  6. Kurt Faulhammer From the Office of the Speaker Kurt Faulhammer In a speech to the Brady Campaign DNC Chairwoman Evelyn Vanderfleet claimed it is important to respect the Second Amendment yet in the same speech called for the revoking of the Second Amendment rights of millions of Americans. In the speech she advocates for the minimum age to buy a gun be raised from 18 to 21. She contends that with the drinking age being 21 why would it be unreasonable for the age of purchase for firearms being set at 21 being out of the question? The answer is very simple and easy to see for anyone who respects the Second Amendment, the right to bear arms is a Constitutional right and drinking alcohol is not. The Constitution is very clear on the matter. Implementing such a measure would violate the Constitutional rights of millions of young Americans merely for being a young adult. This ageist discrimination is disgusting and shows how little faith she has in young people to make smart and safe decisions in regards to firearms despite being grown adults. It is clear that taking away Constitutional rights is something the Democratic leadership believes strongly in and a vote for any senate candidate endorsed by Mrs. Vanderfleet, those being Beau Bennett of West Virginia, Isabella Valentina of Nevada, Alexis Parraz of New York, Booker Marshall of Tennessee, Alex Truboenski of Montana, and Violet Dominguez of Arizona, is a vote towards enacting this unconstitutional attack on the right to bear arms of millions until they denounce her radical, un-American, and unconstitutional anti-gun extremist views.

  7. Kurt Faulhammer From the Office of Speaker Kurt Faulhammer I personally as a representative of the Republican majority and apart of Republican leadership unequivocally denounce the Alt Right, white supremacy, and white nationalism which all have nothing to do with our party or our values. That said there is no need to pass a non-binding resolution and waste a place on the docket when there is still much reform that needs to be done in this country. This is a fringe movement that would be receiving more attention than it deserves if we were to put Mr. Ward's bill on the house floor. Mr. Ward says that we need to be wary of the rise of David Duke, but he is almost 70 years old and hasn't run for office in nearly two decades. The Alt Right have no political candidates running for office, no real world presence, and no clout in Washington whatsoever. In the meantime, we're going to get to work delivering to the public tangible results for all Americans in the form of tax reform, repealing and replacing Obamacare, and protecting the lives of the unborn by defunding Planned Parenthood among other things.

  8. Kurt Faulhammer From the Office of Speaker Kurt Faulhammer I want to respond to the DNC chair's official stances of nay against The Ending Common Core Act and Make Education Local Act since I think they make very weak arguments some of which are grounded in nothing. First, with the Ending Common Core Act, they claim that many students have benefited from Common Core yet cite nothing to make their case. They do so because the numbers aren't on their side. We've only declined academically since it's implementation. For example, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development data for math shows in 2009 before the implementation of Common Core the United States scored a 487, as of this year we've scored a 430. In reading in 2009 we scored as a country a 500 but currently have scored a 497. Lastly for science in 2009 we scored a 509 yet currently have scored a 496. The DNC claims that Common Core has helped us achieve yet when you look at the numbers we've only declined since it was implemented. We're not looking to amend something that is part of the problem, we were better of without Common Core to begin with. Not only does the DNC in their stance against this bill go against what most teachers want, they are going against what many of their endorsed senate candidates want such is the case with Alexis Parraz and Beau Bennett among others. In fact there isn't a single candidate they have endorsed that has spoken in support of Common Core but yet they take the stance they do. Does the DNC leadership claim to know what's better for teachers than teachers themselves? I don't believe they know better but they regardless vote to uphold a broken status quo instead of making real change for education. It's time for Washington to stop telling teachers how to teach. Secondly, with the Make Education Local Act they claim that the bill favors private schools over public schools yet if you read the bill yourself all it states is that students in private schools should be treated equitably. Is the DNC suddenly against people being treated equitably? The parents of children in private school pay taxes for education just like anyone else why shouldn't their children receive the benefits that their parents pay for? As for the bill making public schools follow the rules and guidelines of private schools the bill doesn't do that whatsoever and they didn't cite where in the bill it does that for a good reason. All it does is allow the states themselves who are more knowledgeable to the nuances of education in their states than Washington DC to control their education. They claim that we're making things stricter for public schools yet the bill removes fiscal and accounting barriers on schools so I have no idea where this claim comes from either. All the DNC has is fear-mongering with no basis to the language of the bill that this is some sort of scheme to defund public schools which it does not do. If anything it makes funds more efficiently distribute funds for public schools by getting federal bureaucracy out of the way. The DNC even attacks the notion of accountability for public schools as though informing parents in yearly reports on how funds are being used is a bad thing. Once again with their nay vote the DNC looks to maintain a failing status quo in education. Instead of putting the control of education in the hands of local communities who are impacted by decisions in education the most they content they know better. As seen though with the OECD statistics mentioned previously we've only done worse as the federal government has intervened more in education. Let's get Washington out of the way of teachers and let educational decisions be made by people locally. That is the way we will get education in this country on the right track again. View full PR

