JMJ . PRAY 4 R NATION . !
As Congress comes back into session this week, I wanted to give you a quick update on the status of our "Don't Raise the Debt Ceiling" petition drive. As of this morning, we have collected over 155,000 signatures from conservatives like yourself across the country who oppose taking on new debt.
I want to personally extend my appreciation to you for speaking out on this critical issue facing every American. However, I must be honest that to collect the additional 345,000 signatures in the next few weeks to reach our goal of 500,000, we must increase our efforts. Today, I'm urging you to immediately forward this email to 10 of your friends or family and ask them to sign the petition.
Your involvement in this issue is absolutely critical as there is enormous pressure building for Members of Congress from both political Parties to support taking on more debt. We must show these Members that a majority of Americans stand in opposition to more spending and more debt that will be passed on to our children and grandchildren.
Please take a minute to forward the "Don't Raise the Debt Ceiling"
today. Finally, a donation of $25 enables me to circulate this email to 10,000 additional like-minded activists. So, I ask that you follow this link to give $25 or more
to help me reach my 500,000 signature goal.
Thanks for your support,

Yesterday, as I watched a peaceful transition of power from one political Party to another, I was reminded of how blessed we are to live in a free country guided by our Constitution and our shared values and principles.
|500,000 I need your immediate help to collect 500,000 signatures on our "Don't Raise the Debt Ceiling" petition.
Sign the petition.
And now that the new Congress is officially in session, and a new majority has taken over the reins, it's time for action. It's time to roll back Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama's extreme and far-reaching legislation. It's time to cut spending, grow our economy, create jobs and reduce our nation's debt.
That's why I'm going on the offensive and I need your help!
As you know, I have launched a petition drive calling for Members to vote no on raising the debt ceiling. And as a result of your hard work, we've collected nearly 100,000 signatures for our "Don't Raise the Debt Ceiling" petition drive.
But, I know with your help, you and I can collect a lot more signatures.
Today, I'm issuing a challenge to conservative activists across the nation to help me collect more than 500,000 signatures from Americans in every corner of the country who oppose raising the debt ceiling. With a national debt of $14 trillion, our country cannot afford to dig ourselves deeper into a financial black hole.
I know this is no small task, and I'm going to need each and every person receiving this email to pitch in and do their part. Please follow this link to sign the petition right away.
After signing the petition, I hope you will consider making a donation of $25 or more to help us circulate this petition to 10,000 additional conservative activists asking for their signature. A donation of $100 can help me circulate this petition to an additional 40,000 activists!
Members of the establishment from both political parties are under enormous pressure to vote in favor of more debt and we must show them that a majority of Americans are against taking on any new debt we cannot afford. Our charge is to reduce our nation's debt, not raise it.
Collecting 500,000 signatures is an ambitious goal, but I'm no stranger to big goals. I started MICHELE-PAC to elect conservative candidates around the country who end Pelosi's rein as Speaker, and together we accomplished this goal!
But we must press forward, continuing to fight for our core beliefs and values as constitutional conservatives. We must not let members of either Party- Democrat or Republican- buckle under pressure. We must show them that Main Street can't afford more debt.
So I'm once again urging you to help me reach my goal of collecting 500,000 signatures on the "Don'... Your support really does make all the difference and I cannot thank you enough for taking the time to sign our petition.
Congresswoman Michele Bachmann
P.S. Future generations cannot afford the massive debt big spenders in Congress have accrued. We are just weeks away from a critical vote to raise the debt ceiling. Our national debt stands at $14 trillion and counting. We cannot afford any more debt and I need your help to collect 500,000 signatures for the MICHELE-PAC ... Your support is needed in this urgent fight for our conservative values. Please take action today!
