  • Many Existing and Would-Be GOP Leaders Opposed Budget Deal

    Roll Call ^ | October 17, 2013 | David Hawkings
    All of the congressional Republicans with viable 2016 presidential ambitions voted against the bill enacted overnight to reopen the government and increase federal borrowing. So did two members of the Senate GOP leadership and three members of the party’s House leadership. The opponents also included a majority of the Republicans who are chairmen of House committees and most of the members of the House GOP caucus who aspire to election to the Senate next year. While the Democrats were unified in their support for the legislation, a review of Wednesday night’s back-to-back roll calls in Congress reveals just how divided...
  • Congresswoman Holds Back Tears Urging Democrats to Ban Late Abortions

    life news ^ | Steven Ertelt
    Democrats came to the House floor yesterday one after another refusing to support a ban on late-term abortions the House eventually passed on a mostly part-line vote. One congresswoman, in describing how abortion kills unborn children, was so distressed to see so many lawmakers ignoring their plight she had to hold back tears during her speech on the House floor. Rep. Virginia Foxx, a North Carolina Republican, told her colleagues: “May we, in love, defend the unborn. May we, in humility, confront this national sin, and may we mourn what abortion reveals about the conscience of our nation.” “Madam Speaker,...

    The Daily Caller ^ | 10/25/2011 | Nicholas Ballasy
    Republican Rep. Virginia Foxx of North Carolina, a member of the House Rules Committee, said on the House floor that Congress did not pass President Barack Obama’s jobs bill because his own party “did not want to support” the plan. Foxx added that the bill was filed by “request” of the President, as first reported by The Daily Caller on September 27. “The reason the President’s so-called jobs bill has not been passed in this House is because the Democrats did not support it. It was introduced by request,” Foxx said Tuesday on the House floor. [READ ORIGINAL FOR VIDEO]

But few bunking arrangements are stranger than this.</p> <p>To be clear, there aren't many in Congress who have more antipathy for the health care law than Foxx.

    Meredith Shiner and I write today on the GOP's persistent trouble recruiting, retaining and attracting women, particularly in the House. The exception seems to be among hard core conservatives, with Reps. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) and Virginia Foxx (R-NC), emerging as populist folk heroes on the right. But that doesn't necessarily make them appealing to independent and moderate women, says Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), herself a rising star among a larger class of Democratic women. Asked about Foxx and Bachmann, Wasserman Schultz, blasted away: “This is a party that doesn’t respect women, a party that doesn’t believe women are equal to...

    RUSH: Now, we all know that yesterday the House of Representatives, in voting to eliminate all private sector student loans and turn that into a totally government-run program, we were also told that Darrell Issa slipped in a bill there that would defund ACORN and that the house overwhelmingly voted for that. Ah, ah, ah, ahhh! Representative Virginia Foxx also with WPTF radio, the Bill LuMaye Show, asked her a question. "Do we at some point defund them entirely where both the Senate and the House come together and say, 'No more federal tax dollars'?" FOXX: They'll let something like...

    Innocent-seeming questionnaires, tests, and surveys are increasingly being disseminated by government officials so that they have complete histories on every citizen. At this writing, Republican Congresswoman Virginia Foxx of North Carolina is busy apologizing for her politically incorrect gaffe in arguing against legislation that would expand federal hate-crime laws to include sexual orientation. She pointed to the infamous Matthew Shepard case as a “hoax” inasmuch as Shepard’s killers appeared to have been interested in drugs, not sexual-identity issues. Were Foxx a teenager today, she would be spared the necessity of balancing her conservative views on sexuality against the left’s Orwellian...
  • Olbermann Slams Rep. Virginia Foxx Over Her Insensitive Matthew Shepard Comments (Video)

    For once, I actually agree with Olbermann. Rep. Foxx should indeed apologize. Matthew Shepard was brutally beaten, tortured and murdered in Wyoming. His story is portrayed in the play and film "The Laramie Project". Personally, I disagree with "hate crime" legislation because all crime can be considered "hateful". Does it really matter why someone is murdered? Murder is by definition a "hate crime". Is there really any need to complicate the laws? That said, Rep. Foxx's comments are truly "despicable", insensitive and shameful.

    There’s nothing ‘insensitive’ about Virginia Foxx By Dwight Sparks - The political wars are fully engaged with the election only two weeks away. I’ve been amused at the off-base attacks on Congresswoman Virginia Foxx. Her Democratic critics have called her out of touch and insensitive. More accurately, she must be the most visible, accessible member of Congress ever to serve this area. She has spent weekends and time when Congress is at recess crisscrossing the district, turning up at public events large and very small. She has the energy of a kindergarten student. Anyone in the 5th district who hasn’t...

In continuing coverage, Talon News recently spoke with candidate Virginia Foxx in an exclusive interview. In a positive, calm manner, Foxx says she realizes criticisms levied against her from other candidates vying for the congressional seat are all a part of the "dirty process" of running for political office. "This is one of the most painful things about politics," Foxx told Talon News. "However, I believe that...
