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 on President's New Afghanistan Troop Cap
Today, U.S. Congressman Mac Thornberry (R-Clarendon), Chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, released the following statement in response to the President's announcement that new troop levels in Afghanistan will be set at 8,448.   “The precision of the President’s new Afghanistan troop cap would be comical were its consequences not so tragic for our mission and military readiness.  It is time that the President level with the American people about what it will really take to achieve our goals in Afghanistan, and how much it will cost. The truth is that many thousands more Americans are performing military functions in Afghanistan - than even the current troop cap authorizes.  The President refuses to pay for them, and his budget does not have room for the troops he is committing.  For all of the bluster about funding troops in harm's way, it is the President who proposes to extend the vital mission without any resources behind it.  The White Hou

While many of them seek to take advantage of older citizens, everyone should be alert for these and other creative attempts by criminals to obtain money,” Thornberry said. In one of the
