Following passage of the Obama-Boehner budget deal, FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented:
“John Boehner, in his last act as Speaker, betrayed not only conservatives but all Americans. With the national debt already at $18.5 trillion, he just handed President Obama a blank check to plunge us further in the red. It’s telling that every Democrat voted for this monstrosity and only 79 Republicans. Today, Boehner stood with Nancy Pelosi, Barack Obama, and Harry Reid against the conservative grassroots activists who worked so hard to help Republicans win the House of Representatives.”
On Tuesday, FreedomWorks announced our opposition to the Obama-Boehner budget and expressed our intention to double-weight the vote on our 2015 Congressional Scorecard. In just 24 hours, FreedomWorks activists made more than 4,300 calls urging their representatives to oppose the budget deal.
FreedomWorks aims to educate, build, and mobilize the largest network of activists advocating the principles of smaller government, lower taxes, free markets, personal liberty and the rule of law. For more information, please visit www.FreedomWorks.org or contact Jason Pye at JPye@FreedomWorks.org.
