ENG: William McClellan Thornberry, known as Mac Thornberry (born July 15, 1958), is the U.S. Representative from the Texas Panhandle. He has served since 1995, when the House seated its first Republican majority in forty years. The Republican Thornberry represents Texas's 13th congressional district, a GOP stronghold which stretches between the Oklahoma and New Mexico borders. It winds across the Panhandle into the South Plains, then runs east across the Red River Valley. Covering over 40,000 square miles (100,000 km2), it is the second-largest district geographically in Texas and one of the largest (excluding at-large districts in Wyoming, Montana, and Alaska) in the country. It is even larger in area than thirteen states. The principal cities in the district are Amarillo and Wichita ...

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. They don't decide it, Congress decides it. And the President ...

Thornberry votes to repeal and replace Obamacare
U.S. Congressman Mac Thornberry (R-Clarendon) today voted in support of the “American Health Care Act,” H.R. 1628, which passed the House of Representatives by a vote of 217-213. “Passing the American Health Care Act (AHCA) in the House is a major step toward repealing and replacing Obamacare,” Thornberry said. “This bill will help return power back to patients and their doctors while driving down costs. The Senate now needs to step up and pass it or something similar.” Thornberry also stressed that this bill will not touch Medicare benefits in any way. He said his office has heard from some constituents who were worried that the AHCA would make cuts to the Medicare benefits. “That simply is not true,” he said. Legislation, H.R. 2192, also passed today to ensure that provisions in the bill apply to Members of Congress and congressional staff. The AHCA is being considered by Congress under a special procedure known as reconciliation that requires a simple majority (51
Thornberry responds to Trump tax reform proposal
U.S. Congressman Mac Thornberry (R-Clarendon) today responded to President Trump’s proposal to reform the U.S. tax code. “The tax reform outline that was released today by the White House is another encouraging step toward fixing our broken tax code. The proposal would simplify both individual and business taxes with the goal of encouraging economic growth,” said Thornberry.  Among other provisions, the proposal would: • Eliminate the Estate Tax, commonly referred to as the “Death Tax”; • Reduce the number of tax brackets from seven to three; • Repeal the 3.8 percent Obamacare tax on investment income; and • Reduce the corporate tax rate to 15 percent.   “Small business owners, farmers, and ranchers are particularly vulnerable to the Death Tax, making it more difficult for future generations to build upon their family’s hard work,” Thornberry said. “Death should never be a taxable event. All Americans should be able to work hard, build,
Thornberry votes to fund government, increase military spending
U.S. Congressman Mac Thornberry (R-Clarendon) voted today in support of the “Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2017” that passed by a vote of 309-118. “This funding bill is the product of Congress and the White House working together to pass fiscally responsible legislation instead of continuing down the broken path of brinksmanship and partisan politics that we have been on for the last eight years. I am hopeful that the two branches can continue to work together for the good of our country,” Thornberry said. The legislation provides $1.07 trillion in regular discretionary funding through September 30, 2017.  Locally, the bill appropriates funding for national security facilities and programs such as training missions at Sheppard Air Force Base in Wichita Falls and nuclear weapons activities at Pantex in Amarillo. About $3 billion total is authorized for Bell’s V-22 Osprey and helicopter programs, including the procurement of 20 new Ospreys and 26 AH-1Z / UH-1Y h
