Make Your Voice Heard
Monday, January 23 marks 1000 days the United States government has operated without a budget. In all that time, the Senate has failed in its primary function: assuring the fiscal viability of our government. For three years we have had to listen to our President and his Senate throw the blame on President Bush for every failure of the Obama administration. Well, in regard to this fiscal travesty, President Obama and the Democratic-controlled Senate can only blame themselves.
Anyone who has worked in management for a financial institution or a retail outlet knows how narrow the profit margin is. A budget is needed if one has any hope of survival. Actual results are compared to budget monthly and adjustments to budget items are made often to assure success. Of course, that is when you are operating with a profit margin of 1-2%. When your expenses exceed your income by 60%+, maybe you do not want the public to know what a poor job you are doing. A budget would only emphasize their ineptitude.
The word "survival" was mentioned in the above paragraph. One might also ask how long can our great country survive when our administration, year after year, spends so much more than it takes in?
It is time for Americans who are concerned about their country to take action. On January 23, call our two Senators and tell them you want a budget for our country and you want our government to live within its means. Tea Party Patriots from all over America will be calling their Senators on that day. Please help them flood the lines to Washington-and also call the local offices of our Senators. Here are the numbers.

We made some in-roads in the 2010 election by electing 8 new members to the NM House of Representatives. However, we must continue our fight against progressives and elect even more fiscal conservatives in 2012. We are asking for your support in the way of funding and volunteer work, to completely turn the tide in our state and help our new governor
"Take Back New Mexico!"
The Albuquerque Tea Party is planning and building for 2012 and we have to start now!
We cannot afford to sit back on our heels in an off-election year and have the forward momentum of 2010 be reduced to inaction!
We have many goals for the upcoming year and into 2012.
