Keep the Caps: New Orleans – Thursday, October 17


Lee Schalk
October 11, 2013

That’s right, NTU is headed to New Orleans for another Keep the Caps event!

TICKETS HERE.

After a successful luncheon and protest in Little Rock, Arkansas, we’re excited to be partnering with our Louisiana friends from The Hayride blog and American Voice PAC next week to spread the word about Washington’s spending problem.

Here’s the plan:

We will gather outside Ernst Cafe at 3:30pm and walk four blocks toward Senator Landrieu's New Orleans office for a rally and protest. Shortly after, we will head back to Ernst Cafe for free food, beverages, giveaways, and more.

Our message? It’s past time to get a grip on out-of-control national debt and spending.

Just two years after creating common-sense, bipartisan caps on federal spending, some politicians in Washington, including Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu, are trying to change the law and undo these sensible, bipartisan caps so they can continue to play games with your tax dollars. 

The modest spending restraint of 3 cents on the dollar, imposed by the Budget Control Act of 2011, is an important step in reining in our nation's out of control spending. So far, the sequester has been a success, with federal expenditures falling two years in a row – the first time since the end of the Korean War. 

On October 17, Louisianans have an opportunity to make their voices heard. Let's tell Senator Landrieu, President Obama, and the rest of Washington to Keep the Caps!

Be sure to grab your free ticket and RSVP by clicking HERE. Tell your friends, and we’ll see you Thursday!
