    As prepared for delivery Thank you for that kind introduction. It is good to be in Florida and it is good to be among many friends. Last time I had the occasion to speak with some of you, we were in New York at the SEFCON Conference in October. Then, I talked about balancing new transparency regulations with the needs of market participants for flexibility. I still believe striking a balance in the Dodd-Frank regulation is the central challenge facing both regulators and the market today. We con... Read more

    “The number one priority for this Congress, as well as for the American people, is cutting spending to stimulate job creation. While I applaud the President’s call for a ban on earmarks and a five-year budget freeze on non-security discretionary spending, it is still not enough to hold spending at current rates and get our country back on the road to financial responsibility. “Actions speak louder than words. The time is now to make good on the fiscal promises that the President made tonight, and I look forward to seeing his plan be put into action. It isn’t what he says tonight, but what he does tomorrow that will matters for the future of our country.” Read more

  • MIKE CONAWAY: 'Cut-Go,' other new rules aimed at curbing spending

    Tags: Veterans, Fiscal Responsibility

    The best advice ever given for how to begin to get out of a hole is pretty simple: Stop digging. For years, our nation has been digging a huge hole, sinking deeper into debt because we borrow and spend money we do not have. Today, America finds itself in an unsustainable fiscal situation. During this term of Congress, my colleagues and I will be faced with many difficult decisions about how to right our financial house. It will not be easy, it will not be painless, and it will not be quick, but the future of our nation depends on our ability to renegotiate our financial commitments. Read more

    “I am delighted that my Republican colleagues did not back down, and were able to block this $1.1 trillion spending bill from coming to the floor for a vote. Not only did this bad legislation contain thousands of earmarks, it was also set to increase federal government spending by $18 billion over last year’s spending levels. “It is heartening that a modicum of sanity returned to Washington, D.C. just in time to avoid passing legislation that the American people clearly said on November 2 that they did not want. It is time for the current Congress to adjourn and make way for the next Congress to make the people’s agenda priority one.” Read more

    “I am outraged by this bloated, pork-laden, 2,000 page spending bill. Not only does this bill contain thousands of earmarks, it also increases federal government spending by $18 billion over last year’s spending levels. Members who support this ‘ominous omnibus’ must have just emerged from a time warp and missed the elections on November 2nd, as they have not taken into account the words and actions that the American people made loud and clear. Congress must not continue this out-of-control spending spree, and it is high time we listen to the American people and make essential cuts.” Read more
