Georgia Congressional race a wake-up call for GOP

June 20, 2017, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in reaction to the results in the Georgia Congressional District 6 race:

“The Georgia Congressional race should serve as a wake-up call for the GOP in Washington, D.C. to get to work on President Trump’s agenda. The Ryan-McConnell rope a dope strategy where they spend more time on vacation than doing the people’s business will lead to catastrophic results in November of 2018. Speaker Ryan should immediately cancel the August recess and move aggressively forward on the President’s agenda with an emphasis on economic growth measures, including laying the groundwork for tax cuts, turning the President’s infrastructure plan into legislation and sending it to the Senate, and cutting the budget in accordance with the Trump budget.

“The House of Representatives is not saddled with the filibuster and the GOP Conference needs to be aggressive in passing limited government legislation across Capitol Hill to the Senate. “
