Press Release: Steve Russell should have Opposed Boehner for Speaker

Friday, March 27th, 2015 and is filed under Press, Uncategorized

Fort Worth, TX – The Madison Project PAC made the following statement regarding the passage of Medicare’s Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR), also known as Doc Fix, a bill that adds $141 billion to the deficit:

“The House GOP leadership’s “Doc Fix” is bad policy,” said Drew Ryun of the Madison Project.  “It increases the deficit and forces our nation’s taxpayers to foot the bill. While we’re in favor of replacing the SGR this could have been done responsibly without forcing our nation further into debt.

“If Rep. Steve Russell had kept his campaign pledge to the conservative grassroots and opposed Rep. John Boehner for Speaker we might not be in this current situation.  A more conservative House leadership would not be pushing legislation as destructive as this Doc Fix.”

Steve Russell For Congress (OK-5)

Friday, August 15th, 2014 and is filed under Blog, Elections, Press

He’s a decorated war veteran and a successful small businessman. He served for years as a state senator in Oklahoma and now he’s running for United States Congress.

When it comes to candidates running this election cycle, Steve Russell and the OK-5 race have been sleepers. In a state where all 66 counties went for John McCain in 2008, many folks assume that whoever wins in Oklahoma will be conservative. While that is true in some instances, such is not the case in OK-5. While Steve won the primary, he did not win enough of the vote to avoid a run-off and this next Tuesday, August 26th, voters in OK-5 will decide who to send to Washington, DC, Steve Russell or Patrice Douglas.

Not only a limited government conservative, Steve is also a staunch supporter of life, having co-authored bills that define life as beginning at conception, that restrict abortions and that require women seeking abortions to be fully informed regarding the procedure.

When we look at the math of politics, our goal is to advance the ball each and every election cycle with comprehensive conservatives. Steve Russell fits that criteria on both fiscal and social issues. What is even more important to us is the feedback from conservatives on the ground in Oklahoma and when local tea party leaders are calling us asking us to engage on behalf of Steve Russell, this only confirms the direction we were headed.

We are thrilled to endorse Steve today and look forward to celebrating a victory with him on Tuesday.

Madison Project Urges Senators to Oppose Highway Bill, Adopt Mike Lee’s Innovation

Madison Project Urges Senators to Oppose Highway Bill, Adopt Mike Lee’s Innovation

Fort Worth, Texas The Madison Project PAC issued the following statement ahead of Tuesday’s vote on the Highway and Transportation Funding Act of 2014 (H.R. 5021) in the U.S. Senate:

“With so much waste, inefficiency, and debt in the federal transportation system, the time is ripe for the Senate to go big on transportation policy,” said Daniel Horowitz, policy director of the Madison Project.  “The current highway bill before the Senate invests even more money into the sinkhole of federal transportation policy and uses the most absurd accounting gimmicks to offset the $10.8 billion tab.  The endless debt and constant threat of increased federal taxes exposes the absurdity of running something like transportation of 50 states from the nation’s capital.

“The only way to improve our infrastructure, avoid tax increases on a federal level, prevent the need for earmarks, and avoid wasteful and inefficient projects is to devolve the gas tax and the related responsibility for surface transportation to the 50 states, except for those projects that are national in scope and therefore germane to federal oversight and funding.  Senator Mike Lee’s Transportation Empowerment Act (S. 1702) will do just that, and will come to the floor as an amendment to the highway bill.

“It’s time we free the states and the citizens from the paralysis, waste, and fraud that is associated with the lobbyist-driven federal transportation policy. Like other federal policies, it has encumbered growth and development for far too long.  We urge all senators to oppose the underlying bill and adopt Sen. Lee’s amendment to empower the states with authority over transportation and abolish the gasoline tax.”

Madison Project: GOP Should Reject Obama’s Supplemental, Focus on Stopping Lawlessness

Madison Project: GOP Should Reject Obama’s Supplemental, Focus on Stopping Lawlessness

Fort Worth, Texas – The Madison Project PAC made the following statement Wednesday in response to President Obama’s request for supplemental funding to address the illegal immigrant border crisis that he was instrumental in creating:

“Giving this president new funding to deal with the man-made border crisis is akin to handing more fuel to an arsonist,” said Daniel Horowitz of the Madison Project.  “Many of us warned throughout the immigration debate last year that the public commitment to amnesty and consistent abrogation of our laws would invite in a new wave of illegal immigration.  Now that the grim predictions have come true, it is time for Republicans to focus on the source of the problem, which is Obama’s lawlessness.

