April 27, 2017 Speeches
The last four elections have defined one of the most dramatic political realignments in our country’s history. In those elections, we’ve seen a net shift of 64 U.S. House seats, 12 U.S. Senate seats, 10 governors, 919 state legislative seats and the presidency shift from Democrats to Republicans. This happened in large part on three overarching mandates: revive the economy; secure our borders and repair our healthcare system. If President Trump can accomplish these three objectives, his administration and this congress will be remembered as one of the most successful and beneficial in our nation’s history.

Droughts are nature’s fault. Water shortages are OUR fault. Water shortages are a choice we made a generation ago when we stopped building new reservoirs to meet the needs of a growing population. We will not solve our water shortages until we build new reservoirs. And we cannot build new reservoirs until we overhaul the radical environmental laws that have made their construction endlessly time consuming and ultimately cost prohibitive.

Washington, DC – Representative Tom McClintock (CA - 04) today made the following remarks at a press conference held to introduce a Spending Limitation Constitutional Amendment.  Representative McClintock is co-author of the legislation.

        During the 1980’s, California enjoyed a Constitutional spending limit that produced a decade of balanced budgets, prudent reserves, no tax increases and steady economic growth.  You can measure California’s fiscal collapse from that day in 1990 when Californians foolishly threw that limit away.
