I strongly support President Donald J. Trump's decision to once again designate North Korea as a state sponsor of terror. It is an important step in holding them accountable for their wide range of destabilizing activities.

Thanks to The Economist for featuring me in this year's feature: The World in 2018. We have the opportunity to define the political trends of 2018. For those who will defend the liberal world order, we must be persistent and vigilant. We must revitalize our common moral purpose. We must believe that our values are worth fighting for… Together, we can meet the challenges of today’s world, overcome the many threats we face and secure the blessings of liberty for future generations.

Seventy years ago, when announcing the Marshall Plan to deliver American assistance in rebuilding after the second world war, George Marshall began by stating simply: “The world situation is very serious.” That maxim rings more true as we head into 2018 than at any time since 1947. The world faces t...

As Congress continues negotiations for a budget deal to increase the defense spending caps, House Armed Services Chairman Mac Thornberry and I released the following statement: Large majorities on both sides of Congress have voted multiple times to support a $700 billion defense budget, including overwhelming, bipartisan votes in the House and Senate this week in support of the Fiscal Year 2018 National Defense Authorization Act. In addition, the President himself has endorsed a defense budget at this level. Through the National Defense Authorization Act, we believe that Congress has done its due diligence to authorize the appropriate level of funding based on threats, requirements, and missions. This was done following months of deliberative bipartisan oversight, hearings, and negotiations. We expect that any budget agreement will reflect the hard work that Congress has just completed and the reality of today’s dangerous world. We cannot ignore the warnings of Secretary Mattis and our uniformed commanders. This era of forcing our troops to do more with less must come to end. We call on the negotiators to meet Congress’s constitutional obligation to give our troops the resources they need. We must not only set the conditions to pass an appropriations bill at the FY18 NDAA level, we must also ensure the necessary growth in FY19. Without that, President Trump’s promise to rebuild our military will be impossible.

Keith Hansen I'll just keep my deductions. This bill stinks of corporate giveaways. Have a town hall meeting Mr speaker.you have forgotten who you work for.
Patricia Perry $1,182 oh boy that’s amazing . Seriously do you think we’re stupid or something – don’t answer that - I recommend ALL congressmen and senators all go into the individual health insurance marketplace for YOUR health care . You pay for that yourselves ...
Amy Barry You are such a liar. You have proposed to take away the only 3 pathetic deductions I can take. I no longer will be able to deduct interest on my mortgage, home equity or student loans. I live paycheck to paycheck and you lie when you say this will help ...
Joyce Harms As I understand it we get double our personal exemption, but health insurance and medical bills, interest on student loans or mortgages, and State and Federal tax are no longer exemptions. That is crap. I heard Paul Ryan say they took the exemptions ...

In the first 10 months of Donald J. Trump's administration, we've passed almost 400 bills in the House. That's more than passed under the Clinton, Bush, or Obama administrations at this point.

Jonathan Brusco Furthermore that’s 40 bills per month, each an average length of 50-100 pages? Pretty sure you’re just admitting that your congress passes a bunch of stuff they don’t read.
Eileen Ryan Moroski if you did it was to undo all the good things the others have done to protect the country and our water and air. You can be real proud of taking us back over 50 years you idiot
Valerie Anderson If Republicans are going to support cutting taxes, which would really help the middle class all over the country,vthen why are you now going to hold up signing new tax benefits for a year. What is wrong with all of you? Do you hate Americans so much ...
Karen Perry The Gubernatorial race in VA is YOUR FAULT!! “The lesson? If congressional Republicans don't deliver on their promises, Republican candidates up and down the ballot are in big trouble because only one side will be motivated when it comes time to vote, ...
Jack French We know y’all are the biggest, best politicians ever. You and Trump tell us early and often. What important/major legislation has been passed?

