With the Obama-Boehner budget coming up for its key cloture vote in the Senate, FreedomWorks Legislative Affairs Manager Josh Withrow commented:
“We applaud the principled conservatives like Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Mike Lee, and Marco Rubio who are standing strong against the Obama-Boehner budget deal. The Budget Control Act was the one accomplishment of congressional Republicans that actually limited growth of government under President Obama. Breaking the spending caps in this law is a red line that no believer in limited government should be willing cross.”
FreedomWorks will double-weight the cloture vote in the Senate on our 2015 Congressional Scorecard.
