More on Spending Cuts and Debt
WASHINGTON – Congressman Steve Stockman Thursday once again urged Obama to drop his plans for across-the-board sequestration cuts and instead adopt the “Stockman Smartquester.
“Obama is threatening to move ahead with his sequestration cuts if Republicans don’t give in to his demands for higher taxes,” said Stockman. “Republicans already gave Obama tax hikes without spending cuts. Obama needs to stop bullying people, drop his own sequester and reduce spending with smart cuts.”
WASHINGTON -- Congressman Steve Stockman (R-Texas 36) demanded the White House stop releasing illegal aliens from federal custody as part of an administration effort to build public fear of Obama’s own sequestration plan and give him leverage to demand tax hikes.
“Obama is releasing illegals into the streets before his sequester in hopes of using fear as negotiating tactic for higher taxes. He’s literally placing American lives in danger for partisan gain,” said Stockman.

WASHINGTON – Congressman Steve Stockman (R-Texas 36) today called on President Barack Obama to order a transcript of today’s National Prayer Breakfast keynote address, frame it and hang it in the Oval Office.
The National Prayer Breakfast, an annual D.C. event that gave us President Ronald Reagan’s “Evil Empire” speech, made history again this year with a highly accomplished black doctor directly refuting liberalism and ObamaCare in front of the President.
WASHINGTON -- Congressman Steve Stockman (R-Texas 36th) issued the following statement Monday after President Obama once again failed to fulfill his legal requirement to propose an annual federal budget:
I am not surprised President Obama has failed to meet today’s legal deadline to submit a proposed budget. Failure to propose a budget seems to be an annual Obama tradition.
In consultation with the State Republican Executive Committee, Chairman Munisteri has sent a letter to Speaker Boehner on behalf of the Texas Republican Party urging him to insist on significant spending cuts as part of any future agreements in the House of Representatives.
If Barack Obama thinks Texans will allow an invasion that threatens their freedoms and prosperity, he doesn't know his Texas history.
