Congressman Kevin Cramer today joined a majority of the U.S. House of Representatives to pass H.R. 3457, the Justice for Victims of Iranian Terrorism Act. This bill prohibits the President from waiving, suspending or limiting any sanctions currently in place against the Islamic Republic of Iran, until the President has certified to Congress Iran has paid each federal court judgement. The legislation will include judgments issued after the terrorism exception was created on April 24, 1996, to the most recent judgment on May 22 which utilized the terrorism exception. Congressman Cramer is co-sponsoring the legislation.
“This bill simply increases state’s flexibility in determining whether entities that perform elective abortions can participate as providers in their Medicaid programs,” said Cramer. “This is fundamentally a states’ rights issue.”
John Boehner announced his resignation with the same class indicative of his term as Speaker. With humility and grace he exits public life with more concern for his colleagues, his country and the institution he has served so well than he has for himself. He set an example for all of us that few of us are capable of matching. His selflessness is rare among his friends and nonexistent among his critics. I am better for knowing John Boehner and the House will have to settle for someone less courageous and steady than he is.
“Pope Francis’ message focusing on liberty, equality, justice, dialogue as well as the reaffirmation of the family should be uniting issues for all Americans. I am grateful to the Pontiff for his Pastoral encouragement. We are better having listened to his message of hope and humility. I join Pope Francis in asking God to Bless America.”
"This Congress and its relevant committees must complete a thorough investigation of the disturbing accusations evidenced in the Planned Parenthood videos before another taxpayer dollar goes to this controversial organization. These funds can be better used providing legitimate health services for women in places like North Dakota."
