Tom Graves says bank broke promise


U.S. Rep. Tom Graves filed an affidavit Thursday reiterating that he was wronged by the bank that is suing him and a state lawmaker over a failed hotel in Gordon County. In nearly identical six-page documents, Graves, R-Ga., and state Senate Majority Leader Chip Rogers, R-Woodstock, claimed Bartow County Bank changed the terms of the loan the two used to open Tich Hospitality and the Oglethorpe Inn in Calhoun. The documents say the bank then declared the company and the lawmakers in default. Other recently filed court documents indicate Graves and Rogers used money the Georgia Department of ...


Bob Barr contemplating a run against Tom Graves


From the GOP grapevine: Former Libertarian presidential candidate Bob Barr has told friends that he’s contemplating an attempted return to Congress – and a return to the Republican fold. Barr, a longtime resident of Cobb County, would challenge U.S. Rep. Tom Graves, R-Ranger – a tea party favorite. In August, the Legislature redrew Graves’ district to include heavily populated Floyd and Paulding counties – which now make up 38 percent of the electorate. Barr has told acquaintances that he would move to Paulding. We put a call into his office this morning, ...


Rep. Tom Graves' attorney: Bank was at fault


U.S. Rep. Tom Graves' attorney says the disputed loan agreement between his client and a Northwest Georgia bank is not valid because the bank should have known the Georgia congressman couldn't repay the money and it cut the lawmaker some slack when his company couldn't make payments. In court documents, attorney Simon Bloom contends Bartow County Bank never should have issued Graves and his business partner a loan, citing statements in a deposition in which a bank official admitted knowing the partners did not have the money to guarantee the loan. Graves and state Senate Majority Leader Chip ...

Rep. Tom Graves, House Pass Major National Security Bill
Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) released the following statement after voting in favor of the Make America Secure Appropriations Act (H.R. 3219), legislation funding the Defense Department, the Veterans Affairs Department, federal energy and water programs, and the Legislative Branch of government:   “This bill is an America First funding bill that will help keep Georgians and all Americans safe. It provides essential funding to strengthen the military, begin construction of the border wall, improve care for veterans and enhance congressional security. It also expands Georgia’s contribution to our national defense by making key investments in Fort Gordon, Robins Air Force Base and more. I’m proud to help President Trump deliver on his promise to Make America Secure.”    Below is a list of the bill’s highlights: Largest rebuild and increase in military funding since Ronald Reagan was president, providing an additional $68.1 billion to strengthen the mili
Rep. Tom Graves Slams CFPB Arbitration Agreements Rule
Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14), chairman of the House Appropriations Financial Services Subcommittee, released the following statement after the House passed H.J.Res. 111, which disapproves of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) rule on “Arbitration Agreements:” “The CFPB’s harmful arbitration rule will hurt American businesses and consumers by creating an explosion of lawsuits and a big pay day for trial lawyers. That’s why I included a provision to block the rule in my fiscal year 2018 Financial Services and General Government Appropriations bill. It’s also why I’m proud to support this resolution of disapproval, which sends the CFPB and its ultra-liberal backers a clear message that we won’t let the rule stand. “Additionally, the arbitration rule is a perfect example of why the CFPB must be subject to congressional oversight through the regular government funding process. I included a provision to do just that in my Financial Services Appropriatio
Rep. Graves, House Pass Bill to Help More Vets Attend College
Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) voted for and the House passed the Harry W. Colmery Veterans Educational Assistance Act (H.R. 3218), which the AP called “the biggest expansion of college aid for military veterans in a decade.” “The House is continuing its work to reform veterans’ aid programs in order to provide top notch services and opportunities,” said Rep. Graves. “Particularly important to many veterans is the GI Bill educational assistance program, which is why the House acted today to modernize the program for the next decade. This bill will help more veterans attend college and work toward achieving their dreams. I urge the Senate to act quickly to send this important legislation to President Trump’s desk.” Among its changes, H.R. 3218 increases college aid funding for Guardsmen and Reservists, their surviving spouses and dependents; provides 100 percent college aid funding for post-9/11 Purple Heart recipients; removes time restrictions to use educational benef
Rep. Tom Graves Statement on Senate Obamacare Vote
Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) issued the following statement concerning the Senate’s failure to pass a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare: “While I commend Senator Isakson and Senator Perdue for supporting the legislation to repeal and replace Obamacare, I’m deeply disappointed and frustrated by the Senate’s failure to pass a bill. The House made difficult choices and passed a bill to fulfill our promise, and the Senate needs to do the same thing. We cannot stand back and let the healthcare system implode. We have to keep fighting. We have to rescue the families caught up in Obamacare’s death spiral, which is only accelerating. I’m ready to do whatever is necessary to move this process forward. The American people are waiting.”  ###
