    Congressman Trey Gowdy voted against the deal to raise the debt deal and fund the government through January 15, 2014, saying, "This agreement falls short of what we could have done and what we should have done; hence I could not support it. Nevertheless, issues related to fiscal responsibility and the systemic shortcomings of Obamacare will emerge again soon, and I trust we can be more persuasive in making our argument to the American people." Gowdy discussed the end of the government shutdown ... Read more

    I have received concerns from many of you about H.R. 3523, the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act (CISPA) that passed the House of Representatives last week. Our nation is under literally daily attack from cyber criminals. I have attended classified debriefings and the threat is real, widespread, and dangerous. Everyday, cyber terrorists throughout the world exploit the Internet to infiltrate business networks in order to obtain personal records, passwords, bank information, and inte... Read more

    At a time when public confidence in the institutions of government is at an all-time low, it is imperative we act to restore public trust. One institution that should be above politics is the United States Department of Justice. The Department of Justice should be fair and impartial because our republic needs to have confidence in the civil and criminal justice systems. From the time of Greek antiquity, and even including modern images, Lady Justice is blindfolded. She is blindfolded because she... Read more

  • Payroll Tax Extension

    Failing to extend the payroll tax holiday is wholly unacceptable, which is why we voted to extend the holiday for a full year. Businesses cannot adequately plan for the 2012 business year in 60-day increments. It would be an administrative nightmare. Nor is 2-month tax policy conducive with long-term economic recovery. The House passed plan provides a full year's worth of certainty and over $1000 in savings for the American worker. House conferees are in Washington today and will remain there w... Read more

    When so many of our fellow citizens are looking for work and America is competing against other countries to land businesses, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) continues to pursue an activist, politically motivated agenda thwarting economic recovery and continuing to place our companies at a competitive disadvantage worldwide. Virtually everyone is familiar with the most glaring example of overreach and union pandering, which is the complaint against Boeing. Despite not a single example... Read more

    Representing you in Congress is a true honor. These are challenging times our country faces, but the American spirit is strong and has persevered through tough times in the past. Congress needs to be about the business of providing regulatory, tax, litigation, and trade structures conducive to economic growth. As I have traveled the Upstate talking with employers and employees alike, the message from them to Washington is crystal clear—“We want certainty, predictability, and the freedom to grow ...
