Conservative Leaders to Congress: Oppose Funding the Far-Left’s Agenda in the Lame Duck

The conservative leaders of the Conservative Action Project today released a “Memo for the Movement” urging conservatives in Congress to firmly reject any legislation that will send a

penny more to the Biden administration’s radical agenda.

The best way to do that – aside from defeating the Continuing Resolution (CR) – is to pass a CR that ends in January after the new Congress is sworn-in and begins work. The United States Capitol switchboard at (202) 224-3121 we urge ConservativeHQ readers and friends to call their Representative and Senators to demand they stand firm against any year-end congressional Democrat spending spree.


The text and signers of the “Memo for the Movement” follows:


September 28, 2022

Washington, DC


Conservatives must not agree to send any more money to fund the Biden administration’s radical, inflationary agenda – not now, and not in a lame duck session.

It is clear that congressional leadership is already preparing for what has become a tradition of establishment Washington: passing a Continuing Resolution (CR) into mid-December, and using the approaching holiday to pressure immediate passage of a year-long, thousand-page, omnibus spending bill without time to read and consider it, much less amend it. Conservatives must soundly reject this approach.

Any spending bill will not only cement countless carve outs, pork, and special interest slush funds, it will continue to facilitate the havoc wreaked across the country and the economy by the Biden White House. Such a bill will continue Biden priorities promoting unworkable climate policies, radical race and gender theory, empowering authoritarian bureaucrats at the FBI, imposing COVID-19 mandates that shut down schools and force the military out of their jobs, and federal funding and promotion of abortion.

It will fund thousands of new IRS officials to audit and harass middle class Americans instead of hiring new border patrol agents to control the chaos at the border. Moreover, it will prohibit a new Congress from modifying any of these policies, much less implementing new ones.

A new Congress must be able to wield their spending prerogatives as soon as they are seated, not a year after the fact. Conservatives should not agree to any bill that continues to fund the policies that are cratering the economy, spiraling the country into rampant unlawfulness, targeting the humanity of the unborn, using government institutions to torment middle class Americans, and promoting racism throughout the government.

Conservatives should firmly reject any legislation that will send a penny more to the Biden administration’s radical agenda.
