Citizen Debt Commission Squelched by Democrats

I don't know about you, but I know horse dung when I smell it.  And, the Democrat horse dung as described below is particularly stinky.  Our Government has run wild and has stopped representing in the best interest of the our Republic.

I'm convinced they want to see America fail, and one way they are perpetuating this idea is by squelching the voices of responsible reason.

Here's the news report as picked up in my e-mail this morning.

"Washington Can't Ignore the Tea Party

Dear Daniel,

As you know, the Senate has failed to pass a budget resolution for three years running. Now they won't even let the American people do the job for them.

This afternoon, 200 FreedomWorks members and representatives from tea party groups across the country met in the Russell Senate Office building to formally present our plan to balance the federal budget and cut $9.7 trillion in spending over the next 10 years. Unfortunately, it seems like the only thing Washington wants to hear is excuses.

The Democrats who run the Senate Rules Committee were so afraid of the tea party plan to balance the federal budget that they ordered committee staff to remove the microphones we had set up for the event while Capitol Police blocked the doors of our hearing room, which had been reserved by Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) specifically for this event more than two weeks ago. At the same time, a "suspicious package" was reported in the room next door and all visitors and staff were barred from the area.


Although Senator Lee courageously stood up for us, he ultimately determined that the hearing should proceed without further interruption or harassment. For that reason we moved to another location off the Capitol grounds where our commission of 12 volunteer tea party activists presented their recommendations to a fired-up crowd.

Senator Lee was also joined there by Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), Reps. Joe Walsh (R-IL), Steve King (R-IA), Mike Pence (R-IN), Mick Mulvaney (R-SC) and Paul Broun (R-GA). Rep. Broun received a standing ovation when he offered to help draft and sponsor legislation that could eventually allow our recommended cuts to become law.

Unfortunately, the unexpected location change disrupted live coverage of our hearing on CSPAN, but please click to watch the video, which provides highlights from this afternoon's events.
