We haven’t had many tea parties in North Dakota since last year. While this isn’t exactly a tea party, it’s a good opportunity to show up and make a difference.
Here’s the press release for the event:
The United States is in the midst of a massive spending crisis.
In the first 500 days of the current Administration, our national debt increased $2.2 trillion. We are adding a whopping $4.4 billion per day. And the federal government continues to spend at a rate of $112,000 per SECOND!
This rate of spending is irresponsible and unsustainable. It limits our economic growth and our ability to create new jobs. If we allow our elected officials to continue their spend first, pay later habits, we will face higher taxes, a higher cost of living, and a stagnant economy. And our children may never know the American dream.
President Reagan recognized that real and sustainable change must originate with American citizens. He harnessed the voices of individuals to transform government policy.
The Spending Revolt coalition seeks to permanently transform government spending through individual activism. Families across the country have been forced to make tough economic decisions. It is time our elected officials did the same.
SpendingRevolt.com is a broad coalition of taxpayers, business owners, women, families and policy organizations focused on breaking the cycle of spending dependency in Washington. By returning to the average rate of federal spending we sustained throughout the 1980s and 1990s (roughly 20 percent of GDP), we can get our fiscal house in order, balance the budget and most importantly ensure a financially sound future for all of us. By tightening the purse strings, we will also ensure government programs work more efficiently and effectively.
