    Posted in Weekly Columns and Op-Eds on September 27, 2016 | Preview rr

    Millions of people have watched the Facebook video posted by the White House of a six-year-old boy, named Alex, from Scarsdale, New York, requesting to help give a home to a Syrian refugee. “Alex told me that he wanted Omran to come live with him and his family. He wanted to share his bike, and teach him how to ride. He said his little sister would collect butterflies for him. “We can all play together,” he wrote. “We will give him a family and he will be our brother.” Let me first say that Alex... Read more

    Don't allow bad policy in lame duck By: Congressman Paul Gosar June 17, 2016 Published in the Washington Examiner Back in 1932, Will Rogers famously described the lame duck period in Congress to the New York Times: “It’s like where some fellows worked for you and their work wasn’t satisfactory and you let ’em out, but after you fired ’em, you let 'em stay long enough so they could burn your house down.” Nothing has changed and the American public should be extremely leery of a lame duck followi...

  • The Government Wants to Join You in Bed — the Tanning Bed
    Posted in Weekly Columns and Op-Eds on March 17, 2016 | Preview rr

    Paul Gosar Member of Congress March 17, 2016 Published on Breitbart News We’ve been watching for some time how one federal agency or another wants to take away your freedom of choice. Usually your freedom is taken from you under the guise of “public safety,” but in reality most of the time it is simply someone who wants to stick their nose in your business because they don’t like what you may like. While veterans go without care, illegals pour through the border and federal agencies continue to ... Read more

    Ending Instant Amnesty for Cubans By: Rep. Paul Gosar February 12, 2016 Published in Conservative Review As a Congressman representing the state of Arizona, I am never surprised that illegal immigration is the hottest topic of discussion at my town halls meetings. With over 350 miles of shared border with Mexico, Arizona is second only to Texas in total miles of border separating us from our southern neighbor. Yet the people in my district who most adamantly call for stronger enforcement of our... Read more

  • Why I’m Voting Against Massive Omnibus Spending Bill
    Posted in Weekly Columns and Op-Eds on December 17, 2015 | Preview rr

    Paul Gosar U.S. Congressman December 17, 2015 Once again I find myself shaking my head at the wasteful spending in DC and a flawed process that drops thousands of pages of text on us with 48 hours to “read” and understand. I wish I could put all the blame on big spending Democrats, liberals who seek to bankrupt our nation and others who are ignorant of the fiscal crisis within which we live. But I can’t. Congress is controlled by Republicans. So, this massive and wasteful spending bill is on Rep... Read more

  • Stop HUD’s Takeover of Local Zoning

    Stop HUD’s Takeover of Local Zoning by ROBERT ASTORINO AND REP. PAUL GOSAR December 7, 2015 Published in Breitbart News The founders of our nation understood that successful governance in a democracy depends on the consent of the governed. In return for the people’s consent, they set limits on government, divided authority, and established checks and balances to control the use of power. This system, which has served our nation well for more than 200 years, is now being put at risk by the rise o... Read more

  • Fair Isn’t Fair
    Posted in Weekly Columns and Op-Eds on November 5, 2015 | Preview rr

    Fair Isn’t Fair Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S November 5, 2015 Patrick Henry—an ardent supporter of a smaller, local government—once said, “I like the dreams of the future better than the history of the past.” Something tells me that he would not utter such a statement were he alive in 2014. Henry and many other Founding Fathers are likely rolling over in their graves as a result of the incessant intrusion into local affairs by our current president and the federal government. More recently, ... Read more

    Iran “Deal” Will Ensure War in Middle East Rep. Paul Gosar September 15, 2015 Published in the Prescott Daily Courier Twice over the past month, a very small group of pacifists have called on my office in Prescott to decry war with Iran. The goal of these activists is for me and other members of Congress to support the deal President Obama has reached with the rogue Iranian regime. Both times the Courier has featured their message. Let me reply. I will not support that agreement, and I will cont... Read more

The Arizona Republic asked Representative Paul Gosar, who has introduced a bill to strip Mexican gray wolves of their Endangered Species Act protections, and Eva Sargent, Defenders of Wildlife’s Southwest program director, to weigh in on this question.

    Don't Blame GOP: Dems Want DHS Shutdown By: Rep. Paul Gosar Feb. 24, 2015 Published in the Arizona Republic Last week, federal judge Andrew Hanen issued an injunction barring President Obama and his administration from implementing “any and all aspects or phases of” their November 2014 amnesty order. The president initially said he was going to comply with the federal court’s ruling. But then, almost in the same breath, declared he will ignore Hansen’s orders and defiantly stated, “We are doing ... Read more
