Today, Congress passed a spending bill that disregards our duty to future generations, adding billions more to the debt, failing once again to seriously tackle our nation’s deficit. I voted against this legislation because I believe both parties need to come together and find ways to limit spending on both the domestic and defense side of the ledger. Until we do this, the prosperity of our generation and future generations will be anchored to our ballooning deficit.

Kathleen Rice, and a bipartisan group of colleagues who all want a Congress that works for the people.

“America has been watching Hollywood for decades, but not watching closely enough. Behind the red carpets and glitzy premieres is a culture of deceit and depravity. As Congress rethinks our tax code, we need to rethink the way we treat Hollywood by eliminating the business expense deduction for hush money associated with sexual assault and sexual harassment cases.”

I’m thankful that the Oversight and Government Reform Committee approved my legislation to prevent burrowing of political appointees. We need to prevent political appointees of either party from embedding in the bureaucracy and carrying on the agenda of their appointing President long after his or her term is completed.
