Happy Friday,   This was a highlight filled week once again.  Some of the biggest items to bring to your attention are the testimony of Attorney General Eric Holder before the Judiciary Committee, the passage of Goodlatte’s legislation to improve a backlog in rape kit processing, a ridiculous court brief filed by VA AG Herring about the Chesapeake Bay and TMDLs, questions about the Route 29 Bypass, passage of a House budget, and several letters sent to DOJ about grant management, release of criminal aliens and failure to investigate the IRS media leaks.  Everything is linked...
        Budgeting for the Future This week, the Path to Prosperity budget passed the House of Representatives with my support. This budget provides a much-needed path to balance and eliminates funding for Obamacare. As I have done in the past, I also cast my vote for the tightest, most fiscally responsible budget brought before the House. Unlike the President’s budget, which would never balance, the Republican Study Committee’s budget alternative would balance in just four years. This budget also encouraged the House to approve my...
  For generations of Americans, a sense of opportunity has long defined the promise of our nation.  This opportunity to succeed embodies the American Dream.  However, in recent years, a growing federal government and weak economy has threatened this opportunity.  Just a few days ago, Members of Congress gathered in the House Chamber to hear President Obama deliver his State of the Union address.  While I listened to the speech with hope that I would hear a new, viable plan for job creation and economic growth, I was disheartened that, yet again, I heard many of the...
~~ Reversing the Diminishing Workforce The reality of our frustrating jobs outlook in the United States must be addressed. The most recent monthly jobs report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that while the unemployment rate decreased to 6.7 percent in December, only 74,000 people found jobs and labor force participation fell once again. Last month, 347,000 Americans dropped out of the workforce, driving the Labor Force Participation Rate – a measure of those who are employed or unemployed and actively looking for work – to 62.8 percent. This represents its lowest level since...
  Does fixing the website fix the flaws in the law? Since the October 1st roll-out of Healthcare.gov, there has been no shortage of technical issues. The website, where under the President’s health care law Americans without insurance or required by the law to find new insurance can enroll in the new federally-run insurance exchanges, has been plagued by countless glitches. Needless to say, this has made for anything but a smooth experience for those attempting to access the site. Despite assurances by Obama Administration officials that everything was “on track...
It’s Friday. This week was interesting, in the sense that there was a missed opportunity to deal with our nation’s long-term debt and spending problems.  Congressman Goodlatte voted against the final legislation which ended the debt limit and CR stalemate, and you may find his reasons here.  Whatever your thoughts about these last 17 days, if you look back in time (ok, just 19 days ago) and re-examine what each side was saying about the October 1 deadline you may get a different perspective on the media’s (nearly universal) claims that the House GOP got slaughtered. Pre-October 1...
