Two weeks ago Senator Pat Toomey (R-PA) was one of the first signers of the “Cut, Cap, and Balance” Pledge to help reduce the out of control spending in Washington.
I pledge to urge my Senators and Member of the House of Representatives to oppose any debt limit increase unless all three of the following conditions have been met:
- Cut – Substantial cuts in spending that will reduce the deficit next year and thereafter.
- Cap – Enforceable spending caps that will put federal spending on a path to a balanced budget.
- Balance – Congressional passage of a Balanced Budget Amendment to the U.S. Constitution — but only if it includes both a spending limitation and a super-majority for raising taxes, in addition to balancing revenues and expenses.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
1. Sign the Pledge
2. Spread the word on Facebook and Twitter
