Key Vote Alert – "YES" on Permanent Earmark Ban

Mr. Andrew Roth - February 02nd, 2012


“YES” on Toomey Permanent Earmark Ban (Amdt #1472)

The Club for Growth urges all Senators to vote “YES” on Toomey Amendment #1472 to the STOCK Act (S. 2038). The bill is currently being considered on the Senator floor and we expect a vote on the amendment to take place later today. A vote on this amendment will be included in the Club’s 2012 Congressional Scorecard.

Earmarks are bad policy and bad politics. Congress needs to end them permanently.

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.
