"SIGN" WALSH LETTER OPPOSING MCCONNELL-REID
The Club for Growth strongly supports Rep. Joe Walsh's letter opposing the McConnell-Reid "Cut, Run, and Hide" plan. Additionally, the Club is key-voting the signing of this letter. Signers will receive positive points on the Club for Growth's 2011 Congressional Scorecard.
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, like a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution, that are necessary to solve our fiscal crisis. If it became law, it would jeopardize the country's Triple-A credit rating and our ability to re-start the economy.
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.

A group of us in Omaha, Nebraska have been working on creating almost this exact same PAC. When we saw CFG profiled on Fox Sunday, we were so excited. Why reinvent the wheel? It is so wonderful to know that many Americans are thinking the same thing we are. This is a fantastic platform to have our voice heard.- Gwenn Aspen, Omaha, NE
