Dec. 9, 2015, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging Republican congressional leaders to include as many policy riders that limit the size and scope of government as possible in the omnibus spending bill for the remainder of fiscal year 2016:
"The omnibus spending bill for the remainder of fiscal year 2016 presents an historic opportunity for Congress to rein in the Obama agenda for 10 of the last 13 months of his presidency. Republican leaders and conservatives in Congress can accomplish that by usingtheir power of the purse to defund some parts of the President's agenda. While Obama has promised to use his pen and his phone to complete the fundamental transformation of America, Congress can use the Constitution to stop him."
