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 RECEIVES FREEDOM FIGHTER AWARD FROM TOP CONSERVATIVE ORGANIZATION
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) has been honored with the Freedom Fighter Award from leading grassroots conservative organization FreedomWorks.  The Freedom Fighter Award was presented to members of Congress who consistently voted to defend economic freedom in 2015.  Congressman Jones was one of the highest-ranked members of the House of Representatives on FreedomWorks’ annual scorecard with a near-perfect rating on 21 key votes.  Scored votes included those to cut wasteful government spending, to fully repeal Obamacare, to disapprove of harmful EPA rules, and to prevent the Department of Education to coerce states into implementing Common Core, among other things. “It is an honor to receive this year’s Freedom Fighter Award," said Congressman Jones.  "As a member of Congress, it is my greatest privilege and responsibility to advance the principles of freedom on which America was founded.”  Adam Brandon, President and CEO of Freedom Works, presents
JONES FILES FEC COMPLAINT AGAINST UNLIMITED SPECIAL INTEREST SPENDING IN ELECTIONS
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Walter Jones (NC-3) along with Congressman Ted Lieu (CA-33) and Senator Jeff Merkley (OR) filed a complaint before the Federal Election Commission (FEC) seeking to end super PAC spending in US elections. The complaint seeks to reverse a federal appeals court ruling which created super PACs and has resulted in an explosion of spending in elections across the country.  The March 2010 ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit in SpeechNow.org v. FEC, opened the door to super PACs by holding that the federal law limiting contributions to political committees to $5,000 per person each year did not apply to a political committee that promised to make only “independent expenditures.”  The FEC complaint filed today alleges that super PACs have now become vehicles for wealthy donors to evade campaign contribution limits designed to prevent corruption and the appearance of corruption.  The US Supreme Court has yet to review this ques
JONES DELIVERS ON PROMISE TO 9/11 FAMILIES
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3), Congressman Stephen F. Lynch (MA-8), and Congressman Thomas Massie (KY-4) commented on the release of the 28 classified pages of the Joint Inquiry into Intelligence Activities Before and After the Terrorist Attacks of September 2001. The pages were initially classified by President George W. Bush and remained classified under President Barack Obama until their release today. “This has been a long journey on behalf of the 9/11 families who have felt the horrific pain of that day for years. This process started over two years ago when Congressman Lynch and I introduced H. Res. 428 and wrote a letter to President Obama urging him to release the 28 pages.  We promised the families that we would not stop until the pages were declassified and are happy that President Obama kept his promise to the 9/11 families. I want to thank Congressman Stephen Lynch and Congressman Thomas Massie for joining me in this effort to give peace
JONES VOTES FOR CONSCIENCE PROTECTION ACT
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) continued his long-standing fight for the pro-life cause by voting for S. 304, the Conscience Protection Act. The bill would enable health care providers to sue in federal court if they are discriminated against for not participating in an abortion procedure as a matter of conscience. According to current law, health care providers who are discriminated against for not participating in an abortion procedure as a matter of conscience can only file a complaint with the Department of Health and Human Services. Often, those complaints go unheeded. The Conscience Protection Act passed 245 to 182 and will now go the Senate for consideration. “The taking of an innocent life is always wrong, and health care providers who don’t want to participate in that as a matter of conscience should never be discriminated against in the workplace,” said Congressman Jones. “This bill gives them a legal avenue to combat discrimination for
