Rand Paul visits Rock Hill, calls for ‘bigger, better, bolder’ Republican Party

Rand Paul 2

Herald Online

— Rand Paul was a man of the people Monday in Rock Hill.

The Republican U.S. senator from Kentucky grabbed a plate of barbecue and sat down with Ron and Marge Wilson of Rock Hill and Nancy Anderson of Chester for some dinner chit-chat.

He renewed an acquaintance with Dr. James Wood, chief medical officer at Piedmont Medical Center. Wood and Paul, an ophthalmologist, had performed surgeries together in Atlanta.

“He has great hands,” Wood said.

Paul came to Rock Hill to endorse the re-election bid of U.S. Rep. Mick Mulvaney, R-Indian Land, to promote expanding the Republican Party and possibly to lay the groundwork for a presidential run in 2016. He said he has not decided whether to run, but coming to early primary states such as South Carolina is important “to getting my points across.”

Citizens Against Government Waste

Today, the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste Political Action Committee (CCAGW PAC) announced its endorsements of four members of the South Carolina delegation for re-election to the House of Representatives; Reps. Jeff Duncan (R), Trey Gowdy (R), Mick Mulvaney (R), and Mark Sanford (R).

CCAGW PAC based its endorsements on each candidate’s score in CCAGW’s 2013 Congressional Ratings.  Each of these candidates is a “Taxpayer Hero” with a lifetime rating of 90 percent or greater.

With a score of 96 percent, Rep. Mulvaney has the highest lifetime rating of the four candidates.  In CCAGW’s 2012 Congressional Ratings, Rep. Mulvaney was one of five members of Congress to achieve a 100 percent rating, earning him the coveted title of “Taxpayer Super Hero.”  Rep. Gowdy, has a lifetime rating of 95 percent, and Reps. Duncan and Sanford have a lifetime rating of 94 percent.  During his three terms as the representative of South Carolina’s First Congressional District from 1995-2001, Rep. Sanford was named a “Taxpayer Super Hero” three times, and had the second-highest lifetime rating of any member of Congress at the time he left the House in 2001.

President Obama has failed to secure our border and continues to ignore his duties to do so. The current border crisis was avoidable, and we must send a clear message to Obama that we want our border secured.

Obama must be held accountable

Mulvaney 6_24 image
The President has shown time and again that he has little regard for the law. Just recently, President Obama released 5 Guantanamo Bay detainees without notifying congress as required by law. The release of these dangerous prisoners also puts American lives at risk.
In the fallout of a disastrous Obamacare launch, Obama took executive action to unilaterally change the law and move deadlines for people getting coverage. This happened multiple times.
The violations of trust are endless. It’s time for action. Stand with me and demand Obama be held accountable to the law. Sign my petition today.

Hold the IRS Accountable

Lerner Header 6_19

The IRS now claims that they cannot provide emails from Lois Lerner and other IRS employees potentially involved in the scandal because their computers crashed. While this sounds rather convenient for those involved, I have a hard time believing that the emails have simply vanished.

Whether this is an honest mistake or a classic cover-up, we must get to the bottom of the IRS targeting of conservative groups and the Administration’s subsequent lackluster response. If you agree, please sign my petition and let’s make our voices heard.

The Pentagon and Congress Must Stop Raiding the Afghan War Fund

defense-large

Defense One

Last week’s House action on the National Defense Authorization Act was largely an exercise in fantasy budgeting and pork barrel politics. Virtually all of the Pentagon’s major cost saving initiatives were rejected, and key issues like when to bring U.S. troops home from Afghanistan were not even brought up for debate.

This otherwise dismal showing was partially redeemed by the House’s passage of an amendment that would take the first step towards ending the use of the war budget – formally known as the Overseas Contingency Operations (OCO) account – to pay for items that have nothing to do with the war in Afghanistan. The amendment, co-sponsored by Reps. Mick Mulvaney, R-S.C., and Patrick Murphy, D-Fla., proposes using standards developed by the Office of Management and Budget to clarify which items can properly be included in the OCO budget.
