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 PROMISE OF CHRISTMAS
Then pealed the bells more loud and deep: “God is not dead, nor doth He sleep; The Wrong shall fail, The Right prevail, With peace on earth, good-will to men.” For many, this year has brought moments of great joy and for others grief. Some families have seen their share of challenges, and our nation as a whole faces new threats from those who seek nothing more than to spread terror. We need the reminder from Longfellow’s poem Christmas Bells that the wrong shall fail, the right will prevail, with peace on earth, and goodwill to men. There is no greater promise of this than is found at Christmas.  We have so many gifts to celebrate. Right at the top of the list are the religious freedoms and liberties we have as Americans that make the very celebration of this season possible. It’s our men and women in uniform standing guard at posts near and far who have preserved these gifts. I would be remiss to not acknowledge that during the holi
CONGRESSIONAL MAIL BAG: WHAT YOU'RE SAYING
Each month, my office receives thousands of phone calls, letters, e-mails, and Facebook messages from folks across the Sixth District about current issues before Congress. Here are a few of the inquiries I have received recently:  I am concerned that the Department of Labor’s proposed retirement rule will limit my right to choose a financial professional who fits my budget and needs.  Like you, I’m concerned that this rule will limit retirement choices and have a negative impact on many small businesses that offer retirement plans for employees as well as individual hardworking Americans. Among other things, the rule mandates that financial advisers with less than 100 participants and less than $100 million in plan assets would be defined as a “fiduciary.” This means that financial advisers to small retirement plans would be faced with increased compliance requirements, costs, and liability. Financial advisers would consequently increase the c
PUTTING PATIENTS FIRST
Should patients or big government mandates come first? That’s the question Congress recently asked President Obama by sending a repeal of his signature health care law to his desk.  Just a few days ago, in the first major vote of 2016, the House of Representatives passed the Restoring Americans' Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act, which would dismantle the Affordable Care and Patient Protection Act, known as Obamacare, and defund Planned Parenthood. As I review the letters and calls coming into my office, and talk with folks in communities throughout the Sixth District, the stories I hear of those who have been hurt by this law far outnumber those who have benefited. My constituents want me to put them first, and I am proud that this was the first major piece of legislation considered this year. Sending this bill to the President’s desk is not simply about repealing Obamacare. It is about crafting a health care system that works for patients, not against
NEW YEAR, NEW OPPORTUNITIES
A new year brings new opportunities for our country. It’s a time to refocus and, with a fresh perspective, look ahead at all that must be accomplished. As we ring in 2016, Congress has much to do to address the priorities of the American people.  The tasks before us touch every American. We must continue our work to dismantle the President’s health care law, and reform the health care system in a way that puts patients first. Congress also has a responsibility to the American people to promote an economic environment that fosters job creation and opportunity. One way to do this is through meaningful, comprehensive tax reform. I have yet to hear an argument for maintaining our current tax code, but I hear many for why we need a new one. Tax reform will not come overnight, but we should not delay taking a first step. We must also lessen the grip of federal red tape on job creators, and hold federal bureaucrats accountable for imposing heavy burdens on America’s
