Let’s Get Real about government spending.

Don’t Panic!

Every day people in Washington spread stories designed to create fear, anxiety and panic. Their outrageous tales are designed to drive home the false message that “spending cuts are bad” and create a sense of panic. We're not in this mess because Washington taxed too little — we're in this mess because Washington spent too much.

IT’S TIME for a
REALITY CHECK.

Cutting spending isn’t about gutting essential government services. No one wants that to happen. It’s about making our government more efficient, effective and less wasteful. Unfortunately, the government continues to drive us deeper into debt by squandering tax dollars on outrageous waste and bloated budgets.

WHY it MATTERS.

Will we be the first generation of Americans to leave our children WORSE off? Out of control government spending, waste, debt and higher taxes are destroying the American economy. You see it in your bank account and in the unemployment numbers. The simple answer is that Americans can’t afford to let Washington take any more of our money. Just like us, Washington needs to prioritize spending and live within a budget. Tell Washington get real about spending.
