Key Vote Alert – “YES” on the Rescissions Package

  |  

KEY VOTE ALERT

“YES” to the Spending Cuts to Expired and Unnecessary Programs Act (HR 3)

The Club for Growth supports the Spending Cuts to Expired and Unnecessary Programs Act (HR 3) and we urge all members of Congress to vote YES on it. A vote is expected in the House later this week, with a vote in the Senate expected after that. This vote will be included in the Club’s 2018 congressional scorecard.

This is a straightforward issue that should have bipartisan support. As the bill’s name indicates, there are expired and unnecessary programs within the federal budget that should be eliminated, thus saving the taxpayers money and cleaning up the waste in Washington. This proposal includes 38 rescissions worth almost $15 billion across several federal agencies.

On Capitol Hill where budget gimmickry is a routine matter, this spending – if left alone – could be used to offset more spending elsewhere – thus turning unused spending into real spending. So while this rescissions package is modest in size, it will help reduce the “money laundering” that is common practice in Washington.

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.
