8 False Claims About Joe Straus

Smith Statement on Changes to Cuba Policy

Congressman Lamar Smith (R-Texas) released the following statement Wednesday in response to President Obama’s announced policy changes regarding the U.S. and Cuba.

Alan Gross should never have been held prisoner by Cuba. I’m disappointed by the president’s announcement yesterday. This continues a troubling trend of misguided foreign policy that does not make Americans safer, and that undermines our core values as an open and free democracy. The president’s policy rewards a dictator who has deprived the people of Cuba of their freedoms.   Read more »

First Russia, then Iran, now Cuba: One More Very Bad Deal Brokered by the Obama Administration

Editor's Note: Senator Ted Cruz repsonds to President Obama’s announcement today to change U.S. policy with Cuba and lift economic embargoes.

We rejoice that Alan Gross’ wrongful imprisonment by the brutal Castro regime has finally come to an end, and that he will be able to spend the holidays with his loved ones. But make no mistake, although we are glad Alan is now free, the agreement the Obama Administration has entered into with the Castro regime has done nothing to resolve the underlying problem. Indeed, it has made it worse.   Read more »

Gov. Perry follows in Obama’s footsteps with an immigration executive order of his own

When President Obama could not get what he wanted from Congress on immigration, he simply issued an executive order. Now, it seems Governor Rick Perry is following President Obama’s example.

The Legislature has on multiple occasions rejected mandatory E-Verify. Now Perry’s made an end run around them and mandated it on his own through an executive order. On December 3, Perry issued Executive Order RP80 requiring Texas State Agencies and private entities seeking state contracts to use E-verify, not only on new hires, but on current and prospective employees including subcontractors.   Read more »

Our Government’s Irresponsible Funding Model

As you know, Congress had a big decision to make last week. Our government funding was set to expire on Thursday at midnight, so we had to pass legislation to pay for federal programs by then. Congress passed a deal right up against the Thursday night deadline to fund our government through September 2015. But I voted against this $1.1 trillion spending bill. Passing a last-minute deal at the 11th hour doesn’t allow us to give our spending the thorough consideration it deserves.

Conservatives “Win” in the FY15 Omnibus Bill

Below is a list of funding and language that I helped ensure were included in the FY15 omnibus appropriations bill. These items address important national and conservative priorities.

Limitation of Funds for Changes Based on the President’s Budget Request. For years the President has tried to “reprogram” funding to use our tax dollars as he sees fit in his own budget.
