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 CONTINUES FIGHT AGAINST COMMUNIST CHINESE TAKEOVER OF AMERICAN MARKETS
WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) is once again raising concerns over Chinese acquisitions of American markets and companies.  Earlier this year, Congressman Jones and over 50 of his congressional colleagues sounded the alarm about the proposed takeover of the Chicago Stock Exchange (CHX) by a Chinese firm – Chongqing Casin Enterprise Group (CCEG).  The decision about whether to approve or deny that transaction now lies before the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).  In a letter to SEC Chairman Jay Clayton sent yesterday, Jones and 10 of his colleagues urged the SEC to deny the proposed takeover.  Jones and his colleagues believe Chinese ownership of the Chicago exchange poses financial, economic, and cyber-security risks to America. “A communist Chinese takeover of a trillion dollar American market could have highly dangerous and detrimental effects on the US economy,” said Congressman Jones.  “In my view, the SEC should immediately reject t
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
