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

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 welcomes North Texas veterans to Washington
More than 140 North Texas veterans, family members, and volunteers traveled to Washington this week to tour Congress and the memorials that commemorate their service and sacrifice. U.S. Congressman Mac Thornberry (R-Clarendon) hosted the group today for a special tour of the Capitol where he had the opportunity to speak to them on the Floor of the House. "Sally, the staff, and I are privileged to welcome the Honor Flight to the U.S. Capitol again this year. Each veteran has a special story to tell, and we enjoy hearing all of them," said Thornberry. "It is a wonderful reminder of the unique contribution our part of Texas had made — and continues to make — to defending our freedom and keeping our country safe." Texas Panhandle Honor Flight is a non-profit organization headquartered in Amarillo. The Honor Flights are part of the organization’s efforts to promote awareness and support for our U.S. military service members and veterans, as well as their families. The group also
Thornberry votes for sweeping health reform and research bill
U.S. Congressman Mac Thornberry (R-Clarendon) voted in support of the “21stCentury Cures Act,” H.R. 34, which will speed up the approval of life-saving medical drugs, increase funding for disease and cancer research, for the advancement of medical devices and drugs, for opioid prevention and treatment programs, and for mental health research and treatment. The bill passed the House Wednesday evening by a bipartisan vote of 392-26. “This bill is going to do a great deal to help millions of Americans and their families who are living with the devastating effects of cancer, diseases like Alzheimer’s and diabetes, drug addiction, and mental health issues,” said Thornberry. “This is a patient-focused, fiscally responsible bill that will help advance our medical research, increase the availability of effective medical treatment, and accelerate the development of life-saving medical technologies and drugs.” The legislation will dedicate $5.3 billion for the Food and Drug Admi
Thornberry votes for VA accountability
U.S. Congressman Mac Thornberry (R-Clarendon) voted in support of a bill that would improve accountability measures and whistleblower protections at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). The “VA Accountability First and Appeals Modernization Act of 2016,” H.R. 5620, passed the House by a vote of 310-116.   “When our veterans turn to the VA for health care, they deserve to know they will receive the best service possible, and the majority of VA employees work hard to provide that type of care,” Thornberry said. “If the Secretary does not have all of the tools necessary to hold people accountable and actually use them, it is a disservice to the good employees, the American taxpayers, and most importantly, our veterans.”   H.R. 5620 gives the Secretary of the VA more authority to remove employees for poor performance or misconduct, recoup bonuses or performance awards from employees when appropriate, increase whistleblower protections, and reform the appeals p
Thornberry statement commemorating 75th anniversary of Sheppard Air Force Base
U.S. Congressman Mac Thornberry (R-Clarendon) issued the following statement to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Sheppard Air Force Base: “For 75 years, Sheppard Air Force Base has played an important role in our national defense. In one key area, technical training, it has produced more graduates than any other institution in the Air Force.    “Key to Sheppard’s success over the last three-quarters of a century has been the unquantified support of the people and communities in the North Texas region. While impossible to quantify, the patriotism, pride, and willingness to pitch in to do whatever the base needed has been invaluable. And the men and women of Sheppard have returned the favor by being good neighbors and contributing to worthy causes throughout the area. “Today, it remains at the forefront of American national security – providing essential skills to Air Force and other military personnel and helping build the trust and familiarity necessary f
