The prerequisite to prosperity is keeping spending under control and not pushing our country further into debt.

With our country in the toughest economic situation since perhaps the Great Depression, the House of Representatives, along with the support of Congressman Rohrabacher, has passed several pieces of legislation that would:

  1. Empower small business owners
  2. Fix the tax code to help job creators
  3. Increase the competitiveness for U.S. manufacturers
  4. Encourage entrepreneurship and growth
  5. Maximize domestic energy production
  6. Pay down America's unsustainable debt burden

These bills range from the "Protecting Jobs from Government Interference Act" (H.R. 2587) to the "Jobs and Energy Permitting Act of 2011" (H.R. 2021).  Unfortunately, most of these bills are still awaiting action in the Senate.  Rep. Rohrabacher will continue to encourage his Senate counterparts to take up this enterprising legislation and will continue to support sensible legislation that encourages job creation and economic growth.

Weed. It's become serious business. No longer stigmatized as the drug of the unambitious and basement-ridden (ok, it still has some of that stigma), it is now a dynamic political topic and, in some states and cities, a burgeoning industry.

So, how did we get here? More importantly, where are we going?

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-CA, released the following statement regarding President Obama’s executive action Thursday to shield certain immigrants, known to be in the country illegally, from deportation:

“The president thumbed his nose at Congress, and for that matter the Constitution, by doing exactly what he said numerous times he could not do legally. That is certainly no way to bring about the cooperation between both ends of Pennsylvania Avenue the American people voted for earlier this month. It shows an autocratic contempt for our democratic governing system.
