More on Accountability
October 21, 2019 Press Release
Americans deserve better than made up claims of collusion evidence, falsified transcripts, secret meetings with a politically-motivated whistleblower, and impeachment plots in the basement of the Capitol. House Democrats can block Adam Schiff from being censured tonight, but they can’t undue the damage he has done to our nation.
Last Congress, we led a common-sense bipartisan proposal to implement anti-sexual harassment training and provide protections to Capitol staff. More than 100 days into the new majority, House Administration Democrats have failed in performing their obligation to implement new training curriculum for members and staff. The committee should act immediately to set the new training in place to help ensure a safe and healthy work environment for all.

"House Democrats are attempting to force North Carolina taxpayers to pay for campaign ads for California politicians. Instead of counting ballots from the Capitol, the new House majority should be counting the number of people who will be hurt by their policies that will cost $600,000 per household and make private health insurance illegal."
People across this country are through with Washington getting to live by a different set of rules. Using taxpayer funds to cover up your inappropriate behavior, only to evade responsibility and then enrich yourself off your time in Congress is an abuse of power, an absence of character, and a violation of trust.

The existence of a secret hush fund that uses taxpayer money to settle sexual misconduct from members of Congress highlights exactly why people don’t trust Washington. That’s why we are ending it. From now on, members of Congress will be held accountable for their misbehavior, just like every other American.
The Good Accounting Obligation in Government (GAO-IG) Act would stop wasteful spending in federal agencies and bring needed accountability using GAO and IG reports, potentially saving taxpayers at least $87 billion.
"Federal agencies are using veiled actions to circumvent the normal rule-making process, greatly costing North Carolina families and employers with compliance burdens and wasted time navigating a bureaucratic nightmare. Every dollar and hour blown managing this is an opportunity lost, a job not created, and investment not going into our community.”
