FreedomWorks Responds to Boehner’s Attacks on Conservative Groups

Washington, DC- FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe released the following response to the Ryan-Murray budget deal, and House Speaker John Boehner’s recent comments smearing fiscally conservative groups:

“Speaker Boehner’s real problem here isn’t with conservative groups like FreedomWorks, it’s with millions of individual Americans who vote Republican because they were told the GOP was the party of small government and fiscal responsibility.”

“Once again Republicans, led by John Boehner, are working with Democrats to increase spending yet again on the taxpayers’ tab while promising ‘savings’ down the road. We know how this movie ends. How can leadership credibly promise spending cuts later, after agreeing to a plan that rolls back the sequester savings promised two debt increases ago? There’s a predictable pattern here.”

“FreedomWorks has Key Voted against the Ryan-Murray budget disappointment, and will continue driving thousands of messages to Congress to demand a budget that contains serious long-term spending and entitlement reform.”

FreedomWorks is a grassroots service center to a community of over 6 million activists who believe in individual liberty and constitutionally-limited government. For more information, please visit or contact Jackie Bodnar at