    Concealed Carry Reciprocity Act

    *Hands off gavel* Mr. Speaker, Concealed carry holders are some of the most law abiding citizens in our country committing crimes at one-sixth to one-tenth the rate of police officers who themselves commit crimes at a fraction of the rate of the general public. Regression estimates show that each percentage increase in concealed carry holders is correlated with a 2.5 percent decrease in the murder rate. Concealed carry holders have as well stopped numerous mass shooting incidents for which we thank them. Concealed carry promotes greater safety and the gentlewoman from California has shown no statistical basis for her claim that this bill promotes a lack of safety. As for why this bill is necessary, one can look at the cases of Donna Gracey or Shaneen Allen both of which were arrested merely for being in a state where their concealed carry permits weren't recognized. These are arrests that didn't need to be made and these women did not pose some greater threat to the public. The second amendment does not differentiate between concealed carry or open carry both of which are apart of constitutional rights to bear arms. In the 2008 Supreme Court case of District of Columbia vs Heller it was made clear what it is meant by bearing arms, Justice Scalia quoting Justice Ginsberg's writing in a previous case said the following "using a most familiar meaning is, as the Constitution's Second Amendment indicates: 'wear, bear, or carry upon the person or in the clothing or in a pocket, for the purpose of being armed and ready for offensive or defensive action in the case of conflict with another person". A firearm being in the clothing or in a pocket is concealed carry. In the 14th amendment it explicitly states that "no state shall make or enforce any law that abridges the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States". Section 5 of the 14th Amendment says that "Congress shall have the power to enforce, by appropriate legislation, the provisions of this article". Being that the Supreme Court ruling of McDonald vs Chicago has ruled that states and municipalities must honor and abide by the Second Amendment it is within our grounds as Congress to protect the Second Amendment rights of citizens traveling outside their home state. "Shall not infringe" is not a buzzword, it's the language of the Constitution and are guidelines from which we run this country. It is not wild west rhetoric it predates there being a Western United States. You don't have to like the wording, but you can't claim to support the Second Amendment if you oppose it. I yield *Hands on gavel*

(a) In General.—There is authorized to be appropriated, and appropriated, $600,000,000 annually for the community health center program under section 330 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 254b), in addition to any other funds made available to such program, for the period for which the funding limitation under section 3(a) applies.

  13. IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES Mr. Faulhammer introduced the following bill; A BILL To incentivize teachers to teach in high poverty schools Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE. This Act may be cited as the “High Poverty School Teacher Tax Credit Act”. SEC. 2. SENSE OF CONGRESS. (a) Findings.—Congress finds the following: (1) High-poverty schools struggle to attract and retain teachers. (2) A quality gap exists between teachers in high poverty and low poverty schools. (3) A significant gap in pay exists between teachers in high poverty and low poverty schools. (4) The proposed tax credit would have a similar cost to what the federal government spends on graduate medical education. (5) A tax credit could likely result in an even larger take home bonus than the proposed $10,000 since it is a tax credit on after-tax income. SEC. 3. Tax credit. (a) Teachers at schools with 75% or more of students on free or reduced-price lunch (FRPL) will receive a $10,000 refundable credit on their yearly income taxes. (b) Teachers at schools with 50% to 74% of students with FRPL will receive a refundable credit on their yearly incomes taxes that declines by $400 per percentage down from the full $10,000 credit at 75%.
