Dear Friend,

I have heard from many friends and constituents with questions about the new Budget Control Act.  This bill is so important, I want to clear up any misinformation and make sure you have the facts.  That’s why I’m going to send you a series of email newsletters explaining the different parts of this legislation.

Dear Friend,

America has had enough.  Enough reckless, wasteful spending.  Enough piling up more and more debt.  You deserve to know the truth about America’s budget, and it’s my responsibility to make sure you have the real information.  No budget tricks, no more gimmicks, and no more empty promises.

Dear Friend,

Congress is scrutinizing President Obama’s involvement in Libya largely because of how he interpreted the War Powers Resolution before entering the conflict.  I have heard from many fellow Texans who are concerned about the issue. But first it is important to understand what exactly is the War Powers Resolution?
