  • Creating Jobs
  • Protecting Kids Online
  • Powering Texas
  • Repeal & Replace Obama Care
The reality of our world today is one of constant terror threats and plots against the United States.  We must therefore do all we can to give our military the resources and technology it needs to fulfill its mission, anywhere on the globe. The last seven years have left us weakened and we must do all we can to push back on the president’s strategy of “leading from behind.”

The rise of ISIS and other radical Islamic terror groups underscore the dangers we face. As your representative, I will continue to hold the president accountable and demand a strategy to eliminate these threats. Today’s threats are not just on the ground but also on the web.

15,000,000,000,000 + There are so many zeroes included in our national debt - it is tough to wrap your mind around it. Here are a few facts that will put it in perspective for you:

  • $48,699: Every American’s share of the national debt
  • $13,968: Increase in every American’s share of the debt since President Obama took office
  • 40 Cents: Amount borrowed from future generations for every new dollar of government spending

No business balance sheet or family budget can be built on numbers like that and neither can a government.  We have kicked the proverbial can to the end of the road now it is time for action.

It is time to put Americans back to work.  The best thing Washington can do is get out of the way so our nation can do what it does best: create, innovate, and lead.  I have joined my colleagues to support the Plan for America's Job Creators.  It is a pro-growth agenda that doesn't raise taxes on working families or small business owners.  Some highlights include:

  • Empowering small business owners
  • Reducing regulatory burdens
  • Fixing the tax code to help job creators
  • Increasing competitiveness for American manufacturers

The Internet has transformed into an invaluable educational, research, and entertainment tool, but with the good comes the bad.

I believe that every American has the right to choose what they believe to be best for themselves and their children.  Often in our digital world this right is lost because your personal information is collected and stored without your knowledge.

As a father and grandfather, I find this trend disturbing, so I introduced legislation to protect families – the Do Not Track Kids Act.

The needless environmental assault on our energy production has reached a critical point.  The EPA, following orders from the Obama Administration, is attacking all sectors of the energy industry and economy leading to higher gas prices and the growing possibility of brownouts.

There are real consequences to basing environmental policy on politics rather than facts or science.  Energy policy doesn’t have to be complicated.  It can be summed up with one short phrase – “All of the Above”.  An All of the Above approach integrates traditional and alternative energy sources to create power that’s dependable and affordable.

The battle to repeal and replace ObamaCare isn’t easy, but it is a fight we will eventually win. Through my work at the Energy and Commerce Committee, we have removed many parts of this law but will not stop until the job is done. This trillion dollar job-killing, care-rationing, tax-raising law is proving itself to be unsustainable, unaffordable, undesirable and I believe, unconstitutional.

I continue to work to make sure we replace ObamaCare with common sense, market-based reforms that will actually lower costs for small businesses, expand access to affordable care, and protect jobs.

I think the current law over-reaches and expands the role of the federal government into places it doesn’t belong.  Medical decisions should be made by a doctor and patient, not a Washington bureaucrat.
