Key Vote Alert - House Farm Bill

KEY VOTE ALERT
The House Farm Bill (HR 1947)

Below are key votes relating to the House farm bill (HR 1947) that the Club for Growth plans to score. Consideration of the farm bill begins today. More key votes may be issued later. The votes on final passage and the listed amendments will be included in the Club's 2013 Congressional Scorecard.

"YES" on Pitts #13 Amendment - This amendment would enact modest reforms to the outrageous sugar program that unfairly benefits the sugar industry at the expense of consumers and other businesses.

"YES" on Radel #12 Amendment - This amendment would repeal the National Sheep Industry Improvement Center, which is nothing but a special interest handout financed by taxpayers.

"YES" on Chabot #43 Amendment - This amendment would repeal the Market Access Program, a trade-distorting program that unfairly benefits some businesses at the expense of others.

"NO" on final passage of HR 1947 - Even with passage of the above amendments, the House farm bill is so wasteful and so irresponsible that we are obliged to oppose it. It spends too much, reforms too little, and it maintains the "business as usual" mindset in Washington.

Our Congressional Scorecard for the 113th 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.

I saw Chris Chocola on FOXnews Sunday... my first opportunity to learn about CLUB FOR GROWTH!!  Exciting stuff!!
I joined the Club this evening and I'm already learning how many clowns are representing us in Washington!! Looks like about 60-40, clowns-to-Senators ratio!! Well, not like I didn't already know that but seeing it in graphic form confirms my Compassionate Conservative suspicions!
Joing The Club for Growth is surely the very best, most productive  thing I've done today!
