Stacy French - July 20th, 2017

Club for Growth and Tea Party Patriots launched a new website exposing the hypocrisy of 3 Republican Senators now blocking Senate Repeal Efforts.

These Senators all supported the 2015 Repeal Bill and spoke favorably of the bill and its 2 year replacement transition.  The only difference now?  There is a President Trump ready to sign it! screen-shot-2017-07-20-at-2-44-14-pm

WSJ Letter to the Editor: Garrett is the Right Man to Clean Up Ex-Im

Stacy French - July 20th, 2017

National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) President Jay Timmons’s “A Trump Disappointment for Manufacturers” (op-ed, July 12) slamming Scott Garrett, President Trump’s nominee for the U.S. Export-Import Bank, leaves readers with more questions than answers. But one issue that is made abundantly clear is the lengths to which Mr. Timmons will go to preserve crony capitalism.

Instead of questioning Mr. Garrett’s integrity, the better question is why does NAM so staunchly defend an entity that’s become synonymous with corruption and fraud.

Key Vote Alert – “YES” on The Motion To Proceed To 2015 Obamacare Repeal Bill

Andrew Roth - July 19th, 2017

The Club for Growth urges all Senators to vote on the motion to proceed that would allow the Senate to vote to largely repeal Obamacare, similar to what they did in 2015 with the Restoring Americans’ Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act (H.R. 3762).  This procedural vote is expected early next week.  The vote will be included in the Club for Growth’s 2017 Congressional Scorecard.

The Republican Party has promised voters for seven years to repeal Obamacare.  And they have been rewarded on Election Day, in part, because of that promise.  It is finally time to deliver on their pledge.  If Majority Leader Mitch McConnell allows the first amendment for consideration to be identical, or nearly similar to the 2015 repeal bill – he has stated he will –then failure to pass such a motion to proceed would be tantamount to supporting Obamacare.

Obamacare is crippling our economy and restricting our freedom.  It needs to be repealed immediately.

Our Congressional Scorecard for the 115th Congress provides a comprehensive rating of how well or how poorly each member of Congress supports pro-growth, free-market policies and will be distributed to our members and to the public.

Club for Growth Supports 2015 Repeal Obamacare Bill

Rachael Slobodien - July 18th, 2017

“This should be a slam dunk; the Senate already passed this legislation once.”

Washington, DC –Club for Growth President David McIntosh offered the following statement after Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announced his plans with regard to the Senate’s 2015 Obamacare repeal bill:

“Club for Growth applauds Leader McConnell’s promise to bring the 2015 Obamacare repeal bill before the Senate,” Club for Growth President David McIntosh.  “While the stories have already been written placing a nail in the coffin of repealing Obamacare, Club for Growth is not willing to retreat.  Here’s to hoping that the third time’s the charm.

“While short of perfection—the 2015 legislation leaves several Obamacare regulations in place—it is the best option Republicans currently have to begin to repeal Obamacare.  And this should be a slam dunk.  After all, Senate Republicans already passed this legislation once.

What’s changed between now and then is that in 2015 Republicans could hide behind President Obama’s veto.  Well, Obama is no longer president and Senate Republicans got exactly what they wished for: a Republican in the White House who will sign repeal legislation brought to his desk.  With the Obama impediment gone, moderate Republicans—most of whom supported the 2015 legislation—will now be forced to reveal their true colors.

“It was easy for moderate Republicans to grandstand and regurgitate fiery political rhetoric when they knew repeal efforts would go nowhere, but now they will have to do something politicians don’t often do.  And that is keep their promises.

Because it is vital for the overall goal of eventually repealing ALL of Obamacare, the Club for Growth is going to key vote in favor of the 2015 repeal bill.  The vote will be included in the Club for Growth’s 2017 congressional scorecard.
