As a September 30 deadline looms over Washington over government funding, Rep. Scott Perry (R-10) has emerged as one of the five lawmakers to watch according to The Hill.

Perry, chair of the House Freedom Caucus (HFC), has been at the center of the appropriations fight as the HFC pushes for steeper spending cuts. It also threatens trouble for House Speaker Kevin McCarthy if it doesn’t get them.

McCarthy (R-Calif.) told House GOP members that the body will likely have to pass a continuing resolution, if it wants to keep the government running past that deadline.

In a statement released earlier Monday, the HFC said it would oppose any spending measure that fails to …

1. Include the House-passed “Secure the Border Act of 2023” to cease the unchecked flow of illegal migrants, combat the evils of human trafficking, and stop the flood of dangerous fentanyl into our communities;

2. Address the unprecedented weaponization of the Justice Department and FBI to focus them on prosecuting real criminals instead of conducting political witch hunts and targeting law-abiding citizens; and

3. End the Left’s cancerous woke policies in the Pentagon undermining our military’s core warfighting mission. Furthermore, we will oppose any attempt by Washington to revert to its old playbook of using a series of short-term funding extensions designed to push Congress up against a December deadline to force the passage of yet another monstrous, budget busting, pork filled, lobbyist handout omnibus spending bill at year’s end and we will use every procedural tool necessary to prevent that outcome.

Lastly, we will oppose any blank check for Ukraine in any supplemental appropriations bill.”

McCarthy has repeatedly vowed that he won’t take up an “omnibus” spending package — when all 12 spending bills are rolled into one mammoth piece of legislation. But he hasn’t ruled out pairing some bills together into several smaller packages.

The House will have just 12 legislative days to figure out how to fund the government and prevent a shutdown.
