Rob Bishop could be next tea party target in Utah

Congressman Rob Bishop may be the next target in the tea party’s broad offensive against the Utah Republican establishment. Jacqueline Smith, one of the state’s most active tea party organizers, is exploring a run against Bishop and plans to decide in the next week or two if she will jump in the race. “He has been a very popular representative for the past decade but recently some of his votes have been anti-liberty,” said Smith, from Wanship, in Summit County.

Bishop Casts Vote to REPEAL Obamacare
The U.S. House of representatives has voted to pass the American Health Care Act (AHCA). Rep. Rob Bishop (UT-01) released the following statement after voting in favor of the measure: “The problem with Obamacare is that it has raised premiums significantly, and it has caused people to have their workhours slashed and even lose their jobs. Americans have been either forced into a government program or penalized with a fine. Those who became newly insured were pushed into a plan that was doomed to fail. The passage of today's healthcare reform bill is the first step to allow people to have choices that meet their needs, not forced into what the government demands. I understand the pains of Obamacare first hand. As a member of Congress, I too was forced to comply with this mandate. This bill is a significant step forward for all those who seek quality, affordable, and accessible health care.”     Learn more at PASSTHEBILL.GOP
Bishop Proposes Constitutional Amendment
Rep. Rob Bishop (UT-01) introduced H. J. Res. 100, a proposed amendment to the United States Constitution that would provide states with the authority to repeal any federal rule or regulation if two-thirds of the states are in agreement. Upon introduction of this legislation, Rep. Bishop offered the following statement: “The founding fathers crafted the Constitution to include the concept of checks and balances. Those checks and balances are not simply to provide horizontal protections, but also to ensure there are vertical safeguards between state and federal governments. This amendment halts the erosion of federalism that has chipped away at states’ powers for the past five decades. This is a tool for states to use when the executive branch of the federal government goes too far.” 
Rep. Bishop Pens Letter to Secretary of Defense, James Mattis
Rep. Rob Bishop UT-01 is leading an effort to clarify the impact of a recent Presidential Memorandum which places a “freeze on the hiring of Federal civilian employees.” Civilian depot workers, like the thousands employed at Utah’s Ogden Air Logistics Complex, are protected by law* from such freezes. Rep. Bishop, and a bipartisan congressional coalition, have sent a letter to Secretary of Defense James Mattis seeking acknowledgment of these legal protections. Rep. Bishop stated, “All federal employees deserve to be treated with clarity and fairness. As the Trump Administration moves forward finding ways to ease the burden on the taxpayer, I will continue in my efforts to ensure Utah’s workers enjoy the protections the law provides. President Trump has been clear in his desire to make our military stronger, and Utah is uniquely situated to support that mission. The civilian workers play a critical role in defending our nation.” Excerpt from le
Bishop Congratulates Orbital ATK on Utah Job Creation
Orbital ATK has announced the early production of hardware for its Next Generation Launch system. This program is estimated to create 200 new jobs in Utah, primarily at the company’s Promontory, UT location. This new family of Solid Rocket Boosters called the “Castor 300” series, is aimed at lessoning US commercial reliance on Russian rockets. Rep. Rob Bishop released the following statement:   “After almost a decade of false starts and unsure policies by the federal government, it is nice to realize the private sector has stepped up with a program that creates Utah jobs and, more importantly, drives space exploration and American self-sufficiency in the years to come. Thanks, Orbital ATK."
