Today, Club for Growth President David McIntosh issued the following statement in response to news reports that President Trump is “very strongly” looking at nominating Larry Kudlow to serve as the Chairman of the National Economic Council at the White House:
“Larry Kudlow would be a tremendous pick to lead the President’s National Economic Council,” stated Club for Growth President David McIntosh. “Club for Growth praises President Trump for his ability to attract top talent to join his staff; Larry Kudlow is only the most recent example of this. At his core, Larry is a free-market, pro-growth advocate, and he would be a valuable asset and adviser to President Trump. It would be a masterful appointment if the President gives Larry the nod.”

Today, Club for Growth President David McIntosh issued the following statement in response to discussions about steel and aluminum tariffs:
“The idea of imposing steel or aluminum tariffs of any kind is an affront to economic freedom,” stated Club for Growth President David McIntosh. “First and foremost, it’s bad for the American worker. For every steel worker job that might be saved because of a tariff, our country will lose even more American jobs in auto plants, construction, and so many other industries.
“Tariffs will also harm the pro-growth effects of the tax cuts, stall the economy, incite a trade war, and help hand the election to the Democrats.
“We urge the Trump Administration not to impose tariffs that could threaten to undo the historical economic growth the tax cuts and the President’s deregulatory agenda have unleashed.”

Washington, DC – Today, Club for Growth President David McIntosh offered the following statement upon news of House Republicans’ interest in bringing back earmarks:
“If Republicans bring back earmarks, then it virtually guarantees that they will lose the House, stated Club for Growth President David McIntosh.
“Bringing back earmarks is the antithesis of draining the swamp. Earmarks will only benefit the special interests that grow government at the expense of working men and women.”

Club for Growth’s Statement on the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act
Washington, DC – Today, Club for Growth President David McIntosh offered the following statement ahead of votes in the House and Senate on H.R. 1, “The Tax Cuts and Jobs” Act:
“Club for Growth congratulates members of the House and Senate conference committee for their work in delivering strong pro-growth tax reform the American people,” stated David McIntosh.
“The tax reform bill will unleash great economic growth and prosperity. And while this legislation embodies the most significant changes made to our tax code in thirty years, there’s no reason we have to wait for another thirty years to enact additional reform.
“In fact, with respect to the individual and major pass through businesses, this bill falls far short of pro-growth expectations. For that reason, Congress should take up a new tax bill next year to complete the work by:
- Having a real 25 percent maximum rate for businesses organized as subchapter S corps or LLCs, rather than artificial exclusions for sectors like financial services, and unfairly excluding 80 percent of business income from the pass-through rate.
- Making permanent the temporary tax cuts for individuals.
- Eliminating the death tax.
- Repealing fully the Alternative Minimum Tax.
- Cutting capital gains taxes to spur individual investments.
- Repealing fully the taxes in Obamacare.
