Faith & Freedom Coalition Praises House GOP Agenda
Today Faith & Freedom Coalition Founder and Chairman Ralph Reed released the following statement regarding House Republicans’ “Pledge to America”: “The House Republicans’ ‘Pledge to America’ is a bold reform agenda promising not only to stop the Reid-Pelosi Congress and Barack Obama’s socialistic spending spree and government takeover of health care in its tracks, but to replace it with a conservative alternative that is friendly to hard-working families and small businesses. House Republicans rightly rejected the idea that Tea Party issues like cutting spending and delimiting government are somehow at odds with the pro-family agenda of honoring marriage and unborn life. Nothing could be further from the truth. Pro-family candidates are the most likely to be fiscal conservatives, and Tea Party candidates are the most likely to be pro-life. The agenda embraces time-honored values like traditional marriage and ending taxpayer-funded abortion as well as lower taxes and reduced spending. The message was unmistakable: we will not be divided by a false choice between fiscal responsibility and strong families. We will fight for both, and indeed we must do both if we are to restore America’s promise.” The Faith & Freedom Coalition (FFC) is committed to educating, equipping, and mobilizing people of faith and like-minded individuals to be effective citizens.
