C4L President John Tate Blasts House GOP Plans to Cave In to Obama and Reid on Debt Ceiling

SPRINGFIELD, Virginia- Campaign for Liberty released the following statement from C4L President John Tate today blasting House GOP leadership after they announced a debt ceiling plan that indicates the GOP retreat will continue when they return to Washington:


“The Republican retreat was only supposed to last a week, but now it appears it will last the entire 113th Congress. With a $16 Trillion national debt, it is the very definition of insanity for so-called ‘fiscal conservatives’ to hand President Obama – the biggest spender in our nation’s history – a blank check to continue his irresponsible spending and pile even more debt on the backs of our nation’s children.  The GOP’s preemptive surrender to President Obama and Harry Reid’s demands, allowing an increase in the debt ceiling without any real spending cuts, is further evidence why the American people are right to have absolutely no confidence in their elected leaders. As the House GOP is one of the few defenses the American people have against President Obama’s runaway spending, it is way past time for Speaker Boehner and the rest of the House GOP Leadership to listen to the American people, stand up, and finally say, ‘Enough!’”
