KEY VOTE ALERT

“NO” on Trump-Democrat Debt Ceiling Deal

The Club for Growth opposes the Trump-Democrat debt ceiling deal and urges all members of Congress to vote NO on it.  A vote is expected this week.  The vote will be included in the Club’s 2017 congressional scorecard.

This deal includes unfunded disaster relief, a “clean” debt ceiling increase, the reauthorization of several unnecessary and/or unconstitutional programs, and a “kick the can down the road” continuing resolution.  None of this is good policy.  It is simply a scheme to delay the consideration of making tough decisions.

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.
