Heritage Action Opposes, Will Key Vote GOP’s New Debt Limit Plan


Heritage Action announced Tuesday that it will include the House GOP’s scheduled vote to fund the government and raise the debt ceiling Tuesday evening as a key vote in its scorecard, according to a statement.

The conservative lobbying organization opposes the bill, which would fund the government through Dec. 15, raise the debt ceiling through Feb. 7 and eliminate health care subsidies for the White House, Congress and their staff.

“Unfortunately, the proposed deal will do nothing to stop Obamacare’s massive new entitlements from taking root — radically changing the nature of American health care,” the group said in a statement.

Heritage Action said last week that it would not include a different bill that would have raised the debt ceiling without funding the government as a key vote.
