I don’t see any justification for the federal government owning land, other than the Statue of Liberty and maybe a few parks, maybe a few refuges. But to just own land to do nothing with it I think is a disservice to the Constitution.
When you turn 18 in the United States, you should be automatically registered to vote. Ideally, this sensible reform would be a federal law affecting all 50 states, Washington, D.C., and American territories, but our federal government stopped being sensible a very long time ago.

We have over 500,000 illegal immigrants living in Arizona. And we simply cannot sustain it. It costs us a tremendous amount of money of course in health care, in education, and then, on top of it all, in incarceration. And the federal government doesn’t reimburse us on any of these things.
Medicaid is essentially bankrupt, Medicare is essentially bankrupt, why the heck would we give the federal government another entitlement program to manage?
I continue to vote against such spending increases, but sometimes I think some of my Republican colleagues forgot that we were sent here to shrink the federal government, not to grow it.

The way we’re really going to grow the economy is to invest in people, to invest in innovation, to have the federal government put money in the kind of research that will create the new high-technology, biotechnology industries that will create the millions of new jobs.
The federal government should only be providing services for emergencies. You and I, taxpayers, shouldn’t be paying for cell phones so someone can have a social life. I just don’t think it’s appropriate.
We’re losing jobs in our manufacturing base, and those families that are going to be out of work over the holidays, that is a very sad thing. That is more governmental dependency. That is a reduced tax revenue for the state and for the federal government.

I went to Washington, D.C, for the first time my senior year as part of Girls Nation, put on by the American Legion Auxiliary, which sends high school students to D.C. to form a pretend federal government. There was an energy about the city that made me feel like I just had to come back there.
The signers of the Declaration of Independence did not pledge their fortunes and sacred honor so the federal government could play ‘helicopter parent’ to a free people. They saw government as our shared project to secure liberty, doing a few big things and doing them well.

We’re facing a natural disaster in the middle of an economic disaster. The federal government has to balance its budget the way our families do.

Embryonic stem cell research is legal in America, and nothing in the administration‘s current policy affects that legality; 400 lines are currently being used to conduct embryonic stem cell research, both in the private sector and by the Federal Government.
The Federal Government is exploiting public fear to redefine the relationship between the rulers and the American people.
We can’t have – we can’t have a patchwork of 50 states developing their own immigration policy. I understand the frustration of people in Arizona. They want the federal government to step up and deal with this problem once and for all, and that’s what we want to do.

What is so remarkable about the success of affirmative action is that it has been accomplished despite the Justice Department and the policies of the federal government.

The taxpayer – that’s someone who works for the federal government but doesn’t have to take the civil service examination.

At the federal level, as a member of Congress, you have one vote out of 435, and in the Senate, it’s one out of 100. So, the ability to get some stuff done exists as a much larger opportunity at a local level than in the federal government.
The similarities are limited but real. They amount to a shared disgust with politics as usual in America. The Tea Party focuses on the federal government; Occupy Wall Street focuses on corporate America and its influence over the government.
We need to prioritize those expenditures of the federal government in A, B and C priorities… And I believe that on the C priority list are things like the Departments of Education and Energy, and those are the places where we should begin those defunding.
The people in Washington are getting rich with our money. Under President Barack Obama, the federal government swelled to record size, and it took more and more of our money to pay for it. Who benefitted? Not Missouri farmers or workers.

Climate change is not an excuse to give the federal government ever more power over private property and state resources.

It has become increasingly difficult for states or the federal government to apply the death penalty. But why even try? Nothing is accomplished, and while the chances of making a mistake are now diminished – DNA can prove guilt as well as innocence – life in prison is a worthy substitute.
I’ve experienced first-hand the wonderful work organizations like J Bar J do for young people in Central Oregon and I am encouraged that the federal government is taking an active role in the Cascade Youth and Family Center.

