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 ...

Tax reform framework
Dear Friends, 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.  We also need to simplify the tax code.  House and Senate Republicans and the Administration have jointly released a unified framework for tax reform.  We have a great opportunity to reform the tax code in a way that lowers taxes and fuels stronger economic growth while simplifying the burdens placed on ordinary taxpayers.  Both Congress and the President are committed to this goal. Below is an overview of the tax reform framework.  For the full framework and more information click here. I encourage you to email me, send mail, or call my office to give feedback on this initial tax reform framework.  As always, I appreciate hearing from you. Sincerely,
