Join us for a Tele-Townhall with Paul Ryan!


Andrew Moylan
March 7, 2011

 

In the time it takes you to read this blog post, the federal government will have racked up an additional $10 million in debt that will be passed along in higher burdens on our children and grandchildren. Learn about what conservatives in Congress are doing it to stop it by joining us for a tele-townhall event with Representative Paul Ryan (R-WI), Chairman of the House Budget Committee and the innovative fiscal conservative behind the “Roadmap for America’s Future.” NTU President Duane Parde will be hosting the 30 minute call with Dick Armey, Chairman of FreedomWorks, and you’re invited to hear the latest breaking news and ask questions! Join us and thousands of other activists on the call at 6pm Eastern time Wednesday, March 9th by dialing 1-888-886-6603, extension 16307#.

Our national debt has reached a staggering $14 trillion, and our deficit alone from this year is as big as the entire budget of 1998. Congress has been working on a spending bill for the rest of 2011, but even modest spending reductions amounting to less than four cents out of every dollar of overspending have been rejected by Washington liberals. In the coming weeks we’ll begin debate on the budget for 2012, so it has never been more important for you to make your voice heard on Capitol Hill.

Our tele-townhall will be a great chance for you to hear from a Representative Paul Ryan, who as the head of the House Budget Committee is right on the front lines of the battle to reduce spending and create a sustainable budget. Join us and learn about not only the dangers our debt poses, but also what conservatives in Congress plan on doing to stop it. At 6pm Eastern time Wednesday, March 9th, dial 1-888-886-6603, extension 16307# to join this important call.

We hope you’ll join us as we get the latest information on the upcoming showdown over spending.

Someone emailed me a link to the part of this website about income taxes. After I read it I thought I would leave a link explaining how deceptive it is for the regular viewers of this site.

laws/bills need to be written in 10th grade language so that most people can understand them. They should not be written in legalese. We need to reign in the judical branch so they can't be activists. There are about 5 Supreme Court Justices that need to be Impeached after 2012.

I believe you should ask the listeners to take a poll. Would you want to see a debate between the Flat Tax, Ryan's roadmap and the FairTAx. Other poll question. do you believe the Fairtax will transfer power back to the citizens and take a lot away from DC politicians?

all we ask as taxpayers and citizens is just do what you say you will do! I enjoyed the teleconference

Since Maine has opted out of the Obamacare law, what leverage will this provide if any, to not only defund it but repeal it?
