Today, Nancy Pelosi is working hard to bring back another wasteful and corrupt government program that uses our tax dollars to line the pockets of some of the world’s largest corporations. Call now and tell these Congressmen NOT to reauthorize the Export-Import Bank (Ex-Im). A vote on reauthorization is expected today, so act fast! That’s right!

The Ex-Im Bank sends billions of our tax dollars to countries that violate human rights and undermine democracy – using our hard earned ...

Paul Ryan gave a speech to his colleagues in the Republican Conference meeting that he would accept the job of Speaker of the House as long as he could be a unifying force AND as long as the 3 major factions in the House got behind him.

The House Freedom Caucus, working together with grassroots conservatives and conservative organi...

Hillary Clinton Under Fire For Comments About Congressional Subpoena

Hillary Clinton is facing scrutiny after finally giving an interview to CNN. In the interview, she claimed she was never subpoenaed by Congress – a statement contrary to records produced Wednesday by the House Select Committee on Benghazi. “You know, you’re starting with so many assumptions,” Clinton said after Brianna Keilar of CNN asked the presidential hopeful how Clinton decided to “delete 33,000 emails” while secretary of state. “I’ve never had a subpoena. Again, let’s take a deep breath here. Everything I did was permitted by law and regulation,” Clinton said. Chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi Rep. Trey ...
