ALG applauds House Speaker Ryan's embrace of the power of the purse


Nov. 3, 2015, Fairfax, Va.—Americansfor Limited Government President Rick Manning today praised House Speaker Rep.Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) for refusingto rule out policy riders on the upcoming omnibus appropriations bill when hesaid at a news conference today, "We fully expect we're going toexercise that power": 

"Paul Ryan's initialcomments related to using the power of the purse to help rein in PresidentObama's outrageous agenda is an encouraging start to his Speakership. This isparticularly significant given that it was a direct response to HarryReid's demand that Congress roll over and play dead on omnibus spendingbill policy riders. It sounds like there's a new sheriff in town. Hopefully, Ryanwill help clean up big government swamp in Washington, D.C."
