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 ...

THE REAL COSTS OF ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION
Sarah Root and Joshua Wilkerson were like many young people you might know. Sarah just graduated from college and Joshua was a senior in high school. Both had much life left to live. But instead of living out their potential, they are two of the many innocent victims of the irresponsible policies of the Obama Administration that allow the presence of dangerous criminal aliens in American communities. At a Judiciary Committee hearing a few days ago, we heard the heartbreaking stories of their deaths at the hands of unlawful aliens. Unfortunately, these stories are an all-too-common reality.  The public has been misled by the policies of the Administration, which categorize only certain “serious” criminal aliens as worthy of immigration enforcement. The Administration’s so-called immigration enforcement priorities have allowed tens of thousands of criminal aliens to stay in the United States. At least 95 percent of convicted criminal aliens known to the Departm
ANSWERS, ACCOUNTABILITY, AND THE ADMINISTRATION
Fair representation and accountability – that’s just the starting point for what the American people deserve from their government. At the very core of the United States is a government of the people, by the people, for the people. However, all too often we’ve seen bureaucracy stand in the way of the efforts of the People’s House to seek answers on behalf of the public, leaving Americans in the dark.   Two prime examples of this Administration’s stonewalling are incidents where American lives were tragically lost. As a result of Operation Fast and Furious, a failed gunwalking scheme that allowed 2,000 weapons to fall into the hands of Mexican drug cartels, U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was shot and killed. Countless other crimes have also been committed by weapons traced back to this debacle.  Separately, and on the other side of the world, the 2012 terrorist attack on the American embassy in Benghazi resulted in the death of four
SEEKING A MORE TRANSPARENT FEDERAL RESERVE
Don’t you want to know how the federal government spends and leverages your taxpayer dollars? Odds are that the answer is a resounding “YES.” However, the Federal Reserve, the nation’s central bank and an independent federal agency, has been subject to very little scrutiny. That shouldn’t be the case, especially given that the Federal Reserve, or the Fed, is responsible for monetary policy decisions that affect every American. Following the recent financial crisis, the Fed has continued to expand its powers and a number of questions about a lack of transparency regarding various transactions have come to light. When the Fed acts willy-nilly to implement new policies it can lead to inflation for hard working Americans trying to make ends meet or more economic uncertainty for folks trying to plan for the future. The Fed’s budget is not subject to congressional oversight in the same way as many other government agencies. They are funded by fees and
THE PAINS OF TAX SEASON CALL FOR A NEW TAX CODE
There are very few certainties in life. One of those, however, is that Tax Day comes around each year. By the time the April 18th deadline passes to submit 2015 tax returns, millions of Americans will have experienced our broken tax code firsthand yet again. A very appropriate quote by an unknown author sums up the feelings of many during tax season: “People who complain about taxes can be divided into two classes: men and women.”  While that may draw a few laughs, in all seriousness tax season is quite possibly one of the most dreaded times of the year for many Americans. It reminds us of the complexity, unfairness, and frustrations of our tax code.  Families and businesses in the Sixth District and across the country will have spent weeks, and in some cases months, completing their tax returns. That doesn’t come without its costs. Each year, folks spend sizable amounts of their hard earned dollars on tax software and tax preparers.  Enough is
