  • The House will continue fighting to change the spending culture In Washington

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

    As American citizens, we own a nearly $16 trillion debt that leaves us borrowing 40 cents on every dollar and leaves each man, woman, and child owing over $50,000 to our creditors. The implications of these facts are devastating, as our national debt now threatens the very future of this great country.

  • Preventing tax hikes and saving jobs by repealing the president’s health care law

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

    This past week, the House voted for the 30th time to ensure that the President’s health care law does not negatively impact 5th District families and small businesses any further than it already has. The cost of this budget-busting law is too much for Central and Southside Virginians to afford and, listening to those we represent, we in the House remain committed to working on their behalf to repeal and replace this misguided law.

     

  • Mr. President: The private sector is not ‘doing fine’

    Proving just how out of touch he is with the American people, President Obama recently said during a press conference that “the private sector is doing fine.” Really, Mr. President? The truth of the matter is that the private sector is not “doing fine.”

     

  • Mitt Romney seizes the moment


    When the unemployment report for May was released at the start of this month, it was the best news Mitt Romney had gotten since he all but clinched his party’s nomination.
        The report showed that far less new work had been created than the government expected, causing the unemployment rate to go back up to 8.2 percent.

  • Be thankful for our system


        I’m sure President Barack Obama is not happy with the way things are going.
        The month began with economic bad news. Job creation was very weak in May and manufacturing was down. This is just another example of why a majority of Americans disapprove of President Obama’s handling of the economy. It also reinforces Republicans’ contention that President Obama’s policies have impeded, rather than helped the recovery.
