FreedomWorks Key Votes “NO” on the Fiscal Responsibility Act

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to the legislation agreed upon as a result of the debt ceiling negotiations, FreedomWorks key votes “NO” on the Fiscal Responsibility Act. Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:

“With the national debt nearing $32 trillion, this legislation will continue to fuel out of control government spending and propel us faster toward the $50 trillion of debt our nation is expected to reach by 2030. The Fiscal Responsibility Act would increase the debt ceiling by $4 trillion and does little to rein in wasteful spending. Americans live with the consequences of Washington’s inability to get its fiscal house in order daily, and they are tired of the status quo and empty promises. The legislation does not meet the moment, and I urge House Republicans to reconsider their support and take a stand to stop reckless spending.”
