How to do this

Complete these steps by August 28

  1. 1

    Find your Representatives.

    To find your Representative, click here and enter your zip code. Your representative's name and contact information will be provided.

  2. 2

    Make the Call.

    Here's what to say on the call:
    Hello. I am a constituent of (insert Representative's name) from (insert city and state), and I'm calling to ask him/her to take action to reduce out-of-control federal spending. I'd like him/her to go on the record with the Coalition to Reduce Spending's pledge to Reject the Debt. This pledge commits them to vote against new spending unless it is offset elsewhere and to reject budgets that do not have a pass to balance. Hundreds of candidates and elected officials across the country have already committed to this simple first step to solving our budget crisis. Please do the right thing and go on the record to solve these problems.

  3. 3

    Follow Up.


    1. Email your Member of Congress

    Go to your member's website and find his or her email contact form. Send a brief email:

    My name is ____, and I am a constituent of your district since ______. I am writing to ask you to go on the record and pledge to Reject the Debt. You and I both know our country's out-of-control spending is the issue of this generation, and getting it under control is something all parties can and should get behind. Please do the right thing and go on the record to solve these problems.

    2. Contact your Member of Congress on social media

    Most Congressmen and women have Twitter accounts. You can search for your member here and tweet at them asking them to go on the record.

Let your elected officials know that you're paying attention to how they spend our money.

Contacting them via social media, email, and phone, reminds them who they answer to. Politicians know that, at the end of the day, they have a responsibility to their constituents. 

We are the ones who elected them. 

We are the ones who decide whether they get to stay.

Ask your member of Congress to commit not to spend more money unless it's paid for today, not passed on through debt.
