2014: Looking Back

Communications • December 31, 2014

It’s been an exciting year for House Republicans. Advancing hundreds of pro-growth, commonsense bills  — passing 742 — and pursuing solutions that will put Americans back to work while lowering costs at home have kept us quite busy. But our work is far from over (in fact, we’re just getting started), but as we prepare to ring …

Whether it’s online courses and student resources; job applications and career information; online answers and directions — the internet is increasingly essential. Unfortunately, many state and local governments are pursing an “internet tax” — using it as an opportunity to make money on a …

Where’s the Save American Workers Act? You guessed it.

Communications • October 27, 2014

President Obama’s health care law redefines “full-time employees” to anyone who works 30 hours or more — rather than the standard 40-hour work week. For 2.6 million Americans, this means less opportunity, a smaller paycheck, and greater stress. House Republicans quickly saw the danger in reducing the American work week. Already three out of four of …

Stopping government abuse? #StuckInTheSenate

Communications • October 24, 2014

Federal government employees hold a great amount of responsibility — unfortunately within recent years, we’ve seen grave abuses within these positions. Whether it’s Lois Lerner’s conservative targeting through the the IRS to Jeffrey Neely’s federally-funded lavish Vegas trip, it’s no wonder that only 34% of Americans trust their government a “fair amount” (and only 9% trust the government a “great amount”). House …

So what’s the deal with Keystone?

Communications • October 21, 2014

Last spring, House Republicans passed H.R. 3, the Northern Route Approval Act. But this job-creating bill, which approves the construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline, is still stuck in the Senate — along with over 300 House-passed solutions. The Keystone XL Pipeline would have tremendous economic impact on the American people. Not only would it create over 42,000 …

When Does Washington Get Squeezed?

Speaker John Boehner • September 26, 2014

Republicans are working every day to lower costs at home so that it’s easier for middle-class families to live, save, and invest. On the president’s watch, those things have only gotten tougher.  Prices have gone up while paychecks haven’t.  Hardworking people are left squeezed and often overlooked. Every day, I hear from constituents in Southwest Ohio who …

Are we better off than we were 4 years ago? Definitely not

In 1980 Ronald Reagan asked the famous question: “Are you better off today than you were four years ago?” The question challenged Americans to think about their economic trajectory – and in answering, many realized they needed change and elected Ronald Reagan as President. In the last few weeks, President Obama has asked the same question …
