Share your story: Tell us how Big Government hurts YOU!
Over the last few weeks, the Obama Administration and its allies in the Senate have indicated sequestration will bring about a fiscal Armageddon in America. They have touted sob stories about the middle-class and states to pressure Republicans into changing course on tax hikes and abandon even modest reductions in the growth of spending.
It’s long past time for Tea Party activists and fiscal conservatives to fight the Administration with its own tactics and tell the real story of this economy – that it is big government holding back economic growth. It is overspending, not a lack of tax revenue, that is sending America down the path to fiscal Armageddon. It is over-regulation that keeps businesses from starting in the first place, as well as driving existing ones overseas for greener and more profitable pastures.
To fight the big government narrative, we are asking you to share your story on how big government hurts you. Fiscal sanity is often portrayed by the mainstream media and Beltway politicians as hurting the lower-class and middle-class, and there is always a person they can put on TV to make that pain seem believable. It’s time we use this strategy ourselves and show that fiscal responsibility is a personal, moral issue for millions of Americans. The mainstream media wants to paint the Tea Party as the Grinch Who Stole Your Entitlements, and the only way to stop them is to beat them at their own game.
To do this successfully, however, we need your help. Share your story with us. Let us know how big government is hurting you and your family so we can combat the over spenders on their own ground. Let’s bring the fight to them. Let’s show them we are not middle-class, or upper-class, or lower-class here in America. We are all Americans, and we are for a government that does what’s best for all of us, not just those with special connections.
