Club For Growth: Key Vote Alerts

Key Vote Alert - "YES" to King Amendment (#273)

04:41 PM | Link to Alert:


The Club for Growth urges members of the House to vote "YES" on the Rep. Steve King amendment (#273) to the FY11 continuing resolution (HR 1). This vote will be included in the Club for Growth's 2011 Congressional Scorecard.

The amendment would prohibit funds from being used to administer Davis-Bacon "prevailing wage" requirements with respect to any project or program funded in this bill.

These artificially higher wages, usually corresponding to union wage rates, would result in a higher cost to taxpayers, less return per dollar spent, and fewer jobs. It would also shield unions from much-needed competition.

Our Congressional Scorecard for the 112th 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.

UPDATE:  The House rejected this amendment, 189-233.

I'm glad the Club for Growth exists.

It has the right philosophy and the ability to put that philosophy in action.

The Club is like a well-trained prize fighter.

It has the right knowledge, skills, and tenacity to win the fight.
