    "Paid family leave." You must use those exact words in that exact order or Mika Brzezinski will go into nitpick overdrive. Such was the case on the March 28 edition of Morning Joe when Mika was interviewing Congressman Raul Labrador who committed the high sin of saying several terms meaning just that yet annoying her by not reciting the exact approved liberal term.

    Rep. Raul Labrador (R-Idaho) said on Wednesday that it is too early to judge Paul Ryan's job as speaker of the House, but that to date, he doesn't seem any different from his predecessor Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio). A reporter asked Labrador and others on a panel at the Conversations with Conservatives press event on Capitol Hill whether the recent drop in Ryan’s favorability rating showed that the public -- and even Congress -- is already frustrated with the new speaker’s efforts. ...

    The Washington Times ^ | October 7, 2015 | S.A. Miller & Tom Howell Jr.
    The conservative House Freedom Caucus announced Wednesday that it would back Rep. Daniel Webster to be the next speaker, which would provide enough support to the Republican conference to deny the position to establishment favorite Kevin McCarthy, the current majority leader. Emerging from a closed-door meeting on Capitol Hill, conservative lawmakers pledged to present a united front in support of Mr. Webster, Florida Republican, signaling that the same rift in the conference that forced Speaker John A. Boehner to resign would continue to roil the largest Republican majorities in the House since the 1920s. Members of the Freedom Caucus, led...

    Conservative lawmakers are officially rolling out a new group aimed at advancing a conservative agenda in the House of Representatives after they expressed discontent with the direction of the Republican Study Committee.“Our main hope is that we can represent the voids and valleys for our constituents back home,” Rep. Raúl Labrador of Idaho told The Daily Signal today. “With a small group that is nimble and able to work on issues that are of importance to our constituents, we can make a difference in Congress.”Called the House Freedom Caucus, the group serves as a conservative alternative to the Republican Study...

    The Hill ^ | December 11, 2014 | Cristina Marcos
    The cromnibus had an unlikely savior Thursday afternoon in the form of a lame-duck lawmaker who used to raise reindeer. Rep. Kerry Bentivolio (R-Mich.), who lost his primary earlier this year, was originally among the conservative Republicans who voted against the rule. Without the help of Democrats, Republicans could only lose 17 of their own to pass the rule, which sets up floor debate for the underlying "cromnibus" spending bill. Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) intervened once there were 18 Republican defectors and not a single Democrat voting "yes." Many Democrats will vote against the government spending measure because they...

    Rep. Ral R. Labrador has a message for Republican leadership as they decide how to respond to the presidents executive action on immigration and funding the government beyond Dec. 11: Keep a government shutdown as an option. I dont think anything is off the table, Labrador told reporters at the Capitol Tuesday. I dont think anybody is thinking about a shutdown, but, in negotiations, you never take anything off the table. Thats the first rule of negotiating, and apparently its not one thats been learned in Washington, D.C. Asked if leaders are too gun shy about a government shutdown, the...

    As Republicans challenge the legality of President Obama's unilateral action on immigration, Democrats are firing back with a challenge of their own. "It is clear that they can complain, they can threaten, they can talk about lawsuits, cutting off funding, shutting down the government, in the extreme, even impeachment. But the real question is: Can they govern? Can they govern?" asked Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois, on CBS' "Face the Nation" Sunday. The GOP is weighing their options to undo the president's moves - "a bit of a threat to our democracy," as House Homeland Security Committee Chairman Michael McCaul, R-Texas,...

    One voice chiming in against President Obama's expected immigration announcement is Rep. Raul Labrador, a Republican from Idaho. Labrador is backed by the Tea Party, part of the Congressional Hispanic Leadership Institute, and a former immigration lawyer who represented undocumented residents fighting deportation. He spoke with NPR's Melissa Block ahead of the president's speech, in which Obama is set to announce executive action granting temporary relief to some of the more than 11 million immigrants living in the U.S. illegally.

    In one of the more impassioned speeches on the House floor Friday night, Idaho Rep. Raul Labrador blamed President Barack Obama for the harm that has befallen some of the undocumented child immigrants crossing into the United States. Labrador said Obamas 2012 executive action suspending deportation for some undocumented immigrants brought here as children helped encourage the current influx of tens of thousands from Central America. Many of them are being abused on the journey, he said. Many of these children that are coming to the border dont make it across the river, Labrador said. There are reports of the...

    In the wake of Eric Cantor's shocking primary election loss to Dave Brat earlier this week, the choice to replace him as House Majority Leader seemed a foregone conclusion, as Pete Sessions (R-TX) decision to bow out appeared to seal the decision and ascend Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) to the second highest position in the House. This changed yesterday as Raul Labrador (R-ID) announced he will challenge for the role, a move Dignitas News Service both applauds and has no reservations in providing our endorsement for. Not only would the second-term Representative from Idaho bring solid conservative credentials and voting record...

    With President Obama again pushing immigration reform, Idaho Republican Rep. Raul Labrador says it would be foolish for House Republicans to pass immigration reform and bring it to a conference committee with the Senate-passed immigration bill. You know that I believe in immigration reform, and you know that you and I have disagreed on this issue a little bit, but I will tell you I have always been at least over the last few months against a conference and now more than ever, Labrador said Thursday on The Laura Ingraham Show. And the reason is because I have...

    Idaho GOP Rep. Raul Labrador was back in front of the TV cameras this morning, this time appearing on ABC's This Week With George Stephanopoulos. "We're four days away from reaching the debt ceiling. We gave the president an offer where we would extend the debt ceiling without any requirements ... and I don't see why the president is not accepting that or working with us," said Labrador. "I think it's been very difficult to work with [Obama]. He wouldn't even come to the table to negotiate." And Labrador wasted no time to bring the debate surrounding the federal government...

    CNN's Anderson Cooper and Rep. Raul Labrador got into a heated debate Monday night on "Anderson Cooper 360" as Cooper pressed Labrador on why Republicans aren't allowing a vote on a "clean continuing resolution" to stop the budget impasse. "But why should we?" the Idaho Republican asked. "Because that's how things work," Cooper said. "Your job is to vote on things." "So when Nancy Pelosi was the speaker of the House you asked her to vote on things that the Republican Party wanted?" Labrador responded. "But all of a sudden, just because you don't like the fact that the Republicans...
