Washington, DC –In light of President Donald Trump’s imminent announcement to remove the United States from the Paris climate agreement, Club for Growth President David McIntosh offered the following statement:
“Today, the Club for Growth applauds President Trump’s forthcoming decision to begin the process of withdrawing the United States from the Paris climate agreement,” said Club for Growth president David McIntosh.
For far too long the Obama Administration allowed foreign governments and alarmist environmentalists to dictate, not only climate change policy, but worse our nation’s economic policy. President Trump’s decision sends a strong message to the environmentalist movement: no longer will the United States be strong armed by their scare tactics intended to harm our economy and inhibit economic growth.
With this announcement, President Trump takes a significant step toward putting American taxpayers and businesses back in the driver’s seat. We encourage the President to continue to take actions that will unleash economic growth and create more American jobs and opportunities.”

“The Paris climate agreement threatens to harm American economic growth.”
Washington, DC –Club for Growth president David McIntosh, in remarks prepared for delivery today in Chicago at the American Coatings Association’s Spring Leadership Council, will urge the Trump Administration to begin the process of withdrawing the United States from the Paris climate agreement:
“The Paris climate agreement threatens to harm American economic growth,” said Club for Growth president David McIntosh. “President Trump was right during his campaign when he pledged ‘…to cancel the Paris Climate Agreement and stop all payments of U.S. tax dollars to U.N. global warming programs.’ The Paris Agreement undermines the Trump agenda of restoring economic growth and creating more American jobs.”
McIntosh also contends that the agreement will increase litigation over environmental regulations and will hinder the President’s promise to cut regulatory costs on American businesses.

“Without changes negotiated by House conservatives, countless Americans would be assured of still paying more for health insurance in 2018 and 2019.”
Washington, DC – Club for Growth president David McIntosh released this statement following House passage of the American Health Care Act:
“Republicans owe a debt of gratitude to conservatives for greatly improving the AHCA and getting Obamacare repeal on a path that will finally offer the chance to lower insurance costs for millions of Americans,” said Club for Growth president David McIntosh. “Two months ago the AHCA was going nowhere, precisely because it didn’t address the GOP promise to go after the drivers of higher costs. But, conservatives negotiated major improvements in the repeal of Obamacare’s taxes, the ending of the Medicaid expansion, and the opportunity to cut consumer costs by letting states waive onerous Obamacare regulations. Without those changes, the AHCA would have left countless Americans still paying more for their health insurance in 2018 and 2019. The work of House conservatives, and the ongoing work of Senate conservatives, will continue to move us toward Obamacare repeal and replacement.”

“The AHCA is not a perfect bill, but it does offer means that would make health insurance more affordable for working-class families.”
Washington, DC – Club for Growth president David McIntosh released the following statement about the current status of health care reform in the House of Representatives:
“As health care reform is being driven into a ditch by misinformed polls, slanted news coverage, and painful and emotional personal stories, this fact is being lost: Millions of Americans who have been buying their own health insurance have experienced annual double-digit premium increases, and they can’t afford the weak coverage they’ve gotten under Obamacare,” said Club for Growth president David McIntosh. “The American Health Care Act is not a perfect bill, and we’ve been vocal about our criticisms, but let’s be clear: It does offer means that would make health insurance more affordable for working-class families. It does preserve protections for people with pre-existing conditions to get coverage, and it does create a new high-risk pool structure to ensure that even the most chronically ill patients are protected. Conservatives have worked hard to get to a place where more Americans will finally get the benefit of being able to choose more coverage that won’t shatter their budgets, and it’s time to pass the bill and send it on to the Senate.”
