    Tags: Veterans Issues

    The summer kicks off this weekend as we observe Memorial Day, but this day is so much more than just the beginning of backyard barbeques, trips to the lake, and summer vacation for our kids. Memorial Day is when we set aside time to remember the men and women who sacrificed their lives so that we can enjoy the freedoms that we have as Americans. It is a day of remembrance and a day to honor those who paid the ultimate sacrifice defending our country. The first time I came to Washington, I was wi... Read more

  • Congress’s Balancing Act

    While Congress has an appetite to spend taxpayer dollars in Washington, it lacks the ability to make tough decisions about discretionary spending when it comes to balancing the federal budget.

Since I came to Washington in 2013, the House has passed three, two-year budgets that each balanced in ten years. But even though Congress passes a balanced budget, they are not required to keep their s... Read more

    This week, we remember the victims of the Oklahoma City bombing and the loved ones left behind on that horrible day 23 years ago. As we mourn the worst act of homegrown terrorism in our country’s history, we also reflect on a term coined on April 19, 1995: the Oklahoma Standard. It is fitting that April is also National Volunteer Month, where volunteers are commended and Americans are encouraged to lend a helping hand. The Oklahoma Standard we all know is a norm that continues to spread not only... Read more

    Under President Obama, continued sequestration squashed the chances of military readiness. Air Force planes couldn’t fly. Navy ships couldn’t sail. Army troops couldn’t deploy. Our military didn’t have the resources necessary to be prepared for growing threats. Some veterans saw unbelievably long lines at Veterans Affairs (VA) medical centers while others didn’t even have access to the quality health care they have earned and deserve. Thankfully, there’s a new Commander-in-Chief in charge. Presi... Read more
