Club's Chocola: Budget Deal Will 'Increase Size of Government'

By    |   Wednesday, 11 Dec 2013 01:35 PM

Club for Growth President Chris Chocola fired back at House Speaker John Boehner after he asserted Wednesday that conservative groups opposed to the budget agreement are "using" House Republicans for their own goals and were against a bipartisan deal to start with.

"We stand with Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Tom Coburn, Rand Paul, members of the Republican Study Committee and every other fiscal conservative who opposes the Ryan-Murray deal," Chocola said, adding that his conservative group never commented on budget negotiations before they were completed Tuesday, CBS News reported.

Boehner was asked in a press conference Wednesday what his reaction was to conservative groups who were coming out against the budget plan put together by House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan and Senate Budget Committee Chairwoman Patty Murray.

"You mean the groups who came out and opposed it before they ever saw it?" Boehner asked.

"They're using our members and they're using the American people for their own goals," he said. "If you're for more deficit reduction, you're for this agreement."



Chocola said Boehner was off base.

"After carefully reviewing the budget deal on which we never commented until it was complete, we determined that it would increase the size of government," he said in a statement issued on the heels of Boehner's comments.

"We support pro-growth proposals when they are considered by Congress. In our evaluation, this isn't one of those," Chocola said.
