Prosperity Alert: December 2011

Take Action – Three ways to get involved!

Header

Step 1:

Tell President Obama to stop using taxpayer funds to benefit his political donors!
President Obama spent $535 million of taxpayer stimulus money to prop up Solyndra, a solar panel company run by his political campaign contributors. Even though Department of Energy and White House staffers warned that the company’s business model would never work, the loan was rushed out the door anyway. Now that Solyndra has gone belly up, taxpayers are left holding the bill.

When government steps in to pick winners and losers based on politics, it opens the door to even more cronyism. As we’ve already seen with Solyndra, government betting taxpayer dollars on unproven technologies is a very bad deal. A restrained federal government that doesn’t have taxpayer cash to spread around is essential to stopping the cronyism that’s ruining our markets. Click here to view AFP’s TV ad regarding Solyndra, and to sign the petition now!

Step 2:

Tell Congress to Cut Spending Now!
The federal government has a spending problem and everybody knows it. This year, the federal budget will run more than $1.5 trillion in deficit, and more than 40 percent of every dollar we spend is borrowed. Click here to take action now. Tell your legislators that it’s time to Cut Spending Now!

Activist of the Month – Jonathan Okray

55123_Okray-Recall-Petition-1BWhen the City of Killeen, Texas, chose to give the fired City Manager a $750,000 golden parachute at the taxpayers’ expense, Jonathan Okray was incensed. Okray – a 20-year Army veteran and Killeen resident – organized a citizen-driven effort to hold the city council accountable, which has lead to a recall election being called on five of the city council members.

Okray is AFP’s Activist of the Month for standing up to outrageous government corruption. Thank you, Jonathan!
