“In recent weeks there have been multiple reports in the media regarding the Office of the Secretary of State’s investigation into The New Georgia Project and Third Sector Development, some containing false information. I am issuing the following information in order to set the record straight. Ye…
To late. Congressman Tom Graves has already voted to use our tax dollars to back these Syrian Rebels.
Now comes word that the very groups we wish to train, fund, and arm have entered into a ceasefire agreement with ISIS. The President cannot answer one basic question: if we train, fund, and arm these rebels, how do we know they will fight ISIS and not just keep fighting the Syrian government? He cannot answer that. With this latest news, it appears less likely the rebels will fight ISIS.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES We as a nation must do something about ISIS. The organization is a threat to our national security. If we do not kill them now, they will come here to kill us.

Congressman Tom Graves HAS ONCE AGAIN VOTED AGAINST THE WISHES OF HIS CONSTITUENTS, The Heritage Foundation, and Freedom Works.
He voted "YES" for HJ RES 124 and help pass a unclean Continuing Resolution that continues funding of the EXPORT IMPORT BANK through June 30,2015.
Tom continues to bend to the request of the House leadership that supports crony capitalism and run away spending while ignoring his voters back home.
The passage of the Continuing Resolution brought a big smile to President Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi. Tom voted with Nancy on this.
Funding for the Syrian Rebels is also included.
HOW MUCH LONGER ARE WE GOING TO ALLOW TOM TO VOTE FOR RUN AWAY SPENDING AND AGAINST THE WISHES OF HIS CONSTITUIENTS?

They are more than just words on a piece of parchment. Our Constitution symbolizes a new way of governing, a radical shift that gave the power of the government to the people. We celebrate the Constitution today.
Happy Constitution Day! Sept. 17 marks the anniversary of the Constitutional Congress’s signing of the Constitution in 1787. In 2004, Constitution Day officially became a holiday.
Celebrate by re-reading the U.S. Constitution, which protects your rights as an American and is in perpetual need of protection from a government bent on overstepping the limitations laid out in the supreme law of the land: ... See MoreSee Less

Our own Rep. Tom Graves and Republicans in Washington will consider a "continuing resolution" (CR) this week to fund government operations after October 1st when the current fiscal year ends. It's a very bad deal for taxpayers.
First, the bill reauthorizes the Export-Import Bank, which is a corporate welfare program that picks winners and losers in the marketplace and provides loan guarantees to foreign companies.
Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) whom Tom Graves (R-GA) nominated and endorsed, promised to allow the bank to expire when he became House Majority Leader earlier this year. Instead, he's extending it, which is essentially a massive earmark for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
Second, it fails to place any restrictions on President Obama's plan to grant executive amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants or to stop Obamacare, which has been a total disaster for Americans this year.
The stated purpose for this capitulation is to avoid needless confrontation before the November elections. That way, Republicans can come back and control the budget process with a new Senate majority. But that's not true.
The Republican CR expires in December, creating a "lame duck" session that allows Harry Reid (D-NV) to write a massive omnibus bill.
If Tom Graves and Republicans were serious about stopping the president's agenda, they would not be punting these issues into a lame duck session.
But that's not all. It gets worse.
The CR also paves the way for a new Internet sales tax to be adopted during the lame duck session by allowing the ban on Internet taxes to expire in December rather than making it permanent. This will allow the Democrats to tack on a provision allowing states to tax Internet purchases across state lines.
The GOP leadership vowed to pass a "clean" CR, but this bill is anything but clean. It includes corporate welfare earmarks for their cronies and sets the stage for a massive, end-of-the-year omnibus bill that will become a liberal Christmas tree.
The worst part is that Republicans including Tom Graves if he votes for it, will pretend to be outraged by all of this after the election as if they had nothing to do with it.
The truth is every Republican who votes for this CR is responsible for what's in the bill and for what it helps pass in the lame duck.
Continue to call and contact Tom Graves to vote "NO" for this CR that includes funding for the EX IM Bank.
