ALG urges Congress to defund the American Bar Association

Dec. 13, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging Congress to defund the American Bar Association as part of Americans for Limited Government’s program to identify wasteful federal spending:

“The ABA, which brings in over $140 million a year and has over $300 million in assets, does not deserve — nor does it need – the millions of dollars it collects from taxpayers each year. The organization has long been seen as trying to railroad conservative judicial nominees – even going so far as to break its own rules just to blindside a conservative nominee. It’s disgraceful, and Congress should make it clear that there is a price to pay for the ABA’s games.”
