The lame duck should be a dead duck

Sept. 8, 2016, Fairfax, Va.–Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to reports Congress is once again considering a 3-month continuing resolution:

“The last thing the American people should want is a Congress without any political pressure on it to make last-minute deals with President Obama, cementing his legacy permanently and tying the hands of the future president. House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell should do a full-year funding bill, fulfilling the return to regular order they promised. The lame duck should be a dead duck.”
