Today's Opinions

  • Speak out America

    Over a year ago House Republicans launched a new online forum, AmericaSpeakingOut.com, where folks from all over our nation could log-on and share their thoughts and suggestions for the future of our country.  AmericaSpeakingout.com is a fully interactive, one of a kind website that allows you to talk about your own ideas while also commenting on the ideas of others. This site was the start of a national dialogue that brought the halls of Congress into American homes.

  • The wealthy must pay more taxes

        Finally, President Barack Obama has adopted a crusade that is not only correct, reasonable, and completely fair, it’s one that clearly has popular support and could help him win re-election.

        One of the reasons our deficit is so high has been the continued policy of providing tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans. Ronald Reagan was the first to pursue this. He combined this particular revenue loss with massive military spending, and that’s what started the country on the road toward the high deficits of today.

    BCM addresses local need


        The fact that over 3,300 children in Bedford City and County are at risk of hunger came as no surprise.  The figure was cited in a recent article that focused on The Blue Ridge Area Food Bank’s recent survey. 

  • Protecting jobs from government interference

  • Working together to grow the economy

    Just days ago President Obama addressed a joint session of Congress to lay out his plan to get Americans back to work and following that speech he sent his legislative proposal to Congress. I appreciate the President’s willingness to address this critical situation and like the President I am committed to finding meaningful ways to deal with our nation’s unemployment crisis.
