Key Vote Alert – "SIGN" Walsh Letter Opposing McConnell-Reid Plan

KEY VOTE ALERT

“SIGN” WALSH LETTER OPPOSING MCCONNELL-REID

The Club for Growth strongly supports Rep. Joe Walsh’s letter opposing the McConnell-Reid “Cut, Run, and Hide” plan. Additionally, the Club is key-voting the signing of this letter. Signers will receive positive points on the Club for Growth’s 2011 Congressional Scorecard.

The McConnell-Reid plan, as public reports have revealed, is completely devoid of fiscally conservative principles. Congress abdicating its responsibilities by giving the President the authority to raise the debt ceiling is a non-starter. The plan also lacks structural budget reforms, like a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution, that are necessary to solve our fiscal crisis. If it became law, it would jeopardize the country’s Triple-A credit rating and our ability to re-start the economy.

Our Congressional Scorecard for the 112th 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.
