CR Liberty Score Update

This was a vote to pass a continuing resolution to keep government spending running at current levels through November 21.

The federal government is projected to run a $1.1 trillion deficit in fiscal year 2019. The national debt now exceeds $22.6 trillion. The national debt is 105.22 percent of gross domestic product (GDP).

These levels of government spending are unsustainable and will cause economic collapse. Congress just voted to continue the spending without review, without cuts, without changes, purely on autopilot. Historically, these continuing resolutions are seen as must-pass to avert a government shutdown. They can be used as leverage to pass important conservative policies, but Republicans neglected to take the opportunity to have a fight on border security, on health care, on infrastructure, or on any major policy priorities of the Trump administration.

The House of Representatives passed this continuing resolution on September 19, 2019, at 3:28 pm ET in a roll call vote of 301 – 123.

The U.S. Senate passed this continuing resolution on September 26, 2019, at 12:45 PM in a roll call vote of 81 – 16.
