Government already intrudes into almost every aspect of our daily lives – from our healthcare, to the taxes that we pay on almost everything we touch. Government regulations are stifling our businesses, limiting creativity and innovation, and restricting economic growth. Just ask a small business owner. Just ask a teacher. Just ask a farmer.

During his keynote address on January 27th at the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), U.S. Senator Scott (R-SC) announced the introduction of his Creating Hope and Opportunity for Individuals and Communities through Education (CHOICE) Act, part of his Opportunity Agenda. With the CHOICE Act, Senator Scott, a leading voice for school choice in the Senate, looks to expand educational opportunities for children with disabilities, children living on military bases, and children living in low-income communities.
Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was at the center of the cover up and she has apparently agreed to appear before Gowdy’s committee. It is unlikely she’ll tell the truth, but it will make interesting political theater with Gowdy grilling her. Democrats will lavish praise on her and throw her softball questions and work to undermine any attempt by Gowdy to get honest answers out of her. She is a practiced liar as is her husband and Barack Hussein Obama.
“There is one common pattern occurring everywhere across the planet and that is radical Islamist, who hate our civilization, are prepared to cut off our heads, and are determined to impose their religion by force.”

“Over the past several years, the Obama Administration has used a combination of education grants and waivers to coerce states into adopting Common Core State Standards, which has increased federal control over our schools’ instructional content, academic standards, and assessments.

The pro-abortion Democrats in Congress are now offering the “Women’s Health Protection Act,” which would ban a whole range of pro-life bills being pushed by social conservatives like Congressman Duncan. Democrats want no restrictions whatsoever on the killing of unborn babies – even to the point of not wanting pregnant mothers to see their child in the womb through an ultrasound.
Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR), a former combat officer who fought in Afghanistan and Iraq, is outraged by the Obama Administration’s mistreatment of Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu – and the Administration’s weakness in its dealings with Iran, a state-sponsor of terrorism. Sen. Cotton appeared recently on Hugh Hewitt’s talk show and gave a keynote speech at The Heritage Foundation earlier this month. He is a GING-PAC endorsed Senator.
Numerous GING-PAC endorsed lawmakers attended the Iowa Freedom Summit over the weekend. The event was sponsored by Congressman Steve King (R-IA) and Citizens United.
Among those attending were Mike Huckabee, Senator Joni Ernst (R-IA), Congressman Jeff Duncan (R-SC), Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), former Senator Jim DeMint, and many others.
Congressman Bradley Byrne (R-AL) appeared on MSNBC yesterday to discuss pro-family legislation aimed at banning abortions after 20 weeks. The Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act was to have been voted on yesterday, but was pulled at the last minute.
The House had barely passed the “No Taxpayer Funding For Abortion Act” on January 22, when Obama issued a statement that he would veto it. The bill, H.R. 7, will permanently prohibit federal funding for abortion and funding for any insurance plan that includes abortion on demand.
