Here is a copy of the petition and what it states…If this makes sense to you…go sign the petition.

Citizens’ Petition to
Speaker John Boehner and GOP Leadership
WHEREAS:  For every dollar that Congress spends, a whopping 40-cents must be borrowed – leading to an increase in the federal debt limit five times in the last ten years, and
WHEREAS:  Explosive deficit spending crowds out private-sector job creation and makes more people dependent on government, reducing the self-reliance of the American people, and
WHEREAS:  I firmly believe that Americans elected a Republican majority to the U.S. House of Representatives in order to reverse reckless spending, not expand it, and
WHEREAS:  Americans elected scores of Tea Party candidates in a clear protest against the massive bailouts of the Obama administration and the Pelosi/Reid Congress, and
WHEREAS:  Years of government spending to pay people not to work has done nothing but increase joblessness and debt, and
WHEREAS:  Increased debt devalues the U.S. dollar, robbing the value of my assets and every American’s assets, and
WHEREAS:  I believe Congress should start living within its means the way millions of working families have to,
NOW THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED THAT:
Congress should NOT raise the debt ceiling so it can continue its habit of massive deficit spending, AND FURTHER, I instruct my Member of Congress to vote “NO” on raising the debt ceiling and instead get to work immediately to cut spending.
