July 15th, 2011, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson today thanked House Speaker John Boehner for allowing a vote next week on the "Cut, Cap, and Balance Act," urging the House to pass it and send it to the Senate:
"Next week, the U.S. House of Representatives will decide whether or not to responsibly tackle the debt crisis through real cuts that will preserve the nation's creditworthiness for the future. The alternative McConnell-Obama plan sidesteps the issue and postpones the day of reckoning. Congress cannot afford to kick the can one time.
"Americans for Limited Government thanks House Speaker for John Boehner for allowing this vote, which may be the nation's last hope to turn the Ship of State around.
"The 'Cut, Cap, and Balance' plan is the only legitimate option to address the nation's long-term fiscal crisis, when soon the debt will become so large it cannot possibly be repaid. Americans for Limited Government strongly urges passage, and will rate members accordingly who profess to be fiscally responsible but cave under pressure when it comes time to cut up Barack Obama's maxed-out credit card."
