Rep. Bob Goodlatte needs to reverse his support of SOPA


Many websites are “going dark” today in order to raise awareness of Congress’s Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA). With any huge bill there is good stuff and bad and the same can be said of SOPA. But the road to [tyranny] is paved with good intentions. What really has people upset and is pitting Silicon Valley against Hollywood are provisions that allow big business to shut down websites that allegedly are linking to or promoting pirated material. If a film studio believes their movie is being pirated they can have an internet company or a search engine block the site. This is a ...


Goodlatte comments on House passage of bill intended to...


... prevent abuse of eminent domain Congressman Bob Goodlatte issued a news release this week after the House of Representatives passed HR 1433, a bill that would withhold federal economic development funds for two years to any locality or state that uses eminent domain to take land for a private entity. You might recall some legal and political scuffling over this in Roanoke a couple of years ago. Interestingly, the state no longer allows this type of action — and in fact the General Assembly had already passed that bill when the motion to condemn was filed. Indeed, the motion was ...

A COMMON SENSE RESPONSE TO EBOLA IN AMERICA
If you had never heard of Ebola before, chances are that you have now.  Ebola, a serious and often fatal virus, has made its way to the United States; but that’s not a reason to panic. Ebola has been present in Africa since the 1970’s, and can only be transmitted through direct contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person. The current outbreak in West Africa has severely affected the countries of Guinea, Sierra Leone, and Liberia, but it is important to remember that these countries have much weaker health care and sanitation systems than those in the United States.  With that being said, the federal government should be doing everything possible to prevent the further spread of Ebola in the United States. The Department of Homeland Security announced this week that all foreign nationals traveling from Guinea, Liberia, or Sierra Leone to the United States will have to travel through one of five major U.S. airports where additional Ebola screening measu
A REAL ECONOMIC RECOVERY
Over the past few weeks, I’ve traveled throughout the Sixth Congressional District visiting numerous businesses, getting a firsthand look at the hard work their employees do, and listening to their concerns about the direction of the economy. Whether large employers or small, family-owned businesses, or if they are located in Roanoke, Front Royal, Amherst, or Waynesboro, their comments have followed a common theme: the federal government’s policies of more regulation and higher taxes are standing in the way of job creation.  Despite promises of hope and change, the current Administration continues to push failed policies in the faces of the American people and the economy has yet to grow strong enough for many families and businesses to feel much-needed relief. Regulations with major economic impacts, like those on farmers and homebuilders in the Chesapeake Bay watershed, increase the cost of doing business. Protecting the Bay is important, but we must use common s
REMEMBERING THOSE WHO HAVE SERVED
President Calvin Coolidge once said, “The nation which forgets its defenders will itself be forgotten.” While these words were spoken long ago, they are still words that we must abide by today. We cannot forget our defenders of freedom who have sacrificed so much for this great nation. As Americans, we must remember the men and women who have answered the call to serve both in times of war and peace. Our veterans have stood guard on distant battlefields and here at home to protect the liberties at the core of the United States. It is altogether fitting that we honor the sacrifices these men and women make on our behalf by ensuring they receive the care and support they deserve both during and after their service. Unfortunately, the scandal within the Department of Veterans Affairs, that was brought to light earlier this year, is a stark reminder that we must remain vigilant and steadfast in this effort. Cover-ups, backlogs, and delayed services do not best serve the nea
PROTECTING YOUR HEALTH CARE PLAN
If you like your health care plan, you can keep it. Right? Well, despite President Obama’s promises that under the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, you could keep your health care plan, millions of Americans have discovered that is simply not true.  Now, a year after the troubled rollout of Obamacare, millions more Americans will find out that they are also losing their health care plans, including many thousands of Virginians. Many individuals who work for small businesses are now losing their employer sponsored plans because the plans do not comply with all of the costly Obamacare mandates. There have been reports of many small businesses across that nation that have already slowed hiring, cut hours, or raised prices in order to prepare for higher coverage costs or to avoid new mandates stemming from the health care law. A recent survey of businesses by the New York Federal Reserve found that 20 percent are "reducing the number of workers and/or raising the share of
