Key Vote Alert - "NO" on Unemployment Insurance Extension

Posted on Apr. 02, 14 | 01:56 PM by Andrew Roth | Topic: Key Vote Alert Senate
KEY VOTE ALERT
"NO" on Unemployment Insurance Extension

The Club for Growth urges all Senators to vote "NO" on the deal to extend unemployment benefits for five months, including retroactively to the beginning of the year (Senate Amdt 2874 to HR 3979). A vote is expected later this week. The vote on final passage will be included in the Club's 2014 Congressional Scorecard.

The Club has two large concerns with this bill. First, extending unemployment benefits will encourage continued unemployment on the margin. Washington's inability to pass pro-growth reforms that will lead to job creation is no excuse to create further government dependency by passing this bill. Second, this proposal is "paid for" with fee increases and accounting gimmicks, not real reductions in government spending.

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.

Club for Growth Statement on McCutcheon Decision

Posted on Apr. 02, 14 | 11:44 AM by Barney Keller | Topic: Cap and Trade
Here's the Club's statement on the McCutcheon decision today:

Washington, DC - The Club for Growth issued the following statement in reaction to the Supreme Court decision McCutcheon v. Federal Elections Commission that invalidated the aggregate limits on campaign contributions: 

“This is a great day for the First Amendment, and a great day for political speech,” said Club for Growth President Chris Chocola. “With Citizens United and now McCutcheon, the Supreme Court has continued to restrict the role of the federal government in limiting and regulating speech. We hope further efforts to increase the ability of citizens to participate in our democracy are also successful.”

Key Vote Alert - "NO" on the House Flood Bill (HR 3370)

Posted on Feb. 25, 14 | 09:19 AM by Andrew Roth | Topic: Key Vote Alert House

KEY VOTE ALERT
"NO" on the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act (HR 3370)

The Club for Growth urges all House members to vote "NO" on the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act of 2014 (HR 3370). A vote is expected later this week. The vote on final passage, and/or any procedural votes, will be included in the Club's 2014 Congressional Scorecard.

This bill unwinds, and in part repeals, the much-needed Biggert-Waters reforms to the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Unfortunately, this shows that House leadership is uncommitted to the limited government reforms that they themselves supported just two years ago. Voters can only conclude that the House leaders' decisions are either schizophrenic or unprincipled. Finally, rather than continue this unfair program that is hostile to liberty and limited government, Congress should end the NFIP and return the flood insurance industry back to the private sector.

Who’s Lost Credibility Now?

Posted on Feb. 13, 14 | 02:08 PM by Barney Keller | Topic: Cap and Trade
In the National Review today, Club for Growth President Chris Chocola takes house GOP leadership to task for abandoning all pretense of principle on the heels of their decision to put a "clean" debt limit increase on the floor:

Let’s review: The Republicans voted for the sequester. Then they spent two years talking about how they didn’t want the sequester. Then, they got rid of it, and replaced it with the Ryan–Murray budget. Then, they got rid of some of the cuts from the Ryan–Murray budget. At the same time, they went from wanting a constitutional Balanced Budget Amendment in exchange for raising the debt limit, to “dollar-for-dollar” cuts, to nothing.  
 
And their rationale for this essentially boils down to “we have to take the Senate,” never mind the fact that regardless of the caucus counts, the Senate (and the House) will still be populated by a bunch of RINOs who apparently have no real interest in saving America from fiscal ruin.

Key Vote Alert - "NO" on Clean Debt Ceiling Increase

KEY VOTE ALERT
"NO" on Clean Debt Ceiling Increase (S. 540)

The Club for Growth urges all Senators to vote "NO" on the upcoming clean debt ceiling increase (S. 540). A vote could happen later today. The vote will be included in the Club's 2014 Congressional Scorecard.

Supporters of this clean debt ceiling increase deserve a direct flight to Sochi, Russia, to receive a gold medal in fleecing the American taxpayer and racking up billions more in national debt.

Key Vote Alert - "NO" on Clean Debt Ceiling Increase

KEY VOTE ALERT
"NO" on Clean Debt Ceiling Increase

The Club for Growth urges all members of the House to vote "NO" on the upcoming clean debt ceiling increase. A vote is expected later tonight. The vote will be included in the Club's 2014 Congressional Scorecard.

When we heard that House leadership was scheduling a clean debt ceiling increase, we thought it was a joke. But it's not. Something is very wrong with House leadership, or with the Republican Party. This is not a bill that advocates of limited government should schedule or support.
