Congress Should Cut Defense Costs with BRAC Round Six

Responsible spending is not something Congress has proven itself to be good at, under Republican or under Democratic leadership. The Bipartisan Budget Act, the absolutely atrocious cap-busting deal proposed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R- Ky.) and Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) which busts the Budget Control Act caps by more than twice what the previous two deals combined did, proves this.

Key Vote NO on the Bipartisan Budget Act

On behalf of our activist community, I urge you to contact your senators and representative and ask them to vote NO on the Bipartisan Budget Act. The bill would bust the spending caps by $296 billion over two years, spend an additional $80 billion or more in disaster relief, provide for $160 billion in the defense/nondefense slush fund, and suspend the debt limit through 2018. The proposed offsets are little more than budget gimmicks that will never come to fruition. Additionally, the spending levels established under this deal will establish a new baseline for federal spending, drowning taxpayers and future generations with red ink simply because Congress lacks the political will to do the right thing.
