FAIRFAX, Va. – Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging the House of Representatives to refuse granting trade adjustment assistance in a vote today that includes a new tax increase, according to Rep. Jim Bridenstine (R-Okla.), who said, "The Democrats that were upset about the sequester on Medicare in order to pay for Trade Adjustment Authority…they were able to get the Republicans to change the revenue – so now the revenue comes from some better way of collecting taxes":

"Americans for Limited Government urges a no vote on trade adjustment assistance. It is just another big government program that needs to end. TO make matters worse, trade adjustment assistance is paid for with a tax increase under a new deal struck. It is absurd to raise taxes to pay for a program to benefit unions that big labor is lobbying against. Congress must stop the trade adjustment tax increase, and block this union handout."
