Border Security Now!

Let me be clear, this crisis is a tragedy that lies squarely with the President. Congress will not give him a blank check to fix it.

The Hill:

Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) demanded that leaders from the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) testify before the Senate Finance Committee on why early cost estimates of ObamaCare were so far off. 

“Now the American people have to pick up the tab on the CBO errors,” Roberts said on the Senate floor Tuesday. “I’m calling for CBO to come before the [Finance] Committee. … Let the hearings begin.” 

Roberts’ comments came as CBO released a report Tuesday that the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare, would cost the country 2.5 million jobs over the next 10 years.

"Every American has a right to the free exercise of religion guaranteed by the First Amendment to our Constitution.

Report after report is now confirming what most Americans knew all along: first, that it was indeed a terrorist attack in Benghazi on September 11, 2012, and second, this terrorist attack and murder of four Americans could have been prevented.

I am among the many Americans who remain outraged at the cover-up and the continued stonewalling by this Administration to reveal the truth of those events.

I hold these views not only as a Republican Senator, but as a U.S. Marine. Read more here.
