  • 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.

  • Buying votes


        To no one’s surprise, President Obama’s announcement that he plans to grant temporary legal status to close to 1 million illegal immigrants was met with great praise from the Hispanic community.
        That’s certainly what he wanted, wasn’t it. This is all about November.

    Thanks for understanding

        Throughout my 40 years with the NPS, I have been grateful for the mutual support provided by staff, visitors, and community members aligned with a common interest, such as the events held to celebrate the Blue Ridge Parkway’s 75th Anniversary in 2010.  As Superintendent of the Blue Ridge Parkway, I come to you now requesting your support and understanding of the reasons for the unkempt appearance of the Parkway.

  • Another step in the fight to repeal Obamacare

    The eyes of the nation are on the Supreme Court as we await their decision in the landmark case on the constitutionality of President Obama’s health care law. Just over two months ago, the nine Supreme Court justices heard roughly six hours of oral arguments on several portions of the massive health care law. Since then they have been reviewing additional materials before issuing a written opinion, which is expected by the end of the month.
