Club for Growth President Chris Chocola on "Moderates" in Congress

Posted on Aug. 08, 12 | 09:13 AM by Barney Keller | Topic: Club in the News
 Club for Growth President Chris Chocola has an Op-Ed today in the New York Daily News on "moderates" in Congress following Ted Cruz's victory in last week's Texas Republican Primary: 

Immediately following Ted Cruz’s victory in the Republican primary for the U.S. Senate in Texas last week, a television ad by my organization’s Super PAC, Club for Growth Action, was deemed the “single most important” ad in the race. That ad repeated a single charge over and over again — namely, that Cruz’s opponent, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, was a “moderate.”

We’re glad that people noticed, because Congress needs fewer “moderates” and more people willing to adhere to principle and work to fix our fiscal mess.

Club for Growth To Track Spending Cut Votes With New Scorecard

Posted on Jun. 14, 12 | 09:48 AM by Barney Keller | Topic: Club in the News
The Club for Growth today launched a new Spending Cut Scorecard designed for members of the public and Club Members to track how members of the House of Representatives are voting on amendments to cut spending from the FY13 appropriations bills. In the past, the Club for Growth tracked amendments to cut earmarks from appropriations bills, but recently noticed that many House members who ran on promises to cut spending have abandoned their pledges to do so.
 
The Club will include clean spending cut amendments and will update the Spending Cut Scorecard following the passage of every appropriations bill. To view the new Spending Cut Scorecard, click here: www.ClubForGrowth.org/SpendingCutScorecard 
 
Thus far, interesting statistics from the Spending Cut Scorecard include:
20 members of the House have voted for every amendment to cut spending. All are Republicans.
50 members of the House have voted against every amendment to cut spending. 49 are Democrats. One is a Republican (Bonner).
The average Republican voted for spending cuts 59% of the time.  Republican Freshman are only slightly better at 60%.
The average Democrat voted for spending cuts 6% of the time.
The nine Republicans, including four freshmen, who have least often voted to cut spending are: Bonner 0%, Meehan 4%, LaTourette 4%, Bass 4%, Simpson 4%, Lucas 4%, King, P. 4%, Grimm 4%, and Dold 4%
The eight Democrats who have most often voted to cut spending are: Matheson 32%, Rush 31%, Kucinich 30%, Polis 28%, Cooper 20%, McIntyre 17%, Velazquez 17%, and Honda 17%
 
In a press release announcing the scorecard, Club President Chris Chocola said: “It is good news that Congress is finally talking about spending cuts, but our review of voting records show that we have a long way to go if we’re going to achieve smaller government,” said Club for Growth President Chris Chocola. “It’s important that Americans hold their members of Congress accountable for their votes and the Club for Growth intends to continue to make it easy for them to do so.”
 
“The Club continues to be disappointed, in particular, by the big spenders in the Republican Party. With a $16 trillion debt, voting to keep discretionary spending in appropriations bills is simply kicking hard choices into the future and passing the buck to future generations. House Leadership is clearly not pushing its conference to vote for spending cuts offered on the floor,” added Chocola.
