WASHINGTON--()--Today, the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste Political Action Committee (CCAGW PAC) announced its endorsement of Reps. Tom McClintock, Dana Rohrbacher, and Ed Royce, who are seeking re-election to Congress in California.
“Vigilance on cutting deficits and reducing the debt has never been more essential”
“Vigilance on cutting deficits and reducing the debt has never been more essential,” said CCAGW PAC Chairman Tom Schatz. “Taxpayers need friends in Washington who will defend their interests, not the special interests. That is why the CCAGW PAC is supporting these candidates, who are bona fide fiscal conservatives committed to reducing the size of government by working to eliminate waste, fraud, and abuse.”
All three candidates have been principled advocates for lower taxes and smaller government and were designated “Taxpayer Heroes” in CCAGW’s 2011 Congressional Ratings. Rep. McClintock received a score of 97 percent, Rep. Rohrbacher received a score of 88 percent, and Rep. Royce received a score of 96 percent. “The CCAGW Congressional Ratings certify that these candidates will continue to strive to control spending, fight for lower taxes, and eradicate wasteful programs,” declared Schatz.
The CCAGW PAC also urges California voters to closely examine the records of all incumbents because some have received abysmal vote ratings. Rep. Judy Chu (D), for example, received a score of 7 percent in the CCAGW 2011 Congressional Ratings, and has a lifetime rating of 2 percent, earning the rank of “Hostile to Taxpayers.” Rep. Linda Sanchez (D) scored 8 percent in 2011, three points above her lifetime rating of just 5 percent. Rep. Chu’s and Sanchez’s ratings demonstrate continued support for policies that promote higher taxes and profligate spending, which have placed the country on a path to fiscal ruin.
“In the current political and fiscal climate, Congress has engaged in an historically unprecedented level of spending, and is supporting actions that will mortgage our children’s futures. On November 6, 2012, voters in Arizona should support Reps. McClintock, Rohrbacher, and Royce, and other candidates like them, so that they can fight for fiscally conservative principles that will be vital to taxpayers in the 113th Congress,” concluded Schatz.
CCAGW PAC is affiliated with the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste, a 501(c)(4) organization. CCAGW PAC’s mission is to support political candidates who will fight to eliminate waste, fraud, and abuse in government and represent the best interests of taxpayers.
