Many North Carolinians have questions because of Obamacare. Sec @
, we hope, will have answers.
You don't know the half of it. I raise you my infamous "ag. sweater."
Wishing you and yours a safe & blessed Thanksgiving.
An ex post facto caveat doesn't un-break a promise.
Wonderful time speaking to students at Salem College yesterday. Thanks to Jenna and Madison for the invitation.

Ready to preside over evening debate in the House of Representatives. Watch live:
Was a wonderful event and wonderful program. So good to see what you're doing for young North Carolinians. Thank you.

reforms; here’s what that means for you:
Needs an answer: If gov can't get its act together administering insurance, will Americans be taxed for opting out?
Given the magnitude of debt, solution offered by Senate doesn't adequately improve America’s long-term fiscal health

: Updated tally of bills passed by the House that keep govt running & fund critical services:
Voted to ensure Guardsmen & Reservists are paid, veteran benefit apps aren't delayed. Strong bipartisan majority!
Standing ovation on the House floor for the United States Capitol Police.
Thank you to Capitol Police for keeping us safe. My staff and I are safe and are keeping any who may be injured in our prayers.
Good ? re. funding cancer research from @

for standing w…
Do you agree?
The House is looking to resolve our differences w/Sen Dems, but it's hard to compromise alone.
: Veteran's funding and national parks funding defeated by Leader Pelosi - why won't they negotiate?
opens amid “glitches,” “meltdowns”
While POTUS, Senate Dems refuse to provide
House's most recent proposal to keep gov open funds services, protects troop pay, provides
, & stops medical innovation tax.
House is working to stop a shutdown. Waiting for our Senate counterparts to come back to work.
There is still time to find common ground to keep the government open. But the Senate needs to show up to work first.
Our challenges require bipartisan solutions. Senate needs to be at the Capitol so it can be part of the solution.
It's hard to work together with the Senate to keep the government open when the Senate is MIA.
Tonight voted again to keep the govt open to the American people & give families a break from Obamacare uncertainty.
House will vote again today to keep govt open. Will also vote to put Obamacare & its uncertainty for families on hold
: WATCH @
refuse to negotiate the debt ceiling, claim “there’s no more cuts to make”
Americans aren't interested in spin, they're concerned about whether they'll be paying more for health care on Jan 1.
Where's the affordability for North Carolinians?
Genius in its brevity, endurance, and forethought to limit & separate the governing powers established therein - the U.S.
Buffett on Obamacare: "would much rather see another plan that really attacks costs...I mean, the American public is not behind this bill."
Scrap Obamacare and start over. Buffett Rule 2.0?
Flags flying half-staff over the Capitol to remember the victims of yesterday's Navy Yard tragedy.
Develop a verification process, or delay the subsidies. Better yet, give every American a break & repeal Obamacare.
Congress has a responsibility to protect working families from Obamacare's fraud-susceptible subsidy "honor system."
Agree w @
. We mourn the lives of the 4 Americans lost in
& pledge justice on their behalf.
Remembering September 11, 2001 and 2012. The champions of freedom will stand firm as the last best hope of earth.
After careful consideration and review, I will not support the current proposal to authorize military force in Syria.
The President is right to seek congressional authorization prior to any military engagement in Syria...

Every American deserves a reprieve from Obamacare's mandates.
If Obamacare's employer mandate is being delayed, so should its individual mandate. Basic fairness.
: Rep. @
believes "If business gets a break, you deserve one too."
WH's apparent choice to lead from behind on student loan interest rates sure isn't working.
Glad you caught that.
Why vote to preserve this problem for the future? Students & taxpayers deserve a long-term solution
Politicians shouldn't have to vote on this every year. Students & taxpayers deserve long-term certainty on rates.
Students have a message for @

Differences btw WH proposal & House GOP proposal "are not that significant," so why the lack of hustle in the Senate?

Senate political procrastination has to stop. The House passed a plan much like the President's. Crickets from the Senate
