Information related to Issues concerning The Constitution.
As a Member of the House Judiciary Committee as well as the Chairman of the Constitution Subcommittee, I remain absolutely committed to preserving our sacred Constitution and the inalienable rights it enumerates. In the spirit of our nation’s Founders, we must remember the self-evident truth that human beings do not have rights because of government; they have government because of their rights. America’s revolutionary experiment in liberty birthed a "shining city upon a hill," the freest, strongest, and wealthiest nation in the world, and as we continue to champion liberty, Congress must reaffirm the cornerstones of both national security and protecting the sanctity of all human life.
Elected officials owe it to the Constitution and to the American people they serve to defend every word of the Constitution. Any member of Congress who does not take this seriously is in violation of the oath he or she swore. I have always taken my oath very seriously, and I have always taken it upon myself to protect and defend the Constitution every day I have served in Congress. I will never do anything to underhandedly strip away from the spirit of the original Constitution. This remains one of my primary objectives during my service in Congress.
