Wenstrup visits Mt. Orab

Wenstrup
By Wayne Gates –
Congressman Brad Wenstrup was in Mt. Orab on Friday, August 5 to talk with constituents.
He visited the Country Inn Restaurant to hear what was on the minds of voters and also sat for an exclusive interview with the News Democrat.
“I’m hearing from people who are concerned about our country and are concerned about what will happen after the election,” Wenstrup said.
When asked about the recent troubles that GOP Presidential Candidate Donald Trump has had on the campaign trail, Wenstrup said, “When we had 17 candidates on the Republican side, I said that I would support the nominee of our party and I stand by that.  You could take any of those 17 people and I probably wouldn’t agree with everything they have to say and they wouldn’t agree with everything I have to say.”
He added, “I don’t think that Hillary Clinton is going to agree with the things we agree with as Republicans and conservatives as far as the direction of our country.  Doanald Trump is in agreement with our agenda.  That is a step in the right direction for me.”
Wenstrup said that house Republicans were all running their own races and trying to do it with a unified message.
“We in the house have put forth our agenda, starting long before who we knew who the candidate was going to be, of things we think are important and what we want to run on as members of the House of Representatives, as Republicans and as conservatives,” Wenstrup said.
He said that house republicans were trying to solve problems with task forces dedicated to specific issues.
“I participated in four task forces out of the six.  It involved fighting poverty, tax reform, the economy, health care, national defense, and the most important thing, which are the Article One powers of the Constitution which says that all legislation will come from a congress derived of a House of Representatives and a Senate,” Wenstrup said.
The congressman said that many believe that the executive branch has overstepped its authority.
“What we are seeing today are executive orders we have to sue over because the President doesn’t have the authority to legislate and we sue over that and have been winning,” Wenstrup said.
“We see a Department of Justice that decides what laws they want to enforce and not enforce, we see a Supreme Court changing laws rather than sending them back to Congress if people don’t like their interpretation and we see most of all regulators that have rule of law. That’s a big concern for the American people that there is rule of law coming from agencies and not from the Congress.”
Wenstrup said that between now and November, he planned on concentrating on his own reelection and his continued work on the armed services, veterans and intelligence committees in Congress.
