GOP Freshmen Hone Their Message


Does the Republican Party have a messaging problem? Members of the House freshman class seem to think so. And in order to try and remedy the situation, seven of them met on Thursday morning in a Longworth House Office Building conference room, to discuss what they needed to be better at communicating to the American people. They also invited one member of the media to hear them message about messaging. It was all very "meta." Rep. Tim Scott, R-S.C., organized the meeting with Reps. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, Morgan Griffith of Virginia, Steve Southerland of Florida, Cory Gardner of ...


Congr. working to save Roanoke, Lynchburg mail proces.center


Sometime after May 15th the Roanoke and Lynchburg mail processing plants will close. In a release the postal service says the May 15th moratorium was to give Congress time to enact legislation. Back in November, 9th District Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-Salem) told WSLS he was co-sponsoring a bill, that would repeal the requirement forcing the Postal Service to pay health benefits up front for 75 years, and in turn save money and prevent closures. That bill is still in committee. So we went back to Griffith to ask him, did Congress not do enough? "Could we have encouraged them to take it ...

Statement on Griffith Amendment to Reform Congressional Budget Office
Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) issued the following statement after the House of Representatives voted on his amendment to H.R. 3219 abolishing the Budget Analysis Division of the Congressional Budget Office (CBO): “While a majority of the House did not agree with my amendment, the debate succeeded in bringing scrutiny to the repeated failings of the CBO. Even colleagues who did not support the amendment recognize that the CBO needs to improve its methods in order to provide Congress with accurate and timely projections. After the introduction of my amendment, House Budget Chairman Diane Black said on the floor that her committee plans to hold hearings on this matter. She agreed that the CBO’s modeling needs improvement. The fact that hearings will be held is a success in and of itself. “As a side note, the CBO determined that my amendment ‘would have no net effect on budget authority or outlays.’ I question the methodology that would project this as an outcome of elimi
Congressman Griffith's Weekly E-Newsletter 7.28.17
So Now What? The United States Senate is letting down the American people by failing to advance any solution for the disaster that is Obamacare. It has rejected its own repeal and replace plan, it has rejected the 2015 repeal, and in the latest failure, it rejected the “skinny repeal” plan What was the skinny repeal plan? It was a plan to repeal Obamacare’s employer and individual mandates and a few other things. The Senate leadership reached out to House Speaker Paul Ryan to get assurances that if skinny repeal passed, the House of Representatives would agree to a conference committee. The conference committee is the process whereby the House and the Senate get together to work out their differences on legislation. Speaker Ryan publicly gave his assurances that if the skinny repeal had passed, the bill would be sent to conference. The skinny repeal plan wasn’t going to be the final shape of Obamacare’s replacement. If the skinny repeal were passed and signed into law, I b

Griffith Introduces Amendment to Reform Congressional Budget Office
Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA), along with Congressmen Jim Jordan (R-OH), Mark Meadows (R-NC), and Scott Perry (R-PA), today submitted to the Rules Committee an amendment to the Make America Secure Appropriations Act of 2018. This amendment would abolish the Budget Analysis Division of the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) and transfer its duties to the Office of the Director through the use of the Holman Rule. Griffith stated: “CBO is meant to help Congress evaluate legislation, but I do not believe the agency as currently constituted can do so effectively. Too often, predictions made by CBO turn out to be far off the mark. For example, it overestimated by millions the number of people who would enroll in the Obamacare exchanges. I have also cited in the past its prediction that a sale of wireless spectrum would be revenue-neutral when the sale in fact earned $40 billion for the government. “When someone gives you bad advice again and again, why would you trust them to help
