Just Say No to Congressional Slush Funds

Realizing spending was getting out of hand, Congress passed the 2011 Budget Control Act to cap spending on both defense and nondefense discretionary spending. However, Congress being Congress, they have become adept at finding ways to increase spending beyond the caps without technically going above the caps.

Key Vote NO on Using Emergency Funding to Expand the Broken VA Health Care System

As one of our over 6 million FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your senators and ask that they vote NO on the Comprehensive Veterans Health and Benefits and Military Retirement Pay Restoration Act, S. 1982. Sponsored by Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT), this bill would add to the burden of the already dysfunctional Veterans’ Affairs (VA) system, and abuses wartime emergency funding to do it.
