We Are Listening America - Speak Out!
Posted by Meghan Snyder on May 25, 2010
Right now, there is a family sitting at their dining room table, looking over receipts and figuring out how they can cut a few extra dollars from their budget. They may be calculating the cost of a summer vacation or cutting coupons to make the most of their next grocery trip.
But that family is doing what Washington refuses to do: tighten their belt and make the tough decisions to live on what they have. Families don't answer their problems with more spending. But Washington does.
We have recently seen countless examples of the disconnect our Congress has with the people they represent. In the same year of record unemployment and economic decline, this Congress has exploded our deficits, loaded us with health care regulation and increased taxes. They've named post offices while continuing to ignore our near-ten percent unemployment rate. They've prioritized misguided legislation such as Cash for Caulkers instead of listening to the American people.
I hear your frustrations every day -- when I stop by your business, bump into you at the gas station or even on my Facebook page. You are tired of more spending and you have more unemployed friends and family members than ever before. Simply put, Congress' to-do list doesn't match up with yours.
It is time to change the priorities of Washington and introduce a new way of doing business -- a business where the American people drive the agenda in Congress.
House Republicans are on the brink of bringing such an agenda from America. We will listen to Americans and get to work for them right away.
Our new project -- America Speaking Out -- is unprecedented and is finally giving Americans the pen and paper. You will have a seat at the table when it comes to building the agenda.
In stark contrast to the Washington arrogance, House Republicans want to hear what you think should be a part of a new policy agenda. Whether it’s on the economy, spending, family values or national security -- your priorities will be reflected.
On the new online forum, AmericaSpeakingOut.com, you can lend your voice to build a new agenda. Using the best of social media, AmericaSpeakingOut.com will allow you to submit a policy solution, promote your priorities, debate the ideas posted by other Americans, and share the conversation with your friends and neighbors via Facebook and Twitter. It is our hope that AmericaSpeakingOut.com will become the home to an unprecedented online conversation between Americans and their elected representatives.
Now is America’s time to rewrite our to-do list -- a groundbreaking way of changing Washington and giving you what you need.

Healthcare Update: How It All Works
Posted by on March 17, 2010
Many of you have called our offices in search of an answer to the big question- how is Speaker Pelosi forcing the Senate Healthcare Bill through the House?
The House Rules Committee has put together this document which lays out the process. You can read it here.
Thank you for continuing to call, e-mail and write to let us know how you feel about the government takeover of healthcare.
Holiday Mail for Heroes
Posted by Meghan Snyder on November 23, 2009
Congressman Jim Jordan encourages support for “Holiday Mail for Heroes,” sponsored by the American Red Cross to send holiday greeting cards to members of the U.S. military. The American Red Cross and Pitney Bowes, Inc. will ensure that all cards sent to U.S. service members during the third annual mail drive will arrive safe and in time for the holidays.
Holiday Mail for Heroes
P.O. Box 5456
Capitol Heights, MD 20791-5456
A few rules and restrictions apply. Only cards, not letters, will be accepted. All cards must be signed. Since cards could go to a service member on active duty, their family, or a former service member, all cards must be entitled “Dear Service Member, Family or Veteran.” There is a limit of 15 cards per person or 50 for a school class or business group. Groups of cards should be bundled in single, large envelopes—it is not necessary to include individual envelopes or postage for cards.
Pelosi Allows Only 2 Amendments to Healthcare Bill
Posted by on November 07, 2009
Last night, as the House Committee on Rules considered H.R. 3962, the Pelosi Government-Run Healthcare Bill, only 2 of 216 submitted amendments were accepted. This denies members 72 hours to review last minute changes and only allows four hours of debate today - which are underway on the floor now. You can see here what Democrats have done to hurry this bill into passage. I'll be joining the debate shortly and voting against this trillion dollar takeover of healthcare.
See the Healthcare Bill for Yourself

Before Congress ended the week, House Democrats unveiled their newest healthcare proposal - twice the size of their first version but with more bureaucracy and ways to get between a patient and their doctor. You can read the bill here to see what House Democrats think is best for you...
