FGA Urges Senator Mitch McConnell to End Pandemic Programs as the Senate Addresses Future Spending

Naples, FL—Today, the Foundation for Government Accountability (FGA) wrote a letter to Senator Mitch McConnell, urging him to recommit the Senate to fiscally responsible policies. 

In the letter, Tarren Bragdon, CEO and President of FGA, along with partners at FreedomWorks and 22 others encouraged the Minority Leader to end all federal pandemic unemployment programs on time and to prevent any permanent anti-work changes to the Child Tax Credit. These programs have consistently discouraged Americans from returning to work while also exploding cumulative deficits and driving up inflation.

“In the last year, the national debt has exceeded the cumulative deficits of America’s first 200 years combined. Still, many lawmakers are pushing to make pandemic programs more permanent, rather than creating policies that encourage Americans to return to work,” said Bragdon. “As the Senate continues to discuss increasing the debt ceiling and new spending with little justification, FGA encourages lawmakers such as Senator McConnell to consider policies that combat inflation and encourage Americans to rejoin the workforce.” 

America must return to fiscal responsibility and policies that reduce dependency and facilitate wealth creation for all.
