"When Congress asks you a question, you're expected to give a truthful answer. When Congress issues a subpoena, compliance is not optional. Imagine if a taxpayer failed to comply with an IRS subpoena--what would they do to you?" I am thankful to Congressman Jason Chaffetz and other members of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform for responding to the American people. IRS Comissioner John Koskinen must be held accountable. Watch the full hearing here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GQCx4GIRvvo
I have signed on as a cosponsor to this important bill from my colleague Rep. Luke Messer http://fox59.com/2016/05/18/indiana-rep-luke-messer-files-legislation-to-block-obama-administrations-transgender-directive/
America’s veterans have had to endure yet another indignity at the hands of Barack Obama’s VA. As they have turned on their TVs, scanned their social media, or read their newspapers, they have seen VA Secretary Bob McDonald compare VA healthcare waiting lists to waiting in line for rides at Disneyland. This callous and flippant comparison shows that the Obama Administration’s top leaders do not take this crisis seriously. As any veteran can tell you dealing with the VA isn’t a day at Disneyland. Veterans have died while waiting to receive the care they have earned. Our veterans deserve so much better then statements like this and I am committed to providing real reform to the VA so that it actually takes care of our veterans." Disney was founded by veterans and it tracks wait times and wants their guest experience to be an enjoyable one—VA still has a lot to learn. http://www.redstate.com/brandon_morse/2016/05/23/boom-disney-responds-va-secretarys-comments-measuring-wait-times/
The massive spring regulatory agenda of the Obama Administration. This is why I have cosponsored the End Executive Overreach Act. This bill would: •Defund Any New Executive Orders– Reasserts Congress’s power of the purse by eliminating all federal funds, fees, or resources that may be used to implement an executive order from the time of enactment of the bill until the end of the Obama Presidency on January 21, 2017. •Suspend Agencies Rule Making Authority– Prevents further burdensome red tape regulations from this Administration by not allowing agencies to finalize any Major Rule or Significant Rule from the time of enactment of the bill until the end of the Obama Presidency on January 21, 2017. We cannot afford to give Barack Obama a free pass for the rest of his presidency. As the clock ticks down on his time in office, the pace of executive orders and new regulations will only increase. I urge the House pass this bill and prevent a tyrannical end to a presidency that has stretched the Constitution to the breaking point. http://www.reginfo.gov/public/do/eAgendaMain?operation=OPERATION_GET_AGENCY_RULE_LIST¤tPub=true&agencyCode=&showStage=active&agencyCd=0000&Image58.x=38&Image58.y=8&Image58=Submit
