April 2012 House Floor Remarks: "A defining aspect of the American tradition is that groups of citizens band together for a wide variety of civic purposes."
May 13, 2013 Speeches
Across the country, employers are holding office meetings and the announcement goes something like this: "We love you guys. But here's what we make; here's what Obamacare will cost us; we can't stay in business with Obamacare. But if we cut back everybody to 29 hours per week, we can avoid the mandate and stay in business."
May 7, 2013 Speeches
Amidst all the controversies gripping Congress, certainly we should all be able to agree that the full faith and credit of the United States - the very trust the public has when it loans money to the government - should not hang in the balance every time there's a fiscal debate in Washington.
April 26, 2013 Speeches
On Wednesday, the Democratic Whip charged that the Full Faith and Credit Act places America at risk of default. As Churchill once said, "It would not be possible to state the opposite of the truth with greater precision." Quite the contrary, this measure guarantees that whatever political storms are raging in Washington, America's debt will ALWAYS be paid IN FULL and ON TIME.

I rise today in strong opposition to a proposal by the National Park Service to remove long-standing tourist facilities from Yosemite National Park, including bicycle and raft rentals, snack facilities, gift shops, horseback riding, the ice rink at Curry Village, tennis courts and swimming pools, the art center and the historic stone Sugar Pine Bridge
April 17, 2013 Speeches
The House has been considering HR 624, the so-called CISPA bill. Although its sponsors assure us that a person's Internet data would be stripped of personal identification, the bill allows this data then to be used to prosecute certain federal crimes. How could that be? It turns out, the government, having stumbled upon this evidence, can then seek a warrant to obtain the personally identifying information.
March 20, 2013 Speeches
Democrats and Republicans both want to get rid of a wide range of tax loopholes. But Democrats want to spend that money and Republicans want to lower the overall tax burden. The difference is important.
March 20, 2013 Speeches
Our fiscal problem can be summed up in just three numbers: 39, 37 and 64. 39 percent is the combined increase of inflation and population over the past ten years. 37 percent is the increase in revenues.
March 13, 2013 Speeches
This budget reflects a great struggle between American families and their government over whether they, or the government, can best spend the money that they have earned.
February 28, 2013 Speeches
The decline and fall of the Roman Empire offers us a sobering warning of a great a nation that became over-extended and war-weary abroad, while it became utterly profligate and decadent at home. Its economy in shambles and its treasury bankrupt, the mightiest military power on Earth finally fell easy prey for backward hordes that had previously existed only beyond the fringe of civilization. Three years ago, Admiral Mike Mullen sounded the alarm for our nation with this chilling warning: "Our national debt is our biggest national security threat."
