    Guest Blogger: Rep. David Dreier (R-CA) on Buy American

    When it comes to legislative PR, it doesn’t get much better than “Buy American.” What could possibly be more patriotic than buying American-made products? During tough economic times, mandating that government contractors use only goods with the Made in the USA label doesn’t just sound like good policy, it seems … More

    Guest Blogger: Michele Bachmann (R-MN) on Free Trade Agreements

    Each day in Minnesota and all across the nation, billions of dollars worth of products begin their journey to be sold overseas. American farmers, manufacturers, and businesses rely on exports to strengthen and grow both their bottom line, as well as our economy’s. Free and fair trade agreements help spur … More

    Guest Blogger: Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX) Obama's Health Care Promises

    When President Obama spoke to Congress on his health care plan, I was thinking about the 16-day stretch in July during which his bill was being assembled on Capitol Hill. That’s because so much of what he told us, whether about deficits, illegal aliens or abortions, seemed at odds with … More

    Guest Blogger: Rep. Bill Cassidy (R-LA) on How Baucus Bill Raises Costs

    Lost in the glowing coverage of the Congressional Budget Office’s “favorable” estimate of Sen. Max Baucus’ health care bill is an astounding fact: it doesn’t lower health care costs. Although the Congressional Budget Office estimates says the bill will reduce the deficit by $81 billion, CBO also says, “Cost is … More

    Guest Blogger: Rep. Erik Paulsen on Greater Free Trade Means More Jobs

    The government is spending hundreds of billions of taxpayer dollars attempting to stimulate the economy, but it’s clear these spending programs are not achieving the results we need. Instead, the economy continues to shed jobs. Unemployment figures released last week show U.S. unemployment reaching a 26-year high of 9.8 percent. … More

    Guest Blogger: Rep. Connie Mack (R-FL) on the Free Trade Agreement with Panama

    As the Ranking Republican on the Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere, I am committed to promoting the ideals of freedom, security, and prosperity. And yet we live in an era in which we are reminded every day that freedom is a fragile thing. Around the world, freedom is under attack … More

    Guest Blogger: Rep. Doc Hastings (R-WA) on Energy Security

    One year ago today, a bipartisan Congress voted to lift the ban on oil and gas drilling off America’s coasts and cleared the way for our Nation to responsibly develop more of our own energy resources, reduce our dependence on foreign oil, and create new jobs. Next, the Bush Administration … More

    Guest Blogger: Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX) on Health Care

    Americans love having options. From the food we eat to the cars we drive, we relish making our own choices based on our preferences and what is best for ourselves and our families. Health care should not be an exception. Yet the proposals put forward by the Obama administration and … More

    Guest Blogger: Congressman Kevin Brady (R-TX) On Trade Critical To US Economy

    When President Obama touches down in Pittsburgh for the G-20 Summit he has a chance to lead on trade policies that will level the playing field for American workers and small businesses. Trade is critical to U.S. economic growth and vital to global economic development. Trade – especially exports – … More

    Guest Blogger: Congressman Robert Latta (R-OH) On Constitution Day

    I have always been thankful that so many of our country’s greatest leaders and statesmen were able to be on this earth at the same time and place to draft the Constitution. As a lifelong student of history and government, we were blessed as a nation to have individuals that … More
