Rep. Yoho working to reduce the size of the federal governmentRep. Ted S. Yoho offered a common sense amendment to the 2017 Energy and Water Appropriations (H.R. 5055 ) that reduce the size of out-of-control federal departments that continue to grow annually, increasing in both scope and size. His amendment establishes a 5% across the board cut to the Department of Energy’s total employees. In the private sector, business has to find ways to cover costs, they have to make hard decisions, including the elimination of positions that are not essential to overall purpose and mission of the organization. The federal government should be making the same decisions.
Bring Back The Legislative VetoRep. Ted Yoho gave a speech on the House floor to talk about restoring the balance of power in our federal government. To accomplish this, Congress should revive the 'legislative veto.' The legislative veto used to be a potent check on the executive branch for the better part of the 20th Century. However, a broad ruling by the United States Supreme Court in 1983 – INS v Chadha - nullified the legislative veto in over 280 statutes. This was a sweeping decision, one that both handed more authority to the executive branch while limiting Congress’s ability to stand up to federal bureaucracies.Rep. Yoho believes it is time to bring balance back to the branches of government, preserve the institution of Law, and the Constitution, which has allowed the United States to flourish like no other country before.
