It's hard to believe, but true: Tea party members of Congress are proposing selling our treasured national parks!
Former Rep. Cliff Stearns made their goals very clear when he said, "We don't need more national parks in this country. We need to actually sell off some of our national parks."
He's not alone. Michele Bachmann has called for drilling in the Everglades, and Jason Chaffetz held a hearing to sell 3.3 million acres of public land. Three other 2012 presidential candidates -- Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, and Ron Paul -- also suggested selling off our public lands.
With budget negotiations coming, your members of Congress need to hear from you. Take action below to tell them our national parks are not for sale!
