FreedomWorks Statement in Support of House Freedom Caucus Opposition to Spending Caps Agreement

WASHINGTON, D.C. — FreedomWorks supports the House Freedom Caucus’ opposition to a potential deal between Congressional leadership that would bust the discretionary spending caps. Jason Pye, FreedomWorks Vice President of Legislative Affairs, commented:

“We applaud the House Freedom Caucus for its bold position against another deal between Democratic and Republican leadership to bust the discretionary spending caps. Any spending caps deal would likely push the budget deficit for this fiscal year over $1 trillion. Rather than busting the spending caps again, Republicans should be working to develop solutions to address growing entitlement programs and sending a loud message that they will cut discretionary spending.”
