Club for Growth Response To President Obama’s Remarks On Sequestration
Club for Growth President Chris Chocola: "Republicans and Democrats voted for the debt limit deal that included the sequester, and President Obama signed it into law. They should keep their promise to the taxpayers."
Washington, DC – The Club for Growth issued the following statement in response to President Obama’s remarks on the sequester:
"Republicans and Democrats voted for the debt limit deal that included the
sequester, and President Obama signed it into law. They should keep their promise to the taxpayers," said Club for Growth President Chris Chocola. "The cuts that were promised in the sequester should be done, in whole, this fiscal year and not punted a day past when they are supposed to go into effect."
"Any sequester replacement should cut more, not less. Any sequester replacement
should not include massive anti-growth tax increases or include another false
promise to do more cuts later. Congress should also finally do something to address the real driver of our debt, which is our unsustainable entitlements," added Chocola.
The Club for Growth is the nation’s leading group promoting economic freedom through legislative involvement, issue advocacy, research, and education.
