Capitol Report: Grand Old, High Flying Flag

by Congressman Sam Graves

On June 14, 1777, the Second Continental Congress passed a resolution stating: “Resolved, That the flag of the United States be thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen stars, white in a blue field, representing a new Constellation.”

That new constellation, of course, consisted of the 13 original colonies that were fighting for our independence at the time. George Washington is credited

Capitol Report: Challenging the EPA

by Congressman Sam Graves

As Chairman of the House Small Business Committee, I frequently hear about ill-advised or overly burdensome Federal regulations, both those that are on the books and those in the pipeline. One of the worst offenders when it comes to such regulations is the Environmental Protection Agency, or EPA – and they’re back at it again.

The agency recently announced a plan to take a heavy hand

Capitol Report: Celebrating America’s Teachers

by Congressman Sam Graves

We all surely have a teacher from our childhood who inspired us to become what we are today. Whether it was because they were able to explain things easily or stayed after school to help us understand a subject, chances are that a teacher had a big influence in your life.

The week of May 6th marks National Teacher Appreciation Week, a time to pay tribute

Capitol Report: Protecting Missourians’ Privacy

by Congressman Sam Graves

Last week we learned that the State Highway Patrol, not once but twice, sent a disc containing the names of 163,247 Missourians who have concealed carry permits to the Federal government, supposedly as part of an investigation by the Social Security Administration (SSA) into individuals claiming to have a mental illness in order to receive disability benefits.

The first question this raises is, why is the

Capitol Report: Stopping Burdensome Regulations

by Congressman Sam Graves

One of the biggest complaints I hear from small businesses is about the regulations coming from Washington. Many of those regulations are implemented without getting input from the small businesses that are affected. A small business owner trying to beat the competition, make payroll and keep the business open may not have time to read proposed rules in Washington.

Most small businesses don’t have lawyers or

Capitol Report: 3rd Anniversary of Health Care Reform Law

by Congressman Sam Graves

On Saturday President Obama’s massive health reform law turned three years old. This law isn’t about reforming our health care system, it’s about a government takeover of the health care industry. So, it shouldn’t be a surprise that three years later, the law’s disastrous consequences continue to be uncovered. Just last week, we learned that “some Americans could see their insurance bills double next year,” according

Capitol Report: Combating Illegal Immigration

by Congressman Sam Graves

America is a nation of immigrants, and we are enriched and strengthened as a nation by our diversity. We are also a nation of laws, and illegal immigration cannot be rewarded with either amnesty or our tax dollars. As your voice in Washington, I support legislative initiatives protecting against unlawful entry into our country, preserving American jobs, and strengthening our national security.

That’s why I have

Capitol Report: Simplify the Tax Code

by Congressman Sam Graves

If you have friends or neighbors who are accountants, you may have noticed they are burning the midnight oil right now. It’s tax season and many Americans are gathering paperwork and looking for receipts. The tax code has ballooned into a monster that is four times longer than the complete works of William Shakespeare.

I’ve never understood why we need a tax code that is so

Capitol Report: Boosting Our Energy

by Congressman Sam Graves

Lately, I’ve noticed store shelves carry an ever increasing variety of energy drinks. They are stocked with every flavor, color, shape and size you might want. I don’t know if these drinks actually provide more energy or not. I do know that the United States needs an energy boost, but there is no magic bottle to do it. The only solution is to increase our domestic
