Club for Growth President Chris Chocola: “Fiscal conservatives shouldn’t trust any Senator from either party on this issue unless there is a public agreement to avoid these anti-growth tactics.”

Washington, DC – The Club for Growth today urged Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans to object to going to conference on the FY14 budget unless an agreement is made to exclude tax increases or a debt limit increase:

“Supporters of big government in the Senate want to craft an anti-growth budget deal behind closed doors that would raise taxes and increase the debt limit,” said Club for Growth President Chris Chocola. “Senator McConnell and Senate Republicans should stand with Senators Lee, Cruz, and Paul and demand that anti-growth tax hikes and trillions of dollars in new spending and debt are kept out of the budget process. Fiscal conservatives shouldn’t trust any Senator from either party on this issue unless there is a public agreement to avoid these anti-growth tactics.”
