Washington, D.C. – A leading national term limits group is calling out Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-2) for breaking a promise he made to fight for a congressional term limits amendment.  U.S. Term Limits (USTL) highlighted that Rep. Mullin signed a pledge in 2011 vowing to co-sponsor legislation for congressional term limits, then broke his word by never sponsoring the bill. The broken commitment is especially relevant as debate in Oklahoma centers on […]

  The 2012 campaign for 2nd district Congressman was very competitive and very spiritual. Two professed Christian businessmen, George Faught & Markwayne Mullin were seeking an open seat in congress. Mullin sought every advantage he could leverage and he believed that a self-imposed term limit of 6 years was a way to assure the voters that he would not become a typical Washington power broker.  Reporter Chris Casteel […]

Congressman Markwayne Mullin of Oklahoma’s 2nd District has been in hot water over the past week for comments he made at a recent town hall in Jay, saying gems like…

“You say you pay for me to do this. Bullcrap. I pay for myself. I paid enough taxes before I got there and continue to through my company to pay my own salary. This is a service. No one here pays me to go.”

and 

“I’m just saying this is a service for me, not a career, and I thank God this is not how I make my living.”

and 

“I’m paying more taxes inside my company and personally than I’ll ever receive from Congress.”

His comments have been major national news, with stories running on the Drudge Report, TheBlaze, The Washington Times, TheHill, Politico, FoxNews, Conservative Review, and many other publications and news sites.


Stopping abortion is not ‘silly’

State Sen. Ervin Yen, R-Oklahoma City, thinks a law protecting unborn babies is “silly” and not worth consideration by the Oklahoma Legislature.

Yen, who says he is “pro-life” but he really isn’t, wouldn’t matter much except that he is chairman of the Senate Committee on Health and Human Services. As chairman, he is in a powerful position to kill pro-life legislation.

Yen just killed House Bill 1549, the “Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act of 2017,” which would ban abortion for unborn babies diagnosed with Down syndrome or other genetic disorders.

The bill passed the House by a 67-16 vote but Yen won’t send it to a floor vote in the Senate.

Amid continued budget issues, State Superintendent Joy Hofmeister announced earlier this week that the education department would not be allocating the $50,000 needed to hold this year’s Oklahoma State Science and Engineering Fair.

Hofmeister explained to KFOR: “It was due to the budget cuts we had last year. There was a loss of $38 million to that fund and that line item really required deep cuts and decisions.”

However, according to a press release from State Rep. Pat Ownbey (R-Ardmore), it looks like the private sector has rescued the science fair.
