Representing the Golden State of California,
Congressman Darrell Issa is Featured on AJC Radio’s Spotlight on Capitol
Hill, Where A Just Cause Puts the Spotlight on Members of Congress and
Their Legislation

Spotlight on Capitol Hill Gives Listeners an
In-Depth Look at Initiatives and the Legislative Agendas of Our Elected
Officials in Washington, D.C., Says Advocacy Group, A Just Cause

DENVER, CO–(Marketwired – October 29, 2015) – Advocacy
group, A Just Cause, announces today that the Thursday, October 29,
2015 segment of AJC Radio’s, “Spotlight on Capitol Hill” will be shining
the spotlight on Congressman Darrell Issa. (www.AJCRadio.com, 8-10 PM ET).
“Everyone
on Capitol Hill is talking about AJC Radio’s segment, Spotlight on
Capitol Hill,” says Lamont Banks, A Just Cause Executive Director.
“We’ve done spotlights on members of Congress in the House and Senate to
include: Congressman Charles Rangel (D – NY), Senator Charles Schumer (D – NY), Congressman Cedric Richmond (D – LA), Congressman Hakeem Jeffries (D – NY), Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (D – CA), Senator Orrin Hatch (R – UT), Congresswoman Judy Chu (D – CA), Congressman GK Butterfield (D – NC), Senator Patrick Leahy (D – VT), Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), Congressman Jim Sensenbrenner (R – WI), Senator Mike Lee (R – UT), Congressman Henry C. “Hank” Johnson Jr.
(D – GA),” adds Banks. “America is literally bombarded with negative
information spewed out by the media on a daily basis. Many only hear
about a member of Congress who’s at the center of a scandal, but not on
AJC Radio. We won’t leave our listeners wondering, what on earth are
they doing in Washington? We’re here to let America know about the good
things our leaders are fighting for, not only for their state and
district, but for America as a whole,” concludes Banks.
“We’ve
met with and interviewed other notable representatives that stir things
up in Washington D.C., but are not currently serving in Congress as
well. We invite everyone to listen in as AJC Radio pays tribute to our
elected officials and their many accomplishments during their public
service. Spotlight on Capitol Hill gets to the heart of the issues our
legislators are concerned about, as we share their views on the current
condition of, and future plans for, our country. AJC Radio hosts look
forward to recognizing Congressman Darrell Issa’s pursuit of Government
Accountability, Financial Reform, and Education to name a few,” says
Lisa Stewart, A Just Cause.
Congressman Darrell Issa
and his wife Kathy live in Vista, CA. “They have one son, William, and
celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary in 2010. As a senior in high
school, Issa enlisted in the United States Army. Through his Army
service, he received an ROTC scholarship and graduated with a degree in
business from Sienna Heights University in Adrian, Michigan. Upon
graduation, Issa was commissioned as an Army officer, and ultimately
obtained the rank of captain. He completed his active-duty military
service in 1980 and turned his interests to the private sector.”
“As
a Congressman and leader in California grassroots politics, Issa has
championed the cause of smart, efficient government, and has pushed
legislation to balance the federal budget and promote transparency
across the federal bureaucracy… In 2008. Issa stood by his instincts
as a businessman and opposed giving a blank-check bailout to Wall Street
— he voted against all bailouts during the financial crisis. As a
fiscal conservative committed firmly to low taxes and free markets, Issa
has opposed the rise of out-of-control government spending and fought
tirelessly for the responsible, transparent use of taxpayer dollars.” (http://issa.house.gov/about/about-darrell).
“The
“middle class” and poor of our society continually absorb the impact of
this country’s injustices, and suffer the greatest burden and loss. In
this regard, Congressman Issa takes a stand and holds strong to ideals
that better serve the American people. He is concerned about the future
of our country and the problems impacting the American people, and our
spotlight on Congressman Issa is sure to grab our listener’s attention,”
suggests Banks.
As for
Technology and Commerce, the Congressman said, “America is built on
freedom and innovation. Today, technology and the Internet have impacted
the American economy by transforming ideas into jobs and opportunities
into success. As a Congressman, one of my top priorities is to promote
greater growth and innovation across America to secure and strengthen
our technology sector.” (http://issa.house.gov/the-issues/technology).
Congressman
Issa said the following concerning Government Accountability,
“Americans have a right to know that the money Washington takes from
them is well spent, that the government they fund is efficient,
effective, and really at work for them. My job as Chairman of the House
Oversight and Government Reform Committee is to help Americans secure
these rights. Our solemn responsibility is to hold government
accountable to you, the taxpayers, because you have a right to know what
you’re getting from the government. Oversight Committee members and I
will work tirelessly, in partnership with citizen-watchdogs, to bring
light to the hidden parts of government and reform the federal
bureaucracy so that it better serves the American people.” (http://issa.house.gov/the-issues/government-oversight).
Congressman
Issa sums up his views on education as follows: “Decisions on education
should lie with our parents, teachers and communities – not faceless
and unaccountable Washington bureaucrats. Parents are best equipped to
make choices for their children’s education. The ability to choose
between a public and private education is a demonstration of the
freedoms our country affords to all. It is in our country’s best
interest to promote parental choice and encourage involvement in their
children’s education. Additionally, I have supported legislation to
increase state flexibility in complying with federal education rules so
teachers and schools spend fewer resources complying with mandates and
more time teaching.” (http://issa.house.gov/the-issues/education).
Please
join in on the discussion as AJC Radio hosts delve deeper into the
initiatives of Congressman Darrell Issa and his efforts to pass
legislation to defend Small Business & Jobs, Financial Reform and
Taxes, Defense and Veterans, Technology and Commerce, Energy and
Environment, Homeland Security, Education, Health Care, and Housing. “We
do everything within our power to share as much information as possible
about the members of Congress even though we may not have the
opportunity to always bring our listeners a live one-on-one interview,”
concludes Banks.
