FreedomWorks Statement in Response to House Republicans Support for a Continuing Resolution Deal

Washington D.C. – In response to efforts between the House Freedom Caucus and Main Street Caucus to negotiate a continuing resolution deal to avoid a government shutdown, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks president, commented:

“The proposed CR represents a strong consensus between conservatives and moderates in the House Republican Conference. We support the negotiated spending cuts and urge all members of the House to get behind the CR. However, we need to recognize that discretionary spending is less than a third of all federal outlays, and we need Republicans and Democrats to come together to solve the inevitable debt crisis that’s coming.”
