SALMON VOTES TO HOLD THE GOVERNMENT ACCOUNTABLE TO YOU
Votes to Keep IRS away from Obamacare
Washington—Today, Rep. Matt Salmon (AZ-05) released the following statement regarding his vote on a few key bills that passed the U.S. House of Representatives this week aimed at reducing federal government intrusion into the lives of Arizonans.
“Now more than ever, Americans need their lawmakers to pass policies that will finally unshackle the chains of government regulation, and create an economy where the private sector can flourish, create more jobs and spur more investment. As Ronald Reagan once said, ‘government is not the solution to our problems – government is the problem’.
“With President Reagan’s words in mind, I voted for a series of bills that puts an end to government abuse and reduces the federal government’s intrusion in our families and businesses.”
“Because we’ve already seen over 45,000 pages of regulation created in just 2013, I voted in favor of H.R. 367, the Regulations In Need of Scrutiny Act (REINS Act). This legislation states that economically significant regulations estimated to have an economic impact greater than $100 million are required to have the approval of Congress.
“In keeping my pledge to eliminate Obamacare and all its harmful rules and regulations, I was proud to vote for H.R. 2009, Keep the IRS Off Your Health Care Act. With the IRS and its government bureaucrats set to create an office solely dedicated to control nearly 50 aspects of Obamacare’s implementation, it’s critical we keep them away from this harmful piece of legislation.
“Finally, I was proud to support H.R. 2879, Stop Government Abuse Act, which targets government bureaucrats and officials who abuse their power. Sadly, we have seen this abuse by agencies like the IRS, EPA, and the NSA.
As Congress returns to their districts for the August work period, I look forward to talking with my constituents on ways we can further hold the government accountable to the American people.”
Rep. Matt Salmon (AZ-05) serves on the House Committee on Foreign Affairs as Chairman of the Subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere. He is also a member of the House Committee on Education and the Workforce.
