Following the release of the House’s fiscal year 2017 budget resolution from committee, FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented:
“It’s disappointing that leadership isn’t willing to fight for even modest fiscal responsibility. After John Boehner and President Obama teamed up to break the spending caps, we had hoped that Republicans would unite to roll back those excesses. Instead, what we’re seeing is more of the same.”
“The House Freedom Caucus didn’t ask for anything outrageous, just a return to the Budget Control Act levels of last year. The fact that this is now a controversial position when Republicans control both chambers of Congress shows how far the party has drifted from its moorings.”
On Thursday, FreedomWorks issued a key vote against the fiscal year 2017 budget resolution.
