Jones votes to rein in federal regulations


Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) and 236 of his Republican colleagues voted for H.R. 10, also known as the REINS Act. The measure, which Jones is an original cosponsor of, would require Congress to approve every major rule proposed by the Executive branch before it can be imposed on American taxpayers. The REINS Act requires Congress to take an up-or-down vote on regulations to rein in costly overreach of federal agencies that stifles job creation and hinders economic growth. Such a process would help safeguard taxpayers from unnecessary and onerous regulations and ensure that federal ...


Jones Votes for Wall Street’s Bad Bill


The Truth or Dare blog points out that U.S. Rep. Walter Jones (NC-3) was one of only three Republicans who voted for the “Wall Street Reform” legislation last week, a bill that even 18 Democrats chose not to support. The bill, listing just a few aspects of what it contains, dictates hiring quotas for financial firms, allows the federal government to take over what it deems “troubled” firms, and will regulate credit cards through the Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection. The blogger contacted Rep. Jones’ office and asked for a statement regarding his decision ...


Jones: Bring troops home instead of cutting school lunch


Republican Congressman Walter Jones of North Carolina said Tuesday that all U.S. military forces should be pulled out of Afghanistan now that Osama bin Laden is dead. “Why this Congress continues to complain about budgets and cuts and deficits and debts — and our young men and women are walking the roads of Afghanistan getting their legs blown off and getting killed — we still sit here in Congress and don’t bring it up as an issue,” he said on the House floor. Jones added that Afghan President Hamid Karzai was a “corrupt leader,” and that the U.S. ...

JONES RECOGNIZED FOR PERFECT CONSTITUTIONAL VOTING RECORD
WASHINGTON, DC – Once again, Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) has received The New American’s Constitution Award for a perfect score on the publication’s 2017 Freedom Index.   Every year, The New American editorial board rates members of Congress on 10 key votes that reflect important constitutional principles of freedom, such as reining in debt and unnecessary regulations, supporting traditional values, and defending second amendment rights. This year, Congressman Jones joined Congressman Thomas Massie (R-KY) and Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) as the only three members of Congress to earn 100% ratings. “As I work for Eastern North Carolina in the House of Representatives, it is my responsibility to protect the Constitution with every vote I cast,” said Congressman Jones. “It is an honor to be recognized along with Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) and my good friend, Congressman Thomas Massie (R-KY).  They are true patriots, and I look forward to continuing our fight for freedom and
JONES EXPRESSES DISAPPOINTMENT ON AFGHANISTAN
WASHINGTON, DC – Today, Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) released the following statement on Afghanistan: “History shows that Afghanistan is the graveyard of empires.  America has been digging its own grave there for 16 years, and it is disappointing to see this administration and congressional leaders in Washington intend to keep digging,” said Congressman Jones.  “Over 2,200 American lives have been lost.  $800 billion of American taxpayers’ money has been squandered.  How many more Americans must we lose? How many more billions must we waste? There has been no real progress, and we still can’t define how to measure success in Afghanistan.  Enough is enough.” “For far too long, congressional leadership on both sides of the aisle has aided and abetted the massive waste, fraud and abuse in Afghanistan,” continued Jones.  “They’ve worked to keep the money spigot open and to block debate on the issue.  That cannot continue.  It is time for the American pu
JONES SUPPORTS EXPANDED GI BENEFITS FOR VETERANS
WASHINGTON, DC – This week, Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) continued his strong support for veterans and military families of Eastern North Carolina by voting for legislation to greatly expand GI bill benefits.   The GI bill was first created after World War II to help veterans with educational programs, vocational training, and housing assistance following their service.  Enactment of this week’s legislation – H.R. 3218, the Harry W. Colmery Veterans Educational Assistance Act – would be the biggest GI bill expansion in a decade.  H.R. 3218 would allow veterans to use their education benefits throughout their lifetime, not just during the 15 years following their service, as is currently the case.  H.R. 3218 would also give full GI bill eligibility to all post-9/11 Purple Heart recipients, regardless of how long they served.  Currently, post-9/11 Purple Heart recipients need to put in three years of service to receive full benefits.  “It is an honor to be part of
JONES DEFENDS ENC FARMERS
WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) is pushing to reduce the burden of federal regulations on Eastern North Carolina’s agricultural producers.  Over time, farmers have been subjected to an increasing amount of regulatory red tape from the federal government.  The trend has encouraged consolidation and the loss of small farms.  A long-time opponent of red tape, Congressman Jones (NC-3) and twenty-nine of his congressional colleagues are calling for action to address many of the regulatory issues affecting the farming community.  In a letter to the leaders of the House Agriculture and Natural Resources committees sent this week, Jones and his colleagues called for the committees to take steps, including modernizing the Endangered Species Act (ESA), that will help farmers and improve the economy in Eastern North Carolina and rural America.    “The agricultural community is essential to the well-being and food supply of this great nation,” said Congressman Jo
