Sean To GOP: “Get A Spine!”
“This is not what we voted for!” Sean said angrily after rumors that GOP congressmen may be wavering on their stance for debt reduction. “This is why Republicans were elected. I’m sick and tired of being lectured by the most irresponsible fiscal president in American history about getting down to business and solving the debt problem that he created. Now we’ve got McConnell, Coburn and Saxby Chambliss and whoever else is getting wobbly here. This is a moment of truth…a moment of principal. This is why you Republicans were hired. You’re going to have to get a spine and toughen up here!” Sean said. Sean encouraged his audience to call the Senate switchboard at (202) 224-3121 and demand that Republicans stand strong against the “Anointed One.”
'Moment Of Truth' For Republicans In Debt Debate
Sean was joined by Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) to discuss the GOP’s stance on the debt ceiling debate. The lawmaker explained his position on the looming debt deadline. “I'm not going to vote to raise the debt ceiling unless we address what got us in debt to begin with. The president talks about a big deal. This is the real deal. Cuts never come in the near term but under this plan they would. You would cut the government beginning next year. Cap the deficit -- cap spending 10 years to wipe out the deficit and have a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution to provide discipline to the Congress. How many people believe that the Republican and Democratic Party, without some change in the way we do business, is ever going to balance the budget? So, the president wants to do big things, support a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution requiring all of us appeared to do what every American has to do, balance the budget.” Watch Sean’s int erview with Senator Graham by clicking right here.
Senator Jim DeMint
U.S. Senator from South Carolina, Jim DeMint, joined Sean on the NewsMaker Hotline to discuss the debt ceiling debate. “Cut, cap and balance is the only plan on the Hill that will protect our credit rating. The House is going to pass that bill tonight and send it over to the Senate. We can’t give up trying to balance the budget because that’s like giving up on our country,” DeMint told Sean. The senator did not have kind words for Congress. “The Congress is going to bankrupt our country Sean,” DeMint said. “I know I sound like a broken record, but this plan that cuts spending now and caps it over ten years and lets the states decide about a balanced budget is the only reasonable plan on the Hill.” You can listen to Sean’s entire interview with the senator by clicking right here.
