    In the dead of the night, with no committee hearings, no public input and no time to read the bill, the Senate approved a bill written in secret by President Obama, Vice President Biden, Senator Harry Reid and Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi – the “American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012.” According to the Joint Committee on Taxation, the Senate-passed bill would cost taxpayers $3.9 trillion over 10 years and the Congressional Budget Office estimates that it would add almost $4 trillion in debt over the next ten years. The official estimate is that it will increase spending by at least $330...
  • Is John Culberson Presidential Material? (Vanity)

    I was channel surfing about 15 minutes ago and caught a heated debate between John Culberson (R-TX) and Loretta Sanchez (on MSNBC). I had never heard of John before, but he was mopping the floor with Loretta (read: TOTALLY PW3N'ing her) and communicated his points well. All Ms. Sanchez did was blame Bush. Is Culberson an option for President in 2012? Don't know really much about his background (perhaps some long-term FReepers, particularly those in his district, could chime in.) Thanks for your input. And if the video gets uploaded at NewsBusters or YouTube, I will post a direct link...

    VanityDear Congressman Culberson, I am writing you because I find myself with a serious bone to pick with your behavior in Congress. To wit, you are making me a seriously frustrated man. While other people have “representatives” that continuously give them ample cause for high blood pressure if not apoplectic fits, you sir seem to be incapable of the criminal stupidity that infects most of the rest of your colleagues. Your common sense and solid conservative voting record may be good for our country, but it is depriving me of a vital emotional safety valve. As I watch your fellow...

    Last week's story about the uncertainties endured by people who live in or near the route of the I-69/Trans-Texas Corridor prompted many messages of support. But I wish there had been room in the story to quote Steve Huber, a University of Houston law professor who spoke at a January meeting in Bellville on the project. Huber opposed the corridor plan without taking the position — adopted, for instance, by U.S. Rep. John Culberson toward rail on Richmond — that the people most directly affected deserve the most consideration when a route is chosen. "My position carefully avoided the sort...

    ongress helps college students with loan relief By The Rice Thresher Editorial Staff | Thresher Editorial Staff Given a lack of monetary influence, college students are an oft-ignored demographic in the policy making process. That is why we are so glad to see that one of the 110th Congress’ first moves was a bipartisan supported bill to lower interest rates on need-based student loans. H.R. 5, The College Student Relief Act of 2007, will lower interest rates from 6.8 percent to 3.4 percent over the next 5 years. Once fully implemented, this step will save the average borrower — students...

    Austin could lose federal grants because of its approach to policing illegal immigrants under a bill passed Thursday by the U.S. House of Representatives. Rep. John Culberson, R-Houston, who sponsored the measure, said it would apply to Austin and 31 other cities and counties nationwide that prevent police officers from asking people they arrest, detain or stop whether they are in the country legally. Federal law says that state and local governments can't prevent police officers from determining a person's immigration status, Culberson said. "You have human smugglers and drug smugglers and terrorists that are crossing into the United States....

    House committee provision would cut federal funding for college tuition WASHINGTON - States like Texas would be prohibited from using federal funds to provide in-state tuition to illegal immigrants at colleges and universities under a provision approved by a House committee Tuesday. The provision sponsored by Rep. John Culberson, R-Houston, was included in the 2007 spending bill providing federal money for labor, health and human services and education programs. The bill and Culberson's amendment still must be approved by the House and Senate and signed by the president to become law. Culberson said his amendment would prohibit states from allowing...

    An Al Qaida operative who was on the FBI's terrorist watch list was recently captured near the Mexican border, housed in a Texas jail and turned over to federal agents, Rep. John Culberson, R-Texas, said on Friday. "A confirmed al Qaida terrorist, an Iraqi national, was held in the Brewster County jail," Rep. Culberson told ABC Radio host Sean Hannity. "He was captured in Mexico. This was within the last six weeks. He was turned over to the FBI." The Texas Republican said he obtained the stunning information about the terrorist's capture "from the sheriffs who were directly involved. "In...

    Arm-Twisting and Vote-Switching on RX Drug Entitlement by David Freddoso Posted Nov 26, 2003 The final vote on the bill to create the largest new entitlement in decades was 220-215, but it was even closer than that for most of Saturday morning. Rep. Mike Pence (R.-Ind.), who spearheaded the conservative opposition to the prescription drug entitlement (H.R. 1) in the House, called his own efforts a "successful failure." Pointing out that the conservative opposition to the bill grew by six votes since June, he compared the stand by 25 principled House conservatives against the bill to the battle of the...
