Andrew Roth - January 14th, 2014
KEY VOTE ALERT
“NO” on the FY14 Omnibus (Senate Amdt. to HR 3547)
The Club for Growth urges all members of Congress to vote “NO” on the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2014 (Senate Amdt. to HR 3547). Consideration of the plan will likely be later this week. The vote will be included in the Club’s 2014 Congressional Scorecard.
This 1,582-page “omnibus” proposal is the product of the flawed Ryan-Murray deal that canceled part of the sequester last month in an effort to increase spending now. It funds ObamaCare, plusses up other wasteful programs, and contains dozens of policy riders that can only be described as earmarks. Instead of finding bipartisan ways to spend more money, Congress should be focused on cutting spending so that the federal budget can be balanced as quickly as possible. This bill does not achieve that goal.
Our Congressional Scorecard for the 113th 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.
