Prosperity Alert: July 2011


Take Action


Tell Congress NO debt limit increase!
Despite our nation’s staggering $14.4 trillion debt, many in Washington including President Obama want to raise our nation’s debt limit without making permanent reforms in our fiscal policies. Join Senators Mike Lee, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio and many more and demand Washington Cut, Cap, and Balance the federal budget! It’s time to get serious about cutting spending … our children’s future depends on it. Take action today.

Tell Congress to Vote NO on Natural Gas Subsidies!
Republicans rightly rejected President Obama's pet project to subsidize electric vehicles, but now Democrats and Republicans are dangerously close to subsidizing natural gas vehicles. Urge your legislators to reject the special tax treatment for natural gas vehicles in the NAT GAS Act, H.R. 1380! Click here to sign the petition now.

Activist of the Month - Carol Ann Parisi


Carol Ann Parisi first became active in 2009, inspired by the health care debate. She wanted to get involved, and started by simply signing petitions and distributing them to her friends, family, and fellow activists. Then, in early 2010, Carol was introduced to Joe Calomino, AFP’s Illinois State Director, and she began to help coordinate volunteers and pass out literature. Carol says that her proudest moments with AFP include her work on local pension reform, and her coordination of phone banks for the Freedom Phone program. Carol has been happily married for 25 years and currently hosts and produces a local talk show and also works as a personal trainer and life coach. Thank you, Carol, for everything you do, and congratulations on being AFP’s Activist of the Month!
