Key Vote Alert – House – “NO” BLOATED BUS THAT DEFUNDS CHARTER SCHOOLS

  |  

The The Club for Growth opposes the H.R. 4502, the partisan “Bloated Bus” appropriations bill. A vote is expected soon in the House. The results of this vote will be included in the Club for Growth Foundation’s 2021 congressional scorecard.

H.R. 4502 is a massive appropriations bill that funds Democrats’ socialist wish-list of policies that would be detrimental to our country. Rather than have 7 separate debates on each subcommittee’s appropriations bill that funds a constitutionally limited government, House Democrats have capitulated to the radical left and offered a combined “Bloated Bus” bill that stands no chance at becoming law and is merely a messaging bill they will fundraise off in August.

Perhaps most offensively, the bill defunds federal funding for charter schools throughout America, revoking educational opportunity for millions of students. This is an act of betrayal to families seeking an alternative to the public education institutions that have failed them and trapped students in bad schools. The bill also funds Critical Race Theory in higher education which teaches students that people are racist based on skin color and that America is a racist country. Moreover, this bill expands federal funding for food stamps, includes hundreds of millions of dollars in earmarks, funds billions of dollars in key pillars of the Green New Deal, and expands the IRS’ ability to target conservatives.

In less than one week, the debt limit suspension will expire. House Democrats does not care. They have no solution to the debt and deficit problems plaguing America. Club for Growth calls on Members of Congress to refocus legislative efforts toward a positive economic growth agenda that unleashes economic opportunity through decreasing anti-competitiveness through excessive regulation, reduces the over-taxation of individuals and businesses, and promotes free markets through trade. Congress should pass a Balanced Budget Amendment that ensures this debt limit increase is the last debt limit increase. Finally, end expanded federal unemployment benefits that discourage a return to work and allow for the full re-opening of the U.S. economy.

Club for Growth Foundation’s Congressional Scorecard for the 117th 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 the public.
