Cut, Cap, and Balance Act meets the criteria of the Cut, Cap, and Balance Pledge
1) It substantially cuts spending;
2) It creates enforceable spending caps;
3) It requires congressional passage of a Balanced Budget Amendment to the U.S. Constitution that includes a spending limitation and a super-majority to raise taxes before the debt ceiling can be raised.
--The debt held by the public has more than doubled in just the past five years. Interest paid on the national debt is expected to more than triple over the next ten years. 
--Many economists believe the US faces a Greek-style debt crisis within the next five years if we do not get our fiscal house in order very soon. 
--The federal government has hit the $14.292 trillion debt limit set in February 2010. Raising the debt ceiling without significant spending cuts is simply a tax increase on future generations. 
--Moody’s Investors Services has said the AAA rating of US government bonds is in jeopardy unless Congress passes “a budget that includes long-term deficit reduction.” 
--Standard & Poor's has said it will downgrade US debt if the US doesn't 1) cut spending substantially and 2) REFORM the way it budgets, to control future spending. 
--The Cut Cap Balance Act (CCB) is the ONLY debt reduction plan in Washington that meets the tests set forth by Moody's and S&P, so we never again face this kind of debt problem. In short, Cut Cap Balance = a triple-A rating ("CCB=AAA"). 
--The Cut Cap Balance Act is the only way we can stop the McConnell-Reid "Cut Run & Hide" plan, which would give President Obama the power to increase the national debt by $2.5 trillion, unilaterally. 
--The Cut Cap Balance Act is a long-term deficit reduction package that will ensure we get back on the path of fiscal sanity and are not downgraded from our AAA bond rating.
