“Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others.
I do not add ‘within the limits of the law’ because law is often but the tyrant’s will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual.
*ALL UNCONSTITUTIONAL AND UNLAWFUL BURDENS ON THE TAXED PERSON WHO ARE WE THE PEOPLE!
Dear Ima, Today, the House came together in a bipartisan compromise on some of the most urgent matters facing our nation. We extended the debt ceiling to pay our nation’s bills, passed a continuing resolution to fund the government, and secured the first funding installment for Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. This is a testament to what Congress can accomplish when everyone—Democratic and Republican—works together for the good of the American people. Now, we must roll up our sleeves and get to work on the other pressing issues like passing the DREAM Act* and reauthorizing the FAA*, the Children’s Health Insurance Program*, and the Perkins Loan Program*. Today’s bipartisanship is something this country can use a lot more of and I am proud to have helped contribute to this win. Watch my full floor speech here: Sincerely, Louise M. Slaughter
