Club for Growth urges 'no' vote on worker-assistance bill

"It is duplicative, inequitable, and inappropriate for a country devoted to free markets and a limited government," Roth said. 

"TAA is duplicative (and overly generous) because the unemployed already have access to 99 weeks of unemployment benefits thanks to the many extensions already passed by Congress." 

The Senate will hold a cloture vote at 5:30 p.m. on the trade preferences bill, the next step in the process of moving three pending trade agreements with Colombia, South Korea and Panama. 

Club for Growth said the vote will be included in its 2011 Congressional Scorecard, which provides a "comprehensive rating of how well or how poorly each member of Congress supports pro-growth, free-market policies and will be distributed to our members and to the public."
