Tell Washington to Cut Spending Now!

Tell Washington to Cut Spending Now!
Americans have tightened their belts, so should Washington!

For decades, Washington has continued to borrow and spend at a pace that is not sustainable. Washington is borrowing nearly 40 cents of every dollar we spend and the US debt is now the same size as our entire economy.

You and I understand that our families could not survive borrowing at the same rate, but Washington continues to use the same budgeting gimmicks and accounting tricks to hide our financial crisis.
That’s why Americans for Prosperity is pleased to announce our Cut Spending Now! Tour, which will be rolling through North Carolina this weekend. Click here to register for this free event!

Here are the event details:
Who: Hard-working, concerned citizens such as YOURSELF!

AFP applauds NC Senate Leader Berger for Stopping Corrupt Perdue Deal

AFP North Carolina State Director Dallas Woodhouse issued the following statement:

“Americans for Prosperity applauds State Senator Phil Berger for stopping the corrupt taxpayer fleecing once known as “Project Soccer.” This deal was corrupt on its face. The project would have enriched Governor Perdue’s supporters while leaving taxpayers with the bill. The fact that Governor Perdue is so reckless with taxpayer money and so little concerned with ethics should concern all North Carolina citizens.

We did it together! AFP members advance free market economic legislation in

It has been an exciting week at the General Assembly. In fact, the entire long session so far has been action-packed. Grassroots activism–in the form of voter education, emails and phone calls to legislators, rallies at the legislature and visiting elected officials—eventually results in good new policy for North Carolinians! (See the list below.)

Activists have come in carpools to Raleigh from as far away as New Bern, Wilmington and Asheville to rally in front of the state legislature in support of overrides of Governor Bev Perdue’s job killing vetoes. AFP members from across the state have visited their elected officials, made their presence known in the gallery, emailed, called and wrote letters.

Before the legislature returned on July 13, Americans for Prosperity held a Veto Bev Perdue rally to encourage lawmakers to override Bev Perdue’s vetoes of key job creating bills such as Medical Malpractice reform, the Energy Jobs Act, regulatory reform and others.
