House Chamber, Washington, D.C. January 6, 2011. M. Speaker:
I rise to express the hope that historians will look back on the 112th Congress as the session that restored American prosperity – and to express my strong agreement with the new leaders of this House who have declared that every action of this body must be measured against this goal.
Washington, D.C.--Representative Tom McClintock, CA-04, has been appointed Chairman of the Water and Power Subcommittee of the House Natural Resources Committee in the 112th Congress. McClintock served as Ranking Member of the subcommittee in the previous Congress, earning a reputation as a strong advocate for developing the nation’s natural resources.
This lame duck session is rapidly descending into farce. I believe this House is now in danger of becoming a caricature of everything the American people rejected in November: incompetence, arrogance, and a complete detachment from reality.
House Chamber, Washington, D.C. December 21, 2010. Mr. Speaker:
On November 2nd, the American people spoke loudly and clearly: stop the spending.
Instead of graciously bowing to the public will, the Left has embarked on a frantic lame-duck spending spree with a majority already turned out of office by the voters.
Washington, D.C. -- Congressman Tom McClintock, CA-04, has been appointed to serve on the House Budget Committee and the Natural Resources Committee for the upcoming 112th Congress.
House Chamber, Washington, D.C. December 16, 2010. M. Speaker: I commend the Senate for passing the tax relief measure yesterday, and I hope that the House passes it today.
According to the CBO, this bill comprises $136 billion in additional spending and $721 billion in tax relief. That means fifteen percent of this bill is spending – the other 85 percent is tax relief:
House Chamber, Washington, D.C. December 14, 2010.
Mr. Speaker: Titles 3 through 6 of the bill purport to settle four water rights claims against the United States by signing away the public’s right to nearly 300 BILLION gallons of water annually AND in perpetuity -- in addition to spending more than $1.2 billion.
