Stand with Phil Berger, go to http://goo.gl/4IMRFQ and sign the petition. Make your voice heard. Attorney General Eric Holder and President Obama want to strike down our new voter ID law. We have the right to common-sense laws in North Carolina, don’t let Washington tell us what to do.
Congress and the Obama Administration are considering new taxes and regulations on the energy industry. Raising taxes on the oil and natural gas industry could increase the cost of energy for American families and businesses. Washington D.C. must not put millions of jobs like ours at risk.

With high unemployment still stifling our economic recovery, a tax proposal that threatens jobs is the wrong choice for America. This could force employers to lay off workers, reduce salaries, stop funding retirement programs or postpone investment in their businesses. Click here to sign our pledge to oppose the tax proposal!

In 2006, then-Senator Obama voted against raising the debt ceiling saying “raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure.” Today, President Obama is calling on Republicans to do just that without any reforms to fix our nation’s addiction to spending. I’m sure President Obama is hoping you had forgotten his words from 2006. But we didn’t and neither should you. Since 2006, our national debt has doubled from $8.3 trillion to $16.7 trillion with the majority of that growth falling under President Obama’s failed leadership. Today, House Republicans are leading the fight to defeat ObamaCare, rein in runaway spending in Washington, and end the Democrat government shutdown. As conservatives, you and I know we can’t afford to continue down this reckless path. But President Obama and Congressional Democrats don’t want to listen to the truth, so they’re refusing to negotiate. It’s time to speak up. President Obama and Harry Reid can only ignore us if we let them.
Warren Buffett, in a recent interview with CNBC, offers one of the best quotes about the debt ceiling.
“I could end the deficit in 5 minutes,” he told CNBC. “You just pass a law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more than 3% of GDP, all sitting members of Congress are ineligible for re-election.”
The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified! Why? Simple! The people demanded it. That was in 1971 – before computers, e-mail, cell phones, etc. Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took one (1) year or less to become the law of the land – all because of public pressure.
Warren Buffet is asking each addressee to forward this email to a minimum of twenty people on their address list; in turn ask each of those to do likewise. In three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message. This is one idea that really should be passed around.
Congressional Reform Act of 2013
No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman/woman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they’re out of office.
Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security. All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.
Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.
Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.
Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.
Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.
All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void effective 12/1/13. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen/women.
Congress made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work.
If each person contacts a minimum of twenty people then it will only take three days for most people (in the U.S.) to receive the message. Don’t you think it’s time?
Make no mistake, the mainstream media has their marching orders – and they’re coming directly from President Obama. Yesterday, I was on MSNBC to discuss the Democrat Shutdown. But instead of answering fair, unbiased questions, all I got were Democrat talking points.
Barack Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi are willing to shut down the government to protect ObamaCare. But many Americans can’t even sign-up for the program online due to widespread technical glitches.
Republicans are standing on principles whereas Democrats are resorting to cheap political tactics such as barricading our veterans from the World War II Memorial in Washington, DC. And the media has their back every step of the way.
Our Republican House majority needs your support in this fight. We cannot allow the Democrats and their media mouthpieces to go unanswered.
