Rep. Joe Pitts: My Side has Momentum on Abortion

January 21 marked the 38th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court decision declaring that a woman's right to an abortion is constitutionally protected. The anniversary is being marked by opponents of abortion rights, who are holding their annual March for Life on the National Mall today. Abortion rights opponents have a lot to cheer about this year, in large part because the new Congress includes a greater percentage of lawmakers that are on their side. House Republicans last week introduced two bills to scale back federal involvement in abortion services, and House Speaker John ...

Rep. Joe Pitts tied to alleged Pakistani agent

Rep. Joe Pitts (R-Pa.) introduced a resolution in 2004 calling for peace between Pakistan and India in the disputed territory of Kashmir - just days after he had received a $2,000 campaign contribution from Zaheer Ahmad, one of two men charged with distributing Pakistani money to U.S. politicians, allegedly under the direction of Pakistan’s military, according to the Washington Post. Pitts’s office said there was no connection between the resolution and the contribution from Ahmad, who was charged by federal authorities with being a Pakistani agent on Tuesday, along with Syed Fai, ...

Barnes & Pitts tout Unemploy. Benefits for Milit. Spouses

State Senator Tim Barnes and State Representative Joe Pitts thanked Governor Bill Haslam this week for including unemployment benefits for military spouses in his proposed 2012-13 budget. “The Governor’s support of this bill shows that Tennesseans truly care about our military families,” Barnes said. “This is a tangible way to show our support and gratitude to our veterans, and I’m humbled to have the opportunity to do so.” The Governor’s decision marks the first time that such funding has been included in the state budget, after years of work by ...

Statement on Death of Phyllis Schlafly
“Phyllis was a great feminist leader who cut through to the values of faith, family, freedom, life, and traditional marriage. She refused to be intimidated by her most radical opponents, and she mobilized quite a coalition nationwide to support conservative causes. I was proud to have known her and to have had her support." ### Interested members of the media may contact Anna Swick at anna.swick@mail.house.gov
Government Responsible for EpiPen Price Hike?
As the summer sun rises high in the sky, many of us are finishing out the season by enjoying the last remnants of our vegetables and flower blooms. Bees are ever present, seeking out nectar from their favorite flowers, and along with that comes inevitable bee stings. For some, a single sting can cause their throat to swell and heart rate to quicken. For those people, having access to an immediate dose of epinephrine, often in the form of an EpiPen, is crucial. In some cases, it is the difference between life and death.   In the 1970s, a company called Survivor Technologies invented the first automatic epinephrine injector. In 2007, Mylan acquired the right to market the device, and the price steadily rose since then. Last Thursday, Mylan announced the latest price: $600 for a two-pack of EpiPens. In 2007, the first EpiPen pack Mylan manufactured cost $100.                                                                 
Congress’s Responsibility & Zika
Most of us have heard of the illness marked by an unassuming low fever, sometimes accompanied by a rash, that can have a devastating effect on the development of an infant’s brain in utero: the Zika Virus. The virus originally broke out in the Americas in May 2015, and is primarily spreads through mosquitos and with a small number of cases resulting from sexual contact with an infected partner. By January 2016 the World Health Organization predicted the illness would spread to all parts of the Americas with the exception of Chile and Canada. In anticipation, the Obama Administration requested a large amount of funding in February to fight Zika, without a thoughtful plan for how the money should be spent. When Congressional Republicans pushed back, asking for a more thorough strategy before doling out $1.9 billion, the Administration called foul. “If Republicans think that it’s not that important for us to go to great lengths to protect pregnant women and their babies, then th
Clinton Foundation Accepts Donation from Human Rights Suppressing Government
The Clinton Foundation states, “We convene businesses, governments, NGOs, and individuals to improve global health and wellness, increase opportunity for girls and women, reduce childhood obesity, create economic opportunity and growth, and help communities address the effects of climate change.” However, it doesn’t seem that the foundation is practically working to do that.   In 2015, the Foundation took a contribution from a fertilizer company in Morocco called Office Chérifien des Phosphates (OCP), which exploits Western Sahara. The government of Morocco owns the company, which mines natural resources in nearby Western Sahara, which Morocco conveniently claims to own.   Morocco invaded Western Sahara in 1975 for its natural resources and has not relinquished the territory, no matter how hard the Sahrawi region fought or the international world protested. The United Nations ruled in 1991 that Morocco must allow the territory to vote on its independence, but the country refus
