Obama Administration is Intentionally Misleading Americans on Proposed Water Rule

U.S. Senators John Barrasso (R-WY), Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Senate Environment and Public Works Committee Ranking Member David Vitter (R-LA), and I led a group of 25 senators in calling out the Obama Administration for intentionally misleading Americans about the negative impacts of the proposed “Waters of the United States” (WOTUS) rule.   Read more »

Fighting Against Federal Overregulation of Texas Waters

You may remember this last spring when the EPA proposed a rule to expand their jurisdiction under the Clean Water Act of 1972. The law lets them regulate “navigable waters of the United States,” but their proposed rule would expand that to include even runoff ditches and stock ponds on our private property. And for us in Texas, that means severe limits on farming, ranching, and construction. That means more top-down federal regulation that ignores local efforts.   Read more »

UnFair: Exposing the IRS Movie Review

When I first saw the advertisement for Unfair: Exposing the IRS, I was interested, but unsure of the meaning. I thought I knew some of the bad things about the IRS, but was I ever in for a surprise. The words, “Abuse by the IRS”, caused me to remember having been harassed by the IRS personally; and after attending the movie here in Dallas, I was astounded.

Here we live in America, the home of the free and the brave, and this rogue agency, with its huge budget and unlimited resources is deliberately punishing people,

President Inequality

Barack Obama is President Inequality. The stats are clear, and while President Obama talks about inequality, what is overlooked is his policies have made inequality even worse.

The reality is the average family and middle class incomes have not even reached the pre-recession numbers of 2007. We have been told that this recovery began in 2009 but yet, income is nearly 4% lower than the median income when the recession supposedly ended and nearly 8% lower than 2007.

As a Wall Street Journal article observed, while incomes modestly increased in 2013, they still lagged far behind where they should be five years into a recovery.

Congressman Farenthold Discusses His Time on the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee

Our district is home to five ports and a portion of the Gulf Coast Waterway. It has been estimated that Texas waterways will transport over 766 million tons of cargo by 2030. This is why I am glad the President signed into law H.R.3080, the Water Resources Reform and Development Act (WRRDA). I co-sponsored and provided language in this legislation that expands an Army Corps assessment of the operation and maintenance needs of the entire Gulf Intracostal Waterway System.   Read more »

Sweep the Senate

This 8-minute video is the best explanation you will find for ousting the Democrats in 2014 and is a video that even Democrats who love America should see.

Unless the Republicans win a majority in the Senate, and keep a majority in the House, Harry Reid and Obama will have no restraints on further destroying America, the last bastion of freedom in the world today.   Read more »

Instead of the state’s commission, Gavin Newsom focuses on his own “economic development”

With the nation’s highest poverty rate and one of the nation’s worst unemployment rates, it’s pretty clear that California is in need of more economic development. This means generating sufficient private sector job growth to put large numbers of currently unemployed Californians back to work.

California has a commission with just such a mission. It’s chaired by Lt. Governor Gavin Newsom. And it’s defunct.   Read more »

387 Bills Stuck in the Senate

Here’s something you won’t hear about on the news: right now, there are 387 House-passed bills stuck in the Senate. These bills, many with broad bipartisan support, contain the policy changes needed to jump-start the American economy, secure our border, and rein in an out-of-control federal bureaucracy. Week after week, the House has drafted, debated, and passed bills that address the many crises facing our country. The overwhelming majority of these bills are collecting dust on Harry Reid’s desk.   Read more »

Senator Cornyn on CBO Report: Nation is Drowning in Debt

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) projected yesterday that the annual deficit will double over the next 10 years, despite recent attempts by President Obama to claim credit for reducing spending:

Behind the façade of President Obama’s shrinking deficit fueled by higher taxes is a national debt growing so fast that every child born comes into the world owing nearly $56,000.   Read more »

ObamaCare deems FUN a liability

You’d think in the time of ObamaCare, that protecting us from ourselves would be as outdated as platform shoes. But ObamaCare must now go into protection mode for itself.

Furthermore, as we all know, the Left will not rest until everyone in America dies of natural causes.   Read more »
