He has served since 1995, when the House seated its first Republican majority in forty years.

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.

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 statement on House failure to pass health care bill
U.S. Congressman Mac Thornberry (R-Clarendon) released the following statement after it was announced that the “American Health Care Act,” H.R. 1628, would not receive a vote today in the House of Representatives: “I am incredibly disappointed that the House did not pass the bill to repeal and replace Obamacare. The bill had its flaws, but it would have been a key first step toward reducing the cost of health insurance, giving patients more say over their health care, and improving Medicaid. It would have also eliminated taxes that are driving up the cost of health care for everyone. It was, without a doubt, better than what we have now under Obamacare. “I stand ready to vote for other proposals that can improve health care in this country. But those who refused to support the bill today share some of the responsibility for what is to come in the weeks, months, and years ahead under Obamacare.” ###
Thornberry, Military Service Chiefs warn of serious consequences without proper military funding
U.S. Congressman Mac Thornberry (R-Clarendon), chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, held a hearing with the Service Chiefs of all branches of the military to hear their assessments of the consequences of the failure to pass the 2017 Department of Defense Appropriations bill with supplemental funding. The appropriations bill passed the House earlier this year with strong bipartisan support, but it has stalled in the Senate. “There is widespread agreement that funding cuts under the Budget Control Act, plus a series of continuing resolutions, coupled with the pace of required deployments have damaged the U.S. military.  I believe that the damage has gone far deeper than most of us realize, requiring more time and more money to repair than is generally expected,” Thornberry said in his opening statement. He continued, “The immediate issue before us is the expiration of the current continuing resolution on April 28. The House passed a full appropriations bill fo
Thornberry statement on BLM’s admission of error in Red River surveys
U.S. Congressman Mac Thornberry (R-Clarendon) released the following statement in response to the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) announcement that it used incorrect methodology in three surveys that are the basis for the federal government’s claims to private property along the Red River: “The BLM’s admission that it used incorrect methodology in these surveys and the decision to suspend the surveys is welcome news. “The portions of the river that the agency has surveyed strayed widely from the accepted gradient boundary survey method established by the Supreme Court in Oklahoma v. Texas. It is encouraging that the BLM has admitted their error and that all administrative action will be suspended until the matter is resolved. I will continue working with the landowners, local and state officials, and Senator Cornyn (R-TX) until this issue is resolved once and for all.” A copy of the BLM letter can be found here.
