For too long we have known about abuses
in the treatment of our country's veterans. From long wait times to
falsified lists, the Department of Veterans Affairs has
failed to properly care for the needs of the men and women and their
families that have given so much to protect our way of life. Congress
has yet to hold anyone accountable for the failures of these agencies
and our veterans continue to pay the price for these failures. As your congressman I will
hold those responsible accountable and work hard to make sure that
our veterans are given the care that they have earned and deserve.
Texas Border Security
While Texas taxpayers are assuming the financing of border security to the tune of 800 million dollars, congress continues to fail the citizens of this country by neglecting its responsibility. Texans have been forced to fund the shortcomings of the federal government to stop human trafficking, the smuggling of illegal drugs and weapons, and potential dangerous criminals and terrorists. Not only will I file legislation to have the federal government reimburse Texas for providing this basic Constitutional responsibility, I will also work to insure that the government spends tax payer's money only on its core Constitutional responsibilities.
As most Americans agree, Obamacare highlights the Federal Government's violation of the 10th Amendment. We cannot continue to allow the Federal Government to distance itself from Constitutional requirements. I will file a bill to repeal ALL federal laws that violate the 10th Amendment.
firmly believe the Second Amendment was written to make sure that the
people of the United States of America could defend their country,
their homes and families, and their neighbors from enemies both
foreign and domestic. But specifically the Second Amendment is our tool to defend against a tyrannical government
that would deny the rights of the citizens. I believe that “...the
right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Please watch.
Presidential Abuse of Power
Executive Actions and Orders should become null and void if Congress does not approve them within one year.
Our national debt is fast approaching a level that is unsustainable. We must look at every law and regulation as it relates to its impact on the national debt. We must pull back from the $20-trillion dollar national debt and stop the deficit spending that is bankrupting our country.
