House Freedom Caucus 2024 Agenda – House Freedom Fund

Newly-elected House Freedom Caucus Chairman Bob Good (R-VA) just announced House conservatives’ top legislative priorities for 2024. 

The three-term Virginia congressman — who succeeded Rep. Scott Perry (R-PA) as HFC Chairman on January 1 — says that of all the crises trigged by Joe Biden’s administration, the border must be addressed first.

“Securing our border should be non-negotiable,” he said in a recent interview. It “shouldn’t be connected to anything else.” 

In Washington, leaders in both parties see border security as a bargaining chip, part of a larger deal. They want to use the border crisis — which President Biden personally created — to extract more funding for the Swamp and Ukraine, and extend the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act.

Chairman Good and the Freedom Caucus say NO. We don’t need a new bill. The House already passed a border security bill, H.R. 2, which would codify the policies Donald Trump used to end the flood of illegal immigration during his presidency.

And when the media and the Left threaten a government shutdown, Good says conservatives will be ready for that fight:

“Irreparable harm has been done, is being done by this president, and at some point, the House should exercise its power of the purse and say, ‘No more.’”

Rep. Good thinks it’s time for House Republicans to use the “point of leverage” they have in this debate.

“The president and the Democrats and some Republicans desperately want more money for Ukraine,” Good said. If they want the money, they should pass and sign H.R. 2 into law. “Any Ukraine funding should be dead on arrival until our border is secure.”

And even if the border gets secured, all the new money Biden wants to spend still doesn’t grow on trees. “We’re literally running a $200 billion monthly deficit,” Good noted.

That’s why HFC is holding firm to its commitment to cut at least $50 billion from last year’s federal budget.

Good is also optimistic about conservatives’ chances to improve the FISA program, which has too often been abused by the deep state. He commended reform legislation written by Reps. Chip Roy, Jim Jordan, and Warren Davidson, which would “protect Americans’ constitutional rights and freedoms while empowering law enforcement to do what they need to do on our behalf.”

On every issue, Good wants HFC to lead the House from “a principled position.” As Good notes, that strategy takes “stomach,” “willpower,” and “courage.” But that is the only way conservatives ever win.

The House Freedom Fund stands with the House Freedom Caucus and its new chairman, Bob Good, on this point. Washington never gives conservatives anything. We have to know what we want, and we have to fight for it.

Chairman Good understands his mission this critical election year — to save our country — and how to accomplish it — standing on principle. He’s ready to fight. So are we. And we know you are, too.

Happy New Year! And buckle up. 2024 is going to be a fight.
