PLEASE READ THIS URGENT UPDATE. Your Senators are on the verge of ceding their constitutional authority and giving Obama almost unlimited power to tax. --Steve
Dear Friends of Liberty,
Our sources on Capitol Hill have informed us the Senate is working on a backroom deal to give President Obama nearly total control over federal spending for the rest of this fiscal year.
This is their "solution" to their self-created sequestration crisis.
Your Senators may be on the verge of ceding their constitutional authority to Obama and giving him virtually unlimited power over taxing and spending.
If this deal goes through, our "Radical-in Chief" will have almost unlimited power to raise taxes for the next seven months!
+ + GOP Senators Set to Betray Constitution!
Under this dirty, backroom deal, Obama would essentially be given full authority to raise taxes and set spending levels, because Congress would need a two-thirds vote on a "resolution of disapproval" to stop him (a near impossibility).
Top GOP Senate leaders have given their "tacit approval" to the plan, according to a Politico report that says "Republicans are now proposing that Congress surrender an important piece of its Constitutional 'power of the purse' for the last seven months of this fiscal year."
TRANSLATION: Your Senators would cede their constitutional duty and give Obama unconstitutional powers to RAISE YOUR TAXES with NO accountability.
+ + Doorstep Of Totalitarianism
This proposed action by the Senate, with the support of Republicans, borders on treason and brings America to the doorstep of totalitarianism.
This is a clear violation of the separation of powers -- Congress is constitutionally given the authority to tax and spend. The founders separated these powers because they lived under the TYRANNY of a king who had both legislative and executive powers.
Now, Senators stand on the verge of effectively returning us to the days of King George III. But this time, it will be "King Barack" who can tax us to his liking.
+ + URGENT ACTION NEEDED!
I'm calling on every patriotic citizen to take action right now and demand that the Senate NOT CEDE ITS CONSTITUTIONAL AUTHORITY TO OBAMA!
If you're outraged that the Senate is on the verge of giving the President unconstitutional authority to RAISE YOUR TAXES, go here now and immediately send your fax message to Congress.
I have instructed my team to get these faxes delivered directly to your two Senators along with the key Senators who are considering caving to the pressure from Obama and the Left.
If you prefer to send your own faxes, we've provided sample letters and all the fax contact information on the link above.
This is the height of cowardice. Instead of standing up to the big spenders on the Left, many GOP Senators are ready to roll over and give Obama almost unlimited authority to raise our taxes.
Please ...Take action right now by sending your faxes. Let the Senate know that their cowardly plan has been exposed and that you will NOT tolerate this unconstitutional action.
Thanks for the stand you're taking.
P.S. This dirty deal is expected to happen in the next few hours so your immediate action is vitally important. Please ... take a moment right now to schedule your faxes for immediate delivery and oppose the Senate's plan to give Obama the unconstutional authority to raise our taxes by clicking here or use the fax numbers below and send your own fax.
P.P.S. In addition to sending your faxes, PLEASE CALL your two Senators and let them know you are fully aware of this backroom deal to cede taxing authority to Obama. Phone numbers are provided below.

I'm outraged that Senators are on the verge of ceding their constitutional authority to Obama -- giving him virtually unlimited power over taxing and spending for the next seven months!
If this plan is approved, a two-thirds vote would be required to overturn the President's authority to tax and spend at his discretion.
Such a move borders on treason and brings our nation to the threshold of totalitarianism. It's also a clear violation of the separation of powers. The U.S. Constitution gives Congress sole authority to tax and spend. Our Founding Fathers did this because they lived under the TYRANNY of a king who had both legislative and executive powers. Giving this power to Obama returns us to the days of King George!
Don't cower. Stand up to the big spenders on the Left.
The very idea that Senate Republicans would even consider surrendering "its Constitutional power of the purse" for the remainder of the fiscal year borders on treason!
How dare you give Obama almost unlimited power to raise my taxes? This is a move born out of desperation - a "fourth and long" that is destined to push the collective faces of the American people further into the dirt, while Obama continues his mad-dash toward re-shaping our nation.
I urge you NOT to cede power and authority to Obama.
