    Today, Rep. Trey Gowdy (SC-4) released the following statement in response to President Obama’s press conference. “In 2013, President Obama implores Congress to raise the debt ceiling with no conversation about spending cuts, working toward a balanced budget or fiscal reforms. For those who missed the outrage he continued, “it would be a self-inflicted wound on the economy,” he said. “To even entertain the idea of this happening … is irresponsible. It's absurd.” “When President Obama was Senato... Read more

    Today, Representative Trey Gowdy (SC-4) released the following statement after the United State Supreme Court ruled 5-4 to uphold the Patient Protection Affordable Care Act (PPACA). The Supreme Court did redefine PPACA as a tax. “The question every American should now be asking themselves is what's next?

    Today, Representative Trey Gowdy (SC-04) released the following statement in response to last night’s State of the Union Address by President Obama. “Regrettably the President took what was supposed to be a "State of the Union" and turned it into a state of his re-election bid. It is disappointing to see someone willing to divide this country solely for the sake of his political fortunes. This is the 3rd State of the Union address the President has given and there is still no plan to save socia... Read more

    Today, Representative Trey Gowdy (SC-04) released the following statement in response to the President’s decision to raise the debt limit. “Less than 6 months removed from last summer’s so called debt crisis – we are on the verge yet again of committing an act of generational embezzlement. We are on the verge of assigning another trillion dollars of debt to our children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren because we cannot muster the courage to make hard decisions. We cannot bring ourselves... Read more

    With the legislative session lurching to a close, House Republican freshmen took center stage in the Capitol on Monday to play their part in an elaborate year-end kabuki dance over a bill to extend the payroll tax holiday. The freshman argued at a news conference and in interviews that a two-month extension approved over the weekend by the Senate, 89-10, was irresponsible because it did not provide economic certainty for middle-class Americans.

    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

    As we get closer to the Administration’s projected August 2, 2011, deadline for raising the debt limit, my constituents are concerned we will not keep promises made to seniors, veterans, and military personnel. For this reason, I am introducing the Ensuring America’s Promises Act of 2011, H.R. 2534, which statutorily directs the following obligations continue should the debt limit be reached, now or in the future: · Interest on the debt · Military active duty pay · Social Security benefits · Med...
