  • Dr. Obama will see you now


        The first thing that came to my mind, when I heard that the Supreme Court declared ObamaCare to be Constitutional, is a little procedure that doctors like to perform on men when giving them a physical. Personally, I’m not going to submit to any doctor doing that to me without a fight. The test brought to mind a prank, that the ship’s doctor, back when I was in the Navy, played on a sailor with the help of a hospital corpsman. But, I digress.

  • Preserving The American Way

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

    Recently, I had the great honor of attending a benefit for 28-year old Altavista veteran, Staff Sgt. Christopher Walker, who was critically injured during his second deployment to Afghanistan this spring.

     

  • The American people deserve answers

    In late December 2010, U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, a member of the Border Patrol’s elite Search, Trauma and Rescue team was on patrol with three other agents. He was ten miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border when a gun fight broke out with as many as five illegal aliens and Agent Terry was shot and killed.

  • Forgetting the lessons of Eisenhower’s address

    There was some dramatic news out of Afghanistan last week, but by now most Americans are so bored by the topic that they barely pay attention.
        The Taliban, the once and very likely future leaders of that country, attacked a resort hotel just outside Kabul. Before the five fighters were killed, they managed to snuff out the lives of 18 innocent people.

  • Incompetence and political games


        I voted for John McCain back in 2008 because I had Barack Obama pegged as a left-wing ideologue who lacked the experience necessary to be president of the United Sates. As he reaches the end of his first (and hopefully last) term, I can say that he has met my expectations. Actually, he has exceeded my expectations. When it comes to foreign policy, his performance goes beyond a leader who is in over his head. It’s been an appalling combination of incompetence and political game-playing.

  • 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.
