KEY VOTE ALERT
"YES" on RSC Budget
The Club for Growth strongly supports the Republican Study Committee's FY12 budget and urges members of the House to vote "YES" on it. We expect the bill to be considered as early as this week. This vote will be included in the Club for Growth's 2011 Congressional Scorecard.
This proposal helps correct the country's fiscal problems by balancing the budget within ten years, fully repealing ObamaCare, enacting pro-growth tax reforms, and reining in out-of-control entitlements.
Among the bill's most important details include the $300 billion spending decrease in FY12 from FY11, the prohibition of earmarks, the elimination of direct farm payments, block-granting Medicaid, lowering the corporate tax rate to 25%, and giving people the option to purchase private health insurance instead of using the traditional Medicare program.
Without a doubt, these are sensible pro-growth reforms that will make our economy stronger, keep inflation at bay, and dramatically improve our fiscal outlook. We will be key-voting passage, but we also strongly urge members to co-sponsor this vital legislation.
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.
