Most voters on both sides of the political aisle are frustrated with the lack of movement in addressing the fiscal cliff, the sun setting of the Bush tax cuts, quantitative easing 3, and another debt limit increase in February. Many remember the debt increase battle in 2011 when Republicans finally folded and agreed to debt limit increase as long as they put in the Budget Control Act of 2011. This act was also know as sequestration or the mandatory cuts now looming.
Many Republicans are upset with their elected officials and are telling them to hold the line on their conservative principles. Republicans do not want their elected officials to cave and kick the can down the road when it comes to meaningfully addressing spending.
The Sarpy County Republican Party has thrown down the gauntlet and let their elected officials know where they stand on the fiscal cliff. Their fiscal resolution passed unanimously on December 6th and ratified by Sarpy County Republican Party Chairman Ken Ragland. A copy of that resolution can be found by clicking below.
