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 ...

They protect and defend – spending months away from home and loved ones, risking their lives for the cause of freedom. The sacrifice of the U.S. Armed Forces is great, and these men and women in uniform know all too well the danger they face. They know it’s not a game, and shouldn’t be treated as one. Ensuring our military has the resources they need to operate effectively and protect the American people is nothing to be delayed or held hostage by one signature.  But with just a stroke of his pen, President Obama recently vetoed a bill to authorize funds for our nation’s troops. The President’s veto of his own military threatens national security and plays politics on the back of our troops. His veto of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2016 is disappointing, especially since this bill included the funding levels requested by the President himself.  This was an opportunity for President Obama to lead on a bill
Health care should work for patients, not against them. It should be about patient-centered care where families have the option to get the coverage they both want and need without breaking the bank. Instead, high premiums, less choice, and more red tape are just some of the concerns I have consistently heard about the President’s health care law from families and businesses in the Sixth District of Virginia.  It’s clear to me that this law is not working to improve the affordability or availability of health care in the United States. I opposed the so-called Affordable Care Act from the start, and have voted to repeal the law and various portions of it numerous times. Congress has continued to look for ways to stop the President’s health care law and lessen the effects of its mandates.  This week, the House of Representatives took a significant step forward in dismantling major pillars of the President’s health care law.  Earlier this year
Put down the pen and phone, Mr. President. That was the message from a federal appeals court just a few days ago. In a victory for the Constitution and the American people, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld an injunction preventing President Obama’s executive amnesty on immigration from being implemented.  Next week marks one year since President Obama announced that he would act on his own to change our immigration laws. These actions would allow up to five million unlawful immigrants to stay in the U.S. without facing the consequences of the laws they have violated. It was alarming that this President, or any president for that matter, would so boldly take powers that the Constitution places with the Congress and ignore the limitations placed on his authority. His decision to act unilaterally to rewrite our nation’s immigration laws is an affront to the Constitution and threatens to unravel the careful system of checks and balances enshrined in this docum
The American Idea – it’s what guided our Founders in creating a system of self-government. It’s at the root of American innovation, and the push by generation after generation to go places we have not before gone. The American Idea is about opportunity and freedom to prosper. As a Congress and as a nation, this Idea is something we cannot afford to ignore. Just a few days ago, our nation witnessed an important moment in our history. Representative Paul D. Ryan of Wisconsin was sworn in as the 54th Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives. In his first remarks, Speaker Ryan said “I believe, with every fiber of my being, we can renew the American Idea. Now, our task is to make us all believe.” A new Speaker marks a new day, and I look forward to a new culture of conservative leadership in the House. I am heartened that Speaker Ryan has made changing the way the House operates a top priority. He has emphasized how the House will have a return to r
