McClintock: TARP, Silent Majority Speaks Out

Here are two of Congressman McClintock's blog postings. They are fantastic, and I want to share them with you. It truly is a treat to have at least one Conservative in Congress!

******************************
Rep. McClintock Introduces Bill That Allows Banks To Repay TARP Funds.

This week Rep. Tom McClintock introduced legislation that allows banks to immediately pay back Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) funds to the U.S. Treasury. Banks which were pressured to accept TARP funding are now facing serious obstacles, uncertainty and continued government control in their efforts to return the funds to taxpayers.

The Silent Majority Is No Longer Silent.

Here is an excerpt from Rep. McClintock's speech at the Sacramento Tax Day Tea Party.

Our opponents seek to portray us as angry taxpayers. No, we are not angry taxpayers. We are resolute Americans. And today, we here highly resolve that the liberties defended on far-off battlefields by ten generations of American patriots and heroes will not be casually thrown away here at home – not on our generation's watch.

We are here because we, as a people, are awakening to the danger of a government that spends too much and borrows too much and taxes too much, because we know what that means.

We know that you can't spend your way rich.

We know that you can't borrow your way out of debt.

And we know that you can't tax your way to prosperity.
