Key Vote Alert - "YES" on Cut, Cap, and Balance & "NO" on Cut, Run, and Hide

KEY VOTE ALERT
"YES" ON CUT, CAP, AND BALANCE ACT
"NO" ON MCCONNELL-REID "CUT, RUN, AND HIDE"PLAN

The Club for Growth strongly supports the Cut, Cap, and Balance Act and urges all members of Congress to support it (S. 1340/H.R. 2560). The Club also strongly opposes the McConnell-Reid sellout plan that purportedly gives the Executive Branch the authority to raise the debt limit. Both of these votes will be included in the Club for Growth's 2011 Congressional Scorecard.

The Cut Cap and Balance Act contains the best budget reforms to solve our country's fiscal situation. It makes real and immediate spending cuts, it places a hard cap on spending over the next few years, and it makes the debt ceiling increase contingent on Congress passing a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution.

Conversely, the McConnell-Reid plan, as public reports have revealed, is completely devoid of fiscally conservative principles. Congress abdicating its responsibilities by giving the President the authority to raise the debt ceiling is a non-starter. The plan also lacks structural budget reforms that are necessary to solve our fiscal crisis.

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.
