Please allow me to update you on this week’s happenings in Kentucky as I traveled throughout the state and met with constituents.
Where Were the Marines?
Earlier today, I released a statement regarding new information found pertaining to the Obama Administration’s mishandling of the terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, last month. Someone must be held accountable for this inaction. The American people and the families of those who were killed expect and deserve to know the truth behind the Administration’s complete inaction and failure to protect U.S. Citizens.

Also this week, I penned an op-ed in the Washington Times. The first and most pressing question remains: Where were the Marines during the brutal attack on our nation’s consulate? The President now says, “The buck stops here.” It’s time for him to prove it, and if he won’t, it is time for Congress to do its job and get to the bottom of it.

Rotary Club of Louisville
On Thursday, I spoke to a group of more than 250 people at luncheon held by the Rotary Club of Louisville. While there, I spoke on the importance of bringing our troops home while still protecting our embassies and ambassadors abroad, as well as the economic challenges our country is currently facing. I also want to take the time to congratulate the Rotary Club of Louisville for their 100-year anniversary. Read the Courier-Journal’s coverage of the event by click HERE.

Home Builders of Northern Kentucky Luncheon
Earlier today, I had the privilege to attend the Home Builders of Northern Kentucky Luncheon, in Erlanger, Ky. The room was filled with more than 30 members interested in the Defense of Property and Environment bill I am championing. The EPA currently holds developers hostage with onerous regulation and impedes business growth. Several associations in Northern Kentucky are now pledging their support for this initiative.

Overwhelming Size of Government
There is one common denominator with the crisis we see in Washington today: the overwhelming growth in the size of government. Our politicians have lost sight of the principle of liberty, which goes hand in hand with the idea of economic freedom and prosperity. If our country is to prosper again, the next four years must be completely different from what we’ve seen over the past three-and-a-half years. We have too much at stake to continue down the same path. Click HERE to read my op-ed in the New Hampshire Union Leader.
This past week, I appeared on The Willis Report with Gerri Willis on FOX Business. I also spoke with several radio stations across the country as well as those in Kentucky, including: WBGN’s Norm Haney, WKCX’s Eric Deters, WTVK’s Earl Owens, WKDZ’s Alan Watts, WKYX’s Greg Dunker, and WXMZ’s Jerry Wright.
