When Parents Have a Choice, Kids Have a Chance

Rep. Todd Rokita (R-IN) • January 30, 2017

Last week was National School Choice Week, a chance to show support and participate in events across the country aimed at giving parents the freedom to make the best decisions possible for their children. No child’s zip code should be the determining factor in whether a student succeeds or fails, and school choice aims to …

School Choice Means the Freedom to Learn

Rep. Dave Brat (R-VA) • January 30, 2017

As a former economics professor for two decades, I believe wholeheartedly in the value of a good education and I have seen first-hand the doors that can open when students have the opportunity to excel. That opportunity stems from the freedom of the mind and the freedom embedded in school choice. It’s fitting that School …

Why I’m Pro-Life

Rep. Robert Aderholt (R-AL) • January 27, 2017

Our beliefs, our ideals and our very way of being are almost entirely rooted in the way we were raised. The values that are instilled in us by our parents as children, are in most cases the values we carry forth with us in our lives as adults. So if someone asks me why I’m …

Standing Strong in Defense of Life

Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI) • January 27, 2017

I am a proud, uncompromising advocate for the unborn. As leaders, we have an obligation to stand up for our nation’s most vulnerable and to give a voice to those who cannot speak for themselves. All too often we fall into the trap of conflating women’s health with abortion, assuming that if one supports protecting …

Just hours before we march….

Rep. Martha Roby (R-AL) • January 26, 2017

We are just hours away from thousands marching for life. This week marks 44 years since the Supreme Court’s infamous Roe v. Wade decision that legalized on-demand abortion in the United States. While many abortion activists celebrate this anniversary, it represents a particularly sad and somber occasion for those of us who are pro-life advocates. …

Why I Proudly Support School Choice

Rep. Rick Allen (R-GA) • January 25, 2017

At the heart of our American values is the belief that each of us, no matter our circumstances, can pursue our own success and happiness through hard work. That’s how a small town farm boy, and the son of two educators, wound up a businessman in Augusta and later a Congressman. The value of education …

Education is About More than Just Test Scores

Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) • January 23, 2017

When talking about school choice, the conversation often drifts down the wonky path of numbers and test scores that support or oppose the right of a parent to choose where they send their children to school.  But, in the context of whether we want a society that supports or limits school choice, the answer is …

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) • January 18, 2017

This year we celebrate 100 years of women in Congress, and the leadership of not one, not two, but three new committee chairwomen. In a new video, Rep. Susan Brooks (R-IN) and Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC), the new chairs of the Ethics and Education and Workforce Committees, and Rep. Diane Black (R-TN), interim chair of …

Seeking Unity on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) • January 16, 2017

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s legacy has been on my heart, especially coming out of such a tense election cycle and as we enter the first African-American President’s final days in office. The American people have given us a moment to think big, to reimagine government, and to be legendary. As I reflect on this …

Pearl Harbor at 75: In the face of danger, we have courage.

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) • December 7, 2016

So often war stories become stories of dates and numbers. When you watch classic war movies or learn about these battles from the safety of an American classroom, you become detached – caught up in an endless list of casualties, names of distant places, and the amount of ships and planes lost. But behind each …
