WASHINGTON – Club for Growth Executive Director David Keating made the following remarks following Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell’s announcement that he will support an earmark moratorium for the 112th Congress.
“Today Senator McConnell showed that Republicans really do ‘get it.’ His support for the earmark moratorium is a great victory for economic reform and fiscal sanity. Sen. McConnell did the right thing by listening to the will of the American people and the principled reformers who led this effort.
“The Club for Growth commends Sen. McConnell’s decision today and urges Senate Republicans to unanimously and publicly adopt the earmark moratorium tomorrow. And we urge House and Senate Democrats seize this unprecedented opportunity to join the cause and make the earmark moratorium a bipartisan undertaking.”
