Take a stand against Obama’s job-killing War on Coal
Earlier this month, President Obama side-stepped Congress once again by introducing radical, coal-killing EPA regulations that will lead to skyrocketing energy costs and effectively put a target on the back of tens of thousands of American jobs.
Rather than focusing on common-sense solutions to put Americans back to work, Obama’s new EPA regs will lead to long-term, permanent job loss across the country.
Even a big-labor union recently admitted that the new EPA regulations will eliminate nearly 500,000 American jobs.
This is unacceptable. We cannot allow our President to force his liberal agenda on the American people, and kill much-needed jobs.
This is why I need your help.
Together we can put an end to Obama’s War on Coal.
I’m doubling down
This Memorial Day weekend I spent a lot of time reflecting on the great sacrifices so many have made to protect and defend all that we hold dear.
While many lost their lives serving our great nation, over 21 million veterans still live today – many of them here in Tennessee’s 8th District.
Which is why I wanted to let you know that I’m doubling-down on my pledge to stand up for and protect America’s veterans, who so selflessly served our great county.
I will continue to find solutions for their unique problems, hold the Obama Administration accountable for its blatant mishandling of veterans health care, and fight for reforms so our veterans receive the attention and care they have earned.
As we enjoy the day filled with friends, family and cookouts, let us not forget what today is really about — that all that we enjoy as Americans, rests on the backs of so many who have sacrificed for the many freedoms we so often take for granted.
Let us not take for granted those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our liberty and freedoms.
Please join me in honoring our fallen soldiers and thanking our service members for making America the greatest nation in the history of the world.
Have a happy and safe Memorial Day!
Don’t be fooled
Don’t be fooled by the liberal media — they’re claiming the President’s health care law is a victory, when in reality it’s anything but.
A new report that came out this week reveals that 74% of Obamacare enrollees already had health insurance; just 26% reported being previously uninsured. And that figures drops down to 22% when considered alongside whether or not the individual has actually paid their first month’s premium or not.
Translation: folks who were forced off the plans they liked thanks to Obamacare, ended up going through the exchanges to replace said lost plans.
To make matters worse many of these plans have increased monthly premiums or deductibles, making it more costly to have health insurance for the millions of Americans who were happy with the plans they previously had.
Which begs the question? Who is Obamacare helping? And a what cost?
The power to defeat big government
Did you know that up until the end of last month U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services (FWS) was actively trying to expand the acquisition boundaries of the Chickasaw and Lower Hatchie National Wildlife Refuges in Dyer, Lauderdale, Tipton and Haywood counties?
This massive expansion would have resulted in the federal government purchasing 120,000 acres — over 1,000 privately owned parcels, making it the largest refuge west of the Mississippi. This would have dramatically changed the lives of folks here in the 8th District.
But I have good news: with the help of constituents like you, we were able to stop FWS from making this major land grab!
We can’t forget that even though the Obama Administration is fighting hard to push their big government agenda on America, we have the power to stop them.
We can’t forget that when we work together to stand up for our values, for West Tennessee — we have the power to defeat big government!
I hope you’ll continue to stand with me in the months ahead as I continue to fight for the people of West Tennessee, and against liberal, big government initiatives.
I wanted to take a moment to wish you and your loved ones a very happy and safe Easter Holiday. Thank you all for the continued support and may you have a blessed day celebrating with friends and family.
An important announcement
Tonight at the Michael Reagan event in Jackson, I announced I’m seeking re-election in Tennessee’s 8th Congressional District.
I was elected by the people of West Tennessee to fight Washington bureaucrats and the status quo. I promised families, hard-working taxpayers, and small business owners that I would fight job killing, big government regulations and that’s exactly what I’ve done. I was sent to protect our 2nd Amendment rights and the Constitution, and I have.
I remain steadfast in my fight for common-sense, conservative policies that will result in good-paying jobs that help restore and grow Tennessee’s, and America’s, economy. And I remain committed to restoring the American people’s faith and trust in their government by following through on my promises and commitments.
It has truly been an honor and a privilege to serve West Tennessee. It is my hope that the constituents of the 8th District will allow me to continue serving on their behalf.
62% of American voters think the country is on the wrong track.
I’m one of them.
It’s time to change course.
We need to make life better for those who are actively looking for work but can’t find a job.
We need to get rid Obamacare, which is killing jobs and putting Washington bureaucrats between you and your doctors.
We need big-government to stop recklessly spending your hard-earned money, and get our debt and deficit under control.
We need to return to Constitutional, conservative principles.
I’m fighting to get America back on the right track, but I can’t do this alone. I need your help.
- Let me know you’re part of the team by joining me on Facebook and Twitter
- Invite your friends and neighbors to sign-up for email updates
- Donate $10 to help me fight big government policies that holding America back
Together we’ll restore constitutional principles of limited government and personal liberty and get America back on the right track.
An Evening with Michael Reagan
You’re cordially invited to an evening with Michael Reagan. Details below.
The IRS is at it again!
Do you know what happens when someone publicly criticizes liberal big government? Under President Obama, there’s a chance they’ll be targeted by the Internal Revenue Service.
Just last year we discovered this was true when we found out the IRS was secretly targeting conservative organizations for more intensive screening during their application process to receive tax-exempt status.
Now, the Obama administration wants to take it a step further and unilaterally alter America’s tax code in hopes of further silencing political speech.
If implemented, the new IRS regulations will drastically limit the free speech of 501(c)(4) groups (like veterans’ organizations, civic education programs, and many important nonprofits) by:
- Limiting affected groups’ ability to criticize or praise the policies of any federal, state, or local politicians within 30 days of a primary or 60 days of a general election
- Forcing affected groups to remove any references to politicians from their websites during these time periods
- Limiting affected groups’ ability to hold candidate debates or forums during these time periods
- Limiting affected groups’ ability to distribute voting guides and legislative scorecards
- Limiting affected groups’ ability to weigh in on nominees for federal, state, or local appointed government positions
Of course the Administration made sure these new rules won’t affect their favorite beneficiaries — labor unions. Unions just so happen to fall into the nearly identical 501 (c)(5) tax classification, and this next tax code overhaul intentionally leaves them untouched, allowing them to play politics as usual.
In spite of these facts, President Obama still claims there’s “not even a smidgen of corruption” going on at the IRS. But Americans like you and me think otherwise — 64% of voters think the IRS is corrupt!
It’s time we stopped pretending the IRS is innocent, and started demanding the Obama administration stops punishing those who disagree with the President.
