Club for Growth Ad Spotlights McGinty’s Support for Higher Taxes

Doug Sachtleben - September 20th, 2016

“McGinty is the consummate self-dealing liberal politician who benefits personally from big-government cronyism.”

Washington, DC – The Club for Growth announced the launch of a 30-second television ad that highlights Katie McGinty’s support for tax increases. The six-figure ad buy begins airing tomorrow on broadcast television in Harrisburg, Johnstown and Altoona.

“Katie McGinty loves tax increases like Philadelphians love a good cheesesteak,” said Club for Growth President David McIntosh. “McGinty is the consummate self-dealing liberal politician who benefits personally from big-government cronyism. That’s why she constantly supports taking more from hard-working taxpayers. The Club for Growth wants to make sure Pennsylvania voters know that Katie McGinty would push for massive self-serving tax increases in Washington just like she did in Harrisburg.”

Club for Growth Calls for No Export-Import Bank Lifeline on Funding Bill

Doug Sachtleben - September 15th, 2016

“This is cronyism working behind the backs of the American people to protect more cronyism.”

 

Washington, DC – Club for Growth president David McIntosh released the following statement in response to reports that some Members of Congress want to attach language to a must-pass government funding bill that would give the Obama Administration a larger role in approving deals made by the Export-Import Bank:

 

“This is cronyism working behind the backs of the American people to protect more cronyism,” said Club for Growth president David McIntosh. “It’s no secret that the Export-Import Bank is simply Washington bureaucrats providing favors for a handful of big corporations. And, when Washington insiders don’t like the rules they’re forced to live by – including rules that limit how much Ex-Im can put taxpayers on the hook for – they change the rules. Congress should not be a party to any effort to use the insider game of attaching language to a Continuing Resolution (CR) funding bill in order to create those new rules that give more power to the Obama Administration. As Chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, Senator Richard Shelby (AL) has blocked previous attempts at throwing Ex-Im a lifeline, but he’s facing opposition from both sides of the aisle. The CR process is almost always a mess, with Members of Congress habitually looking to load up the bill with their pet projects. House Speaker Paul Ryan needs to hold the line. He’s opposed the Export-Import Bank before and he should make it clear that there will be no Ex-Im riders on the CR.”

Update on AZ-05 Race – State of the Recount

Stacy French - September 07th, 2016

The Republican Primary in Arizona’s 5th Congressional District was held on August 30. Nearly 86,000 votes were cast and Club PAC-endorsed candidate Andy Biggs holds a 9-vote lead over Christine Jones. That margin will trigger an automatic recount once the election is certified. All indications from recent recounts in Arizona show that the electoral system there is extremely accurate and the final tally isn’t likely to change.

9-12-16 UPDATE –  Biggs’ lead widens to 16 votes

Paid for by Club for Growth PAC and not authorized by any candidate or candidate’s committee. 202.955.5500
