Washington, DC- Following news that Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid proposed a bill that would raise the debt ceiling, temporarily fund the government until January 15, and go to conference on the budget at a later date, FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe released the following statement:
“Republican leadership has completely lost its way. Not only is this proposal a full surrender- it’s a complete surrender with presents for the Democrats. Apparently Mitch McConnell’s idea of a ‘compromise’ is to increase the debt limit, fully fund a broken health care law, and promise talks of increasing spending down the road.”
“This bipartisan betrayal is the TARP Wall Street bailout all over again. The line separating the Democrats and the Republican establishment is fading- it might have disappeared today. This is about Washington insiders versus the rest of America now.”
FreedomWorks will issue a Key Vote “NO” against the McConnell-Reid capitulation plan, which will be scored on its 2013 economic scorecard.