“We fully support Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), in his call for the president to dismantle his illegal DACA amnesty program before any new funds are appropriated for new immigration enforcement. There is no reason to send more money down a rabbit hole for new enforcement measures when existing laws are being violated, especially when much of the funding will be used for processing the illegal immigrants instead of repatriating them to their home countries.

“Furthermore, Republicans should reject a plan being floated that would provide the president $3.7 billion in  supplemental funding in return for modification of the William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008 (TVPRA). While this law does need to be changed, its current form does not prevent the president from protecting our sovereignty, as noted by the Heritage Foundation. The 2008 law certainly has nothing to do with the source of the problem, and is nothing more than a shiny object meant to distract Republicans from the real crux of the problem.

“Republicans should focus on existing appropriations through the annual DHS and HHS spending bills and use the power of the purse to restore the rule of law in a budget-neutral way instead of giving Obama new funding with no accountability.”

Madison Project PAC Endorses Jody Hice in Georgia’s 10th Congressional District

Madison Project PAC Endorses
Jody Hice in Georgia’s 10th Congressional District

Fort Worth, TX – The Madison Project PAC announced today that it is supporting Jody Hice for Congress in Georgia’s 10th district.

“Jody Hice is the only candidate in this race who will put his conservative values ahead of the priorities of the party elite in Washington, much like Rep. Paul Broun has done during his tenure,” said Drew Ryun of The Madison Project.  “Hice’s entry into politics is firmly rooted in his Christian upbringing and constitutional values, not a desire to rub shoulders with the permanent political class.  He will serve as a bulwark against Obama’s agenda of open borders, perennial debt, crushing regulations, and a weak national defense.  Jody has energized fiscal and social conservatives in his district.  At a time when our religious liberties are under an unprecedented assault, Hice brings with him an impressive record of defending those rights.

“His opponent, who has already endorsed automatic debt ceiling increases, is left with nothing but Thad Cochran’s strategy of enticing Democrats to vote in the GOP primary.  We will do everything we can to help empower Republican voters in the final week to overcome the entrenched politicians.”

Ted Cruz

Madison Project Supports Sen. Ted Cruz’s Call for a Full Investigation into the Mississippi U.S. Senate Runoff Election

Tuesday, July 8th, 2014 and is filed under Blog, Elections, News, Press

Fort Worth, TX The Madison Project PAC made the following statement supporting Sen. Cruz’s call for a full investigation into the June 24, Mississippi U.S. Senate runoff election:

“We fully support Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), and his call for a full investigation into the Mississippi U.S. Senate runoff election,” said Drew Ryun of the Madison Project. “The fact that a sitting U.S. Senator, who is a vice-chairman of the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC), is calling for an investigation shows how deeply troubling and volatile this situation truly is.

“Sen. Cruz knows that his call for an investigation will not be well received by the NRSC, especially in light of the fact that they were involved in some of the underhanded tactics employed by the Cochran campaign, but free and fair elections are paramount to the success of the Republic. We support Sen. Cruz’s commitment to the truth and the integrity of elections, and his willingness to ignore the political ramifications that accompany the quest for truth.”

Madison Project Congratulates Barry Loudermilk on Placing First in GA-11 Primary

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014 and is filed under Blog, Elections, News, Press

Fort Worth, TX – The Madison Project PAC made the following statement regarding state senator Barry Loudermilk’s strong showing in the Republican primary election for the 11th Congressional District of Georgia:

“Even though he was heavily outspent, Barry Loudermilk has become the consensus choice for the grassroots by uniting both fiscal and social conservatives,” said Drew Ryun of the Madison Project.  “The contrast between Loudermilk and Barr could not be starker.  Whereas Barry has been consistently conservative on all social and fiscal issues, Bob Barr has waffled on so many issues throughout his career.  When Barr had the chance to show leadership, he instead led the charge to praise Eric Holder.  We need more 21st century conservative fighters, not a step backwards.”
