ALGOP Chairman Responds to Governor Bentley’s Decision to Refuse Syrian Refugees

Yesterday, Governor Bentley announced that he will not accept Syrian refugees relocating to Alabama. Alabama Republican Party Chairman Terry Lathan made the following statement regarding Governor Bentley’s decision: “Governor Bentley is making national news in his decision not to accept any relocation of Syrian refugees to Alabama after the tragedy in Paris. President Obama is intent on bringing 100,000 refugees into our nation with no process to check their security backgrounds.” “Americans are the most loving people on earth, however, we cannot put our safety aside in these trying times. We need to pray for the Syrians fleeing their nation and for the innocent, but at the same time our first obligation is to our nation’s safety.” “I commend Governor Bentley for making this bold move and putting the protection of Alabama families and citizens first during these trying times in our world.”

It is Time to Defund and Repeal the Affordable Health Care Law

We face a difficult path forward to the 2014 mid-term elections.  We, the Republican Party, with the help of the Tea Party, were successful in capturing the House of Representatives in 2010, but have been unable to make much progress in repealing The Affordable Health Care Act or as it more commonly known, “Obamacare”.  This law was passed using the Slaughter Rule.  Under this procedure, the House voted on a rule setting up debate.  The House then skipped a vote on the Senate passed version of Obamacare and moved directly to a vote on reconciliation amendments to that Senate passed bill.  Once the reconciliation passed, the House deemed the Senate bill to have passed the House without a direct vote.  It was then sent to the President for signature without a direct up-or-down vote on the bill by the House.  The Affordable Health Care Act is a law that the more »
