Like you, I am outraged and disgusted by the unspeakable acts of Planned Parenthood. Last week, the Center for Medical Progress released another disturbing video showing Planned Parenthood staff describing how they manipulate abortions to secure more valuable organ specimens, haggle over prices, and participate in trafficking of unborn baby body parts.
As you know, President Obama recently reached a deal with Iran – the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism. If not for the actions of House conservatives, the President could have sealed the deal with Iran months ago. However, my colleagues and I forced the President to submit the deal to Congress for approval before it can take effect. The Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act of 2015, which passed the House with my support in a bipartisan vote of 400-25, is the latest example of House conservatives reining in the Obama Administration. As required by this Act, President Obama submitted his deal with Iran to Congress on July 19, 2015. The House will vote on this resolution in September.
Like many of you, I was appalled and outraged by the recent murder of an innocent young woman on a San Francisco pier by a five-time deported illegal alien. This senseless tragedy has stuck with me - not only because an innocent young woman lay dying in her father’s arms, but also because it could have been avoided. The man accused of her murder was in this country illegally and had a long criminal history.
