 Club for Growth President Chris Chocola: “House Republicans have already said that they are willing to allow sequestration to occur, and Senate Republicans should follow their lead.”  

Washington, DC - The Club for Growth issued the following statement on the proposal to replace the sequester offered by Senator John McCain (R-AZ), Senator Lindsay Graham (R-SC), and Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH): 

“Pushing off spending cuts that Congress promised to make is simply wrong.”  said Club for Growth President Chris Chocola. “Fiscal conservatives should insist that the full amount of cuts are made now, and should oppose replacing them with promised cuts that could be abolished by future Congresses. House Republicans have already said that they are willing to allow sequestration to occur, and Senate Republicans should follow their lead. Republicans should keep the promise they made when they helped pass the Budget Control Act into law.”
