AFP Denounces President Obama’s Political Attempt to Distort Mortgage Market

October 27, 2011

President Obama “can’t wait” to Saddle Taxpayers With $600 Million in Debt

Americans for Prosperity released a statement today denouncing President Obama for yet again seeking to impose his fiscally-unsound agenda by sidestepping Congress. The President’s American Jobs Act, which amounts to yet another mortgage bailout, is being pushed with phony urgency under the slogan “we can’t wait.”

Phil Kerpen, Vice President of Policy at Americans for Prosperity said, “Just last month, President Obama said he wished he could, ‘Work my way around Congress.’ Clearly he wasn’t kidding. The President seems to think of himself as a monarch rather than an executive responsible to “preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution of the United States” Despite years studying and teaching the Constitution, Obama has failed to the grasp the concept of checks and balances.”

AFP in the Daily Caller: Occupy Wall Street dead-ends while tea party movement marches on

October 21, 2011

The Occupy Wall Street movement is loud but limited. Compare its beginnings with the tea party’s. A month into the tea party’s existence, hundreds of thousands of Americans in thousands of towns and cities had joined the cause. Their message was crystal clear: bring back economic prosperity by cutting government spending and taxation, rolling back intrusive regulations and expanding individual freedom. The rule of law was respected as well.

A month into the Occupy Wall Street movement, we see a few thousand radicals in a couple of dozen big-city liberal enclaves. They’re breaking the law in city after city. And their message? Well, it’s all over the radical left map: demands for debt forgiveness, anti-military diatribes and even calls for the end to free enterprise and the seizure of private property. There are calls for violence mixed with virulently anti-Semitic slurs denigrating the “Jews who run Wall Street.”

Cut Spending Now tour goes through Memphis

October 18, 2011

Americans for Prosperity's Cut Spending Now tour had two great stops in Memphis, TN and Jonesboro, AR on Saturday. What made them great? The dedicated people that showed up with friends and family because they are tired of the continued generational debt Washington is placing us in.

The fabulous restaurant Kooky Canuck was the stop in Memphis. We were thrilled that proprietor, Shawn Danko, opened his doors to us in an effort to spread a fiscally responsible message to Memphis and the surrounding areas.

While the River City brought an energizing start to the day, Jonesboro was filled with fired up activists. Many activists came out in force to the Chick-fil-A on Stadium Boulevard. They signed petitions, picked out some of the awesome Cut Spending Now t-shirts, and gathered information that will be used to educate both themselves and friends/family.
