Americans for Prosperity Hosts Stop the Spending Spree Event

Sep 17, 2021 by AFP

Bowling Green, OH – Americans for Prosperity-Ohio (AFP-OH) is hosting a tailgate at the Bowling Green State University homecoming game tomorrow where activists will discuss the massive $4.7 Trillion spending package in Congress and the tremendously negative impact it will have on every segment of American life.

WHAT:  AFP-OH Stop the Spending Spree Tailgate

WHO: AFP-OH

WHEN: Saturday, 2:00-5:00PM

WHERE: South End Parking Lot

Background:

In May, Americans for Prosperity launched a campaign, “End Washington Waste: Stop the Spending Spree,” to oppose the $4+ trillion combined “infrastructure” package. The campaign has so far produced more than 1.5 million letters to elected officials. The breadth of this campaign should signal to lawmakers that Americans want a better path forward. Instead, AFP has advocated an alternative approach focused on empowers individuals, families, and businesses and rebuilds physical infrastructure by:

  • Preserving federal dollars for targeted construction projects of a national priority.
  • Ending the practice of spending gas tax revenues on non-highway projects.
  • Unleashing private investment in infrastructure assets.
  • Returning power and responsibility to the states wherever possible.
  • Overhauling the regulatory and permitting system to modernize infrastructure reviews and reduce project costs.
  • Eliminating costly and unfair labor restrictions.
