  • Democrats’ outrage over Trump ‘sabotage’ of ObamaCare is misdirected
    Posted in Opinion Pieces on October 19, 2017 | Preview rr

    By Rep. Mark Meadows, Rep. Ralph Norman, Fox News If you’ve turned on the news and heard any of the outrage from Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, and others on the left accusing President Trump of “vast, pointless sabotage,” you might assume that the president had repealed the Affordable Care Act last week through executive fiat. Hysteria makes for a nice messaging tactic, but facts... Read more

    Give Us Real Tax Reform, Not a Pig In a Poke Congress shouldn’t repeat the errors that killed the plan to repeal and replace ObamaCare. By Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows Sept. 19, 2017 7:01 p.m. ET Reconciliation is a parliamentary vehicle linked with the budget and designed to achieve specific revenue and spending requirements. This is the preferred approach for certain policy objectives because only 51 votes are required for passage in the Senate. Republicans plan to use this process for tax refo... Read more

  • Rep. Mark Meadows: Congress, don't play politics with Hurricane Harvey relief and the debt ceiling

    by Rep. Mark Meadows | Sep 6, 2017, 12:01 AM Texans are suffering. Texans need help. In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, hundreds of thousands have been left homeless, displaced, and broken. Many families are returning to their hometowns, some still separated from loved ones, to face the heartbreaking reality of losing everything they spent a lifetime working for. For many children, parents, and grandparents of Texas, the road to recovery will be a long and difficult one. Our neighbors in Texas nee... Read more

  • A Common-Sense Approach To Border Security
    Posted in Opinion Pieces on August 16, 2017 | Preview rr Last November the American people went to the polls and resoundingly rejected the “open borders” policies of the Obama administration. They made it very clear that in an age of high tech drug smuggling, heinous human trafficking, and international terrorism, securing our border was a national security priority. Unfortunately, President Obama chose to ignore this problem – putting politics before people, and failed us w... Read more

  • Reps. Mark Meadows and Jim Jordan: The truth behind the CBO
    Posted in Opinion Pieces on July 21, 2017 | Preview rr

    Driving the 480 miles from Columbus, Ohio to Raleigh, N.C., should take you about eight hours. But what if your GPS device insisted you could make the trip in four? Blindly following such an unreliable estimate, even when made by your trusted GPS, would cause you a lot of problems. Congress too often makes the mistake of blindly following projections of the Congressional Budget Office that later prove to be grossly inaccurate. The CBO's reputation among the public and the media may be strong, bu... Read more

  • Trump Russia probe gets special counsel but not Hillary, not IRS? Time to investigate the investigators
    Posted in Opinion Pieces on June 22, 2017 | Preview rr

    By Rep. Jim Jordan, Rep. Mark Meadows, Rep. Jody Hice - June 22, 2017 Former FBI Director James Comey misled the American people during last year’s presidential campaign when he referred to the Clinton email scandal as a “matter,” not an investigation. He did it willfully. He did it intentionally. And he did it at the direction of Attorney General Loretta Lynch. Mr. Comey misled the American people in the early weeks of the Trump administration by furthering the perception that President Trump w... Read more

  • How Russia hysteria paralyzes Congress
    Posted in Opinion Pieces on June 5, 2017 | Preview rr

    By Mark Meadows (CNN)There is a simple reality that often seems lost on many inside the Beltway: The priorities of the mainstream media and Washington elites are not those of the American people. If you've watched cable news any given day since President Donald Trump's inauguration, you've been subjected to near-hysterical coverage of the latest "scandal" that threatens to doom his presidency. You've probably seen pundits, analysts and politicians relentlessly deliver talking points on why Trump... Read more

  • Unlocking the American dream
    Posted in Opinion Pieces on May 28, 2017 | Preview rr

    In his 1989 farewell address, then-President Ronald Reagan offered a simple message that we would be wise to reflect on nearly 30 years later: “As government expands, liberty contracts.” Since before the Great Society” programs of the 1960s, our country has seen a disturbing trend of just that — government expansion, leading to a bureaucracy with heavy involvement in the lives of Main Street Americans. The explosion of regulations — 229 major regulations since 2009 at a cost of $108 billion annu... Read more

    Interview on Pre-Existing Conditions As you’ve probably heard me say many times by now, protecting people with pre-existing conditions was one of my chief concerns throughout the entire healthcare debate. In fact, the issue of pre-existing conditions was among the reasons I opposed the original version of the AHCA back in March. While the bill is not my ideal solution, I believe that after weeks of negotiations and substantive changes from the original version, the AHCA now strikes a positive b... Read more

  • Three Criteria for Health Reform
    Posted in Opinion Pieces on March 15, 2017 | Preview rr

    By TED CRUZ and MARK MEADOWS Updated March 15, 2017 9:27 p.m. ET Republicans have a historic opportunity to follow through on our promise to repeal ObamaCare. The recent elections that focused on the law’s repeal—2010, 2014 and 2016—were massive GOP victories. The American people gave our party unified control of the federal government, and a mandate for meaningful change. After years of talk, we know that the Republican repeal-and-replace effort will soon be judged by three criteria: Does it ma... Read more
