FreedomWorks Statement in Response to Congressional Republican Leadership’s Support for Proposed Budget Deal

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to support from congressional Republican leadership for the recent budget deal, Jason Pye, FreedomWorks Vice President of Legislative Affairs, commented:

"Republicans who go along with this budget deal will lose all credibility on spending. This budget deal is ludicrous. The GOP has been misleading the American public on spending for years now. Yeah, they talk a great game on the campaign trail. But when it’s crunch time, they fold."

“There’s no question–Republican leadership shamelessly supporting a budget-busting deal and using the false fear of military atrophy as their cover is dishonest to Americans and disrespectful to our armed forces."

"We are the land of the free and the home of the brave, but Republican leadership in Congress has proven to be anything but ‘brave’ when faced with a simple question: Should we or should we not bankrupt America?"
