It was quickly debunked. The Washington Post called the claim “misleading and nonsensical.” My constituents here in Texas know: Y... Read more

    The Affordable Care Act was hastily written by Democrats behind closed doors and stuffed with special interest giveaways that drove up health care costs for millions of working Americans. It’s been a disaster since its partisan and unpopular inception, and this recent ruling on its unconstitutionality is not surprising. Should the courts uphold this decision both parties should start over, working together to make health care truly affordable, making sure patients can see local doctors and be tr... Read more

    CONROE, TX - George H.W. Bush was a courageous war hero, Texas Congressman, an Ambassador, Director of the CIA, Vice President, and President of the United States. But I believe he would say his favorite title was husband to his beloved Bar, and greatest accomplishment was in raising children who serve their nation with equal dedication and patriotism. Our country and our state have lost a man of honor who leaves a legacy of love and service for his nation and his family. Cathy and I extend our ... Read more
