A Plan for the New Majority

I’m excited at the prospects for the next two years. The recent election has brought about a historic change in Washington, increasing our Republican majority in the House and creating a new Republican majority in the Senate. With these majorities we’ll be able to place legislation on the President’s desk which will put American’s back to work, increase energy production, take care of our veterans, end Obamacare, and secure our border.   Read more »

So Who Does Congressman Culberson Represent: Constituents or Colleagues?

"Working in Congress is like standing under Niagara Falls"-John Culberson (R) Texas said repeatedly during a town hall meeting on September 22, 2014

Really? Sounds like a problem to me. The button on the pants of the federal government has officially shot off into the atmosphere as the bloat and the sheer girth of government has increased to sizes previously unknown. Houston, we have a problem.

Thankfully we have John Culberson fearlessly representing the good folks of Congressional District 7! Um, scratch that. Thankfully we have John Culberson representing the good folks of Congressional District 7!

Obama: Order and Progress Can Only Come When Individuals Surrender Their Rights to an All-Powerful Sovereign

This is a good article about the statement in the title which Obama made and then qualified his intention in it.

There was controversy over whether sharp reactions had taken the statement out of context.  I suspect that, as is typical, Obama was trying to appear on different sides of the matter for different audiences. This article proposes that Obama tried to disown the straightforward

Preventing an Internet Tax on Americans

During the recent House debate on H.R.3086, the Permanent Internet Tax Freedom Act (PIFTA), I went to the House floor to argue my support of Internet Tax Freedom.

I’m a believer in what the power of a free internet means for America – and for the world.

Because of our commitment to keeping Internet access largely unencumbered by taxes and government control, we have created something really amazing – a dynamic market for goods, services, and most importantly, ideas.   Read more »

ObamaCare rates in CA soar

How’s this news going to play out for Liberals, as ten million Californians get the sticker shock of ObamaCare premium increases. And unlike those “phony” scandals, this one has been verified…by a Democrat.

Democrat Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones admitted recently that Obama’s promise

House Resolution to Authorize a Lawsuit Against the President

At the beginning of this Congress, I took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States. This week the House of Representatives took an important step in fulfilling our oath when we passed the House Resolution that I authored to authorize a lawsuit against President Obama for failing to faithfully execute the law.   Read more »

Simplifying the Tax Code for Families

As a parent and grandparent, I know there’s nothing more rewarding than building a family. But I also know having kids can come at a high cost. This week, the House will vote on two bills to streamline our current tax code to reduce the cost of starting a family and sending your kids to college. The Child Tax Credit Improvement Act of 2014 adjusts the child tax credit to account for recent inflation and eliminates our current tax code’s marriage penalty

Federal Spending Update

As you know, the House of Representatives controls the federal purse strings, and we’ve been the leaders in putting together a detailed spending plan for Fiscal Year 2015. We’re able to set guidelines on how each federal agency spends their money, so we’re setting national priorities for the coming year. For example, the Financial Services appropriations bill, which passed the House last week, cuts all funding for the IRS to implement Obamacare. We’ve prevented your tax dollars

So, What Do You Think? Ben Carson For President?

Dr. Ben Carson is the antithesis of Barack Obama, which is to say, Dr. Carson is logical and competent. He doesn’t just work on brains, he actually USES his!

Dr. Carson make a lot of sense, and that vexes the Left.

Only the frivolous Left would argue that their policies have led to utter destruction of the black community, with the larger community on life support.   Read more »

The Texas House-Representing Voters or Subsidized Developers?

The other night at The MET Youth Building, State Representative Allen Fletcher faced a crowd of over 500 concerned, and might I add, a tad angry, constituency. The source of their anger? Two projected low-income housing units to be built in the Cypress area; one at Queenston and W. Little York called the Catalon, the other to the north of 290 near the Ravensway subdivision, named The Lodge of Huffmeister.

On hand to kick things off was James Hardin, president of The Cypress Coalition. He and his wife, Barbara Hardin have started this group in order to fight the possible construction of these two facilities.
