Senate Key Vote: Sen. Toomey’s Full Faith and Credit Act

January 31, 2013 J

Dear Senators:

On behalf of more than two million Americans for Prosperity activists in all 50 states, I urge you to support Senator Toomey’s Full Faith and Credit Act as an amendment to H.R. 325, the temporary debt ceiling increase. Now is the time to end the demagoguery over whether the country is going to default on its debt obligations and have a serious conversation about spending.

I urge you to vote YES on the Toomey Full Faith and Credit Amendment to H.R. 325. Americans for Prosperity will include this vote in our congressional scorecard.

The United States’ credit rating is far too important for some Washington lawmakers and the media to use it for political purposes. Unfortunately, that is precisely what we’ve witnessed in recent history. As the country once again faces raising the debt ceiling, big government advocates are panicking to ensure that their programs are insulated from the necessary fiscal reforms that are sweeping the country. The Treasury Department already has the discretionary authority to prioritize debt payments. This amendment would simply ensure that the Treasury lives up to those obligations. It would also quiet the irresponsible rhetoric on the Left that the federal government is in danger of default.

The most responsible action consistent with limited-government principles is to acknowledge past debts, pay them and simultaneously make the spending cuts needed to correct our fiscal imbalance. I urge you to support this commonsense amendment and take the important next steps to put the budget on a path that will mitigate the need for these measures in the future.

I urge you to vote YES on the Toomey Full Faith and Credit Amendment to H.R. 325. Americans for Prosperity will include this vote in our congressional scorecard.

Sincerely,

James Valvo
Director of Policy
Americans for Prosperity
