William M. (Mac) Thornberry National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2021

Floor Speech

Date: July 20, 2020
Location: Washington, DC

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. MASSIE. Madam Speaker, I rise today in opposition to the Langevin national cyber director amendment, which would expand an already bloated administrative state by creating a new position within the White House, basically, a resident lobbyist for big tech vendors and a legion of 75 unaccountable career government bureaucrats. This new department is like a self-licking ice cream cone, paid for by taxpayers and accountable to virtually no one.

The President opposes this new position, as should anyone who believes that laws should be written by elected Congressmen and carried out by an elected President.

Madam Speaker, I urge a ``no'' vote on this amendment.

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. MASSIE. Madam Speaker, on that I demand the yeas and nays.
