Being a United States Congressman must be a very stressful job with constituents, lobbyists, and special interest groups all vying for your attention. It must be doubly hard during times of budget constraints. People can be passionate and unrelenting for their causes when they think the government should aid them in their endeavors. One man's special interest group is another man's passion.
We're no different in our passion, concern for the future of our country and the tidal wave of crushing debt that is on the horizon. Forty cents out of every dollar that the federal goverment spends is borrowed money. Think about that, how is that sustainable?
That is why we would like to ask our Congressman, Charlie Dent, to stand firm against spending and to roll back the debt that is robbing our children's future. The Tea Party, 9-12'ers, Americans for Prosperity, and other groups are unique constituencies in that we do not want anything from the government other than to expect it to live within it's means.
There's a rally in Allentown on Tuesday at noon to support Charlie in standing firm against runaway spending and for those who can't make that there is an online petition to sign.
