No, Obama hasn’t Checked Out

Has Obama checked out? This is conventional wisdom, but conventional wisdom is wrong for even many liberals don’t truly understand the guy they helped elect. Obama hasn’t checked out, he has decided to rule America in a totally different fashion, from the executive branch. Obama’s goal is transformation of America, and one way he has transformed America is that he has ignored Congress. The bad news is that Congress has surrendered their role to Obama's executive orders.   Read more »

Unleash the Energy Entrepreneurs!

A headline that wind power requires 700 times the land space to produce the same amount of energy than fracked produced natural gas grabbed my attention. This headline sums up the problem with much of the alternative sources of energy: namely the juice equation doesn’t exist when compared to the fossil fuels and shows that we are far from replacing Natural gas, coal or oil when it comes to energy in the next few years   Read more »

Stack of 350 Bills Stuck in the Senate

There are currently over 350 bills that have passed the House of Representatives but remain stuck in the Senate. The House has taken action and passed good legislation to address important issues facing our country from energy to job creation, but the process is stalled in the Senate where these bills still sit on Senator Reid’s desk collecting dust. The country’s many issues cannot be addressed if one chamber simply refuses to do its job.   Read more »

Congressman Pete Sessions Visits General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems facility

Last week, I visited the General Dynamics Ordnance and Tactical Systems facility in Garland. While I was there I met with the General Manager and learned about the products that General Dynamics provides the U.S. military for all levels of strategic and tactical operations. They shared with me their concerns regarding regulations that strain their business and hinder them from being able to plan their finances for the future.

Businesses need laws that give them the certainty they need to grow their businesses, which is why I proudly support legislation that will permanently extend bonus depreciation to ensure that American companies can more easily plan for the future. I will continue to support these common sense solutions to ensure that businesses like General Dynamics will continue to thrive, create jobs, and serve as an integral part of the North Texas economy.   Read more »

New reformers needed to curb the lawsuit abuse killing jobs in California

Joblessness and poverty in California are more severe than just about anywhere in America.

In an election year, this is a reality incumbents tend to gloss over. California’s improving, they say, so keep us in charge.

For the millions of Californians suffering in poverty, can’t find a job, or are underemployed, these assurances don’t go very far. Real hope requires job growth, and that means growing small businesses.   Read more »

Time to Remove Roadblocks to Energy Trade

The following was written by Congressman Joe Barton (TX-6):

America’s new found energy abundance creates incredible opportunities, but old laws are getting in the way of economic growth and the chance to strengthen security here and abroad.

Our nation is blessed with a bounty of natural resources, but until recently much of it remained out of reach.

The Conservative Case for Immigration Reform

The debate over immigration reform, intensified by the surge of unaccompanied child migrants at the U.S.–Mexico border, has many conservatives worried. Republican strategist Lanhee Chen explained that conservative opposition to immigration reform in the United States “is a very visceral reaction to what America should be about.” According to conservative opponents of immigration reform, immigrants will change America.   Read more »

Obama Backs Corporate Welfare

To most Americans, the words "Export-Import Bank" don't mean very much. The DC insiders, cozy with international corporate interests putting taxpayers on the hook for hundreds of billions of dollars in subsidies, want to keep it that way, too.

The Export-Import Bank is big businesses' big-government bank backed by U.S. taxpayers.