In recent months, United States and coalition forces have achieved major gains against ISIS in Iraq and Syria. Building upon the retaking of Mosul in July, U.S. coalition partners have liberated ISIS’s former capital of Raqqa in Syria, the pocket of Hawija in northern Iraq, and, just days ago, the border town of Al-Qaim in western Iraq. The so-called caliphate that terrorists claimed would overrun the Middle East is now a shadow of its former self—a shrinking swathe on a map once defined by an open reign of terror. Unfortunately, however, our challenges in the region remain daunting despite these hard-fought tactical victories. Our relentless focus on destroying ISIS has obscured a troubling reality: the United States lacks a clear, comprehensive strategy that addresses the Middle East in all of its complexity. This is part of the unfortunate legacy that the Obama Administration left for its successor. But nearly one year into the Trump Administration, we lack clarity on essential questions about our nation’s role. Our elected leaders must articulate a comprehensive strategy that reflects these judgments with specificity and detail rather than piecemeal offerings and tactical victories. Congress, with our constitutional role as a co-equal branch of government, and more importantly, the American people deserve no less.

Vice President Mike Pence and The White House agree → It’s time to cut taxes and create jobs right here in America.

Amanda Hodges Not a good tax plan. Will favor the wealthy individuals, corporations and large estates at the cost of the working and middle class and our national debt. We can see where your priorities lie. GOP is for the top percentile, and I really hope the ...
Jonathan Jacobs As I read the comments I sense that reasonable, thinking Americans have grown tired, and then disgusted with your incessant fact-free sales job, or more accurately, attempted hoodwinking of the public. It's time for you to polish up the resume and mail ...
David Ahearn Cutting taxes is a whole different thing than you are pushing! A regressive wealth grab for corporations and the 1%. America knows that trickle down ALEC written bull will not help the country! Kochtopia Kansas is proof!
Joseph Hoffman Cutting corporate and business taxes do not lead to creating jobs. Customers create jobs...Cutting corporate and business taxes increases the bonuses of the C-Suite and enhance the value to the financial stakeholders. Remember when we bailed out the ...
Myles Garcia It's the beginning of the end for you Ridiculous Repugni-Cunts! Especially, you Paul Ryan, and Mitch McConnell -- how dare you back that VILE serpent in the White House! Attach your names to him and you & McConnell will go down in stinging defeat next ...

From now until sunset on November 9th, the flags at the United States Capitol will be flown at half-staff out of respect for the innocent lives lost in Sutherland Springs, Texas.

Mark Schroeder There is a direct correlation, as the NY Times reported today, between the number of guns and the amount of tragic events like the one in Texas, Nevada, etc. Indeed, while Americans are only 4.4% of the world's population, we own 42% of the guns -- and ...
Henya Friedman On Feb 28, 2017, Trump quietly signed a bill into law rolling back an Obama-era regulation that made it harder for people with mental illnesses to purchase a gun. Trump just stated that the shooting in Sutherland Springs Texas was "probably caused by a ...
Pascha Morgan Paul, the people of Sutherland Springs need your prayers...now. Earlier this year, last year or two years ago, you could have possibly avoided your "hearts and prayers" speech by putting some stricter regulations and guidelines on gun ownership. Who ...
Mark Jette God Bless those lives now who entered into the Resurrection of Christ! May their families find comfort knowing this for whatever reason it is Gods will that evil elevate these Christians to Freedoms Martyrdom!
Billy Howard Maybe out of respect you should consider gun regulations that would keep military style weapons out of the hands of civilians, instead of simply pandering every time there is another terrorist attack by some disgruntled white male American.

Jenny Paulsen Kozlowski Can we talk about gun control now? What will it take for you to use the brain and voice God gave you for good rather than just rhetoric?
Fred Staffeld The Speaker should join a movement to amend or repeal the second amendment. Enough is enough. This problem well not get better, and wishing it away will not solve the problem.
Robert Frank Naatz no no no ---- they need laws made by politicians to solve this
Kim Eveland-mendez Lets have common sense gun control, and stop watching as innocent children and adults are slaughtered.
Michael Sheldon I'm getting sick of this. Every day there's some mass killing be it with guns, or run over by trucks/cars. If it's guns, and they're bought legally, then FIX THE VETTING ISSUE. A deer hunter has no business using an AR15. My grandfather, and ...
