http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r3tE8qjXUjQ Our number one concern is employment. Although there have been some gains in the past three years, Congress is doing everything in its power to block serious progress.

We lack an effective, long-term energy policy. Energy is not only an important domestic concern, it is also central to America's foreign policy.

Kevin McCarthy wants to undo that and send everyone back to court. What a terrible idea. That's why I opposed HR 1837. Here is an editorial I wrote that ...
