Key Vote Alert – “NO” on the Tax Extenders Bill (HR 5771)
KEY VOTE ALERT
“NO” on the Tax Extenders Bill (HR 5771)
The Club for Growth urges all members of Congress to vote “NO” on the tax extenders bill (HR 5771) or any other bill that includes the tax extenders legislation that the House is set to consider this week. The vote on final passage as well as procedural votes could be included in the Club’s 2014 Congressional Scorecard.
This legislation is mainly a hodge-podge of special interest earmarks in the federal tax code. Thankfully, these extenders expired at the end of 2013, so the best thing Congress can do now is nothing. House and Senate leaders should cancel consideration of this bill and instead call for broad, pro-growth tax reform that will lower rates and remove other burdensome carveouts in the tax code. This will help revitalize our economy and spur innovation. For more information on the Club for Growth’s position, please see this WSJ op-ed written earlier this year by Club President Chris Chocola.
