Tell President Obama to End the Bush Tax Cuts

There is an epic showdown coming next month as our country faces the "fiscal cliff" -- the Bush tax cuts will expire and major budget cuts will be triggered automatically. President Obama backed down on the Bush tax cuts in December 2010, but fresh from winning re-election, we need to make sure he keeps his commitment to end them. We helped put him in the Oval Office twice now, and we need to make sure he knows our priorities.

House Republicans refuse to help the millions of Americans out of work. They want to keep the economy in the gutter through next year's election. Speaker Boehner won't even hold a vote on the American Jobs Act! We need to make him. Join the Courage Campaign and hold Republicans accountable.

Help build an army for accountability -- support Issa Watch

Just a few months into our campaign to hold House Government and Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa accountable to his constituents and the American public, and already the San Diego County Republican Party has gone into full-attack mode against the Courage Campaign. When I published an Op-Ed challenging Issa's record, it unleashed a barrage of e-mail blasts, blog posts, and letters to the editor smearing us for daring to challenge the GOPs newly minted “Attack Dog in Chief.”

Darrell Issa: It's time to disclose who you meet with

Sunlight is the best disinfectant. And after the Citizens United decision opened the floodgates for corporate money to influence politics, transparency is needed more now than ever.

Tell Rep. Issa he owes us a hearing.

When Rep. Issa took the reigns of the Oversight Committee, he promised a hearing a day. But he cancelled a hearing on the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission (FCIC) at the last minute because his staff found documents that "didn't fit the narrative." We don't need a narrative to investigate this issue. Sign this letter to Issa to demand a hearing.

Tell Rep. Issa: Return Your Earmarks!

No member of Congress should use his or her position to increase personal wealth, but that is exactly what Rep. Issa did. He secured $815,000 in earmarks to improve neighborhoods where his family holds real estate investments.
