Another Congressional Can Kicked Down The Road

For immediate Release:  September 19th, 2014

Contact: Mike Fellows 406-721-9020

Congress Kicked the Can on spending Says Fellows

Congress kicked the can down the road said Libertarian Congressional candidate Mike Fellows, in voting to fund government until December 11th. “Congress proved once again that re-election is more important then working for us’, said Fellows. The House was supposed to vote on 12 spending measures, but those 12 spending measures were rolled into one continuing resolution bill. “The Republican house had an opportunity to demonstrate they are concerned about reducing spending instead of getting re-elected”, said Fellows, but that wasn’t the case. We need members of congress who will work for us and not the special interest. Campaign promises of less government, from current Montana representative, Steve Daines ring hollow after his yes vote to get home, instead of reducing government spending. The U.S. House of Representatives is only working 116 days this year.

 

Congress needs to be reformed said Fellows. Passing the One Subject At A Time Act will be a good start. The one subject at a time act says that Congress should only vote on related bills. Downsize DC, which is sponsoring the act says it will:

 

  • Stop Congressional leaders from passing unwanted laws by attaching them to popular, but unrelated, bills.
  • Require each bill to be about ONLY one subject, and to stand or fall entirely on its own merits.
  • Make it easier for your elected officials to represent you by allowing them to vote on specific proposals, instead of on groups of bills containing divergent measures.
  • Create a de facto “line item veto” by putting only one measure under the President’s pen at any one time.

Bills authorizing the Export-Import Bank would have to stand on their own merit said Fellows, instead congress inserted the reauthorization into the passed CR spending bill. The Export-Import Bank was set to expire later this year. To some the Export-Import Bank is a corporate welfare scheme, said Fellows, that extends credit to Big Business at better rates than they could get in a free market. “I think it’s time we end government subsidies to corporations”, said Fellows.

Mike Fellows is the only House of Representative candidate working for more liberty and less government. His next stop will be the Belgrade Fall Festival in Belgrade Montana on Saturday September 20th.
