September 19, 2012 Statements For the Record

Mr. Speaker, I rise today in strong support of H.Res. 786. I join President Obama, Secretary of State Clinton and my colleagues in Congress in condemning these attacks in the strongest possible terms. The attacks on our embassies in Cairo, Egypt and Sana, Yemen and the violent assault on our consulate in Benghazi, Libya were shocking and unacceptable.

Dear Rep. McCollum,

The Taxpayers Protection Alliance (TPA) strongly supports your amendment, co-sponsored by Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.), to end taxpayer handouts to sports sponsorships.  It is a step in the right direction as Congress looks for ways to cut spending and still defend the country.
