Join America in Speaking Out

WASHINGTON, DC, June 15, 2010 | Kate Thompson ((202)225-3035)

Many Americans feel that the Democrat-controlled Congress is ignoring their voices. An overwhelming majority of East Texans tell me they are sick and tired of high taxes, rising debt, reckless spending and the completely partisan agenda that is out of touch with mainstream America.

Last week, House Republicans launched America Speaking Out, an interactive program to engage the American people in developing a new national policy agenda. Through America Speaking Out, the American people are empowered to directly engage in setting the priorities for a national agenda. Anyone can use America Speaking Out to submit ideas and discuss the ideas of others so that we will know the priorities of the people.

Republicans have offered and will continue to offer positive solutions to the challenges facing this country.  Washington needs to listen to the American people and incorporate their ideas and solutions, and America Speaking Out makes that process more efficient and accessible than ever. Together, we can prioritize policy solutions that strengthen our economy, fiscal responsibility, values, and security. America Speaking Out gives fresh voice to our nation’s enduring principles for freedom and democracy and puts Washington on notice that accountability in government will ultimately prevail.
