Weekly Capitol Report

Feb 28, 2014 Weekly Capitol Report

This week the House of Representatives took action to stop government abuse that is threatening American’s liberty and their hard-earned paychecks. During my short time in Washington I have been truly appalled by the power of federal agencies and the influence they have over every American.

Feb 21, 2014 Weekly Capitol Report

A few weeks ago, President Obama challenged Congress to make 2014 a “year of action.” I am hopeful 2014 can be a year to begin rebuilding America’s economy to create an environment that encourages private sector growth and job creation. Conservatives in the House of Representatives have a plan that lays the groundwork for a stronger economy and brighter future for all Americans.

Since its founding in 1928, the Future Farmers of America organization has brought together students, educators and private sector agriculture professionals to support agriculture education in schools across our country.

Hunting and fishing are a way of life for many in Missouri. For generations, families have come together to fish Missouri’s streams and lakes. For my family, the beginning of hunting season is celebrated like a holiday. I grew up fishing on the Current River and Norfork and Clearwater Lakes.

This week the nation listened as President Obama laid out his vision for America in the annual State of the Union Address. After listening to President Obama’s speech, it is obvious he believes more government and executive actions are the solution to every problem facing our country. When I talk to folks back home in Missouri, they tell me big government is the problem, not the solution.

This week marked the 41st anniversary of the Supreme Court’s landmark ruling in Roe v. Wade that legalized abortion in our country. Since the court’s ruling, more than 56 million innocent lives have tragically been lost. To put that into perspective, there are roughly 56 million people living in the states of New York and California combined. 

Jan 17, 2014 Weekly Capitol Report

This week the House of Representatives voted on a $1.1 trillion spending bill to fund government activity through October of this year. I opposed the bill, also known as an Omnibus Appropriations. Since my campaign for Congress, I have advocated for an open and transparent appropriations process.

Jan 10, 2014 Weekly Capitol Report

As your voice in the halls of Congress, one of the obligations I take most seriously is taking care of our veterans. The brave men and women of our Armed Forces who volunteer to protect our freedoms deserve not only our respect, but also action from Congress that shows true appreciation for their sacrifices.

Jan 3, 2014 Weekly Capitol Report

America’s veterans make tremendous sacrifices to defend our liberties and freedoms. Recently, I had the honor of cosponsoring HR 685, the American Fighter Aces Congressional Gold Medal Act to recognize America’s Fighter Aces.
