GOP: States under attack by Obama administration

House Candidate Andy Tobin gives the Republican Party's Weekly Remarks

Hello, I'm Andy Tobin. I serve as Speaker of the Arizona House, and I'm the Republican candidate for Arizona's First Congressional District.

Before I begin: we have had terrible flooding in our state this week. At least two Arizonans died. Our hearts go out to their families, and our thanks go to the first responders. Their service inspires us always.

(Scroll down for full video of these remarks.)

I'm running for Congress for a simple reason: our state is under attack from the federal government. Day after day, the powers-that-be in Washington try to bury us in more regulations and more havoc. This has to stop. Not just here, but everywhere people are working harder only to have Washington take more of their money and more of their freedom.

How do we restore the balance of power for hardworking taxpayers?



Well, one thing we can do is go after over-regulation. Here in rural Arizona, the EPA's mandates threaten to shut down the Navajo Generating Station, a coal-powered plant that is vital to our state's economy. These mandates will mean higher water and electricity prices for Arizona residents. They also threaten the viability of this plant, putting hundreds of jobs in jeopardy. Instead of perpetrating a war on coal, Washington should be protecting coal, protecting these jobs, and supporting American energy.

Second, we need to repeal ObamaCare. I run a small business involved in employee benefits, so I've seen firsthand the rate increases, and the way this law is crushing businesses and pushing people into part-time work. It's also costing our seniors money they don't have and doctors they've relied on for years. Let's start over and focus on ideas that lower costs and put the patient back in charge.

Third, we need to get ourselves out of all this debt. It's a drag on our economy and investment, and it's not something we should be passing on to our kids. Not too long ago, our state was one of many caught in the grip of recession and a budget crisis.

Working together, we turned things around. Cut government by 25 percent. Balanced the state's budget. And passed the largest tax cuts in our state's history, saving taxpayers millions of dollars. Now we're moving in the right direction, building a better future for our children and their children.

And you know how we got it done? By finding common ground, making the tough choices, and recognizing that Arizona would only recover if we all recover.

That's why the gridlock in Washington is so disappointing. You have Republicans making a good-faith effort, bringing real ideas to the table to help our economy, but Senate Democrats won't give them a vote. They didn't even pass their own bill to help us deal with the crisis at our border. They're more worried about losing their Senate majority than the concerns of the American people.

I've dedicated my life to serving others. It was instilled in me as the son of a police officer. To get America back on track, we need to put the people first, be their voice, especially for parts of the country like rural Arizona that have been forgotten by Washington. Thank you for listening. May God bless Arizona and the United States of America. ####

Obama: Today's terrorist threat is 'more diffuse'

President Obama's weekly remarks

As Commander in Chief, my highest priority is the security of the American people. And I've made it clear that those who threaten the United States will find no safe haven. Thanks to our military and counter-terrorism professionals, we took out Osama bin Laden, much of al Qaeda's leadership in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and leaders of al Qaeda affiliates in Yemen and Somalia. We've prevented terrorist attacks, saved American lives and made our homeland more secure.

Today, the terrorist threat is more diffuse, from al Qaeda affiliates and other extremists--like ISIL in Syria and Iraq. As I said this week, our intelligence community has not yet detected specific ISIL plots against our homeland. But its leaders have repeatedly threatened the United States.

And, if left unchecked, these terrorists could pose a growing threat beyond the Middle East, including to the United States. So we're staying vigilant. And we're moving ahead with our strategy to degrade and ultimately destroy this terrorist organization.

To meet a threat like this, we have to be smart. We have to use our power wisely. And we have to avoid the mistakes of the past. American military power is unmatched, but this can't be America's fight alone. And the best way to defeat a group like ISIL isn't by sending large numbers of American combat forces to wage a ground war in the heart of the Middle East. That wouldn't serve our interests. In fact, it would only risk fueling extremism even more.

What's needed now is a targeted, relentless counter-terrorism campaign against ISIL that combines American air power, contributions from allies and partners, and more support to forces that are fighting these terrorists on the ground. And that's exactly what we're doing.

We're moving ahead with our campaign of airstrikes against these terrorists, and we're prepared to take action against ISIL in Syria as well. The additional American forces I've ordered to Iraq will help Iraqi and Kurdish forces with the training, intelligence and equipment they need to take the fight to these terrorists on the ground.

We're working with Congress to expand our efforts to train and equip the Syrian opposition. We'll continue to strengthen our defenses here at home. And we'll keep providing the humanitarian relief to help Iraqi civilians who have been driven from their homes and who remain in extreme danger.

Because we're leading the right way, more..............

California Club: A Triple-Decker 56% Labor Cost Jump

Diners don't want sandwich-makers sneezing on their turkey, so there's an obvious logic to California's new law mandating three paid days of sick leave. But as California piles up the costs of employing low-wage workers with paid sick leave and a higher minimum wage, employers also face another large cost spike via ObamaCare. From June 2014 -- just before California bumped up the minimum wage from $8 to $9 an hour -- to January 2016
