Big Spenders in Washington—Not Tea Party— to Blame for Credit Downgrade

Lots of finger pointing has occurred following the first-ever downgrade of the United States credit rating last week. Numerous political figures, including Sen. Kerry (D-Mass.) and the Obama administration’s former chief advisor David Axelrod, blame the Tea Party for the Standards and Poor’s (S&P) downgrading the U.S. credit rating from AAA to AA+. Some media talking heads have even dubbed it the “Tea Party Downgrade.” The truth, however, tells an entirely different story.

The Government Spending Binge

Tea Party Stood Strong During Debt-Ceiling Debate

The so-called historic debt-ceiling deal passed the Senate 74-26 yesterday and quickly landed on President Obama’s desk. He immediately signed the lousy compromise to raise the debt ceiling by $900 billion. The past few weeks have been filled with numerous lies and scare tactics.

Key Vote NO on Speaker Boehner's Revised Debt Ceiling Plan

Dear FreedomWorks member, As one of our million-plus FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your Representative and ask him or her to vote NO on Speaker Boehner’s revised debt ceiling plan. While we applaud House leadership for passing the Cut, Cap and Balance Act last week, we do not support Speaker Boehner’s new compromise, which violates the Cut, Cap and Balance Pledge because it neither cuts nor caps nor balances federal spending.

Principles over Compromises: Oppose Speaker Boehner’s Debt-Ceiling Plan

With the Obama administration’s phony debt-limit deadline just five days away, all eyes remain fixed on the ongoing debate in Washington. Per usual, nearly all members of the party in power support raising the debt ceiling with no strings attached while most in the minority party do not. The debt ceiling has been raised ten times in just the past decade with both parties playing political games.

The Truth About the Fourteenth Amendment

At the founding of our great nation a resident of Philadelphia asked Benjamin Franklin what type of government the delegates have created?  Franklin responded, “A republic, if you can keep it.”  However, as August 2nd looms ever near, and negotiations over the debt ceiling seem to be at a standstill, proponents of big g
