  • Getting involved

    It’s encouraging to see the number of parents who have been turning out, speaking out and getting involved in the effort to keep Bedford Primary School from being closed. They have expressed themselves well and have made some good arguments.

  • The urgent need to cut government spending and reduce government debt

    This past week, the House debated HR 1, the Full Year Continuing Appropriations Act. This bill would fund the government through September 30th of this year at $100 billion less than the amount President Obama requested in his Fiscal Year 2011 budget.


    Given the current fiscal crisis that faces the 5th District and the nation, I delivered the following remarks on the House floor to discuss the urgent need to cut government spending and reduce government debt:

    This past week, President Obama sent his budget proposal for fiscal year 2012 to Congress.  A budget proposal that quite simply spends too much, taxes too much and borrows way too much.  This proposal continues to lead our nation down the same unsustainable path by growing government, further weakening the economy and increasing our national debt.
