Rep. Thomas Massie Calls Out NRA Traitors For ‘Horrible’ Gun Control Scheme

After the massacre at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas claimed the lives of 60 people this weekend with hundreds more being wounded, the National Rifle Association (NRA) capitulated to their opponents and gave their full support for new gun control measures meant to ban bump stocks. This is completely unacceptable in the eyes of Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY), the liberty-minded legislator who was voted into office because of the momentum of the Ron Paul revolution and tea party movement. He was sent to office to stand for the Constitution, not to turn his back on it as soon as… Keep Reading

Thomas Massie: Eliminate Social Security Taxes To Give Relief To Seniors

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) is very concerned about the solvency of our nation’s entitlement programs, but does not want the failing programs to be propped up by forcing more money out of the pockets of cash-strapped senior citizens. This is one of the reasons why he introduced the “Senior Citizens Tax Elimination Act” to end taxes on Social Security income. “[Social Security] has been constructed kind of to be a Ponzi scheme. They are scraping money off the payments to make other payments,” Massie said during a Washington Examiner interview. He claims that government is devising more ways to rob… Keep Reading

Chamber Of Commerce Calls Thomas Massie “Piece Of Sh-t” For Voting Against Harvey Aid

It is an open secret that the Chamber of Commerce, a ‘pro-growth’ organization commonly associated with the right wing of American politics, has a seething contempt for principled conservatives and libertarians, but it is rare for them to come right out and say it. Yesterday, the veil was finally removed as the Northern Kentucky Chamber called Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) “a piece of sh-t” on their public Twitter account. Massie was one of three legislators who voted against the Congressional relief package for Hurricane Harvey. This has caused him to take flak from observers who felt his vote was heartless… Keep Reading

Fiscally Conservative Lawmakers Under Fire After Voting Against Hurricane Harvey Aid

Three hardline members of Congress–Reps. Justin Amash (R-MI), Thomas Massie (R-KY) and Andy Biggs (R-AZ)–raised eyebrows today after they voted against a popular aid package that would help Americans who were devastated by the carnage of Hurricane Harvey. “Congress should provide disaster relief funding, and we should pay for it now instead of billing our children and grandchildren for it,” Amash said in a tweet, making it clear that he isn’t against helping the needy but wants to do so in a responsible manner. Massie and Biggs have not released public statements regarding their votes at the present time. The… Keep Reading

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) has never shied away from controversy in Congress, and that has not changed regarding Confederate monuments.

On Russia Sanctions, Only Three Republican Legislators Stand Courageously With Trump

When President Donald Trump complained recently about how few prominent Republicans had his back, he was not kidding. A recent House vote to tie up the President, undermine his foreign policy, and partially remove his discretion pertaining to Russia passed with only three GOP legislators objecting. Reps. Jimmy Duncan (R-TN), Thomas Massie (R-KY) and Justin Amash (R-MI) were the three lone “no” votes against a successful measure limiting Trump’s ability to remove sanctions on Russia that were approved by Congress. This maneuver may harm Trump’s ability to conduct diplomacy with Russia, and further jeopardize tenuous relations with the nation. Hiding… Keep Reading

Massie Expresses Disgust Over Military Transgender Funding While Amash Defends His Actions

Liberty-minded Reps. Thomas Massie (R-KY) and Justin Amash (R-MI) have hit an impasse when it comes to military transgender funding. Massie is up-in-arms over Congress’ decision to reject an amendment to the 2018 NDAA proposed by Vicky Hartzler (R-MO) to ban military transgender funding while Amash is standing by his controversial vote against the amendment. “I voted to reverse Obama’s policy of allowing the military to pay for sex changes for soldiers. I’m shocked and disappointed that this amendment failed,” Massie wrote in a post on his Congressional Facebook page. “The sponsor of the legislation says that paying for sex… Keep Reading

Reps. Justin Amash And Thomas Massie Clash Over Military Transgender Funding

Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) and Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) have been thick as thieves throughout their Congressional tenure, but find themselves more frequently at odds during the Trump era. Their most recent disagreement stems from a failed amendment to the 2018 NDAA that would have banned the funding of transgendered surgeries by the military. “Still in disbelief that Congress passed a defense authorization (NDAA) earlier today that funds sex changes for members of the military, as well as $43 billion for our 17th year of the war in Afghanistan. I voted no,” Massie wrote in a Facebook post after the… Keep Reading

Amash Backs House Resolution Affirming NATO Article 5

Although much of the attention regarding Rep. Justin Amash’s recent votes has been directed at his opposition to Kate’s Law and defunding sanctuary cities, on Wednesday, the Congressman voted in favor of resolution H. Res 397, “Solemnly reaffirming the commitment of the United States to the North Atlantic Treaty Organizations principle of collective defense as enumerated in Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty”.

Rep. Thomas Massie: We Need The Concealed Carry Of Pistols Inside The Beltway!

In the wake of last week’s terrorist shooting of Republican lawmakers and their aides during a Congressional baseball practice, many legislators are calling for action to make sure that a tragedy like this does not occur again. While Democrats are predictably calling for more gun control, one intrepid legislator has taken the opposite approach by calling for concealed carry inside the beltway! “It’s clear that the Capitol Hill police who were there were heroic, but had Steve Scalise not been there, there would have been fatalities, and a lot of congressmen would have been hurt,” Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) said… Keep Reading

Rep. Thomas Massie Enthusiastic About Trump Infrastructure Plan

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) appeared to back the Trump infrastructure plan, including the proposal to privatize air traffic control, during a Tuesday interview on Fox Business. Asked whether he believed the the air traffic control privatization proposal could work, Massie replied: “I think it’s completely possible, they’ve done it in other countries, they’ve got better air traffic control than we do, it’s certainly more modern in Canada and Australia where they’ve done this.” The proposal has garnered plaudits from fiscal conservatives, receiving quick support from Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) and Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX). Massie went on to mention his own bipartisan legislation to allow airports… Keep Reading

While most Republicans are breathing a sigh of relief that FBI Director James Comey was relieved of his position, Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) is not among them.

He has openly expressed his disdain for Trump, saying that he trusts Comey more than the President.

Rep. Massie: Trumpcare “Falls Far Short” Of GOP Promises To Repeal Obamacare

Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) is not afraid to go against the grain. He opposed Trump, the House GOP leadership, and even his common allies in the House Freedom Caucus by voting against the American Health Care Act (AHCA). He would not buckle under the pressure, and despite its passage by a narrow margin, Massie is not backing down. “We voted on a health-care bill for which the text was available only a few hours before the vote,” Massie said in a Highland County Press op/ed. “In fact, the Congressional Budget Office had no time to even provide Congress with a… Keep Reading

It has been a tumultuous start to Trump’s Presidency as the inexperienced outsider adjusts to life in Washington DC, but Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY) is impressed with what he has seen thus far.
