#KeepTheCaps Protest and FREE Food & Beverages!
Thursday, October 17, 2013 from 3:30 PM to 6:30 PM (PDT)
Please join National Taxpayers Union, The Hayride, and American Voice PAC in New Orleans as we demand that leaders in Washington maintain spending caps, eliminate budget deficits, and end the meteoric rise of our national debt!
We will gather outside Ernst Cafe at 3:30pm and walk four blocks toward Senator Landrieu's New Orleans office for a rally and protest. Shortly after, we will head back to Ernst Cafe for free food, beverages, giveaways, and more.
The time is now to get a grip on out-of-control national debt and spending.
Just two years after creating common-sense, bipartisan caps on federal spending, some politicians in Washington, including Louisiana Senator Mary Landrieu, are trying to change the law and undo these sensible, bipartisan caps so they can continue to play games with your tax dollars.
The modest spending restraint of 3 cents on the dollar, imposed by the Budget Control Act of 2011, is an important step in reining in our nation's out of control spending. So far, the sequester has been a success, with federal expenditures falling two years in a row – the first time since the end of the Korean War. Make your voice heard on October 17. Let's tell Senator Landrieu, President Obama, and the rest of Washington to Keep the Caps!

When & Where
National Taxpayers Union, The Hayride, American Voice PAC
Since it was founded over 40 years ago, National Taxpayers Union's number one job has been helping to protect every single American's right to keep what they've earned. Our guiding principle has always been: "This is your money and the government should return it to you." We are a nonprofit, non-partisan citizen group whose members work every day for lower taxes and smaller government at all levels.
Since its founding in December 2009, The Hayride has been Louisiana’s premier conservative political commentary site. We’re a group blog covering Louisiana and national politics and current affairs. Our work has been referenced by such national sites as Big Government, The American Spectator, Michelle Malkin, Hot Air, RedState and Townhall.com, among others.
American Voice PAC is more than an operation that raises money and buys ads promoting candidates. We will be actively educating the public in conservative principles and ideas, and turning those principles into concrete results – not just on Election Day, but within our political culture!
