Americans for Prosperity visiting district offices | Events
COLUMBUS, GA - The GEORGIA chapter of the free market grassroots group Americans for Prosperity will join a huge coalition of conservative and tea party organizations in a nationwide effort to visit U.S. House Members’ district offices. The grassroots message this coalition will carry is that representatives must support a balanced budget amendment to U.S. Constitution that has spending caps and a requirement for a supermajority vote to raise taxes.
“Our grassroots are really worked up about the need for this balanced budget amendment, with tough limits on spending and taxes. State and local governments all need to work each year to bring their books into order and it’s long past time that the federal government take similar steps,” said GEORGIA State Director Virginia Galloway. “We’re going to visit our federal representatives’ district offices because they need to know how important this amendment is to free market grassroots activists all across this country.”

When: Thursday, July 14, 2011 at 12:00 Noon.
Who: Americans for Prosperity Grassroots Activists
Where: Congressman Sanford Bishop Columbus Office, 18 Ninth Street, Suite 201, Columbus, GA
