  • Agriculture remains critically important in the commonwealth

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

  • A lack of competition in Obamacare hurts patients

    It’s a crazy system.” That’s what Bill Clinton had to say about Obamacare recently. It’s not often that we agree on something, but I feel the same way as President Clinton and so do the millions of Americans facing higher health care costs and reduced access as a result of this seriously flawed law.

     

  • Hillary doesn’t deserve the hatred

        In this presidential election year, one party’s nominee is plainly unqualified, immature despite advanced age, bigoted, explosive, and running as a “brilliant” businessman despite several bankruptcies and a history of mountainous debt.
        The other nominee is supremely qualified, with a proven track record of public service going back decades, devoted both to family and people at large, and has made history as the first woman chosen by a major party for president.

  • Our democracy’s death will be our own fault

        There has been a great deal of hyperventilating in British tabloids about Russia and Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin. To see some of their stuff on the Internet, you would think World War III was about to start. Recently I was on a Trump vs Clinton Facebook debate and one person posted an article from one of these publications, I think it was the Dailey Mail, that had him convinced Russia is massing for an attack.

  • Reining in the CFPB’s unchecked authority

  • anctuary cities ignore the law

    We are a nation of laws. That principle was important to our Founders, and it is rightfully at the very core of our government. In fact, as I travel the Sixth Congressional District, folks continually tell me about the importance of following the rule of law as the best way to govern our country. Too often they have seen laws ignored with little or no consequences for those who break them, and want this to change.
