Key Vote Alert
“NO” on FY18 Omnibus
The Club for Growth opposes the FY18 Omnibus 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.
It’s hard to see how any member of Congress – liberal or conservative – can vote on this 2,232 page deal less than 24 hours after the contents were made public. On top of that, this monster proposal simply fulfills the budget-busting deal that GOP leaders made with the Democrats last month. Voting for it would only affirm one’s support for permanent trillion dollar deficits.
It further entrenches Obamacare and its onerous regulations on hardworking Americans. It funds Democrat priorities and throws American taxpayers under the bus. The American people deserve better than being saddled with trillions upon trillions of dollars of debt.
This plan is just plain madness. The Club for Growth strongly opposes this omnibus legislation and encourages every Member in the House and Senate to oppose it as well.
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.
