American Encore Joins Coalition Against Taxpayer-Funded Lobbying

June 16, 2015

In an apparent violation of law and a blatant violation of the intent of the Constitution, federal tax dollars are being used by the Obama administration to help activists lobby for tax increases, product bans, and other rules and regulations on the local level. Most of these efforts are attempts to expand the nanny state through strict local regulations and taxes on certain foods, alcohol, tobacco, and other legal products.

This is wrong. The federal government has no business using your tax dollars to fund political activity in your state or city that you may not agree with. The founding fathers left us with a federalist system. In this framework, the majority of governing was to be done by the people in their various states and communities and the federal government would be relegated to a few enumerated duties such as national defense. Subsidizing the efforts of certain causes at the local level clearly does not fit into this mold.

It’s past time for Congress puts a stop to this. American Encore has joined a coalition of several other prominent free-market conservative groups to demand Congressional action. You can read our letter to Congress here:
