Tom Fights The Death Tax

Tom Graves, the tax-cutting constitutional conservative, fights against the government’s final invasion – a tax on dying:

The Dallas-Hiram Patch has the full story:

Tom Graves: “Liberals in Washington want to tax every event in life, including death. They view the death of certain people as a pay day for their big government programs. But make no mistake: the death tax is unfair, insensitive to grieving families and punishes hard work…”

Tom Freezes Pay For Members of Congress

NorthwestGeorgiaNews.com has the story:

Graves, who chairs the legislative branch subcommittee of the Appropriations Committee, said the relatively small bill continues a freeze on congressional pay that has been in place since 2010.

“This bill honors and respects taxpayers. It makes tough decisions and stretches every dollar just like families across America do every day,” Graves said in a statement. …

Graves said funding for the House of Representatives has been reduced by 14 percent since Republicans gained control in January 2011.

Ammo Ban Defeated. ATF Director Resigns.

“What’s the lesson? Don’t even try to infringe on our Second Amendment rights.”
– Tom Graves

From The Hill:

The director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) is stepping down following controversy surrounding the agency’s proposal to ban certain types of ammunition.

Jones’ resignation comes amid a firestorm over the ATF’s proposed bullet ban, which was shelved last week after the agency received tens of thousands of public comments opposing the move.

Tom Graves & House GOP Pass Obamacare Repeal

On February 3, 2015, Tom Graves voted to repeal Obamacare. The U.S. House, led by the Republican Majority, passed the bill by a vote of 239-186.

Here’s what Tom said after voting for the repeal bill:

“We need real health care reform that puts patients first and expands choice, not Obamacare’s top-down mandates that have resulted in higher premiums, limited choice and the cancellation of millions of health care plans. By repealing Obamacare in its entirety, we can start fresh on health care reform without the constraints of the unworkable and unfixable disaster that is Obamacare. House Republicans are developing patient-centered solutions, which preserve personal freedom, expand choice, and allow people to keep the doctor and health insurance plan they like and trust.”

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas – Election Edition

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the state,
Families tuned in the news, and yes, another debate;
 
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, 
As sounds of political ads were filling the air.
  
The polls were posted with no margin to spare;
With visions of Hillary and Harry, not Whoville …oh, don’t they care.
 
The children were frustrated, all dressed in their flannel;
No Frosty, no Rudolph, but campaign spots on each channel.
 
When out on the lawn, they heard such a clatter,
They ran to the window to see what’s the matter.
 
When what to their wondering eyes did appear,
but eight energetic, door-to-door volunteers,
Were they there to sing carols in warm winter coats?
No, but instead to remind them to all go and vote.
 

“Vote for our person, not their person!” they chanted with might;
Ending what would have been such a blissful, snowy night.
 
With a fury in our step we ran quick to the door,
And told them, “It’s Christmas – please, please… no more!
The mailers and ads are too much to take, 
With all due respect, can’t you give us a break?”
 
So, voters listen and lend us your ear;
Christmas is at risk and must be saved this year.
 
You must hurry and scurry, make no delay;
To save this Christmas, go vote this Tuesday!


Election Day is Tuesday.  David Perdue and Gov. Nathan Deal are leading in the polls, but are just a point or two away from the 50 percent mark needed to avoid a runoff Election.  If there was every a time when you ask yourself, “Does my vote really make a difference?”  This is the year.  Please go and vote on Tuesday, November 4th.  A runoff for the Governor’s race will be in early December and the runoff for the U.S. Senate race will be in early January.

Please go vote on Tuesday November 4th.  If not, I imagine you will be reading this version of “Twas the Night Before Christmas” to your family.

It’s that time

The air is cool, the leaves are changing, and the Georgia Bulldogs are about to whip up on the Florida Gators.  That can only mean one thing – IT’S TIME TO GET OUT THE VOTE!

I am excited that the election is almost here and will be hitting the campaign trail all across North Georgia this coming Monday and Tuesday with my good friend, Republican Nominee for the U.S. Senate, David Perdue.

We can count on David Perdue to help bring jobs and bigger paychecks to North Georgia.  And a vote for David Perdue is a vote to stop the Obama agenda that is hurting our families and wallets.

David’s opponent supports the Obama agenda.  President Obama said yesterday “If Michelle Nunn wins, that means that Democrats keep control of the Senate and that means we can keep doing some good work.”

We can’t let that happen.

Please join David and I when we are in your area next Monday and Tuesday.

Citizen Co-Sponsor Bill to Cut IRS Funding by over $340 million

TG 003TW IRS Budget CutThe recent developments of the IRS scandal make it clear – the IRS is an agency that is out of control and must be reigned in.

That’s why the House Appropriations Committee today passed a bill that cut funding for the IRS by over $340 million, putting the scandal-ridden agency’s funding at pre-2008 levels.  It also placed restrictions on employee bonuses, forbids funding from being used to target groups based on their political beliefs, prohibits funding to implement Obamacare’s individual mandate and stops the transfers of taxpayer dollars from the Department of Health and Human Services for Obamacare uses.  The bill will now go before the entire U.S House of Representatives for a vote.

SIGN below to Citizen Co-Sponsor the bill to cut IRS funding by over $340 million.
