AFP Key Vote Alert: Vote “Yes” on H.R. 3 – The Rescissions Package

Dear Representatives:

On behalf of more than 3.2 million activists in all 50 states, I write urging you to vote YES on the Spending Cuts to Expired and Unnecessary Programs Act (H.R. 3), otherwise known as the rescissions package.

We urge you to vote YES on H.R. 3, the Spending Cuts to Expired and Unnecessary Programs Act (the rescissions package). Americans for Prosperity will include your vote in our congressional scorecard.

In Washington, overspending has been a growing problem under Congresses and Presidents from both parties. Lawmakers now have an excellent opportunity to finally take an important step in the right direction toward restoring fiscal sanity. Following recommendations from the Trump administration, H.R. 3 is a strong package of recommendations that would eliminate nearly $15 billion in wasteful, unnecessary, and unobligated spending.

Passage of this rescission package would be a down payment toward more comprehensive and long-overdue spending reform. It will also set the right tone for the FY 19 appropriations process, which is already underway. While the problem of overspending will not be solved by this package alone, it will put Congress on track to begin enacting greater spending reform. It is crucial that Representatives pass this crucial first step and then turn to those broader reforms.

We urge you to vote YES on H.R. 3, the Spending Cuts to Expired and Unnecessary Programs Act (the Rescissions package). Americans for Prosperity will include your vote in our congressional scorecard.

Sincerely,

Brent Gardner
