Allen Statement On Trump Presidency

(AUGUSTA, GA)—The American people elected Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States. Rep. Rick Allen (R-Ga.-12) released the following statement in support:

“The American people have spoken—and they demanded change. The most powerful tool we have as Americans is our vote, and today voters chose to abandon big government, top-down Washington policies for less government, less regulations and a bottom-up approach,” said Rep. Allen.

“Like President-elect Trump, I, too, am a businessman. We both look at what works and what doesn’t—and if it doesn’t, then we change it. As we have all learned in the past eight years, this Administration doesn’t know how to do that, or worse yet—refuses to.

This President has stuck us with Obamacare, Dodd-Frank, the terrible Iran Deal and countless other irresponsible and reckless policies. This is why I think we need more businesses-minded people in Washington—and clearly, so does the rest of the country.

With new leadership in the White House and the House GOP’s “A Better Way” Agenda, which tackles six key issue areas—healthcare, national security, poverty and opportunity, jobs and the economy, tax reform and restoring the Constitution, I am hopeful that we can bring fiscal sanity and prosperity back to this country.

When I ran for Congress, I told you I wanted to shake up Washington. Electing Mr. Trump sent that same message loud and clear, and boy am I excited to work with our new President to jumpstart our economy, get America back to work, and restore America’s confidence in the future of this country.”

Allen Reelected to Serve Georgia’s 12th Congressional District

(AUGUSTA, GA)—Today, U.S. Representative Rick W. Allen (R-Ga-12) won reelection in Georgia’s 12th Congressional District, defeating Patricia Carpenter McCracken by 23 points, 61.6% to 38.4%. Rep. Allen released the following statement after being declared the winner:

“Robin and I are so honored that the people of Georgia’s 12th District have once again elected me, a small businessman from Augusta, to represent them in Washington. We are so grateful,” said Rep. Allen.

“In my short time in Congress, we have been able to get a lot done despite rigid political gridlock. As a member of the House Education and Workforce Committee, I worked hard to get the Every Student Succeeds Act passed, which is the largest shift of education to the local level in decades and works to make the Secretary of Education irrelevant by removing Washington from the classroom.

As a Freshman Member of Congress, I authored legislation that passed the House unanimously by voice vote to protect Americans from IRS abuse. I listened to the needs of my constituents and voted to balance the budget, voted to defund Planned Parenthood and investigate them for selling human body parts of unborn children, strengthened our immigration laws and protected our homeland, supported legislation to stop the overreaching hand of the government, and proudly voted to fully repeal Obamacare. The House is doing the People’s work but Congress still has work to do.

The House is working to get America back on track by establishing “A Better Way”– a vision and plan for a future that Americans can once again feel confident in. With the House GOP’s Better Way Agenda, tackling six key issue areas—healthcare, national security, poverty and opportunity, jobs and the economy, tax reform and restoring the Constitution, I am hopeful that we can restore fiscal sanity and prosperity in this country.

When I first ran for Congress, I had three goals: grow the economy, create jobs and reduce the scope and size of the federal government. I have kept my word and these goals will continue to guide my decision-making. Once again, the people of the 12th District have given me the greatest honor of my life. I am beyond thankful to have another opportunity to serve the people of Georgia’s 12th District.”

Restoring Fiscal Sanity in Washington

150916_RickAllen_Cuts_FBLink

When I first started a small construction business 40 years ago, I never could have dreamed the drastic increase in spending that our country is experiencing. It seems to me that all the Democrats want to do is spend, spend, spend, and refuse to fix the real problems with mandatory spending that will break the country if not addressed.

The other side is calling for more taxes, more spending, more money from our hardworking small business owners, more regulations… And unfortunately,more money from all of our pockets. When is enough for them?

That’s why — just like I said I would in my last campaign — I supported a Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution to ensure that our nation isn’t spending more than we take in.

I voted for a budget that balances in less than ten years — without raising taxes — and will put us once again in the black instead of the red.

I believe that being fiscally responsible is the only way to get our nation going back in the right direction, strengthen our economy, and preserve opportunities for future generations.

As a small businessman, I have signed both sides of a paycheck. I hear everyday about a family in need who somehow manages to sit down at the kitchen table and only spend what it takes to survive. That’s what Washington needs — a good dose of Georgia common sense. We need to get spending in Washington back on track. The futures of our children and grandchildren depend on it.
