About the Petition
During the summer of 2011, the Tea-Party lead Congress decided to hold American debt hostage by refusing to increase the amount of money the United States is allowed to borrow. This hostage taking nearly ruined the good faith and credit of the United States.
Fast-forward to January 2013 and the Tea-Party Congress is at it again. This time, Republicans are seeking to push Americans to the edge in order to gain drastic cuts on programs working families rely on, and political capital. The debt limit is a self-imposed entity, as in Americans can abolish it with no economic repercussions, allowing Congress to act without the fear of the far-Right holding America hostage.
Tell Congress to stop using America’s debt as a political tool. Abolish the debt limit.
