· Today, Congressman Matt Salmon announced his 10th bill in a series of proposals to cut wasteful and duplicative federal spending. After introduction of the latest bill, which would eliminate funding for the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), Salmon said: “Here again, we see an example of the U.S. taxpayer burdened by an unaccountable, private entity that receives millions in taxpayer dollars annually to provide grants for artistic expression. There is no question that artistic expression should not be sanctioned or censored by government. At the same time, government should not compel taxpayers to subsidize works they find objectionable, such as the controversial work by Andres Serrano titled, Immersion (Piss Christ), which received $5,000 in taxpayer funds. At a time when the United States is over $17 trillion in debt, we should be looking to spend our money on causes and programs that unite and protect our nation. The National Endowment for the Arts is an agency that, at best, inserts government into the freedom of artistic expression from which it should remain carefully separated. At worst, the NEA favors certain works and excludes others, picking artistic winners and losers.”
· Congressman Trent Franks, co-chair of the Congressional Israel Allies Caucus and a ranking Republican member of the House Armed Services Committee, today took to the House floor to slam Obama for an “unprecedented act of cowardice and betrayal” in the Administration’s response (or lack thereof) to the barrage of rockets that have been launched at Israel this week. see one-minute video . Transcript: “Mr. Speaker, last month, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas openly united with the evil terrorist group, Hamas, and this very moment they are raining rockets down upon the innocent citizens of Israel. Half of all Israelis have sought cover in bomb shelters across their tiny country. And the Obama Administration has had the reprehensible gall to praise Abbas as someone who is “committed to non-violence and…cooperation with Israel,” and to further proclaim in an Israeli newspaper that, quote “Finally, peace is possible! Mr. Speaker, I thought nothing this President could say or do would surprise me anymore, but his flushed and breathless rush to embrace terrorists launching rockets at Israeli children is an unprecedented act of cowardice and betrayal. America’s fleet should this minute be off the coast of Israel,and the world, including Abbas, Hamas, and Hezbollah, should know that. America’s arsenal of freedom stands ready to defend our most precious ally in the world.”
· Congressman Paul A. Gosar In Support Of The State Of Israel And The Ongoing Attacks Against It: “For Decades, We Have Heard That Israel Is Our Biggest Ally In The Middle East. I Stand Firmly Behind That Manifesto. I Was Pleased To Hear That President Obama Picked Up His Presidential Telephone To Call Prime Minister Netanyahu, But I Believe That We Need To Send A More Defined Message To Israel’s Foes: If You Are Israel’s Enemy, Then You Are An Enemy Of The Unite States. I Introduced An Amendment To The FY15 National Defense Authorization Act In Order To Fully Support Israel’s Lawful Exercise Of Self-Defense, Including Actions To Halt Aggression. It Is Time That Our Actions Speak Louder Than Our Words. Recently, Israel Intercepted Iranian-Funded Weapons Headed For Gaza. Unfortunately, This Is Part Of A Long Culture Of Providing Weapons And Rocket Parts To Terrorist Cells Based In The Gaza Strip. Therefore, Israel Should Have The Absolute Right To Protect Her Citizen’s From Attacks Launched By Hamas Terrorists. If We Do Not Stand In Support Of Israel, We Will Witness The Demise Of Our Greatest Ally In The Middle East Due To Lack Of Support And Action From The White House. I Urge All My House Colleagues To Remain Committed Towards Pushing This Administration To Firmly Stand Behind Israel.”

· Gubernatorial Candidate Ken Bennett: The principles of being good neighbors as countries are the same principles as neighbors on a street. If someone wants to visit or stay a while, they call ahead, arrive at the front door, we meet them at the front door, and welcome them in with open arms. They don’t hop the fence, sneak into the garage and live out of the freezer. Time and time again, Arizona has suffered from our federal government’s inaction related to illegal immigration. Now, President Obama is requesting a $3.7 billion bailout to fix a problem exacerbated by his inaction. First and foremost, the federal government must act to secure the border. Secondly, we MUST streamline the process of legal immigration. As Senate President, I led the charge to pass immigration legislation that would have put our state in a better position to deal with border security today. The bill would have invested millions for high-tech radar detection systems, interdiction efforts, detention facilities and an allocation for the National Guard to enhance border security. It was incomprehensible that Governor Napolitano vetoed the bill at the time. Illegal immigration impacts Arizona every day, and the time for excuses and posturing has long since passed. As Governor, I will push for additional resources for DPS and our National Guard to support federal law enforcement officials along the border. The border can and will be secured. And we’ll do it without breaking the bank, or waiting for the federal government.
