In general, the art of government consists in taking as much money as possible from one party of the citizens to give to the other. -- Voltaire

NTU Senate Vote Alert: Stimulus Amendments

Posted by Kristina Rasmussen - March 04, 2009

National Taxpayers Union Vote Alert

NTU urges all Senators to vote “YES” on the following amendments to the “spendulus” package (S. 1):

• Senator DeMint’s “American Option” amendment, which would truly stimulate the economy by enacting a series of tax cuts. Reducing the tax burden now on individuals and institutions will ensure long-term economic prosperity later.

• Senator Vitter’s “Eliminate Wasteful Spending” amendment, which would strike completely or reduce a number of ridiculous spending provisions, including funds for federal vehicles, Amtrak, and agency office remodeling.

Roll call votes on these amendments, along with final passage of S. 1, will be heavily weighted in our 2009 Rating of Congress.

If you have any questions, please contact
NTU Director of Government Affairs Kristina Rasmussen at (703) 683-5700.
