  • TRAIN Act helps get the economy on the right track

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

    With unemployment remaining unacceptably high across the 5th District and the country, the U.S House of Representatives has focused on promoting pro-growth policies that would remove the federal government as a barrier to job creation and help get our economy back on track.

  • Speak out America

    Over a year ago House Republicans launched a new online forum, AmericaSpeakingOut.com, where folks from all over our nation could log-on and share their thoughts and suggestions for the future of our country.  AmericaSpeakingout.com is a fully interactive, one of a kind website that allows you to talk about your own ideas while also commenting on the ideas of others.

  • The wealthy must pay more taxes

        Finally, President Barack Obama has adopted a crusade that is not only correct, reasonable, and completely fair, it’s one that clearly has popular support and could help him win re-election.

        One of the reasons our deficit is so high has been the continued policy of providing tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans. Ronald Reagan was the first to pursue this. He combined this particular revenue loss with massive military spending, and that’s what started the country on the road toward the high deficits of today.

  • Republican headquarters opens

        Bedford’s Republican Party headquarters is open for business on North Bridge Street in Bedford.  The site they chose is in the store front most recently occupied by Ranch Road. According to Nate Boyer, chairman of the Bedford Republican Committee, the site was chosen because its Centertown location gives them better exposure to foot traffic. This was especially important as they opened in time for Centerfest and this location placed them in the middle of the festival area. Boyer said that it also gives them space for larger events.

  • Few turn out for reversion meeting

        The turnout was less than what local officials had hoped for, but those attending last Thursday’s meeting on reversion in Bedford City Council Chambers had ample opportunity to get their questions answered.

        “The city is not in economic distress,” Bedford City Manager Charles Kolakowski said about Bedford’s decision to revert from a city to a town. “We’ve looked at this as a positive step for both parties.”
