Club for Growth to GOP Appropriators and Moderates: Now Is the Time to Act on President Trump’s Rescissions Package

Rachael Slobodien - May 22nd, 2018

Today, Club for Growth President David McIntosh issued the following statement encouraging Republican Leadership in the House to bring H.R. 3, President Trump’s rescissions package, immediately to the House floor for a vote:

“The clock is ticking on President Trump’s bold rescissions package,” stated Club for Growth President David McIntosh.

“Big government GOP appropriators and moderates are holding up the President’s rescissions plan because they are addicted to spending.  Republican leadership needs to bring the proposal (HR 3) to the floor immediately and force the appropriators and moderates to make a decision.  Are they with Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats?  Or are they with President Trump and the American people who want smaller government?  It’s their choice.

“It’s long past time for the GOP to get its fiscal house in order, and President Trump’s rescission plan provides the perfect mechanism to do exactly that.  The time to act is now.”

Club for Growth Action Unveils “Pelosi” Ad in TX-21

Rachael Slobodien - May 15th, 2018

Today, Club for Growth Action announced the release of a 30-second ad that will begin airing on broadcast throughout Texas’s 21st Congressional district; the ad exposes the weakness of Matt McCall’s candidacy.  This is an additional $140,000 expenditure on top of an existing ad buy.

Upon release of the ad, Club for Growth Action President David McIntosh remarked, “There is a reason that Matt McCall was decimated the past two times he ran for Congress.  He has demonstrated he’s not a viable candidate.  Given how close Pelosi and the Democrats may be to gaining control of Congress, Republican voters simply cannot afford to leave this race in the hands of a weak candidate like McCall.”

To watch CFG Action’s television ad, “Pelosi,” click here.  The transcript of the ad is included below.

Pelosi

Matt McCall just might make Nancy Pelosi Speaker of the House.

McCall has run for Congress twice before. He got swamped.

With Democrats so close to controlling congress, if McCall loses again… Hello, Nancy.

And McCall must know he’s weak, ‘cause now he’s using the same fake news attacks against Chip Roy that liberals use against Donald Trump. 

McCall for Congress? Pelosi for Speaker.
