Thank You!

Posted on by dsachtleben

“The people of Louisiana’s 4th District joined with voters all across our great land on Election Day to send a strong conservative message. Together we elected a Congress that will continue to fight to repeal Obamacare, that will roll back the job-crushing regulations imposed by the Obama Administration, that will work to rebuild our great military from the cuts of recent years, and that will stand against the president’s efforts to encourage illegal immigration.

To my constituents in Louisiana, I am grateful for your trust in me and proud to represent your values in Washington. [……]

Fleming Endorsed for Cutting Wasteful Government Spending

Posted on by dsachtleben

Shreveport, LA – Congressman John Fleming, M.D., released the following statement after receiving the endorsement of the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste Political Action Committee (CCAGW PAC):

 

“I’m proud to have been labeled a Taxpayer Hero by CCAGW for working to cut wasteful spending, reduce taxes, and make government more accountable and transparent. President Obama and Washington liberals have not made that fight easy, piling up record deficits, and creating a new entitlement that assures more debt. But, I will continue to fight to cut government spending, to repeal Obamacare, to reduce the tax burden on hard-working Americans, and to stop this government from heaping more debt on the backs of our children and grandchildren.” [……]

It’s Time to Focus on Defeating Landrieu

Posted on by dsachtleben

“Mary Landrieu needs to be replaced in 2014. Her record is abysmal. She’s turned her back on Louisiana values and become a full-fledged devotee of the Obama agenda.

“I’m grateful for the many Louisianians who have urged me to challenge Senator Landrieu in 2014. We share a desire to replace her in the U.S. Senate. That desire is so strong, that for me to enter the race now would risk a contest between two experienced Republican Congressmen, potentially offering Senator Landrieu a path back to Washington. [……]

Posted on by dsachtleben

Shreveport, LA – Congressman John Fleming, M.D., released the following statement in response to Senator Mary Landrieu’s vote against a Senate procedure that could keep the Senate from limiting the Second Amendment (Roll Call vote #87), and her vote against an amendment that would have prevented the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty (Roll Call vote #91):

Landrieu Supports Higher Taxes and More Spending

Posted on by dsachtleben

Shreveport, LA – Congressman John Fleming, M.D., released the following statement in response to Senator Mary Landrieu’s vote for higher taxes in a budget that does not balance (Roll Call vote #92):

“Now we know why Mary Landrieu and Washington Democrats took four years to finally pass a budget. The budget she voted for last weekend calls for nearly $1 trillion in new taxes. And, despite those massive tax increases on hard-working Louisianians, the budget Landrieu supported also does not balance at any point over the next decade. [……]

Landrieu Supports Taxes on Life-Saving Medical Devices and Subsidized Health Care for Illegal Immigrants

Posted on by dsachtleben

Shreveport, LA – Congressman John Fleming, M.D., released the following statement after Senator Mary Landrieu voted against repealing Obamcare (Roll Call vote #51), voted for the medical device tax (Roll Call vote #47), and voted for taxpayer-funded health care coverage for illegal immigrants (Roll Call vote #77):

 

“What is she thinking? Thirty-two Senate Democrats voted last week to repeal the medical device tax. But not Mary Landrieu. The Obamacare medical device tax has killed jobs and stifled innovation. Worse yet, the tax threatens the well being of patients by slapping a $29 billion tax on the medical device industry, making MRI machines and pacemakers more expensive. [……]
