Key Vote Alert - "NO" on the Budget Control Act of 2011

KEY VOTE ALERT
"NO" ON THE BUDGET CONTROL ACT OF 2011

The Club for Growth strongly opposes the most recent version of the Budget Control Act of 2011 that was negotiated by the White House and congressional leaders. We expect a vote on this proposal will take place in both chambers as early as today. This vote will be included in the Club for Growth's 2011 Congressional Scorecard.

The problems with this proposal are many, but fiscal conservatives should have obvious concerns for the lack of guaranteed future spending cuts, no requirement that a balanced budget amendment to the Constitution be sent to the states, a commission that could still recommend job-killing tax increases, and worse of all, two debt limit increases totaling over $2 trillion within only a matter of months.

As we’ve said before regarding previous underwhelming debt ceiling bills, this simply doesn't fix the country's fiscal problems. We strongly oppose it and we urge a NO vote.

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.

 

From Club Members

I have not searched out the history of my family, but I do know that from my great Grandfather who fought for the union in the Civil War to my oldest son who is nearing retirement from the Army; many generations of my family have fought to defend this great country and help build it to where we are today. It is terrible to see the direction our arrogant President and legislators are forcing us to travel. I depend on The Club for Growth to articulate and fight for the same ideals I believe in. Great work! I will continue to support those ideals with my vote and campaign contributions sent through the Club For Growth PAC.
Thank You,
Chuck Sayles
