I just sent a letter to Congress about this using our "Cap The Debt" campaign. The hardwired letter to Congress for that campaign reads . . .
Do NOT raise the debt ceiling ever again.
I added the following personal comments (which you can borrow) . . .
Don’t raise taxes either. Tax increases are used to increase spending. They’re NOT used to balance the budget or reduce the national debt.
* When Reagan agreed to tax increases in 1986 the national debt continued to rise.
* When the elder Bush agreed to tax increases in 1991 the same thing happened.
Don’t try to scam us. We know the truth. Tax increases AREN'T used to balance the budget or reduce the national debt!
Instead, maintain the debt ceiling and you can balance the budget right now.
Then, forward this message to others. Ask them to send a protest to Congress too.
