Meet the Top Savers: Thomas Massie

Representative Thomas Massie has made a name for himself in Congress thanks to a unique blend of conservative and liberty-oriented policies, and a willingness to push back against big government from both parties.

Massie, who has represented Kentucky’s 4th Congressional District since 2012, voted in the 114th Congress to spend just over $175 billion in the next decade, making him the fourth-biggest saver in Congress and far thriftier than many of his colleagues.

Representative Massie recently warned against letting spending grow under the current administration, saying “if we have the House, the Senate and the White House and the first thing we do is increase the deficit, then I think that’s a very dangerous thing, especially for our conservative base.”

Meet the Top Savers: Raúl Labrador

Congressman Raúl Labrador has represented Idaho’s 1st Congressional District since 2011, previously serving in the Idaho state house.

A key member of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, Rep. Labrador has been vocal on fiscal issues, and in the 114th Congress, he voted for just over $167 billion over the next decade.

Discussing potential for big spending under the current administration, Labrador recently said, “I am a fiscal conservative, and the biggest issue we’re facing in America right now is our debt. As Republicans, we better be consistent on this or we’re going to lose our base.”

Meet the Top Savers: Walter Jones

Congressman Walter Jones has represented North Carolina’s 3rd Congressional District since 1995 – long enough to remember the last time Congress balanced the budget.

Voting to spend just over $8 billion over the next decade in the 114th Congress, Congressman Jones recently told Fox News, “Our nation is $20 trillion dollars in debt and we keep spending money that we can’t even pay for.”

Meet the Top Savers: Justin Amash

Congressman Justin Amash of Michigan’s 3rd District holds the distinction of being the most fiscally conservative Member of Congress in either party. His votes in the 114th would authorize just over $8 billion over the next decade.

This record is even more notable considering the fact that Amash has never missed a vote during his time in office, and accompanies every vote with an explanation on his social media accounts.

Amash recently said, “We can’t afford more spending and more debt, regardless of whether it’s demanded by a Democratic president or a Republican president.”

Introducing SpendingTracker.org

We are so excited to announce that the first-ever real-time spending tracker is online!

Check it out now at SpendingTracker.org.

This powerful tool has been on our workbench here at the Coalition for nearly the past two years. And every day has been worth it to build a robust methodology and framework that will now easily capture every single spending vote and display it online, in real time, for everyone to see.

As you know, federal budgeting is complicated, dysfunctional, and until now, almost entirely out of reach of everyday Americans.

How much is Congress voting to spend? And on what? How much is my Member of Congress responsible for? 

Before this tool, answering these types of questions decisively would have required scouring roughly 1,000 Congressional Budget Office reports and voting records — every session. (And that’s not to mention questions of procedure and rules that many in Congress barely even understand.)

It’s no exaggeration to say that almost no one would have been able to do so.

So we automated the process.

For us, it was a no-brainer.

New technology and data have affected every part of our lives, from getting a ride to finding a restaurant.

There is no reason for the cause of our generation to be left in the Stone Age.

We cannot underestimate how game-changing this tool is and how valuable this data will be for everyone who wants Congress to spend our money responsibly.
