WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to the House Freedom Caucus (HFC) and the Republican Study Committee’s (RSC) formal opposition to the proposed budget deal, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:
“This budget deal is abysmal, and fiscal conservatives in the House Freedom Caucus and Republican Study Committee know it, too. Thankfully they are ready to be leaders in standing up against a horrific ‘deal,’ because elected Republican leadership sure is not.
“So-called Republican ‘leadership’ should be ashamed that they even considered this deal in the first place. Apparently, they would rather take the coward’s route and bankrupt the nation against all principles. Fortunately, true fiscal conservatives can look to leadership outside of ‘leadership’ for their guiding principles, thanks to the HFC and the RSC.”
