Today, Club for Growth Action President David McIntosh provided the following statement in response to congressional candidate Kevin Hern’s ad attacking Club for Growth Action:
“It’s ironic that Kevin Hern is attacking Club for Growth Action for its support of Ted Cruz during the Republican presidential primary when Hern himself hired the very consulting firm that spent millions upon millions attacking Donald Trump,” stated Club for Growth Action President David McIntosh.
“This just goes to show the lengths Kevin Hern will go to as he tries to conceal the fact that he personally donated to the Democratic Senator who cast the deciding vote to pass Obamacare. And the cherry on top of this all is that Hern begged for the Club for Growth PAC’s endorsement. The bottom line is Kevin Hern can’t be trusted. He’ll say anything and worse, do anything to get elected. Oklahoma deserves better than Hern the Hypocrite.”

Today, Club for Growth Action announced it would be spending an additional $250,000 on broadcast and digital advertising to promote an ad exposing Russ Fagg’s record of being light on crime.
“Russ Fagg is trying to hide from the truth, and Montana’s voters deserve better,” stated Club for Growth Action President David McIntosh. “The truth is Fagg’s decisions while on the bench put Montanans at risk and made them less safe. It is important for Montanans to have all the facts when it comes time to vote, and that’s why Club for Growth Action is investing additional resources to ensure that every corner of the state knows that Russ Fagg is tough on victims and light on crime.”

Club for Growth Action
When Russ Fagg claims he protected Montana families, he’s not telling the whole truth.
After Matthew Green assaulted a child, choked his wife, and came at her with a knife, he faced 50 years in prison.
Fagg put him away for just five years.
The mom testified, “My children watched him beat me up for 45 minutes.”
Still Fagg cut 45 years off the maximum sentence.
Russ Fagg. He’s tough on victims.

A coalition of conservative leaders on Wednesday released essential principles that must guide any potential path forward for Congress to repeal Obamacare.
The group agreed on a set of principles that Congress must adopt in any health care legislation considered later this year or in the future. “The tax increases in Obamacare kill jobs and sap economic growth,” said former Congressman David McIntosh (R-IN), president of the Club for Growth. “Overwhelming numbers of conservative voters want Congress to repeal all of the Obamacare taxes, and not replace them with other taxes—and we agree.”
The conservative leaders reached consensus on critical elements for any Obamacare repeal, including repeal of Obamacare’s new federal health insurance requirements, all of Obamacare’s taxes, and the exemption provided to Members of Congress from Obamacare. They also outlined alternative policies conservatives should enact, including an expansion of Health Savings Accounts, reforms to the Medicaid program, and cross-state purchasing of health insurance.
The full compilation of the Health Insurance Reform Principles can be viewed here.
“We’ve seen encouraging signs in recent weeks that Congress hasn’t given up on the health care fight—and they shouldn’t,” said FreedomWorks President Adam Brandon. “Republicans ran in the past four election cycles on their promise to repeal Obamacare—and we’ve outlined how they can make that pledge a reality.”
“Obamacare undermines the principles of federalism, destroying states’ authority over their insurance markets,” said former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, president of of the Senate Conservatives Fund. “While some health care plans would give states back a tiny sliver of freedom by letting them waive a few regulations, we believe that Congress should restore states’ sovereignty over their insurance markets by repealing all of the new insurance requirements. Also, the administration has to respond to the 20-state lawsuit on Obamacare by June 7th. I am hopeful that President Trump will concede that Obamacare, as amended by the December Tax Reform Bill, is now unconstitutional – thereby jumpstarting Congress to get to work on this issue.”
“These principles represent a return to health care freedom,” said former Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC), chairman of the Conservative Partnership Institute. “I’ve always believed that Americans should have the ability to obtain quality, affordable health insurance coverage that they can buy, hold, and keep. With good conservative reforms like cross-state purchasing and Health Savings Accounts, this plan would bring those ideas closer to fruition.”
