It isn’t often you see a politician operating in Washington DC say something that goes against the common claim that Washington DC must fix everything. The power grabs on Capitol Hill and the White House happen all the time regardless of the party. Democrats may be better at it, but Republicans have been pushing for bigger government for a while.
There are a few notable exceptions. Representative Pete Sessions (R-TX) is one of them. The Congressman has been an advocate of federalism in which states have an equal say on most issues. It’s hard to wrest power from DC politicians, but thankfully some of them, such as Sessions, are cognizant of the Constitution’s separation of powers between federal and state governments.
“We have to allow people in the states to make their own decisions, to get government agencies out of the way and let local people make decisions about what’s best for them.”
Texans need to help keep America heading in the right direction by putting Pete Sessions on Capitol Hill where he belongs. This race is too important to let it slip through our fingers.
