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.

"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 ...

The text of the letter is below. “I am writing to respectfully request a 60-day extension of the Emergency Use of CRP Lands for the Texas Panhandle Fires. “As you are aware, many counties in the Texas Panhandle recently experienced devastating wildfires. With almost 500,000 acres burned, thousands of miles of fence destroyed, and more than 2,000 head of livestock killed by smoke and flames; livestock producers are in dire need of places to house remaining livestock while fencing is re-established in these disaster areas. “While the 30-day emergency use that has been approved by the USDA is very welcome and appreciated, I have heard from several producers that will not be able to build fences in time to meet the short deadlines.

Thornberry votes for Veterans Affairs reform bills
U.S. Congressman Mac Thornberry (R-Clarendon) voted this week in support of two bills that will reform the Veterans Affairs (VA) hospital system and provide greater support for veterans. “Meeting our commitments to our veterans is one of the most important responsibilities of the federal government. These bills make important reforms to the VA system to address some of the deficiencies within the system and allow it to better serve our nation’s veterans,” Thornberry said. “These men and women have put their lives on the line to keep our country safe, and they deserve our best in return.” H.R. 1259 would:  • Allow the VA Secretary to remove or demote a VA employee due to poor performance or misconduct; • Enhance whistleblower protections; • Allow the Secretary to reduce the pension of individuals in senior executive service positions who committed a felony that influenced their job performance; and • Allow the Secretary to suspend, reprimand, or admoni

Nothing can ever replace the loss of their loved ones,” Thornberry said. “For those who have lost livestock and property, it is important to assess the losses as soon as it is safe and begin the assistance process with the USDA.” To qualify, you must have legally owned the eligible livestock, poultry,
