WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Sanford D. Bishop, Jr. (GA-02) committed to supporting voters throughout Georgia and across the country by serving as an original co-sponsor to H.R. 12, the Voter Empowerment Act of 2015. The bill would extend greater access to citizens at the ballot box, and would more effectively protect voter rights.
WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Congressman Rick Allen (R-Ga.-12) today issued the following statement after voting in favor of the House-passed FY2016 budget resolution, H. Con. Res. 27, which balances in less than 10 years, includes meaningful spending cuts, and promotes greater economic opportunity for hardworking Americans and future generations.
“I believe a balanced budget is the first step towards restoring fiscal responsibility in Washington and putting our country on the right track. That’s why one of my first acts in Congress was to cosponsor a balanced budget amendment to our Constitution, and that’s why I supported the House Republican budget resolution today. This budget plan takes action to rein in government spending and address our nation’s unacceptable debt crisis. Unlike the President’s budget, which never balances despite $2 trillion in tax increases, this plan will balance the budget in less than 10 years without a single tax increase.
Washington, D.C. – Congressman Earl L. “Buddy” Carter (GA-01) today voted in support of A Balanced Budget for a Stronger America, the House Republican budget for the coming year. The proposal would balance the budget in less than 10 years without raising taxes in contrast to the budget proposal put forward by the Obama Administration which never balances despite $2.1 trillion in new taxes.
“Our national debt is the single biggest threat to our national security and, unchecked, threatens to leave future generations to a life indebted to China,” Carter said. “It is time for Washington to balance its budget just like working families, small businesses, and states, counties, and municipalities do every day. Our budget focuses on accountability, efficiency, and effectiveness across the federal government and on empowering states to implement their own solutions free of Washington’s overregulation.”
A letter to the Editor from Conrad Quagliaroli of the Cherokee Tea Party Patriots:
In my opinion, the REPUBLICAN PARTY HAS TWO YEARS TO LIVE! On the subject of defunding President Obama’s executive order on immigration (in his words, “changing the law”), after he himself stated on twenty-two different occasions, that the Constitution did not give him that power, the Republicans capitulated…again.
I became involved in politics because of the bold Contract with America presented by the Republicans in 1994. Since that time, the Republicans have done little to advance the Conservative Cause. In 1998 (just five years after their “revolution”) they produced an Omnibus Spending Bill filled with pork. The Bush administration doubled our national debt to 10 trillion dollars, in 2010 they promised to cut $100 billion out of the budget but didn’t, they claimed they wanted to repeal Obamacare but can’t even cut its funding, which is well within their ability and last year, the Republicans in Congress (with the help of eager Democrats) produced a pork filled Cromnibus Bill. And just now, broke their promise to defund, what THEY said, was President Obamas’ illegal executive order.
(We’re about ten days late on getting this one up but considering the DHS funding debate and its ties to President Obama’s immigration executive action, it remains very relevant)
New opinion poll: The statewide outlook from Georgia voters
The Dustin Inman Society today released the results a survey of Georgia general election voters on the subject of jobs and immigration. The survey, conducted on February 10-11, 2015 for the Dustin Inman Society by Rosetta Stone Communications, sampled 743 Georgia registered voters and has been weighted for age, gender & race.
“We asked clear, straightforward questions on the topic of jobs, immigration and enforcement that reflect the real world and offered genuine, commonsense choices. While likely not surprising to most working Americans, the margins in the responses should be regarded as guidance to elected officials that most of the people can’t be fooled most of the time. The majority of Georgians comprehend the connection of employment and wages to the importation of large numbers of foreign workers and incrementally deferring to legally dubious executive amnesty decrees from Barack Obama” said D.A. King, president of the DIS. Continue reading “Jobs and Immigration: Most Georgians Pro-Enforcement” »
