With the election over, liberals are returning to Capitol Hill this week for a lame duck session of Congress. These liberal congressmen—those who lost as well as those who were reelected—want to claim the election was a mandate to ram through their radical plans. On their agenda: half a trillion dollars in new taxes to go into effect on January 1, crippling cuts to defense, more big-government spending, and a massive expansion of the welfare state.
To paraphrase Ronald Reagan, more government isn’t the solution to this crisis—it is the problem. And now you and your fellow citizens can send the lame duck congressmen a message: Do not compromise on conservative principles and America’s best interests!
Heritage Action for America believes Congress should work for America’s best interests—not manage its decline. And during the coming crucial weeks, we and our 300,000-strong conservative grassroots army will:
“Heritage Action is the political muscle that turns conservative policy ideas into conservative realities on Capitol Hill.”
“The Heritage Foundation has for years had great ideas and good policy, but it’s time that there’s more horsepower behind those ideas. And that’s what Heritage Action has been doing across the country, getting people more informed and engaged and organized and registered to vote.”
—Senator Jim DeMint
“I support Heritage Action for America. I write about them, I give them money, I sign up for their emails. You should too.”
—Erick Erickson, RedState.com
