“I am pleased the U.S. Senate saw the wisdom and joined in quickly and decisively passing the U.S. House’s North Korean sanctions bill in light of the rogue nation’s recent ballistic missile and nuclear tests,” said Cramer. “It is unfortunate the Senate does not understand North Korea’s behavior is the same activity we are currently seeing in Iran. North Korea’s continued pursuit of nuclear weapons, even after signing a similar nuclear deal, foreshadows Iran’s future actions. In light of the Senate’s failure to stop President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran, I hope they will join the House in imposing stiffer economic sanctions on Iran, as well as North Korea.”
“The President should not regulate and litigate just because he cannot legislate,” said Cramer. The Congress will not allow him to borrow millions so the federal government can lawyer up in order to push an anti-jobs, extreme environmental agenda. Our Indian Tribes are sovereign nations and should not have to hire a bank of attorneys to fight off Barack Obama’s legal team.”
Thankfully, the Supreme Court voted to stay the EPA’s implementation of the Clean Power Rule while North Dakota and 26 other states are suing in federal court to overturn these regulations. This is a major victory for North Dakota and the hard working men and women employed in our state’s energy sector.
“I am thankful the Administration is no longer considering housing unaccompanied alien children at the Grand Forks Air Force Base,” said Cramer. “I am still opposed to housing undocumented alien children at any military installation. In the Omnibus Spending Bill passed in December, Congress approved plenty of resources to construct facilities to house these children near the southern border to facilitate returning them to their parents in their own country.”
“Access to high quality, affordable broadband technology continues to transform the economy of rural America,” said Rep. Cramer. “I look forward to working with my colleagues and stakeholders to continue to foster its growth, for the benefit of North Dakota and the entire nation
