House Passes Neugebauer Terrorism Risk Insurance Bill to Protect Taxpayers and Help the Economy

Today the House passed H.R. 26, my bill to reform the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act (TRIA) by increasing taxpayer protections.

Obama Keystone Veto Threat Cause For Whiplash

I made the following remarks today in response to President Barack Obama’s promise to veto a bill with bipartisan support that would authorize construction of the Keystone XL pipeline. The veto threat comes only weeks after the President committed to working with the new Congress.

Listening to President Obama you could almost get whiplash. On one hand he said he wants to work with the new Republican majority in the House and the Senate; on the other hand, as the Majority Leader has

In the 114th Congress, House Republicans have the largest majority that we’ve seen in the last 65 years, and Harry Reid’s rule in the Senate has come to an end.

I remain committed to my constituents’ priorities: defunding the President’s unconstitutional executive amnesty, repealing ObamaCare, reining in the EPA, and moving forward with construction of the Keystone pipeline. Now is the time for conservatives to stand united in our fight against this overreaching presidency. Our work has just begun.   Read more »

9 Dying Brands Under Obama

If things are going so well in Obama’s economy, why don’t we FEEL it?

481 banks (and counting) have failed under Obama, and taxpayers were left holding the bag (pardon the bank robbing pun) for $71 billion of defaults. Couple this with the $787 billion in bailouts and you get “Obama Success!”   Read more »

Could We Be Living in The Twilight Zone?

Foreshadowing. Alluding to the future. Prophesying. We've all heard of these things before. We've heard foreshadowing through the recording made by former President Reagan when he warned of the dangers of socialized medicine. Or Paul Harvey with his recording of "If I Were the Devil" when he makes some very chilling predictions about the future, and I think we can all agree that some of those things he talks about have definitely come to pass. You know me, though, I like to find unlikely places for inspiration and I think I may have done it with an episode of The Twilight Zone.   Read more »
