Congressman Tom McClintock

Representing the 4th District of California

Speeches

July 19, 2017 Speeches
Since 1964, we have tried to end poverty the Democrats’ way. According to the Heritage Foundation, we have spent $22 trillion fighting the war on poverty as a result. Adjusted for inflation, this is three times more than all the military wars we have ever fought – combined. Put another way, that is $176,000 taken from the lifetime earnings of every family in America over those 50 years.
July 19, 2017 Speeches
On our current trajectory, the CBO warns that just four fiscal years from now – in 2022 – our annual deficits will surpass a trillion dollars. That’s where economists warn we run the risk of damage or even loss of our access to credit – a sovereign debt crisis.
July 12, 2017 Speeches
Our current defense spending is about where it was at the peak of the Reagan defense buildup after adjusting for inflation. It is about the same as the next eight most powerful military forces on the planet COMBINED – and six of those eight are already our allies. The President has proposed adding $54 billion to this. That’s the equivalent of adding more than the entire military establishment of Great Britain.
July 12, 2017 Speeches
In California, five years of historic drought caused billions of dollars of damage to our economy, destroyed tens of thousands of jobs and brought many communities within just months of literally running out of water – all because we couldn’t store water from the wet years to assure plenty in the drought years.
June 29, 2017 Speeches
Kate’s Law, the bill this rule brings to the floor, is very personal to the people in my district because of two other names. On October 24, 2014, Sacramento County Sheriff’s Deputy Danny Oliver and Placer County Detective Michael Davis were brutally gunned down in one of the most cold-blooded rampages in the history of either county.

May 29, 2017 Speeches

There is always a temptation to conflate Veterans Day, in which we honor ALL those who served our nation’s armed forces, with Memorial Day, in which we honor those who gave their lives in the defense of our nation. All veterans, of course, accepted that risk. For those we honor today, the risk was realized, and it is to honor THEIR memory we set aside this day to pause and consider the enormity of their sacrifice and of our nation’s debt to them for that sacrifice.
