Club For Growth Reacts To Spending Deal

In a sign that anti-spending conservatives may fall in line on the deal struck Tuesday to fund the government through the election and avert a shutdown, the right-wing Club For Growth signaled it won’t fight the stopgap measure.

The real battle, the group’s spokesman said in an email, will come after the election.

“There’s not much to like about a continuing resolution that funds ObamaCare, after Republicans promised they wouldn’t, and spends more than the Ryan budget. It’s a given that Congress wants to avoid hard work before the election – the real question is whether they’ll do the hard work after the election,” Club for Growth spokesman Barney Keller told TPM.
