May 13, 2020 by AFP

Grassroots group hosts tele-town hall to oppose massive spending bill

INDIANAPOLIS, IN – Americans for Prosperity-Indiana (AFP-IN) announced it will host a tele-town hall with Congressman Jim Banks, Chief Economist at the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) Jonathan Williams, and AFP Director of Grassroots Operations Chase Downham tomorrow, May 14th. They will discuss the $3 trillion spending package introduced in the House of Representatives and why Congress needs to reject this attempt to bail out localities and states for years of fiscal irresponsibility.

Recently, AFP launched a national grassroots campaign to mobilize grassroots activists against yet another potential trillion dollar federal spending bill. The grassroots group also recently hosted tele-town halls with U.S. Sens. David Perdue, Ron Johnson, Todd Young and Rick Scott on state bailouts.

AFP-IN State Director Michael Chartier issued the following statement:

“Another multi-trillion-dollar spending package puts our country in an even bigger hole to climb out of. Not only does this bill put economic recovery farther away, it punishes Hoosiers’ fiscal responsibility for other states’ fiscal irresponsibility.

“This bill represents the worst in fiscal irresponsibility in Washington and lawmakers need to draw the line in the sand. Including a trillion dollars of bailouts to local and states won’t fix states’ fiscal mismanagement. We’re excited to hear from Congressman Banks on how lawmakers will act to protect taxpayers and not just pay lip service to taxpayers.”
