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 WORKS TO END SECRET TAXPAYER-FUNDED HARASSMENT SETTLEMENTS
WASHINGTON, DC  –  Today, Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) joined Congressman Ron DeSantis (FL-6), along with Reps. Marsha Blackburn (TN-7), Tulsi Gabbard (HI-2), Jim Cooper (TN-5), and Kathleen Rice (NY-4), in introducing H.R. 4494, the Congressional Accountability and Hush Fund Elimination Act. The bill would prohibit the use of taxpayers’ money to pay sexual harassment or assault settlements involving members of Congress. Specifically, the Congressional Accountability and Hush Fund Elimination Act would:      • Prohibit the use of public funds to pay settlements or awards for sexual harassment or assault claims involving members of Congress      • Disclose all payments previously made by the Office of Compliance on its website (the name of the victim is expressly prohibited from being disclosed)      • Require perpetrators to reimburse the taxpayers with interest      • Prohibit nondisclosure agreements as a precondition to initiate procedures to addr
JONES STATEMENT ON 2018 NDAA CONFERENCE REPORT
WASHINGTON, DC - This week the House passed the conference report on the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2018.  Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) – a senior member of the House Armed Services Committee – reluctantly voted no and released the following statement: “Our military has been asked to do more with less and it’s hurting readiness.  They need more resources, period.  This bill helps meet many of those needs, and that’s a good thing.  What is not good is that the $74 billion in additional money provided in the bill will be financed not by cutting spending elsewhere in the budget, but with more debt, much of it borrowed from potential foreign adversaries like China, and then put on the backs of American taxpayers.  With federal debt already at $20 trillion, and rapidly growing annual federal deficit spending adding $666 billion to that debt just this past year alone, that’s the wrong way to go.”  “Former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of
JONES: “I’M ALL FOR TAX REFORM, BUT WE CAN’T DO IT BY ADDING TRILLIONS TO THE DEBT”
WASHINGTON, DC  –  This afternoon, the U.S. House of Representatives debated H.R. 1 – legislation that would make sweeping changes to America’s tax laws.  Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) – a leading fiscal conservative – reluctantly voted against the bill, primarily due to the trillions of dollars that it is projected to add to the national debt.  He is also concerned about the potential impact on the Eastern North Carolina economy, veterans, and middle class families. His statement follows: “I’m all for tax reform, but it must grow the economy, not the debt.  Unfortunately, the tax bill voted on today would be financed not by cutting spending elsewhere in the budget, but by adding up to $2 trillion to America’s debt.  Much of that would be borrowed from potential foreign adversaries like China, and then put on the backs of American taxpayers.  That’s at least an additional $12,000 burden for every household in America.  With federal debt already at $20
JONES INTRODUCES AMENDMENTS TO PROTECT PEOPLE OF FAITH, CRACK DOWN ON SANCTUARY CITIES
WASHINGTON, DC –  Today, Congressman Walter B. Jones (NC-3) introduced two amendments for consideration of H.R. 1, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act aimed at making significant improvements to the bill. The first amendment fully repeals the Johnson Amendment of 1954 and returns the freedom of speech to our nation’s houses of worship and non-profits. Additionally, Congressman Jones introduced an amendment to rein in taxpayer subsidies for sanctuary cities. “Time and time again, the American people have asked their representatives in Congress for bold action,” said Congressman Jones.  “My two amendments would help to fulfil two of those promises: to protect people of faith and to target sanctuary jurisdictions who refuse to follow federal immigration law.”  The House Rules Committee will meet later this evening to consider which amendments will be allowed a vote on the House floor later this week.
