AFP Action: Hollingsworth Re-Election Proves Hoosier Support for Economic Opportunity

Press Release

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Americans for Prosperity Action℠ (AFP Action) on Tuesday asserted that Congressman Trey Hollingsworth’s (IN-9) re-election was proof of Hoosier’s desire for fiscal restraint and greater economic opportunity. AFP Action had urged Hoosiers of Indiana’s 9th Congressional District to vote for Trey Hollingsworth after identifying the congressman as a champion of policies critical to removing barriers to opportunity and helping people improve their lives.

 

AFP Action Senior Advisor Justin Stevens issued the following statement:

 

“Another two years of Rep. Trey Hollingsworth means another two years of his active leadership against reckless Washington spending. Hoosiers can rely on Rep. Hollingsworth to prioritize principles over politics, even when it’s difficult or unpopular. Though we’ve made great strides on issues such as tax reform during his tenure, we look forward to seeing Rep. Hollingsworth make even more meaningful progress on other bold reforms that will break down barriers to opportunity and give Hoosier communities and businesses the best opportunity to thrive.”

 

U.S. Rep. Trey Hollingsworth has consistently led on policies that make it easier for Hoosiers to thrive. He supported the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act that increased take-home pay for millions of Americans, and he has been an outspoken opponent of the policy and fiscal nightmare that is single-payer health care. Rep. Hollingsworth was also one of just two members of Indiana’s congressional delegation to reject the $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill in March that pushed total Washington spending above $4 trillion annually for the first time. In September, Rep. Hollingsworth was again just one of two members of the delegation to reject H.R. 6157, another huge appropriations bill that kept spending at unsustainable levels.
