Fact Sheets

December 21, 2023 Fact Sheet
Speaker Johnson and the House Freedom Caucus have threatened to keep the government running on autopilot for the rest of the year, locking it into the current Continuing Resolution (CR) with no changes aside from the end date (a “full-year date-change CR”). Not only does this proposal lack credibility and support—from Democrats and Republicans—but it would also trigger indiscriminate across-the-board cuts that would hurt the American people and undermine investments in our national security.
December 21, 2023 Fact Sheet
The only way to avoid harmful across-the-board cuts is to enact full-year bills at the levels in the bipartisan budget agreement.
December 20, 2023 Fact Sheet
Until House Republicans are ready to follow the full terms of the Fiscal Responsibility Act of 2023 (FRA), they will continue dragging our country down a path toward a shutdown. Despite recent reports, House Republicans are not yet adhering to the full terms of the agreement when they say they support a $1.59 trillion topline, which appears nowhere in the text of the FRA. They would rather posture, delay, and cut the programs Americans depend on than get down to the hard work of governing.

New Abortion-related Poison Pill Riders in the Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act (H.R. 5894)
September 18, 2023 Fact Sheet
House Republicans are still more focused on introducing extreme funding bills than working on a bipartisan solution that could be enacted. Their funding bill would only keep the government open until October 31, 2023. This deadline guarantees Congress will need to pass another Continuing Resolution (CR) and means that either House Republicans will slash critical resources again at the end of October or the dangerous cuts in this extreme bill will be in place until Congress is able to pass all 12 full-year bills.
August 1, 2023 Fact Sheet
The House Republican 2024 Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education bill, and its 28 percent cut of $64 billion, portends their intent to end public education in America and eliminate job opportunities for young adults and working families.
