All across America, people are looking to Congress and the White House and asking the same question: “Is anybody listening?”
The American people said “NO” to wasteful government spending.
What did they get? An $800 billion stimulus bill.
The American people said “NO” to a government-takeover of health care.
What did they get? A radical overhaul of one-sixth of the economy.
The American people are saying “NO” to more government bailouts.
What are they getting? A $60 billion bailout of Greece and the European Union – all of it with U.S. tax money – without even a vote in Congress or a public statement from the President.
The time has come for Washington, D.C. to start listening to the American people. And House Republicans are ready to start the conversation.
Today, House Republicans are launching AmericaSpeakingOut.com, a new interactive website where you can help create a new agenda for America’s future. Whether it’s on the economy, spending, values, national security, or another topic, we are asking you and all Americans to speak out and help us build an agenda that reflect your priorities.
Using the best of social media, on AmericaSpeakingOut.com you are able to submit a policy solution, promote your priorities, debate the ideas posted by other Americans, and share the conversation with your friends and neighbors via Facebook and Twitter. It is our hope that AmericaSpeakingOut.com will become the home to an unprecedented online conversation between Americans and those elected to represent them.
Later this year, House Republicans will take the ideas from AmericaSpeakingOut.com and put together an historic agenda that can transcend politics and get America back on track.
Now is America’s time to speak out. Will you join us? President Eisenhower once said, “Politics should be the full-time career of no one; and the part-time career of everyone.” Through AmericaSpeakingOut.com, you can lend your voice to a growing national movement to restore the will of the American people in Washington D.C.
Please go to AmericaSpeakingOut.com today. Log in, start a conversation, get involved, stay involved, and recruit your friends. If we seize this opportunity to empower the American people, I believe that one day our children will look back at the year 2010, and say, “That was the year America woke up and reclaimed its destiny; that was the year the American Renaissance began; and that was the year the American Dream was passed down safely to the next generation.”
