ATLANTA — The Georgia chapter of Americans for Prosperity, the nation’s foremost grassroots advocate for economic freedom, has a message for Reps. Austin Scott and Jack Kingston: the deal announced yesterday by the Budget Conference Committee is unacceptable.
AFP-Georgia activists are out in force, calling and sending mail to the Congressmen to urge them to oppose a deal that increases spending above $967 billion for 2014. They’re also attending townhalls around the state to rally against yet more overspending.
Communications Director Joel Aaron Foster is available for comment on the deal and released the following statement on Wednesday:
“Congressmen Scott and Kingston each promised to rein in spending when they voted for the Budget Control Act of 2011, which put the modest sequester cuts in place. They need to know that Georgia taxpayers are tired of broken promises to get spending under control. They can’t afford another trillion-dollar backroom deal that leaves the taxpayer out in the cold, and trades spending today for the empty promise of cuts tomorrow.”
