Joe Barton tries to take down the BCS — again

Texas Rep. Joe Barton, R-Ennis, is joining Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., in forming the Congressional Collegiate Sports Caucus, which they said would seek to address pressing issues facing the college-sports industry — among them the current system used to determine college football’s national champion. Additionally, Barton is introducing legislation to strip BCS of its right to market a national championship game unless the participants are determined through a playoff system instead of the current computerized ranking system. It’s similar to what he introduced a few years ...

Joe Barton Idiotically Blasts the Amazon Kindle Fire

Texas Congressman Joe Barton delivered an ignorant rant on the Amazon Kindle Fire's Silk web browser. While it's true that there are some potential privacy issues consumers need to be aware of, Barton's take on the matter is misinformed, misleading, and idiotic. According to Ars Technica, Barton said: My staff yesterday told me that one of our leading Internet companies, Amazon, is going to create their own server and their own system and they're going to force everybody that uses Amazon to go through their server and they're going to collect all this information on each person who does ...

Exclusive Interview with Congressman Joe Barton

 Joe Barton was hanging around the cabin with the other 12-year-old kids at Camp Wisdom, a Boy Scouts facility in Dallas, when one boy pulled out a deck of cards and they started to play poker. He had never played before and couldn't win a hand. Although there was nothing at stake, it was embarrassing. He went home intent on learning the basics of poker. "I got my dad, who was a good poker player, who played a lot in the military during World War II, to teach me how to play and I never had any problem in the Boy Scouts again," Barton said. That was when Barton knew poker was a game ...

Barton, Committee Colleagues Pursues Greater Transparency, Requests Health Care Enrollment Figures
Committee Leaders Seeking Analysis of Federal Marketplaces & First Week Enrollment Numbers, Also Request Monthly Updates on Enrollment WASHINGTON, DC: House Energy and Commerce Committee leaders today sent a request to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius seeking data on the number of individuals who have purchased a health care plan through the law’s new exchanges. In the months leading up to open-enrollment, administration officials insisted everything was “on track,” going so far as to assure members less than two weeks before launch, “Consumers will be able to go online, they will be able to get a determination of what tax subsidies they are eligible for, they’ll be able to look at the plans that are available where they live, they will be able to see the premium net of subsidy that they would have to pay, and they will be able to choose a plan and get enrolled in coverage beginning October 1.” Despite over three and a half years to prepare, last week
Rep. Barton votes NO on Continuing Resolution that enables ObamaCare
WASHINGTON: Congressman Joe Barton (R-Ennis/Arlington) released the following statement after voting against the latest continuing resolution plan that only partially delays ObamaCare: “The House continues to negotiate against itself. While Republicans attempt to forge a compromise, the Senate Democrats stand their ground. The result is a progressively worsening deal for Americans. We have gone from a bill which would have completely defunded ObamaCare to a one year delay; and tonight voted on a just partial delay. My constituents haven’t been shy in sharing their dislike for this law and their desire to cut federal spending. Tonight, I turned their voices into a vote and said no to the continuing resolution that enables ObamaCare. “No one wants a shutdown, including me and my House colleagues. However, I am opposed to borrowing a trillion dollars or more every year with no plan to balance the federal budget and keep it balanced. I don’t normally support these temporary stop
Barton, Committee Colleagues Continue Investigation of Obamacare IT Systems
New Questions for Administration and its Contractors After Pre-Rollout Assurances of Functionality Fall Short, Consumer Frustration Continues to Mount WASHINGTON, DC – House Energy and Commerce Committee leaders today sent letters to Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, Quality Software Services, Inc. (QSSI) Chairman Tony Singh, and CGI President and CEO Michael Roach regarding the “glitches” that have defined the start of open enrollment in the federally facilitated marketplace (FFM). The administration and the companies that received contracts from HHS repeatedly assured the committee in advance of the system’s rollout that everything was “working the way it is supposed to” and “on track.” It has become evident over the past ten days that the FFM, managed by HHS, was not ready. The committee requests that the administration and the two contractors that were primarily responsible for building the FFM explain the testing that was conducted, the
Rep. Barton votes NO on Debt Deal
WASHINGTON: Congressman Joe Barton (R-Ennis/Arlington) released the following statement after voting against the Continuing Appropriations Resolution, 2014 – more commonly known as the debt deal: "I voted no because like many of the deals before it, this one simply delays the crisis, it doesn’t solve it. We have to stop kicking the can down the road and display some political courage. “We can’t keep borrowing hundreds of billions of dollars a year with no plan in place to balance the federal budget and keep it balanced. “I hope the President and the supporters of this deal are sincere about wanting to cut spending and reform the budget, but based on past actions I’m not willing to wager our nation’s fiscal future on words alone. “This vote represents the end of the 2nd quarter, not the end of the game. When we come out of half time, I will continue fighting to make sure both parties get serious about the nation’s spending problem. We need to continue to push for f
