Last quote by Mac Thornberry

I believe that raising the debt limit for only three months is a mistake because it does not provide the certainty that financial markets and our economy need. But most concerning to me, and the reason I am voting against this bill, is that it forces our military to operate under a stopgap continuing resolution – once again.feedback

Over the course of the Obama Administration, our military funding was cut 20 percent while the world grew more dangerous. While we cannot repair all of the damage done by those cuts in a single year, we can and should do more than this level of funding will allow.

I am dismayed at the attacks Khizr and Ghazala Khan have endured after they spoke about their son's service and sacrifice. There is never enough honor we can show to the families of those whose loved ones have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Service to our country is above politics.feedback
