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. Graves, House Pass Historic Obamacare Repeal and Replace Bill
Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) voted for and the House passed the American Health Care Act (H.R. 1628), Phase 1 of President Trump’s healthcare plan. Speaking of the historic vote, Rep. Graves said: “The first bill I introduced after I was elected to Congress in 2010 was legislation to defund Obamacare. Over the last seven years we kept fighting, we never gave up, and now we’re finally passing a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare that will hit the desk of a president who will sign it. This is Phase 1 of the President Trump’s three phase healthcare plan. Taken together, the president’s plan will reduce health insurance premiums, increase access to care and put patients first.” H.R. 1628 includes the MacArthur-Meadows Amendment that gives states additional flexibility by allowing them to apply with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to waive certain federal mandates if the state can prove its plan will benefit consumers.   Speaking of the chan
American People, Georgia Score Big Wins in President Trump’s Government Funding Bill
Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) issued the following statement after voting in favor of the Consolidated Appropriations Act (H.R. 244), which funds the government through this September:   “This five-month government funding plan is a win for all Americans. Among the many victories, our plan starts rebuilding the military, increasing funding by $25 billion from last year. Our plan terminates, rescinds or consolidates more than 150 government programs or initiatives. Our plan protects life by renewing the Hyde amendment, which prohibits federal funding of abortions. Additionally, as chairman of the Financial Services Subcommittee on Appropriations, I’m especially glad to report that we slashed spending by eight percent in that section of the bill. “From funding the Savannah Harbor project to providing resources for cyber operations at Fort Gordon to blocking an attempt to interfere with our state’s water rights, President Trump’s government funding bill is also full of b
Rep. Tom Graves Urges Full Delay of Fiduciary Rule
Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14), along with 123 of his House colleagues, sent a letter to Department of Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta urging him to fully delay the fiduciary rule while the president’s review of the rule is underway.    “This rule will have significant consequences for our constituents, many of whom would prefer to continue receiving advice that was previously available,” reads the letter.  “The delay that appeared in the Federal Register on April 7, 2017, contravenes the presidential memorandum which directed a new economic analysis of the Rule and the impact it is having on the marketplace. Rather than facilitating an orderly review period, the preamble illogically concludes that the record supports applying major aspects of the Rule before the President’s review and updated economic analysis are complete. This is nonsensical.” The full text of the letter is below. Click HERE to view the signed letter. Dear Secretary Acosta: C
Rep. Graves, GA Delegation Members Urge Secretary Perdue to Rescind Obama Poultry Regulations
Today, Members of the Georgia Congressional Delegation, including Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14), sent a bipartisan letter to Secretary of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Sonny Perdue urging him to rescind harmful Grain Inspection, Packers & Stockyards Administration (GIPSA) rules issued in the 11th hour of the Obama administration. In the letter, the Members urged Secretary Perdue to review and rescind three poultry-related regulations, which would inflict billions of dollars of economic harm to American agriculture, exceed GIPSA’s statutory authority, and represent an arbitrary and capricious abuse of federal regulatory authority. Joining Rep. Graves on the bipartisan letter were Reps. Buddy Carter (R-GA-01), Drew Ferguson (R-GA-03), Rob Woodall (R-GA-07), Austin Scott (R-GA-08), Doug Collins (R-GA-09), Jody Hice (R-GA-10), Barry Loudermilk (R-GA-11), Rick Allen, (R-GA-12) and David Scott (D-GA-13). “We urge you to promote American business, eliminate stifling
