Key Vote YES on Enforcing "Pay-as-you-go" in the "Doc Fix"

As one of our over 6.9 million FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your senators and ask them to vote YES on the Lee amendment to H.R. 2, the “Medicare Access and CHIP Reauthorization Act”.

Senate Budget Vote-a-Rama Today: Track the Best and Worst Amendments Here!

Before the Senate takes a final vote on their Republican budget proposal (S.Con.Res. 11), they will have voted on dozens of amendments.
