Key Vote Alert - "NO" on the Budget Control Act of 2011

KEY VOTE ALERT
"NO" ON THE BUDGET CONTROL ACT OF 2011

The Club for Growth strongly opposes the most recent version of the Budget Control Act of 2011 that was negotiated by the White House and congressional leaders. We expect a vote on this proposal will take place in both chambers as early as today. This vote will be included in the Club for Growth's 2011 Congressional Scorecard.

The problems with this proposal are many, but fiscal conservatives should have obvious concerns for the lack of guaranteed future spending cuts, no requirement that a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution be sent to the states, a commission that could still recommend job-killing tax increases, and worse of all, two debt limit increases totaling over $2 trillion within only a matter of months.

As we’ve said before regarding previous underwhelming debt ceiling bills, this simply doesn't fix the country's fiscal problems. We strongly oppose it and we urge a NO vote.

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

Club for Growth is an organization who gives the truth about your elected officials. As a seasoned political activist and operative, I only work for candidates who stay true to the conservative principles of a limited government. If a candidate doesn't have a chance at getting an endorsement from CFG PAC because of their liberal fiscal voting record, then I refuse to support or work for them. It is groups like the Club for Growth who will be a true watch dog and call out elected officials when they don't walk the line.
