Spending just got personal, the video

September 30, 2010

Numbers don’t lie. And we’ve got our finger on the public pulse:

Seven out of ten voters say government spending is too high and 68 percent say spending is affecting them personally, according to a bipartisan ten-state poll we sponsored. Fans told us they love the infographics we made to visualize the poll’s key findings. So we made a video taking the graphics to the next level.

Send the video to your elected official using our online tool by clicking here. Together we can show Washington that the public has spoken: political stripes no longer matter on this issue, we’re fed up with government overspending.

Also: hundreds from our online community have taken the poll themselves. See how your views match up with them and the rest of the country. Click here to weigh in now.

    This website is like a doctor who tells a lung cancer patient that if he stops smoking his cancer will go away.

    The damage is already done, the system has been looted. The banksters got away with the money and left you holding the bag and a bill of goods.

    Sorry, there is no way out of this. Cut spending and see what happens. I guarantee you will see the largest economic mushroom cloud in the history of the world.

    My interest is in the transparency of the motivation of the persons who stand behind this site.

    Are you in favor of repealing the Bush tax cuts to start paying down the deficit, or are you in favor of cutting government programs, or both? Are you looking for a wedge issue to attack Democrats, despite your initial statements? Where is the funding for your site coming from?

    It seems to me you have an obligation to the public to those who watch your nationwide advertising and take your invitation to visit this website– an obligation to reveal who you are and what political interests you represent. I would like to know if the description from another blog below is accurate: that Gretchen Hamel is in fact the principal, and she is in fact a former Bush Administration official, and she is in fact a Republican public relations specialist:

    Public Notice
    Former Bush Admin. Spox Launches Non-Profit To Combat ‘Over-Spending’
    Zachary Roth | March 3, 2010, 10:00AM

    Gretchen Hamel, former Bush administration spokesperson
    A former Bush administration PR specialist has launched a new non-profit designed to raise the alarm about what it sees as “over-spending” in Washington — but is staying mum on how the group is being funded.

    Public Notice launched late last month with a column on the website of US News and World Report, in which executive director Gretchen Hamel argued that “[b]ackroom deals, trillion-dollar deficits, pork-laden spending bills, and multibillion-dollar bailouts have left many Americans wondering if Washington can be trusted with their money.” The group’s sophisticated-looking website, Bankrupting America, adds that “unprecedented government spending and debt, corporate welfare, higher taxes, and poorly designed bureaucratic red tape are undermining economic progress,” and contends that the stimulus bill has been a failure.

    Scare tactics? It is obvious to 68% of us that the ship of state is sinking and DC is following the Sacramento model of tax and spend to make the vocal minorities less unhappy while living like American Royalty. This is what animates the Tea Party and that rushing sound you are going to hear on Nov. 2 is the flow of American values as stated on every US coin, flowing back into DC.
