Fixing our Broken VA

I’ve shared your anger and frustration with the Department of Veterans Affairs’ neglect of our veterans. This kind of treatment for anyone, and especially those who have sacrificed so much for our nation, is unconscionable. I’ve been keeping you up to date on our work in Congress to hold the VA accountable and to restore timely and effective health care for our nation’s veterans. And now I’m pleased to announce that with my support, Congress has passed a bill to fix the broken VA system. The Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act of 2014 establishes a “Veterans Choice Card” which will allow veterans to

Securing The Sovereignty Of The United States

I was down on the Texas-Mexico border this weekend. I met with Federal officials, and I met with State officials as well.

I want to commend the work that the State of Texas is doing to protect and secure the sovereignty of the United States, including the Department of Public Safety, local law enforcement, Parks and Wildlife law enforcement, the Texas Rangers, and soon to be the National Guard.

Russia Has Violated the INF Treaty

The State Department has finally found Russia to be in violation of the Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces Treaty (INF), something many of us have known for many months. The Russians violated the INF treaty by testing a ground-launched cruise missile that is within the prohibited range of the treaty. I’d like the State Department to be candid about how serious

Senate Passes Cruz Bill to Pursue Justice for US Teen Murdered in Israel

The Senate has sent a unified message to the world: we will not rest until the Hamas terrorists responsible for the horrific murder of Naftali Fraenkel are found and justice is served. Two Israeli teens, Gilad Shaer and Eyal Yifrach, were also murdered in the attack. We cannot bring our bright young Israeli-American boy back to his family, but we can take action to ensure every terrorist knows that when they harm an American citizen,

Strategic Technology Development Can Help Secure U.S. Border

The House Subcommittee on Research and Technology and the House Subcommittee on Oversight today held a joint hearing on the technologies needed to better secure our nation’s borders.

Technology is a key component to securing our 2,000 mile Southern border. Customs and Border Protection and National Guard troops cannot be everywhere. Sensors deployed along the border can detect and track the “coyotes” who smuggle children—as well as illegal drugs

Tony Geldens: Dutch Resistance Fighter, American Patriot

Tony Geldens was a Dutch boy when on May 10, 1940; the Nazis invaded and occupied the Netherlands. Persecution of the Jews began immediately by the occupiers. Jews were required to wear yellow stars of David on their clothing. Jews were shot, beat, and sent to concentration camps.

Tony and a few of his Boy Scout friends joined the Dutch resistance. Tony began a 4-year career of being the Robin Hood of the Netherlands. He would steal supplies and food from the Nazis and give them to local Jews and citizens, much to the risk of his own safety.

Our Veterans Deserve a VA That Works for Them

I was deeply troubled and frustrated by the lack of quality care and accountability at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Our nation’s veterans, who have sacrificed so much in defense of our freedom, deserve a VA that works for them, and provides the best quality care. To make sure we meet the needs of our heroes, I was proud to support today’s bill, Veterans Access, Choice and Accountability Act of 2014, that brings some much-needed reforms to the VA healthcare system.

This bill improves access to care by allowing our veterans to seek private care if they do not live near a VA facility or cannot

Sen. Cruz: Israel’s Iron Dome Protects our Ally, Protects Us

In the last several weeks over 2,500 rockets rained down on the nation of Israel. 80 percent of the population has had to flee what they're doing and run to bomb shelters to hide: moms, dads, and children. When the alarm goes off, they have sometimes 10, 15 seconds to get to a bomb shelter. Imagine if the same thing were happening here in America.

Even as the fighting in Gaza grabs the headlines, we have to keep our eyes on the far more serious danger of a nuclear Iran. The threat of a nuclear-armed Iran would make Hamas and their rockets seem like child's play and our support

Poe Statement On NFL’S “Punishment” For RB Ray Rice

Recently, a video emerged of Ray Rice, a Baltimore Ravens’ running back, dragging his unconscious then-fiancée out of an elevator after allegedly punching her in the face several times. He was charged with third-degree aggravated assault; however, the prosecutors later dropped the charge after a plea deal was reached. The NFL’s response? A pathetic two game suspension. The league has harsher punishments for “offenses” such as eating unapproved foods or taking fertility drugs without prior approval.   Read more »
