Ongoing omnibus negotiations offer glimmer of hope

Dec. 15, 2015, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement commenting on the ongoing negotiations over the omnibus spending bill for the remainder of Fiscal Year 2016:

“The fact that Congress is still negotiating the omnibus on a number of policy riders provides a glimmer of hope that what is reportedly a disastrous funding of President Obama’s entire environmental, foreign policy, and economic agenda may have some small victories limiting the size and scope of the government included.

“Americans for Limited Government has laid out over the course of the last six months a pathway for Congress using its constitutional power of the purse to rein in the Obama administration on a series of less controversial but still vitally important issues.

“It is our hope that congressional Republicans don’t completely walk away from the limited government premise of their party, exchanging it for the embrace of special interest lobbyists. It is our commitment that any piece of the omnibus worthy of praise will be singled out as a small victory.”