The problem is we have a Wall Street-to-Washington access of power that has controlled the political climate. The donor class feeds the political class who does the dance that the donor class wants. And the result is federal government keeps getting bigger.
There is no question that the federal government sometimes overdoes it in issuing rules and regulations.
A federal government with enough money to buy iPads for local gym teachers is not a federal government that has been cut to the bone.
The tenth amendment said the federal government is supposed to only have powers that were explicitly given in the Constitution. I think the federal government’s gone way beyond that. The Constitution never said that you could have a Federal Reserve that would have $2.8 trillion in assets. We’ve gotten out of control.
For the states that take the lead on reform – asset recycling, deregulation, service innovation – the Federal Government could step back, and allow greater flexibility in how we deliver our responsibilities.

The federal government has no business spending your hard-earned money on a project to monitor political speech on Twitter.
President Obama‘s reckless defense cuts that are hanging over our cloud, hanging over the horizon could put almost 44,000 jobs at stake right here in Pennsylvania. we are not going to let that happen. You know why? Because No. 1, national defense is the first priority of the federal government.
So you know, I think that the federal government, the Democrats, and President Obama are selling a lot of hope and change, but no delivery of any of those promises.
The cell phone companies add to the problem. Every one they give out, they get money for from the federal government. So they have an incentive to give as many away as possible. And that’s exactly what they’re doing, and they’re making a killing.
My position on immigration has been clear for a long time. I believe the federal government ought to do their job. You know, secure our borders. Come up with an immigration policy that Americans understand and people who want to come to this country understand.
In addition to higher pay, federal government employment is far more secure than private-sector employment.
But the federal government, our collective government, has responsibilities that none of these other levels of government can fulfill; and chief among these is national defense.

I believe the public’s confidence would be increased if the federal government took over the functions of airport security screening for all passengers.

When the federal government spends more each year than it collects in tax revenues, it has three choices: It can raise taxes, print money, or borrow money. While these actions may benefit politicians, all three options are bad for average Americans.
We are a nation of borders and – I mean, that is one of the main things that the federal government is in charge with, and that is protecting the citizens of the United States and our whole nation.
To suggest that immigration is the exclusive domain of the federal government, disallowing partnerships with local law enforcement, defies the will of Congress, not to mention reality. Numerous local jurisdictions have laws on the books dealing with immigration in a variety of ways.

If the federal government is so concerned with why people are deciding against having kids, maybe they should consider how little support and protection the middle class gets when it comes to being parents. Paid leave would be a good start, and increasing wages would also help.
We have become bound by a political straitjacket that frames every debate: Too much federal government. Yet our forefathers forged this system for us. The federal government can accomplish what the states, acting alone or even in concert, cannot.
I truly believe that we have the best health care system in the world. It’s not perfect, but this business of turning it over to the federal government to try to make it perfect is quite honestly asinine.

I was born in 1966, at the beginning of the Biafran-Nigerian Civil War, and the war ended after three years.

We are shrinking the size of the federal government as a percent of our economy from over 21 percent of the economy to 19 percent of the economy. At the same time, we’re growing the private economy.

At virtually any given time outside of one’s own home, an American citizen can reasonably assume his movements and actions are being monitored by something, by somebody, somewhere.
Once we secure our borders – and the federal government has not done a good job – then Congress, I believe, needs to take up the issue and look at how we try and identify those people that are here, that are national security risks to the United States.
Do you know who the real hypocrite is? It’s the federal government and the Justice Department. It’s a fraud; it’s a lie. They have no interest in the education of black children. They are only interested in the politics of it.
Besides the healthcare bill being unconstitutional and a great expansion of federal government, I think if it does not respect people’s individual religious views and makes groups or individuals do things that are contrary to their deeply held beliefs, there is going to be a visceral negative reaction.
It’s time to believe again in the potential of private enterprise set free from the shackles of over-bearing federal government.

Just because technological advances have made it easier for the federal government to collect information doesn’t mean that our privacy rights can or should be violated on the ground or in the air.
I have a responsibility as an elected governor to govern and when I say govern, that means to make sure that our citizens are safe and we need the federal government to step up and do their job. They need to secure our borders.
American citizens and communities should be free to choose where they would like to live and not be subject to federal neighborhood engineering at the behest of an overreaching federal government.
