Key Vote Alert: “YES” on Cruz Amendment to FY13 CR



“YES” on Cruz Amendment to FY13 CR

The Club for Growth urges all Senators to vote “YES” on the Cruz amendment to defund ObamaCare in the FY13 continuing resolution (HR 933). Consideration on the amendment could happen next week. This vote will be included in the Club for Growth’s 2013 congressional scorecard.

As we have written in previous key vote alerts, ObamaCare betrays the principles of limited government and individual liberty that our Founding Fathers relied on when they crafted the Constitution.

In an unprecedented move by the federal government, it forces private citizens to buy a private good. It hinders economic growth, raises taxes and massively increases the size of government through more spending and more regulation.

Our Congressional Scorecard for the 113th 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.
