Key Vote Alert - "YES" on the RSC Budget

"YES" on the RSC Budget

The Club for Growth urges all House members to vote "YES" on the Republican Study Committee's FY13 alternative budget. The House may consider it on the floor as early as this week. A vote on this plan, and perhaps procedural votes, will be included in the Club's 2012 Congressional Scorecard.

Unlike the Ryan Budget, the RSC plan balances within five years and it complies with the sequestration cuts outlined in the Budget Control Act of 2011.

The RSC budget also implements some strong, pro-growth reforms. It flattens the tax code, ends the Death Tax, and lowers the corporate rate down to 25%. It also privatizes Fannie and Freddie, and reforms the farm program. It eliminates wasteful and unneeded agencies, block-grants both Medicaid and SCHIP, and permanently ends earmarks, among other things.

Overall, it puts the federal budget on a path to balance in a few years, and it fulfills the government's pledge to enact spending cuts already in the law. It's a pro-growth, fiscally responsible budget that should be supported by all House members.

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.


From Club Members

I strongly support and endorse The Club For Growth's philosophy and positions on limiting the role and cost of government to its  legitimate functions. I'm sick and tired for capitalism being blamed for economic problems caused by government. The mantra of separation of economics and government should be shouted from the rooftops! The Club for Growth makes this statement clearer and more powerful than any organization that I'm aware of.
