AFP - Hanging in the Balance

Our window of opportunity is closing. Over the next few weeks, we're going to find out who in Washington wants to fix our nation's out-of-control finances and who wants to keep on spending.

The week of July 18, the U.S. House will vote on the Balanced Budget Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.  The amendment includes spending caps at 18 percent of GDP and a requirement for a supermajority vote to raise taxes.  We need your help to urge Congress to pass the amendment and send it to the states for ratification.

National District Office Day

A huge conservative coalition is coming together to visit our representatives' district offices this Thursday, July 14 at 12:00 Noon.

We need your help to make sure these events are a success.  I know you're busy.  We all are.  But please take a few minutes out of your day to stop by your representative's office and urge him or her to support the Balanced Budget Amendment.  It will make a big difference.

P.S. At an event in Clairmont, Ohio last week I spoke to a mother of 3 daughters who has gathered 1,437 signatures for a petition to put the federal health care takeover legislation on the ballot this fall in Ohio. Think about that: a mom with 3 kids and a job at her local church and she's knocked on doors, stood outside stores, approached friends and neighbors and gotten 1,437 people to sign a petition to put an important initiative on the ballot in Ohio.

That's the kind of commitment and passion for our nation and our values that I see every day on the road.  Let's make sure we're all doing our part. Let's take the time and go visit these congressional district offices this Thursday, July 14th. Click here to find the district office closest to you.
