Government

Put simply: We are for limited government that works. At TexasGOPVote, we will work as a watchdog to help our state lawmakers and our congressional delegation pull in the reins on unnecessary spending and government bureaucracy. You better believe we’ll expose politicians who seek to act outside the bounds set by the Forefathers in the Constitutions of Texas and the United States.

Today, one doesn’t have to look far to see things which should be of concern to America, assuming they are looking and ‘care’.  People have too often given up, they no longer watch the news, read a newspaper, listen...
President Donald Trump took office with a promise to drain the swamp, but the federal agency that manages the government’s two million civilian employees is making it harder to do that. Under a new policy, the Office of...
This past week I was delighted to meet with North Texans across the 32nd Congressional District to discuss important issues facing our community and nation. From volunteering at the North Texas Food Bank, to meeting with...

A volunteer rescuer died on his way to help flood victims from Hurricane Harvey. His family said he was a recipient of President Barrack Obama’s Deferred Actions for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) amnesty program.
The Trump administration on Tuesday formally announced the end of DACA -- a program that had protected nearly 800,000 young undocumented immigrants brought to the US as children from deportation.
As of today, Sept. 1, Texas police officers can pull people over and give them tickets for texting and driving. Those busted will face fines of up to $99 for a first offense and $200 for a second offense.
Sometimes it is so frustrating scrolling through all of the social media out there full of the latest unbelievable act of this politician or that branch of government.
I praised the Trump Administration’s response to Hurricane Harvey and pledged to help with federal recovery efforts earlier this week at a press conference in Austin:I think all of us have expressed our gratitude to the...
