House Republicans Volley Back At Biden

Adding more fuel to the fire in the spat between the GOP and Vice President Joe Biden, conservative lawmakers slammed Democrats' "runaway federal spending" in a conference call with reporters this morning. "Evidently, nothing excites a liberal Democrat more than the pornography of excessive spending," said Rep. Dan Lungren, R-Calif., who was "absolutely stunned to see Joe Biden's quote." The vice president insisted on Tuesday that, "We're turning this around. Now, it's not happening as fast as any of us would like, and certainly not fast enough for the millions of folks who are still out of ...

Fleming Claims “Solyndra Affair Has Harmed People ...

The House Natural Resources Committee held a hearing on the future of oil and natural gas development — the 20th oversight hearing that House Republicans have called on drilling, compared to only four on renewable energy development. While Rep. Don Young (R-AK) took home the quirk prize by sporting a propeller-topped beanie that he said represented President Obama’s energy policy, one of the strangest assertions came from Representative John Fleming (R-LA), who followed up a question to Secretary Salazar about whether fracking had caused any “deaths or serious injuries to ...

Multi-Millionaire Rep. Says He Can’t Afford A Tax Hike

Rep. John Fleming (R-LA) appeared on MSNBC with Chris Jansing this morning to attack President Obama’s new deficit reduction plan, which includes some tax increases on the wealthy. Taking up the typical GOP talking point, Fleming said raising taxes on wealthy “job creators” is a terrible idea that kills jobs because many of these people are small business owners who pay taxes through personal income rates. Fleming is himself a businesses owner, so Jansing asked, “If you have to pay more in taxes, you would get rid of some of those employees?” Fleming responded by ...

USA TODAY | Fleming: The IRS Commissioner Must Go
If this election cycle has taught us anything, it’s that the American people are sick and tired of what they see as a double standard: one set of rules for the powerful and politically connected, and another for ordinary Americans. For years, the IRS abused its power to target groups based on their political views—a fundamental violation of American citizens’ First Amendment rights. To this date, no one has been held accountable.   IRS Commissioner John Koskinen was brought on to head the powerful agency in the wake of the Tea Party targeting scandal. President Obama said he was appointed to “restore the public trust.” In reality, he continued the pattern of stonewalling and obstruction.    With two congressional subpoenas and three preservation orders in place—under IRS Commissioner John Koskinen’s watch—422 back-up tapes containing as many as 24,000 emails related to the investigation were erased by IRS employees in Martinsburg, West Virg
Fleming Supports Financial Package for Israel
WASHINGTON, D.C. –Congressman John Fleming, M.D. released the following statement after the White House announced a 10-year Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Israel.   “Securing a U.S.-Israel MOU is a priority for both our countries. The United States is committed to our friend and ally, the State of Israel, and has vocally advocated for Israel maintaining its qualitative military advantage, and ensuring that Israel is able to defend herself against looming threats in the region. In fact, on Tuesday I voted in favor of a bipartisan resolution to expedite the MOU, knowing how critical this funding is for Israel and the stability of the region.     “Even so, it concerns me that the President has asked Israel to forgo funding that Congress may appropriate beyond the terms of this Memorandum. The MOU signals long-standing and ongoing cooperation between two democracies and should be the starting place Congress uses when
Fleming Resolution Forces IRS Commissioner Impeachment Hearings
WASHINGTON, D.C. –Congressman John Fleming, M.D. released the following statement after the Judiciary Committee announced it would hold a formal impeachment hearing next Wednesday with IRS Commissioner John Koskinen under oath.   “I am glad to see that the resolution I filed has led to a formal impeachment hearing of John Koskinen. He needs to be put under oath and this never would have happened without our efforts to bring this issue to the forefront.  We’ve pressured Leadership to move forward with regular order on this issue. However, if regular order is not followed through with we still reserve the right to bring up a privileged resolution again in November and go directly to a vote.       “The American people and those that were wrongly targeted by the IRS deserve answers and accountability. Hopefully we will get them through these hearings.”
Fleming Responds to Koskinen Hearings
WASHINGTON, D.C. –Congressman John Fleming, M.D. released the following statement after the Judiciary Committee held a hearing on the impeachment of IRS Commissioner John Koskinen where Commissioner Koskinen testified under oath.    “I’m glad that Commissioner Koskinen finally agreed to testify before the Judiciary Committee under oath, even though he continued to deny any conscious wrongdoing. While he admitted his previous statements under oath to Congress were incorrect, he claims he made them solely based on incorrect information provided by his subordinates.”   “As Chairman Jim Jordan pointed out, if any American being audited by the IRS lost their documents and destroyed the back-ups, they would never get away with it. However, Koskinen, Lerner and Clinton continue to get away with it. Yet again we see one set of rules for Americans and another set for high-level government officials. We also learned that during Koskinen’s tenure there were no con
