The Club for Growth will be scoring the following amendments during the debate on the Senate budget resolution (S. Con. Res. 8). These votes could be considered as early as today. These votes will be included in the Club's 2013 Congressional Scorecard.
- "YES" on the Ron Johnson (#212) Amendment to bar the use of federal funds to bail out state and local governments that are defaulting on their debts.
- "YES" on the Thune Amendment (#307) to fully and permanently repeal the Death Tax.
- "YES" on the Flake Amendment (#225) to establish a point of order to strike earmarks from future legislation.
- "YES" on the Lee Amendment (#374) to unwind the Export-Import Bank.
Also, since there are over 300 possible amendments that could be swiftly considered, the Club for Growth, as always, reserves the right to retro-score any and all amendments. Therefore, if your office has any questions on any of the amendments, please call us to get our opinion.
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 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!
