The message in this last election was clear: the American people want the president and Congress to work together to secure our borders. Unfortunately, this appears to have fallen on deaf ears with President Obama. He could have asked Congress to take up this issue during the “lame duck” session, or he could have waited until January when the new Congress was sworn in.
Last month, President Barack Obama declared, “I’m not on the ballot this year… but make no mistake, [my] policies are on the ballot. Every single one of them.”
On Election Day, the American people agreed, voting to elect the largest Republican House majority since the late 1920s and a Republican majority in the Senate.

November 11 stands as one of this country’s most important days of recognition as we pay tribute to those who defend our freedom. Veterans Day gives us the opportunity to honor the heroes among us. I’d like to thank every veteran who has served, and all those currently serving, for their incredible sacrifice to our great nation.
Our government must honor its commitment to make sure service members are never left behind. That includes making sure they get treatment for mental disorders caused by the trauma of war.
September 11 taught us that we can no longer ignore the threats of foreign terrorists who declare war on America. With hundreds of millions of dollars on hand from ransoms paid and outright theft, the Islamic State (ISIS) has emerged as the most well financed terrorist group in history.
Last week, a hacking scandal had the internet and every cable news station in a frenzy.
Recent polling has made one thing clear: Americans are unhappy with Congress. I work there myself, and I have to tell you, I agree.

Our nation has a moral responsibility to care for veterans who bear the scars of war in defending our freedoms.
