How the US Spends More And Taxes Less

“What we are missing is a process to get those reforms implemented. Our current system has not worked to get the job done. We need a new bipartisan process, such as the Bipartisan Fiscal Task Force I have proposed with Senator Gregg (R-NH), that can lead us to a real legislative outcome." Senator Kent Conrad of North Dakota

“The time for talking about our long-term spending problems is over, and we must now shift to making the tough decisions on how we bring about reform. I remain committed to working with my colleagues in Congress and the Administration to help move legislation that will help us reach the goal of a solvent and secure economic future. An excellent place to begin work on this goal would be legislation such as the Bipartisan Task Force for Responsible Fiscal Action that I introduced with Sen. Conrad, which would put needed solutions on a fast-track to Congressional action.” Senator Judd Gregg of New Hampshire

Famed Washington journalist Robert Novak called him a "hero."He was recently ranked as the Senate's most conservative member by National Journal and as the No. 1 senator voting for responsible tax and spending policies by the National Taxpayers Union. DeMint understands the greatness of a country is found in its people and values, not in its government
Republican Leader of the House, John Boehner House Republican Leader and a staunch opponent of pork-barrel politics, John is fighting to eliminate wasteful spending, create jobs, and balance the federal budget without raising taxes. He has challenged Republicans in the 111th Congress to be not just the party of “opposition,” but the party of better solutions to the challenges facing the American people. Under the new House GOP leadership team John leads, House Republicans have formed “solutions groups” to develop principled alternatives on the issues that matter most to American families and small businesses, and launched the GOP State Solutions project, an initiative aimed at bringing reform-minded Republicans at the state and federal levels together to promote common-sense solutions from outside the Beltway.
