Club For Growth Blisters Northup

The Kentucky Club for Growth, headed by Lakeside Park resident Brian Richmond, is taking GOP gubernatorial candidate Anne Northup to task over her voting record on tax and spending issues.

We continue to hear candidate Northup state the position that she is a fiscal conservative and that things would change if she is elected. That is candidate Northup. But Rep. Northup was anything but a fiscal conservative during her stint in Washington: Like Nancy Pelosi, Northup voted "no" on all the Flake amendments that would have seriously reduced wasteful "earmarks."

Rep. Northup voted against the line-item veto (RC 317 in 2006).

Rep. Northup voted against cutting sugar subsidies (RC 234 in 2005).

Rep. Northup never supported the fiscally conservative RSC alternative budget.

National Club for Growth political director Andy Roth made a great point to me last week regarding the RSC alternative budget. He said, "A person may say they are a fiscal conservative, but if they don’t vote for the RSC budget, then their rhetoric is empty."

Do Kentucky Club for Growth members need to know anything else?
