Open Letter to Congress: Strengthen Fiscal Controls

The Coalition to Reduce Spending is proud to sign on to a coalition letter urging Congress not to forget the “true tax,” as Milton Friedman famously characterized runaway spending and debt.

The letter is cosigned by 15 organizations: Coalition to Reduce Spending, ALEC Action, Center for Freedom and Prosperity, Council for Citizens Against Government Waste, Defense Priorities Initiative, DownsizeDC.org, FreedomWorks, Heritage Action for America, Independent Women’s Forum, Independent Women’s Voice, Market Institute, National Taxpayers Union, Taxpayers for Common Sense, Taxpayers Protection Alliance, and Tea Party Nation.

In a time when the scheduled expiration of the only spending limits in a generation is fast approaching, this letter could not be timelier. It does not demand specific policy, but rather urges members of Congress to strengthen fiscal controls and not lose ground on those already in place.

We’re thrilled to be part of this crucial effort and urge every member of Congress to take note and seek solutions to the challenge of our generation.
