Restoring Fiscal Sanity in Washington

150916_RickAllen_Cuts_FBLink

When I first started a small construction business 40 years ago, I never could have dreamed the drastic increase in spending that our country is experiencing. It seems to me that all the Democrats want to do is spend, spend, spend, and refuse to fix the real problems with mandatory spending that will break the country if not addressed.

The other side is calling for more taxes, more spending, more money from our hardworking small business owners, more regulations… And unfortunately,more money from all of our pockets. When is enough for them?

That’s why — just like I said I would in my last campaign — I supported a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution to ensure that our nation isn’t spending more than we take in.

I voted for a budget that balances in less than ten years — without raising taxes — and will put us once again in the black instead of the red.

I believe that being fiscally responsible is the only way to get our nation going back in the right direction, strengthen our economy, and preserve opportunities for future generations.

As a small businessman, I have signed both sides of a paycheck. I hear everyday about a family in need who somehow manages to sit down at the kitchen table and only spend what it takes to survive. That’s what Washington needs — a good dose of Georgia common sense. We need to get spending in Washington back on track. The futures of our children and grandchildren depend on it.

National Security as a Priority

160505_RickAllen_NationalSecurity

We live in a dangerous world. With a new day comes more news of a surprise attack, and the faces of our enemies continue to change with more militant groups stepping forward each day.

When America leads, the world is safe. But with an Administration who is unwilling to act, it only emboldens our attackers. Now is the time that we must be ever vigilant to combat the growing threat of terrorism.

That’s why I’ve worked with my colleagues in the House and Senate to pass meaningful reforms to ensure that our borders are secure.

I fought to strengthen our immigration laws and protect our homeland by voting to halt the Syrian refugee process and putting more restrictions on those traveling to the United States from Iraq and Syria. Those restrictions on foreign travelers were signed into law late last year.

Most recently, with my support, the House passed the Counterterrorism Screening and Assistance Act, which would require the Administration to assess how well other countries are screening against potential terrorists and set minimum standards around the world. We can then use this information to help our fellow nations close the gaps — and hold those who refuse to do so accountable.

That’s also why I have voted for funding for critical national security programs like the U.S. Army Cyber Command at Fort Gordon. We have folks right here in the 12th District who are battling cyberterrorism and protecting our troops everyday — and they deserve our support.

We can’t just sit on the sidelines while this President continues to refuse to combat the growing threat of ISIS and other radical Islamic terrorists around the world. We need a comprehensive strategy from the Commander-in-Chief, and yet all we get is inaction. I promise that I will continue to vote with your safety and security in mind, and continue to pass more meaningful reforms that will protect our homeland.

I will always do what it takes to keep America safe.

Getting Washington OUT of the Exam Room

160309_RickAllen_ObamacarePetition_FBLink

When I first came to Congress, one of my top priorities was to fulfill my campaign promise of not only voting to repeal Obamacare, but to actually send a repeal of this burdensome legislation to the President’s desk.

I am proud to say that with the help of my Republican colleagues in the House and Senate, I was able to keep my campaign promises and we were able to send a full dismantlement of Obamacare to the President’s desk. While the President may have vetoed this monumental legislation, it made a bold statement that his continued support of this unworkable law is on the wrong side of history. The American people need a change.

Obamacare has crippled the economy, prevented patients from being able to see their doctors, and sent premiums soaring through the roof.

A recent report has just been released stating that new Obamacare enrollees are sicker and more costly to cover than ever before. That means yet another round of skyrocketing premiums are at the ready to help cover the costs. Will the negative ramification of this legislation ever come to an end?

These unintended consequences are why I introduced H.R. 4262, the Transparency and Accountability of Failed Exchanges Act. As the implementation of Obamacare continues, more and more state exchanges are failing — with taxpayers footing the bill. Millions of dollars have already been spent in states like Oregon and Hawaii who attempted to set up state exchanges and ultimately abandoned them for the federal exchange.

My bill is a good government measure that calls for an audit to see how these funds were spent and requires states to return any equipment purchased with these funds to the federal government.

The problems with Obamacare keep coming everyday — not only from hard-working individuals like you, but on our small businesses and job creators. I refuse to stand by and do nothing at the cost of American jobs and families. The House has made Obamacare one of its top priorities, and I have cosponsored legislation to replace this with a patient-centered, sensible plan that will reduce spending and burdensome regulations.

Georgia families deserve better — I will never stop fighting for your rights in Washington.

Fighting for You in Washington

160518_RickAllen_RickAllenforCongress_Site

I knew Washington was a mess, but when I got there it was much worse than we thought. The people of Georgia deserve better. That’s why I ran for Congress in the first place — to fight for you.

During my time in office, I have followed through on my commitments — I supported a balanced budget amendment and a bill to end career politicians by limiting how long they can serve. I also fought to ensure that our national security remained a priority in Washington — I will do what it takes to keep America safe.

With your support, I will continue to stand up and fight for your conservative values in Washington because your rights and your voice matter.
