Statement from ACU Chairman Al Cardenas on Today’s New York Times Article

April 8, 2013

The federal government wastes billions of dollars every single year on programs where it has no legitimate role. That is wrong and government needs to be smaller and leaner. ACU believes in the current budget framework supported by conservatives in Congress. Within the fiscal parameters of that budget we also believe in further reductions in other areas to accommodate adequate spending levels in defense and infrastructure. Constitutional conservatives need to fight for legitimate spending in the areas of defense and transportation infrastructure: two delineated areas of federal responsibility, as set out in the Constitution and the Federalist Papers, and as designed by our Founders. The American Strength program will make that case to policy makers and the public; we welcome those to join our effort who share that view of constitutional conservatism.
