Following news that Republican leadership is cutting a deal to break the budget caps, FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented:
"The spending caps are the only meaningful reform to reduce the size of government passed since Republicans took the House in 2010. Busting the caps, for whatever reason, is simply unacceptable. Republicans are supposed to be the party of less government."
"This is just more of the go along get along ways of Washington. They’re out of touch with the American people. We want to see spending reined in, not increased. Have they looked at the national debt recently?"
"When Harry Reid says ‘Hallelujah’ to lifting the budget sequester caps, you know that McConnell has gone too far. Just because Boehner resigned, it doesn’t give him free rein to surrender to Obama. How does leadership expect Members to go back to their districts and tell their constituents guess what? I just voted to spend more! It’s not going to work."
