|1.||Cut Cap & Balance|
Cut Cap & Balance is a pledge any sound thinking American can take which promotes cutting already enacted excessively crazy federal spending, permanently capping federal spending at a reasonable sustainable level, and amending the US constitution to require a balanced federal budget.
The pledge is commonly thusly repeated (hand over heart optional):
I pledge to require legislators to oppose any debt limit
increase unless all three of the following conditions have
Cut - Substantial cuts in spending that will reduce the
deficit next year and each and every thereafter.
Cap - Enforceable spending caps that will put federal
spending on a path to a balanced budget.
Balance - Congressional passage of a Balanced
Budget Amendment to the U.S. Constitution which
includes both a spending limitation and a super-
majority for raising taxes, in addition to balancing
revenues and expenses.
Tina: Yo Tom, you wild and crazy Tea Partier, you keep complaining about nutty spending liberals but I don't get what you are offering instead.
Tom: My dearest Tina, I'm not just a Tea Partier, I'm a member of The Party of FUCK NO!. Us TPoFN!’ers right now are asking every clear thinking American to take the Cut Cap & Balance pledge.
Tina: Fucking a !
Tom: Rolling over off the wet spot – I just did.
