Many times over the course of President Obama’s second term, I have stood on the House floor and made an obvious but important observation. Our Founding Fathers got it right. They gave us a president and not a king. Knowing this, I have objected vigorously as this President pulls more and more unconstitutional powers to himself.

In July 2015, Garfield County was forced to declare a state of emergency based on rapidly declining school enrollment. Simply put, their schools are dying because families cannot stay in the county. And why can’t they stay? Because there are so few jobs capable of sustaining a family.

Washington D.C. has a funny habit of using an emergency as an excuse to spend more money while also growing the size and power of government. This often results in more bloated bureaucracy and wasted tax dollars. The President’s Zika request may be an example of this. He recently asked Congress for $1.9 billion to fight the Zika Virus. Yes, the Zika outbreak is a serious concern. But 1.9 billion dollars is a lot of money. His request is also far too broad, and could in fact allow him to direct money to programs and activities that have nothing to do with Zika.

I have the great honor of serving on the House Select Committee on Intelligence, a responsibility that requires that I spend a lot of time in very troubled and chaotic parts of the world. During these travels, I see U.S. military personnel serving under some of the most hostile and difficult circumstances that you can imagine.

As a member of the House Select Committee on Intelligence, I am reminded every day that we live in a dangerous world. It is violent and chaotic, and it’s becoming more so all the time. But among the many national security threats that we face, in no area are we more vulnerable, and do we face so great a destructive potential, than the cyber realm.

I was one of the Air Force’s B-1 pilot representatives for the verification of the START treaties with the former Soviet Union during my 14 years in the military. In those years I learned much about implementing a credible national-security policy.

The most valuable life lessons I learned at an early age came from growing up on a dairy farm in Cache Valley. There, my father taught me the value of hard work, education, and good citizenship. I also gained a love and respect for the animals we worked with daily. I still enjoy saddling up a horse for a ride in the mountains with my friends.

SALT LAKE CITY — Stephen Hawking has said that “intelligence is the ability to adapt to change.” Tuesday will be President Barack Obama’s seventh State of the Union speech to Congress, but it will be his first to a Congress controlled in both chambers by Republicans. What will he say?

This month not only marks the start of the new year, but it also represents the start of the new 114th Congress. The last few years have been a prime example of Washington Gridlock – which was frustrating for all of us, especially members of the House of Representatives who passed almost 400 bills that died on Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s desk. These were good bills, many of which had strong bipartisan support.
