It is certainly the case that a President needs to have confidence in, and has the legal authority to remove, the FBI Director as they serve at the pleasure of the President. Having said that, I am troubled by the timing of the Director's dismissal. Director Comey made missteps, but if they were significant enough for his dismissal, it should have happened months ago.

Leaders must act. Obamacare is failing. We cannot stand by and idly watch as out of pocket costs for millions of Americans and their families skyrocket and insurers pull out of individual markets in our states (Aetna announced a pull out of Virginia yesterday and United the week before). While we are far from a final piece of legislation, today we advanced the vessel that will rid us of D.C.

As a member of the House Committee on Appropriations, I will fight to ensure that Congress does its job by keeping the government open. I support a full year appropriations bill for the remainder of FY17, as this would allow for an increase in defense spending while ensuring that vital government services aren’t shut down for the American taxpayers.

I commend Ambassador Nikki Haley for calling out both Russia and the Assad regime and the responsibility they both bear in yesterday’s atrocious attack on civilians, to include women and children. Chemical weapons have no place in warfare and the world must take an unflinching stance against their usage.
