Texans oppose insurance mandate

Wichita Falls Rep. Mac Thornberry said he hopes the Supreme Court agrees with him that President Barack Obama's 2010 health care overhaul is unconstitutional. Thornberry and other Republicans have long taken issue with the law's individual mandate requiring Americans to buy health care insurance, starting in 2014, or pay a penalty. "For the federal government to require everybody in the country to purchase a commercial product — and you will be fined and what not if you don't, I think is unconstitutional and a vast overreach of federal power," Thornberry of Clarendon said. The Supreme ...

Thornberry talks defense budget cuts at Bell Helicopter

After President Obama released a new strategy last week in a proposal to cut the nation's defense budget by almost 500 billion dollars, there have been a lot of questions about how that strategy is going to be implemented. Wednesday, Congressman Mac Thornberry paid a visit toBell Helicopter and spoke about that strategy and what that could mean for Bell, and our area. One thing the congressman really wanted to emphasize was that the new strategy is just that -- a strategy. "Remember, the administration budget is just a proposal.

FY18 National Defense Authorization Act passes the House
WASHINGTON-The U.S. House of Representatives passed the conference report of the Fiscal Year 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) by a vote of 356 to 70. The conference report will now be approved by the Senate and sent to the President for signature. This is the third NDAA under U.S. Congressman Mac Thornberry's (R-Clarendon) chairmanship of the House Armed Services Committee. “Over the last several years, we have seen an increase in threats and a decrease in funding for our military. This year's NDAA begins to rebuild our military and to ensure we can defend the American people,” Thornberry said. “It also supports our troops. Our servicemembers volunteer to risk their lives to protect us and our freedom. We owe them the best that our country can provide - the best equipment, in the best shape, with the best training." The bill authorizes the full 2.4% pay raise for our troops. It repairs our ships, planes, and other equipment. A
House passes "Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017"
WASHINGTON- U.S. Congressman Mac Thornberry (R-Clarendon) is a cosponsor of H.R. 38, the "Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017," which passed the House today by a vote of 231-198. "The Second Amendment to the Constitution establishes a citizen's right to keep and bear arms, yet it is constantly being attacked. The ‘Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017,’ helps protect those rights," Thornberry said. "Just like we expect one state to respect a driver’s license from another state, we should expect one state to recognize another’s concealed carry permit." The "Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act of 2017" allows law-abiding citizens with a state-issued concealed carry license or permit, or people from states that do not require a permit, to carry a concealed handgun in any other state that allows concealed carry, as long as they follow the laws of the state. H.R. 38 also includes provisions to ensure government age
Happy Veterans Day
Dear Friend, Today, November 11, 2017, is Veterans Day - a day that offers us a chance to show our gratitude to those who have bravely served our country in the military and to honor what they have sacrificed for our freedom and our security.  It is also a chance to recognize the families of veterans, who also serve our nation. Our part of Texas is home to many of our country’s heroes. Last month, Robert Earl Lance Jr., a World War II veteran, was laid to rest in Hereford, Texas.  In 1941, Robert and three other teenagers from Hereford headed up to Oklahoma City to join the Marines.  Robert was assigned to the 2nd 155mm Howitzer Battalion, later known as “The Unknown Battalion.”  His battalion played an important role in the Pacific Theater – Guadalcanal, Tulagi, Tarawa, Saipan, Guam, and Iwo Jima.  Following the war, Robert returned to Hereford and ran the family farm for the remainder of his life with his wife and children. Another hero from Texas
House passes Tax Cuts and Jobs Act
WASHINGTON- U.S. Congressman Mac Thornberry (R-Clarendon) voted today in support of H.R.1, the "Tax Cuts and Jobs Act," which passed the House by a vote of 227-205. "It is time to create jobs, grow the economy, and improve everyone’s standard of living. We need to let hard working taxpayers keep more of the money they earn - that is exactly what this bill does," Thornberry said. "This tax reform is our chance to lower taxes, simplify the tax code, and give our economy the boost it needs." Highlights: Lowers individual tax rates for low- and middle-income Americans to 12, 25, and 35 percent and maintains a 39.6 percent rate for high-income Americans; Increases the standard deduction and eliminates special interest deductions; Establishes a new family credit and expands and increases the Child Tax Credit; Preserves the mortgage interest deduction for e
