"It's time to act. Otherwise, federal spending will bankrupt the US, thwart economic growth, and threaten our global economic competitiveness. The size and scope of government must be returned to a level that the nation can afford. Taxpayers can no longer afford a bloated federal budget full of earmarks and programs for special interests."

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

Honduran Mother Explains Why She Illegally Entered US with Her Child

FALFURRIAS, Texas—Shortly after her capture following a police chase, a Honduran mother explained why she put her ten-year-old son’s life in danger by bringing him to Texas via human smuggling. Deputies with the Brooks County Sheriff’s Department discovered the van packed with about 25 people shortly before they were to be dropped off by the coyote for a three to four day march through dry desert-like ranch lands with temperatures approaching the one hundred degrees.   Read more »

(The Woodlands, Texas) In the Senate District 4 special election runoff, the Texas Patriots PAC recommends Brandon Creighton.

Common Core FAQs - Your Questions Answered

The Common Core. Now that we've established that you have heard of it before, let's go a little deeper into the topic. We've all heard that our education system is broken, right? Then, one would assume that Common Core would attempt to be the solution to the problem.

True Wisdom Is Greek To Political Strategists

In an online exchange, a friend explained that Democrats win because they embrace and celebrate their base, while Republicans denounce, disown and conspire against theirs. Absolutely. And why is that? It's because mass-media and education are largely amenable, to say the least, with the agenda of the Democrat base. And they are largely hostile to the conservative Republican base. And for these people, EVERYTHING is political.

Persecuted, The Movie - A Faith Based Movie

Persecuted is a timely movie depicting some of the challenges Christians are experiencing today. While it is ‘fiction,’ Christians can certainly identify with the basic story line. A US Senator tries to pressure John Luther, founder of Truth, a ministry based on God’s word, into supporting legislature that would ‘unite’ all religions into one government controlled ‘church’.   Read more »

This Week in the House

This week the House Rules Committee held a hearing on the draft resolution that would provide authority to initiate a lawsuit on behalf of the House of Representatives against the President for failing to carry out his constitutional duties. All elected federal officials take an oath to preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution and it is our duty to ensure that it is vigorously protected. I believe that authorizing this lawsuit is a necessary step to hold the President accountable for failing to faithfully execute the law.

California’s hardest hit regions, forgotten by Sacramento Democrats, need relief

California’s lagging and uneven economy is leaving millions of people behind. This isn’t the election year spin coming from members of the Ruling Party in Sacramento, but it’s the harsh economic reality being produced by their policies.

Our state’s high 7.6% unemployment rate is well above the national average of 6.3%, and even worse when compared to the 5.1% rate in Texas, California’s toughest economic competitor. These aren’t just numbers: every percentage point means hundreds of thousands of more Californians who are out of work and struggling.   Read more »

Legislation Passed This Past Week

On Wednesday the House of Representatives passed the 2015 Financial Services Appropriations Act. This common-sense legislation prioritizes effective financial programs, streamlines funding for the federal government, and reigns in the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). It cuts total funding for the IRS by $341 million, prohibits the IRS from targeting Americas for exercising their First Amendment rights, and stops funding for further implementation of ObamaCare. I proudly supported this pro-growth legislation because it efficiently invests in programs essential to the financial health of our country and enforces regulations on government agencies that continue to work inefficiently and unlawfully such as the IRS.   Read more »
