We stand with Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Woods

On Tuesday, March 25, the United States Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in two landmark cases that have everything to do with the kind of country we will leave our children and grandchildren. In both Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood Specialties Corp v. Seblieus, the Supreme Court will look at whether businesses are entitled to the fundamental right of religious liberty.   Four years ago, President Obama signed into law the Affordable Care Act. It’s doubtful any other piece of legislation has done as much harm to our Constitution as much as Obamacare has.  Under one controversial provision, businesses are required to ...

On November 16, the Joint Economic Committee of Congress invited testimony on how tax reform could boost economic growth in America, Rep. Rob Woodall, R-GA-7, gave a floor speech promoting the FairTax Act (HR 25, S 13), which would replace all federal income- and payroll-based taxes with a national sales tax, often considered progressive in effect. Woodall argued that moving to a consumption-based tax system instead of an ...

Woodall, House Freshmen Urge Senate: “Get To Work”

Early this month, the House Republican freshman class formed a coalition and dubbed themselves "Operation Turnaround." Rep. Rob Woodall (R-GA) announced this move in a recent press release and on his website. The group officially kicked off on October 4 by holding a press conference and by sending a formal letter to the Senate urging them to take swift action on 12 House sponsored proposals. Woodall and 36 others signed and delivered a letter entitled "A Pro Jobs Message from House GOP Freshmen." It contains brief but unsubtle allegations that "Senate leadership" has neglected to maintain the overall fiscal well-being of the nation. It also blames ...

Woodall’s 7th District Weighs In On Balanced Budget Amendment

This fall, the recently passed Budget Control Act brings a balanced budget amendment to a vote in Congress for the first time in fifteen years. Congressman Rob Woodall held a Telephone Town Hall meeting on September 14th to gauge the amount of support a balanced budget amendment has within Georgia's 7th district using a telephone-based polling method. The meeting's participation was estimated at just over 400. According to the 2010 census, Georgia's 7th congressional district represents roughly 900,000. It has been solidly Republican since 1995. Providing some background on the most recent history of this issue, Woodall rhetorically asked his ...

You Won’t Believe What Happened in GOP Conference Last Night

As you've probably heard from media reports by now, last night Rep. 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. Oh, and there's one other thing. He wants the Republican Conference to change the rules of the House to remove the power of Members to issue a motion to vacate the chair - which you'll recall is the mechanism that Mark Meadows of North Carolina used to ultimately force John Boehner to step down. So Paul Ryan wants to be Speaker as long as he can ...
