KEY VOTE ALERT
"NO" on CR/Debt Ceiling Plan

The Club for Growth urges all House and Senate members to vote "NO" on the Reid-McConnell plan to end the shutdown and raise the debt ceiling. Consideration of the bill will likely be today or tomorrow. The vote will be included in the Club's 2013 Congressional Scorecard.

This announced plan, the details of which aren't completely known, appears to have little to no reforms in it. There are no significant changes to ObamaCare, nothing on the other major entitlements that are racked with trillions in unfunded liabilities, and no meaningful spending cuts either. If this bill passes, Congress will kick the can down the road, yet again.

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.
