  • A balanced budget for a stronger America

    An opportunity economy starts with a budget that leads to balance. The House of Representatives sent a strong message just a few days ago that a balanced budget is a top priority. We all know the status quo is not working anymore. That’s why I voted in support of a budget plan that will help build a stronger America by balancing the budget, making real efforts to reduce the deficit, and repealing Obamacare in full.

     

  • Ted Cruz, Liberty deserve each other

        Whenever Liberty University struts its true colors and invites a far-right politician to speak, all you can say is, “Well, there it goes again.”

    By Congressman Robert Hurt

    Hearing from those living and working in Virginia’s Fifth District has always been, and continues to be, my greatest resource as I serve you.  Your input has brought to light problems created by some of the big government programs coming out of Washington.

  • Enforcement comes first

    There are many issues plaguing our nation’s immigration system, but the biggest problem is that immigration laws are not enforced. While presidents of both parties have not fully enforced our immigration laws, President Obama has made several moves to unilaterally gut them altogether. In order to protect against this, it is essential that any immigration reform start with enforcement.
