Join the Tea Party Budget Coalition!

When it comes to spending reductions and stopping the debt, Washington can only kick the can down the road. Whether it’s President Obama’s "fiscal commission" or the congressional “Super Committee” –- typical "bipartisan," "insider" efforts – it’s clear Washington can't get this job done without outside help.
America faces a Greece-style debt crisis in the next few years. We are convinced Washington won’t get serious about stopping the debt until Tea Party activists take over this process. We need to take charge because Congress keeps failing to do its job. The 12-member Tea Party Debt Commission was formed in late June of this year to provide Congress with a serious, credible plan that cuts government spending by at least $9 trillion and balances the budget within 10 years. The result of the Commission’s work is the Tea Party Budget. This plan gives the Tea Party a voice in Washington by providing a unique and serious plan constructed from the grassroots up. This budget reflects suggestions and input from more than 50,000 Americans. The Commission held field hearings, and took testimony to gather ideas from local activists, in communities across the country. Grassroots activists were also able to vote online at TeaPartyDebtCommission.com for which budget-cutting ideas they would prioritize.
On Thursday, November 17th, more than 200 Tea Party leaders brought the Tea Party Budget to a joint meeting on Capitol Hill. Members that attended the meeting include: Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), Rep. Joe Walsh (R-IL), Rep. Paul Broun, M.D. (R-GA), Rep. Steve King (R-IA), Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN), and Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-SC).
The mainstream media claims the Tea Party movement wants "draconian" cuts yet lacks a reasonable plan. The new "Tea Party Budget" plan offers a full-fledged rebuke to that assertion. As you’ll see when you read it, it’s detailed, serious, optimistic, practical, and bold. The plan:
Next Step: Build Support
Our goal now is to gain the support of as many tea parties across the country as possible, in hopes of getting the Tea Party Budget introduced and voted on in Congress.
Please join us! If you’d like your local group to become a part of this coalition effort, please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dozens of groups have already enlisted in the Coalition. We plan to publish a complete list in mid-December.
If you want your group to be on this list, please let us know by 8:00 p.m. eastern time, on Friday, December 9th.
