Capitol Report: Working Toward a Solution

by Congressman Sam Graves

It’s been a long couple weeks in Washington as Congress and the White House seek a solution that would fully end the government shutdown. In the meantime, the House of Representatives has worked in a bipartisan manner to pass legislation that would fund and reopen key priorities and agencies in the interim.

For instance, on Oct. 2 we passed a resolution to fund cancer research at

Capitol Report: Extremely Unfortunate Shutdown

by Congressman Sam Graves

As I write, our government is mired in the midst of a shutdown for the first time since 1996. Congress’ inability to reach an agreement to keep the government open is extremely unfortunate as it personally affects so many Americans.

Here in the House, we’re working to find agreement to end this shutdown. As we continue to seek such an agreement, we’ve passed a series of

Capitol Report: Honoring Our Veterans

by Congressman Sam Graves

This past week, our nation commemorated the 12th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. We must always keep alive the memory of those we lost, and recall the heroic acts of valor that occurred that day, as firefighters and office workers, police officers and tourists, all worked together to save lives and comfort a nation. We must also thank the servicemen and women

Capitol Report: Taking Care of Our Veterans

by Congressman Sam Graves

I’m committed to making sure that we take care of those at home who have protected and fought for our freedom abroad. It’s a commitment we made and a commitment we must keep. That’s why I was proud to support several veterans-related bills in this session of Congress.

The Improving Job Opportunities for Veterans Act (HR 1412) would increase the number of jobs available to veterans

Capitol Report: Listening is Key

by Congressman Sam Graves

John Marshall, the longest serving Supreme Court Justice in history, once noted that, “To listen well is as powerful a means of communication and influence as to talk well.” Indeed, throughout my time in Congress, I have believed you can learn a lot more by listening.

That’s why I enjoyed traveling the Sixth Congressional District throughout the month of August. At every stop, dozens of people

Capitol Report: Making Government Leaner

by Congressman Sam Graves

A candidate vying to be president of the United States once said: “For three long years I have been going up and down this country preaching that government – federal, state and local – costs too much… we must abolish useless offices. We must eliminate unnecessary functions of government. We must consolidate subdivisions of government and, like the private citizens, give up luxuries which we can

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.

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
