AFP KEY Vote: YES on Senate Budget Resolution for FY 2018

Oct 16, 2017 by AFP

Dear Senators:

On behalf of more than 3.2 million Americans for Prosperity activists in all 50 states, I urge a YES vote on the Senate Republican fiscal year 2018 budget resolution.  The unified framework on tax reform recently released by President Trump and the “Big Six” negotiators in Congress and the Administration will provide much-needed relief for American families and businesses. The next step is agreeing to a budget resolution with reconciliation instructions that paves the way for tax reform.

We urge you to vote YES on the Senate Republican fiscal year 2018 budget resolution. Americans for Prosperity will include this vote in our congressional scorecard.

The Senate budget resolution includes many important reforms that would restore responsibility in our federal finances. It reins in federal non-defense discretionary spending by $632 billion, respects the overall discretionary spending caps established by the Budget Control Act, and includes many other provisions that would incite economic growth. Most notably, it provides a pathway for passing comprehensive, pro-growth tax reform. The resolution includes reconciliation instructions that give the Senate Finance Committee the flexibility it needs to fix the broken tax code.

Passing a budget resolution is the first step toward delivering a fairer, flatter, and simpler tax code that works better for everyday Americans. A vote against the budget resolution is effectively a vote against tax reform. A vote against the budget resolution is a vote for the status quo and the status quo is unacceptable. Conservatives in Washington should not miss this once-in-a-generation opportunity.

We urge you to vote YES on the Senate Republican fiscal year 2018 budget resolution. Americans for Prosperity will include this vote in our congressional scorecard.

Sincerely,
Chrissy Harbin
