Video: Stop Pointing Fingers

Bankrupting America, a project of Public Notice, has released a new video showing the continued dysfunction in Washington.  The video is a call to action for Americans to get involved by calling their Senator urging them to ‘stop pointing fingers and do their job’.


FACT SHEET: The Budget Games:

The Last Passed Budget Resolution

The last time Congress completed the budget process was on April 29, 20091.

  • The House passed the conference report for the budget on April 29, 2009, by a vote of 233 – 1932.
  • The Senate passed the conference report for the budget on April 29, 2009, by a vote of 53 – 433.

Economic Snapshot

Today, 5.3 million Americans have spent over 27 weeks looking for work.4 Additionally, since President Obama took office in 2009, the public debt has increased nearly 45% as of this date, it has increased 47 percent to be exact.  (To be clear, we rounded down to 45 percent in the video.)5.

Yesterday, Bankrupting America  launched a  hashtag campaign calling on the Senate to pass a budget. The hashtag: #DuringTheLastBudget is  used to identify items or events that did not exist when the last budget was passed. Below are a few examples:

#DuringTheLastBudget

- The iPad had not been invented

- Bruno Mars had never released an album

- No one had ever heard of Rebecca Black

- Charlie Sheen was still on Two and a Half Men

We all know, the MSM will not hold their feet to the fire – it’s up to every day Americans to to get involved. If you have a Democrat Senator, call him/her and and demand an explanation.

    The Democraps can’t afford to pass a budget, today, tomorrow or even any time this year. If they do they will be crucified, just as they are attempting to crucify Ryan about his.

    The difference is, they would be crucified for the tax increases, the only way they know how to “increase” revenues (which has never, ever worked, but don’t try to explain that to a Democrat – his/her head will explode.)
