  • THE TRUTH ABOUT ENDING FUNDING FOR PLANNED PARENTHOOD
    Posted in Column on September 25, 2015 | Preview rr

    I was in a meeting when I first heard about the videos showing health care workers callously discussing the selling of baby body parts and it was almost unbelievable. When I got back to my office and watched one, my heart sunk. As more and more videos come out, the more sickened I am. I have been pro-life my entire life, and as the father of four daughters, I firmly believe all life is precious. We have an obligation to protect the most vulnerable, and hearing health care providers talk about ha... Read more

    Everyone agrees small and medium-sized businesses are the backbone of our economy, powering job creation. That’s why I am shocked at the fear-mongering and outright falsities being spread about trade agreements and trade promotion authority. I’ve heard directly from employers like Commercial Vehicle Group in New Albany and Screen Machine in Licking County that the ability to sell their goods and services to a growing customer base is the way they can best grow their businesses. These employers k... Read more

    On March 3rd, I voted to fund the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) through September of this year, and help keep our nation safe. I remain firmly opposed to the president’s overreach on immigration. It is important to note that this bill does not provide any funding for the president’s executive order. Moreover, shutting down DHS would not stop Obama’s executive action. Let me explain. The president was going to use application fees instead of appropriations to implement this program, and w...

    Most days we often take for granted the multitude of freedoms we experience every day. On Veterans Day, however, it is important that we pause and take time to recognize our nation’s veterans and service members for the sacrifices they have made, and will continue to make on our behalf. During my time as a U.S. Representative our service members have answered the call to fight in Iraq and Afghanistan, to participate in humanitarian aid and disaster relief missions. They have trained side-by-side... Read more

Most importantly however, today is a solemn day to honor those who have fallen in service to our great nation.

    With Congress out of session, members of Congress aren’t attending hearings and taking votes in Washington, D.C.; however, I’ve been busy travelling the 12th Congressional District. I spent the month talking with constituents, listening to their concerns, and gaining their input. In all, my staff and I have traveled more than 2,000 miles across the seven counties that make up the 12th District. I’ve been fortunate to tour area businesses and facilities like Tencate in Hebron and Flying Horse Far... Read more

    Memorial Day is upon us, and with it come some of my favorite American traditions. Our favorite baseball teams are taking the diamonds. We open our homes to friends and family for backyard barbecues, graduation parties, and simple celebrations of summer holidays. Our neighborhoods will enjoy the sounds of marching bands and fire engines passing by in patriotic parades. These are good days. It is important during these moments though, to take time to remember why we have the freedom to gather and... Read more

    12:00AM on January 1, 2013 the Federal government began to go over the fiscal cliff when the largest At tax hike in United States’ history went into effect. The tax hike resulted from the reinstatement of higher Clinton-era tax rates on families and small businesses that had been originally been cut in 2001 for ten years. In December 2010, they were extended for two years. The tax hike consisted of one part of the fiscal cliff. The other part consisted of nearly $1.2 trillion in spending cuts ov... Read more

    The president gave a passionate speech at his party's convention this month, and he touted several ideas on how we can improve our economy. We agree it is crucial that small business and entrepreneurs lead the way to strengthen manufacturing and increase exports in the United States. The good news is that we already have a dynamic industry that addresses all of the ideas the president touched on, and it has grown over the years in Ohio, creating jobs along the way. The bad news is that one of Pr... Read more

    Each Memorial Day, we have the opportunity to pause and remember our nation’s men and women in uniform who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for the freedoms we all enjoy. While we gather with our families and friends to enjoy parades and backyard barbecues, it is important that we share with our children the reason why we celebrate this special day. The selfless sacrifices of so many have secured our liberty. Three years ago, I met with some concerned members of our community who were starting w... Read more
