·        Americans for Prosperity Message: For the first time in a long time, Congress actually made genuine, substantive spending reductions rather than more accounting gimmicks and empty promises of future cuts. While these cuts are not perfect, this should be recognized for the important victory that it is! After spending weeks predicting doom and catastrophe, the White House now appears to have greatly overplayed their hand. One of the more outlandish claims came from the President himself when he said, “Starting tomorrow, everybody here, cleaning the floors at the Capitol. They’re going to have less pay. The janitors, the security guards. They just got a pay cut. They’ve got to figure out how to manage that. That’s real.” The bizarre comment prompted an email from the Architect of the Capitol to employees assuring them that, no “We do not anticipate furloughs for AOC employees (janitors and security guards) as a result of the sequester.” In the face of such blatant, and frankly heartless, political grandstanding, Speaker Boehner and the GOP deserve thanks and credit for their gutsy stand, and the broader free-market movement deserves credit for making sure they felt supported to do the right thing. You can email your member of Congress right now to let them know that you appreciate their hardwork to keep some limits on government or let them know that you wish they would cut government spending.
