KEY VOTE ALERT

“NO” on FY19 Defense-Labor-HHS-CR bill (HR 6157)

The Club for Growth opposes the Defense-Labor-HHS-CR bill (HR 6157) and urges all members of Congress to vote NO on it.  A vote is expected soon in both chambers.  The vote will be included in the Club’s 2018 congressional scorecard.

The Club has two main objections to this bill. First, it reaffirms the budget-busting deal that Congress passed earlier this year.  It completely ignores the trillion dollar annual and perpetual deficits that are fast approaching.  Second, the bill ignores spending cuts recommended in the White House’s FY19 budget – including the elimination of several programs in the Department of Education and the overall funding level for the National Labor Relations Board.  In typical DC fashion, politicians in both parties settled their differences by just spending more money.

When we opposed the budget-busting deal in March, we summarized the bill as “plain madness”.  This new bill just doubles down on that characterization.

Our Congressional Scorecard for the 115th 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.
