    Senator Mike Lee ^ | Sept 12th, 2013
    Today, Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) released the following statement in favor of Congressman Tom Graves' (R-GA-14) legislation to defund ObamaCare: Lee: "Congressman Tom Graves has introduced a bill today that would continue to fund all the functions of government and protect the American people from ObamaCare for at least one year. The House should pass this legislation immediately and send it to the Senate. The president has delayed the implementation of ObamaCare for big business, unions, and his special interest supporters. Congress should act to delay it for the rest of the country, as well."

    Hoping to avert a possible government shutdown at the end of the month, Rep. Tom Graves introduced a bill Thursday that he and dozens of his conservative colleagues believe could solve a looming fiscal fight facing Congress.But his proposal, which defunds the president’s health care law, is likely to draw intense opposition from Democrats should it come up for consideration.With current government funding set to run out Sept. 30, the end of the federal fiscal year, Graves’ legislation would fund the government just below post-sequester levels for the next 12 months while delaying and defunding the Affordable Care Act,  also...

    Rep. Graves Says He Can't Support Fiscal Cliff Bill That Does Not Address Spending; Corker Says It's Time To Move On To Spending Cuts Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-09) issued the following statement on the fiscal cliff legislation passed by the U.S. Senate: “The Senate bill offers no commitment to debt reduction, only a demand from taxpayers to bail out Washington. As taxes rise, freedom diminishes. Without any spending reforms, the debt crisis continues. I cannot support a bill that protects Washington and promotes bigger government at the expense of my constituents and future generations. “What began in 2011 as an...

    WASHINGTON — A year into Tom Graves’ career in Congress, the time came to set his course. By his telling, the Republican from Ranger faced an ultimatum from third-ranking Republican Rep. Kevin McCarthy late this spring: Commit to McCarthy and the GOP leadership’s “whip team,” or side with the Republican Study Committee, which is tasked with moving policy as far to the right as possible. Graves chose the conservatives. He described the parting as amicable, while McCarthy, through a spokeswoman, declined comment. With the RSC, Graves chose conservative orthodoxy over adhering to party leaders’ agenda, as seen when he recently...
  • Dem. Rep says using the term “ObamaCare” violates House rules

    This just in, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) said this on the floor of the House this morning: “In two previous gentlemen’s statements on the amendment, both of them referred to the Affordable Care Act, which is the accurate title of the health care reform law, as ‘ObamaCare,’” Wasserman Schultz said, referring to a previous statement by Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA). “That is a disparaging reference to the President of the United States. It is meant as a disparaging reference to the President of the United States. It is clearly in violation of the House rules.”

    The following twenty-two House members stood firm and opposed the Boehner bill, which is nothing more than a vehicle which will be sent to the Senate, reworked by Harry Reid into something even worse than it already is, and then returned to the House. Boehner will dutifully bring it up and the Tea Partiers who voted for it will then vote against it, but it will not matter. Boehner and Reid will pass the Bill in the House with Democrat votes and Obama will sign it. The votes today cast by conservatives, many of whom are good people, are very...
