IT IS TIME FOR A FILIBUSTER!! These are the wobbly Republicans. We have had issues with reaching some of their offices, so we recommend faxes and phone calls to their state offices. That information is at the bottom of the page. Now is not the time to grow weary. We are making a difference. If you heard President Obama's speech last night or Harry Reid's from the Senate floor, you know we are VERY close to shutting this thing down. Please do what ever you can to bring about the demise of this bill.

RNC Chairman Michael Steele Weekly Republican Address



This is Michael Steele, Chairman of the Republican National Committee. Democrats have controlled both branches of government for less than a month. And you have to wonder if all that power has gone to their heads.

Happy Birthday to the Gipper!

"Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it."

#TCOT - Support for #Stimulus Dwindling!


Tuesday, the Rasmussen Reports released its latest poll on the
Stimulus Bill and the results prove that the more Americans hear about
the bill, the less they like it. What has not been widely reported is
that the poll also shows that Jim DeMint's alternative is gaining in
approval, even though it has not been heavily publicized!

1) The latest survey shows that only 37% of Americans favor the
current bill. Two weeks ago, the support was at 45% and last week it
was at 42%. That's an eight point drop in just two weeks. We are
having an effect! The most interesting numbers are among the
"independent" voters, who oppose the bill by a full 50% and favor it
by only 27%. Furthermore, overall opposition to the bill has gone from
34% two weeks ago to 43% today - an increase of nine percent. For the
first time, more Americans oppose the Democrats' pork-laden
vote-buying bill than favor it.

2) The Rasmussen poll also showed that more Americans favor a tax
cut-only bill than favor what the Democrats have proposed. Such a bill
enjoys a 45% approval to a disapproval of only 34%. Among
"independents", those numbers are 46% approval and 35% disapproval.
Only Democrats still overwhelmingly approve of the Democrats' attempt
to load us and our children up with a trillion dollars' worth of debt.

Support tax cuts is massive. Fifty-seven percent believe that tax cuts
help the economy while only 17% believe they hurt. About the same
number of people (56%) believe that they pay more than their fair
share of taxes.

Keep up the pressure, TCOTers! Now is the time to start introducing
people to Senator Jim DeMint's "American Option" alternative plan.

Message from Va. AG Bob McDonnell




#RPVN #TCOT Bob McDonnell to resign February 20th!
Email I received today from McDonnell For Governor



Dear Friend,

Just a few minutes ago Bob McDonnell held a press conference in Richmond to announce that, in keeping with Virginia political tradition and in order to ensure that the Commonwealth's taxpayers have the full-time Attorney General they deserve during a campaign year, he will resign as Attorney General effective February 20th.

I can tell you this was the most difficult decision Bob has ever had to make. But better than me telling you, Bob thought you should hear it straight from him.

Please click LINK HERE to watch this important message:

This afternoon, I hope you will join us on our campaign site for a live blog at 3PM with Bob McDonnell.

He wants to take your questions about today's decision, and about the campaign ahead. Again, please visit our campaign blog to ask your question.

Sincerely,
Phil Cox
Campaign Manager


I can only say....GAME ON VIRGINIA!

Senate was wrong on #TARP, They are wrong on #Stimulus!



 
#TCOT

Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell delivers the Weekly Republican Address, responding to President Barack Obama's weekly address.

Sen. McConnell lays out the problems with the stimulus plan authored by Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid: "Turning aside Republican ideas, Democratic lawmakers in the House of Representatives produced a massive bill that many analysts say is unlikely to create new jobs or boost the economy anytime soon."

Sen. McConnell then discusses the Republican plan, which centers around an income tax cut for Americans in the 15% and 10% tax brackets, lowering those rates to 10% and 5%, respectively.


What Virginians can do:
Familiarize yourself with the bill: $850 Billion, 1588 pages, and counting... somebody needs to read it!
