Published March 4, 2015 in The Hill newspaper. The United States now staggers under $18 trillion of debt, including nearly $7 ½ trillion run up by this administration. The interest on that debt is the fastest growing component of the federal budget.

When we send our soldiers into harm’s way, we have a solemn obligation to back them with the full might and resources our country can muster and to give them the widest possible latitude for action.

I will not vote for the authorization as the President proposes.

2/25/15 H.R. 1020 -  STEM Education Act: NO.  STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) education is an important field, but should not be funded by federal grant programs for which there is virtually no accountability.  Individual districts should assess their own students’ unique needs; tailor their programs to meet those needs and fund them accordingly.
