Americans for Limited Government Condemns House GOP funding bill

Bill Wilson, president of Americans for Limited Government, issued the following statement in reaction to announced plans of the House GOP to pass a continuing resolution to fund the federal government through September 30, 2013 today.

“It is incredible that the House of Representatives in its zeal to avoid any conflict is throwing away its only constitutional leverage to stop the Obama Administration’s out of control power grab on labor, environment and health care.

“The House majority was elected due to their promise to stop Obamacare and rein in Obama’s big government schemes, and today’s decision to continue funding the very programs Republicans have “campaigned” against can be seen as nothing less than a retreat from the limited government agenda.

“It is my hope that this is merely a retreat and not a wholesale abandonment of the fight against Obama’s government expansion by this Congress.”
