NRSC - Held hostage

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is once again playing politics at the expense of the American people.

This time, he's using taxpayers and government employees as pawns in the Democrats' latest scheme to force Republicans to accept tax increases on job creators.

Barack Obama, Harry Reid and the rest of the Democrats have decided to hold the government funding bill hostage without Republicans agreeing to job killing tax increases -- potentially causing a government shutdown!

Their latest plan hopes to force Republicans to support a proposal backed by President Obama and Harry Reid.

Ultimately, they have failed to produce a budget in almost 1,000 days, but somehow they'll try and twist the truth in another attempt to convince the American people that Republicans are at fault.

Make no mistake, Republicans are committed to our core principles -- limited government and economic freedom. So, we'll fight any Democrat proposals that will further hinder our economic recovery.

But right now, the American people are still struggling. And, it's outrageous that Harry Reid, Barack Obama and the Democrats would play political games.

So please, help me send a clear message that you're fed up with these Washington games. Take a moment right now to send in an end-of-year contribution of $20, $50, $100 or more to help us reach our goal.

Democrats are engaged in exactly the type of failed leadership the American people reject. We need your help now to elect four more Republican Senators in 2012 to remove Harry Reid from power and stop these counterproductive games that inflict even further damage to our economy.

PS. There are only 17 days left in 2011. Please help us reach our fundraising goal of $250,000 before the end of year. We're well on our way but we need every Republican committed to ending the failed presidency of Barack Obama and replacing Harry Reid to make a contribution now to build our early campaign warchest.
