Republican Party of Texas June Chairman's Report


The following was written by Republican Party of Texas Chairman Tom Mechler:

June was perhaps the busiest month yet during my time as chairman of the Republican Party of Texas (RPT). I started off the month with a State Republican Executive Committee (SREC) meeting in Austin, then spent the rest of June attending grassroots and fundraising events across the state. We ended the month with deeply disappointing news out of Washington D.C., but I am still very optimistic about the health of the Republican Party of Texas and the 2016 elections. Read more »

Pete Sessions Statement on the June Jobs Report


Throughout American history, our economy has come roaring back after economic decline. However, because of the Obama Administration’s onerous regulations and continued federal overreach the United States has seen its slowest economic recovery since the Great Depression.

Republicans: The Party of Civil Rights Since 1854


Presidential campaigns are unpredictable, as the sudden national debate about the Confederate flag that flies over the South Carolina state capitol demonstrates.

The Threat of Terror


Last month, President Obama admitted to the world that “we don’t yet have a complete strategy” to defeat ISIS. Unfortunately, recent events have proven his statement to be true. It’s been almost a year since the U.S. began to lead operations against ISIS, yet ISIS continues to gain ground and more and more wannabe terrorists are getting inspired online, then trying to flee their country to join ISIS on the battlefield.

Supreme Court is Trampling States’ Rights

The Supreme Court has once again ruled to block the rights of individual states, putting women at a greater risk during surgical procedures.

In 2013, legislators in the state of Texas voted for commonsense measures to protect the health of women using abortion facilities by requiring the clinics to be capable of handling complications and risks associated with any surgical procedure. Read more »

Obamacare’s Federal Subsidies

On Thursday, the Court issued a decision in King v. Burwell, ruling in favor of Obamacare’s federal insurance subsidies. I was disappointed with this ruling and believe the Supreme Court once again failed to recognize the failures of Obamacare and its impact on American families. Read more »

The Left's Contradiction Will Doom It

The week of June 22nd 2015 may simply be the week that represents the high point of the modern day leftist movement. Yes, they got gay rights, but they also got the Supreme Court to bail out Congress on Obamacare in one of the worst judicial decisions ever handed. The Court rewrote Obamacare to keep it legal and demonstrate that for the modern left, words have no meaning. Read more »
