    Sixty-Four Tea Party Groups Sign onto the “Cut, Cap and Balance Pledge” During FreedomWorks Grassroots Boot Camp

    WASHINGTON, DC- This weekend, FreedomWorks hosted over 150 of the top Tea Party, 9-12 and liberty- loving allies from about 40 states for a grassroots training boot camp.  After hours of lengthy, thoughtful discussion on the federal budget and national debt, the following 64 groups, have joined FreedomWorks and many of its allies in the “Cut Cap and Balance Pledge” coalition. 

    The purpose of the coalition is to push Senators and House Members to sign the “Cut Cap and Balance Pledge,” a plan to ensure permanent change is brought to Washington before even considering raising the debt ceiling. The plan includes immediate spending cuts, a serious cap on federal spending, and passage of a Balanced Budget Amendment that includes a spending limitation and a super-majority for raising taxes. 

    “It’s time to force Washington to live within its means,” commented Matt Kibbe, President of FreedomWorks. “On May 16th, the United States officially hit its $14.3 trillion statutory debt limit. We don’t have the luxury of time anymore to keep putting off these tough decisions. The spending spree has to stop. A Balanced Budget Amendment is an effective way to permanently change the culture of spending in Washington.”
