"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."

We Will Not Conform: Portrait of a Home School Family

We will not conform. We will not conform. We will not conform. No, it isn't a chant or a mantra. It's a statement of fact. Something that we as grassroots activists should be used to by now. How about another group of folks who could be considered full-time protesters? Another group of people who might be used to not conforming for even longer than the tea party groups have been around.

Defending Our Veterans’ Religious Freedom

Just after we found out about the VA covering up wait times for veterans, we found out they’re also covering up Christian symbols in VA chapels. We’ve heard reports that the VA has hidden a statue of Jesus Christ, a cross, and an altar in order to promote the appearance of ‘religious neutrality.’ This dishonors our veterans and our longstanding history of religious freedom.   Read more »

Where are all the Latina Republicans?

Here’s a little-known fact: There’s not a single female Hispanic Republican in the Texas Legislature. The state hasn’t elected a Republican Latina to Congress either.

This is alarming, considering that 50 percent of Texas’ 26 million residents are female and 38 percent are Hispanic.   Read more »

Governor Rick Perry - Time to Secure the Border

“If there is no national security you cannot have that without border security.” - Gov. Rick Perry

Texas Governor Rick Perry held a Press Conference on July 21, 2014, and in case you missed it, I am providing a link if you care to listen. His message was clear, “I will not stand idly by while our citizens are under assault and little children from Central America are detained in squalor. We are too good a country for that to occur.”

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

Senator Cornyn Introduces Bill To Boost Transparency Of Endangered Species Listings

Today, I introduced legislation to dramatically boost transparency of the Fish and Wildlife Service and the National Marine Fisheries Service’s listing process for endangered species. This legislation stands as the Senate companion to H.R. 4315, introduced by U.S. Rep. Doc Hastings, Chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee. The legislation would require the Secretaries of the Interior and Commerce departments to make the best scientific and commercial data publicly available on the Internet as it relates to future listings and de-listings under the Endangered Species Act.   Read more »

Individual Mandate Struck Down

The "second highest court in the land" — the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia — just struck a BIG blow to Obamacare.

The court ruled that the Obama Administration ignored the text of the law, and improperly extended Obamacare subsidies and the individual mandate to States that have not created state exchanges.

The effect of this ruling, if enforced, is that the individual mandate is struck down in 36 States, including Texas.   Read more »

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 »

Texas Patriots PAC recommends Brandon Creighton for Senate District 4

(The Woodlands, Texas) In the Senate District 4 special election runoff, the Texas Patriots PAC recommends Brandon Creighton. In the special election that was held on May 10th, we had recommended Creighton and two other candidates, Steve Toth and Gordy Bunch. Only Representatives Toth and Creighton moved on to the Runoff. We have reevaluated each of these two candidate's path to victory given the results of the May 10 election. Our view is that while both Creighton and Toth are outstanding conservative
