    Letter to House: Sign Letter to Speaker Boehner to Return Spending Back to FY2008 Levels

    Dear Representative,

    FreedomWorks is a leading grassroots organization with over one million members fighting for lower taxes, less government and more freedom. I am writing today to ask you to sign onto a Republican Study Committee letter to Speaker Boehner that supports going back to FY2008 spending levels through the upcoming continuing resolution. We hope that you understand the importance of reining in excessive government spending for the sake of our future prosperity.

    During the November elections, the American people’s voice was heard at the ballot box. They overwhelmingly voted to restore fiscal sanity in Washington. Americans are rightfully concerned about Washington’s reckless spending habits that have increased the national debt to approximately $14 trillion. During the campaign trail, House Republicans pledged that they would cut at least $100 billion in federal spending. The American people are now watching to ensure that you keep your promise.

    On March 4th, the current continuing resolution will expire. This will be an excellence opportunity to meet the $100 billion savings goal through the continuing resolution. FreedomWorks is willing to work with you to compile a list of common sense spending cuts that will meet and exceed the original savings goal. One way to achieve this goal has been presented by Republican Study Committee Chairman Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH), who has introduced a proposal that includes $125 billion of immediate rescissions. His plan would cut $2.5 trillion from the federal budget over the next ten years and has support in the Senate.

    By signing onto the Republican Study Committee’s letter, it will show the American people that you are committed to rolling back spending. The Republicans were put in charge of the House for a reason. We hope that you will back your campaign promises with action. Please sign onto the RSC letter to Speaker Boehner today.

    Sincerely,
