ObamaCare: The Pig on Ice

If you’ve never seen a pig ice skate, then just take a gander at ObamaCare.

Obama has done about everything he can do to keep the attention off ObamaCare, but it’s time for another propaganda campaign from the Politburo.   Read more »

North Texans: Mark Your Calendar!

Two very important events are coming up in October. Read below for more details!

October 3rd: Congressional Youth Advisory Council – EXTENDED APPLICATION DEADLINE

Ten years ago, I created the Congressional Youth Advisory Council (CYAC) in order to gain insight from 3rd District high school students and to inspire civic-minded young adults to achieve their full potential. The Council meets approximately twice each school semester. During the CYAC activities, high-achieving students explore the role citizens, lawmakers, experts, and institutions play in a democracy.   Read more »

Services Available Through Your Congressional Representative

It’s a privilege to serve you and the rest of Texas’ 19th District every day. I’m honored to represent you in Congress, and every time I cast my vote in the Capitol, I think about how that particular bill will affect us in West Texas and the Big Country. I really do appreciate it when you write, call, and email me. It helps me to know what y’all think so I can vote in our best interest.

But I want you to know that voting to shape a better Texas, and a better America, isn’t the only way I serve you. My office offers a number of services to help you navigate the federal government and celebrate your achievements.

The Fiscal Impact of Immigration

The fiscal impact of immigration — how immigrants and their descendants affect government budgets — is a widely debated and contentious issue. Economists overwhelmingly accept the economic gains of immigration, but are less certain about immigrants’ impact on government budgets. Contention over this issue is fueled by the numerous methodologies and complexity of analysis that obscure the fiscal costs of immigration.   Read more »

Congressman Neugebauer Votes for Plan to Balance Budget

I released the following statement after the House passed Rep. Paul Ryan’s 2015 budget proposal, the Path to Prosperity. The budget cuts spending by $5.1 trillion over time, and balances in ten years.

Our country can’t go on spending more than we take in. That’s not fair to American families who work hard to balance their own budgets and pay their taxes. We owe it to them to make responsible decisions.   Read more »

US House Approves TX Congressman’s Fix to Medicare Reimbursement for Doctors

The U.S. House of Representatives voted to repeal the 1997 Sustainable Growth Rate (SGR) law to better compensate doctors treating patients on Medicare. The Resolution, H.R. 4015, was authored by Texas Republican Congressman Michael Burgess, M.D. Twelve Democrats joined 225 Republicans in supporting the bill.

In a statement obtained by Breitbart Texas after the vote, Congressman Burgess said, “I’m happy to report that the House has voted

Cornyn Calls on Democrats to Protect Seniors

I spoke on the Senate floor yesterday, urging Senate Democrats to protect seniors from Medicare cuts to fund Obamacare. The Administration is making changes to Medicare Advantage that will cause premiums to increase, reduce choices and result in seniors losing access to the health care plans they were promised they could keep.   Read more »

Congressman John Culberson: Why I Voted Against Raising The Debt Ceiling

As a fiscal conservative and member of the House Appropriations Committee, I have worked hard to eliminate wasteful and duplicative government programs. Last year alone, the House Appropriations Committee held more than 110 budget and oversight hearings to weed out waste and make careful line-by-line budget decisions. House conservatives have forced Washington to reduce total annual spending for two straight years—the first time since the Korean War—and we have rolled back our annual spending levels to 2006-2007 levels. But this annual spending is just a fraction of the federal budget: in fact, the annual budget is less than 33 percent of total federal spending. The real drivers of our debt

Congressman Johnson Introduces Common-Sense Medicare Part A Reform

Congressman Scott Perry (R-PA) and I introduced common-sense Medicare reform legislation, H.R. 3498, so seniors can have the freedom to make their own healthcare decisions and to opt-out of the government-run health program for seniors. 

As folks continue to see their healthcare options diminished by ObamaCare, it’s critical to find ways that allow a return to choice and freedom in health care.

Nationalization: One step at a time

The people relying on Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security didn't fail. They (we) were sold a tax scheme (sound familiar, Justice Roberts?) that claimed to be insurance and pension plans.

If you've ever scoffed at the rumors that the Federal government might confiscate your retirement savings, it's time to reconsider. And you don't have to look to the actions of Greece, Ireland, Poland or Cyprus to do so.   Read more »
