Dear FreedomWorks member,
As one of our millions of FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your Representative and urge him or her to co-sponsor the “Require a PLAN Act”, H.R. 444. Introduced by Rep. Tom Price (GA-6), the bill would require the President to submit a budget plan that specifically details when and how it would achieve balance.
By law, the President is required to submit a budget by today, the first Monday of February. Yet, for the fourth time in five years, President Obama has declared that he will miss this deadline, showing contempt for both the law and for his obligations to the people who elected him. Furthermore, on the occasions when the President has bothered to put together a plan, he laid out a budget that would never achieve balance.
It is because of this “leadership” that the federal government has piled up a record $6 trillion in new debts in just the first four years under President Obama. Thus, Rep. Price’s H.R. 444 requires that the President submit a budget plan that specifies when it would achieve balance, with specific details about what policies he would see enacted in order to eliminate the annual budget deficit.
Hopefully, H.R. 444 will remind the President that he has a duty to lay out a fiscally responsible plan that places America back on the road to sustainability. I urge you to contact your Representative and ask him or her to co-sponsor H.R. 444, the Require a PLAN Act, today.
President and CEO, FreedomWorks
