CCAGW Vote Alert: Oppose H.R. 3877

Letters to Officials

July 29, 2019 

U.S. Senate
Washington, D.C. 20510

Dear Senator,

On behalf of the more than one million members and supporters of the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste (CCAGW), I urge you to vote against H.R. 3877, the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2019.

This budget deal was agreed to by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), and the White House. It would raise discretionary spending caps by $320 billion over the next two years with less than a quarter of that amount offset beginning in 2028, if at all. The price to taxpayers will be another $2 trillion in deficit spending.

The Budget Control Act of 2011 (BCA) established caps to keep Washington’s runaway spending in check. This deal erases those caps and repeals the final two years of the BCA, which will cost the average American household an additional $16,463 over 10 years.

Fiscally responsible Senators should oppose H.R. 3877 and force leadership to renegotiate a budget deal that has genuine fiscal accountability. As it stands, this deal shreds hard-fought budget constraint and will be disastrous to the nation’s fiscal sovereignty and the taxpayers.

Again, I urge you to oppose H.R. 3877. All votes on this legislation will be among those considered for CCAGW’s 2019 Congressional Ratings.

Thank you for your consideration. If you have any questions, please contact CCAGW Government Affairs Director Allen Johnson at  


Tom Schatz
President, CCAGW
