In The News
Republicans in Congress are fired up by the chance to accomplish big things in the early days of the upcoming Trump administration and move away from the crisis budgeting that faces them once again in the lame-duck session.
We are in a constitutional crisis. Since 2011, approval ratings for Congress are consistently below 20 percent. Presidential authority and executive overreach are greater and more abusive now than during any time in recent memory. Members in the House and the Senate struggle to offer alternative policies and are stonewalled by the executive branch.
The U.S. House of Representatives recently passed the State Sponsors of Terrorism Review Enhancement Act, H.R. 5484, authored by U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL).
Gov. Rick Scott is in Washington this afternoon meeting with House Speaker Paul Ryan, Florida’s U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, and U.S. Rep. Ted Yoho to talk about the latest effort to fund the fight on the Zika virus.
When the United States has friends like Saudi Arabia, who needs enemies?
Last week the Obama administration approved the largest release of detainees from the terrorist prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. These fifteen hardened terrorists will be transferred and placed under the custody of the United Arab Emirates (UAE). This prisoner release greatly concerns me. As a member of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, I believe this transfer is reckless and shortsighted.
Florida Republican Ted Yoho is leading the charge on Capitol Hill to delay--and possibly halt--the sale of weapons to Saudi Arabia.
Yoho noted on Wednesday that he was against the State Department’s planned $1.15 billion arms sale to Saudi Arabia.
Mosquitos are effective at distributing diseases and they don’t care if you are a Democrat or a Republican. The current Senate delay in approving funding to combat the spread of the Zika virus is frustrating, unnecessary, and dangerous. Now is not the time to be playing politics with the health of the American people.
America needs to rethink how we distribute our foreign aid around the world. I came to Congress on the promise of cutting wasteful government spending. There are plenty of examples of the government playing loose with taxpayer money, but none more so than how we spend our foreign aid dollars.
Government has two roles. Pretend to make the lives of Americans better - while actually making them worse. The first is a necessary facade - to allow them to execute the second.
Is this crass and cynical? Yes, it is. But it is also accurate. Here’s some more crass accuracy.
