Capitol Report: Keeping the IRS Out of Health Care

by Congressman Sam Graves

Washington has simply gotten too big, too bloated, and too intrusive in our everyday lives. That’s why this past week, the House of Representatives passed a package of bills designed to rein in excess, punish abuse, and hold bureaucrats accountable.

Among the bills approved by the House are ones to end lavish government employee conferences, allow the IRS to fire employees who engage in political targeting,

Capitol Report: Who is a Full Time Worker?

by Congressman Sam Graves

In 2010, Nancy Pelosi said we needed to pass the president’s healthcare law in order to find out what was in it. It turns out, even those who voted to pass the law are still finding out what is in it, three years later. To this day, we continue to discover new provisions which will negatively impact businesses, workers, and the overall economy.

As you may

Capitol Report: Delaying the Healthcare Mandates

by Congressman Sam Graves

Last week, I noted that the Obama Administration announced it was delaying Obamacare’s ‘employer mandate,’ requiring all businesses with 50 or more employees to provide their full-time workers with an affordable healthcare option or face a penalty.

We know that some small businesses have reduced employees’ hours or held off hiring in their scramble to comply with this law’s heavy-handed requirements. For instance, the U.S. Chamber

Capitol Report: More Healthcare Uncertainty

by Congressman Sam Graves

You may have heard that the Obama Administration recently announced it was delaying the ‘employer mandate,’ a key component of the Affordable Care Act. The mandate requires all businesses with 50 or more employees provide their full-time workers with an affordable healthcare option or face a penalty.

While this delay may provide some relief for the Administration, it won’t help small businesses that will still have

Capitol Report: Reducing Government Waste

by Congressman Sam Graves

Sequestration offered Washington a real chance to reduce wasteful spending within the Federal government. Instead, the Obama Administration took advantage of the situation for political gain.

Think about the Department of Defense’s attempt to reduce tuition assistance for the brave men and women who serve our nation in the Armed Forces; or the White House indefinitely cancelling all White House tours during one of the busiest

Capitol Report: The Declaration of Independence

by Congressman Sam Graves

On July 3, 1776, a 41 year-old patriot named John Adams wrote a letter to his wife describing the Declaration of Independence that the Continental Congress would adopt the next day. The future president wrote, “I am well aware of the Toil and Blood and Treasure, that it will cost Us to maintain this Declaration, and support and defend these States. Yet through all the Gloom

Capitol Report: Nominations to the Academies

by Congressman Sam Graves

It’s a privilege to represent the people of Missouri’s 6th District in Congress. From Kansas City to Bethany across to Kirksville and Bowling Green, I enjoy the honor of serving the residents of 36 counties in North Missouri. Part of my job is to keep people up‑to‑date as to what’s happening in Washington. One resource I use is these weekly updates to highlight a topic of

Graves’ Statement on Farm Bill

Congressman Sam Graves issued the following statement after the U.S. House of Representatives did not agree to passage of a five‑year Farm Bill. The measure was rejected by House lawmakers by a vote of 195 yea, 234 nay. The current farm law expires Sept. 30.

“I’m disappointed that the House failed to pass a Farm Bill. Passage of the bill would have marked a critical step in moving us toward

Capitol Report: Our Second Amendment Rights

by Congressman Sam Graves

It seems every year there’s another attempt in Congress to weaken our Second Amendment rights. Gun control bills come in all shapes and sizes. But this year, gun opponents have a new tactic up their sleeve: new taxes and fees on the purchase of firearms or ammunition.

Just look at what Cook County, IL – home to the City of Chicago – recently did. The County
