Make America a Respected Global Leader Again
- Protect America from international threats and instability through revived relationships with long-standing allies, a renewed commitment to national security, and proactive, strategic diplomacy.
- Develop a consistent, forward-leaning strategy of global engagement to expand foreign markets for American goods and services, and secure vital resources to drive American industry.
Crossroads GPS supports:
H.R.4966, the Sequester Replacement Act of 2012, to ensure a more efficient government and to protect our national defense.
The ongoing efforts by the Chairman of the House Ways & Means Committee to reform our international economic arrangements, including our tax code, in order to ensure global competitiveness.
S. 1595, the Solidarity with Israel Act.
S. 2101, the Iran Sanctions, Accountability, and Human Rights Act.
All legislative efforts to ensure that a grant of Permanent Normal Trade Relations status to Russia is contingent upon a greater commitment to human rights, for example through S. 1039 and H.R. 4405, the Sergei Magnitsky Rule of Law Accountability Act.
Crossroads GPS opposes:
H.R. 12, the American Jobs Act of 2011, President Obama’s latest ploy to raise taxes, increase stimulus spending, and add to the regulatory burdens on the nation’s employers. All of these efforts will make the nation weaker domestically and less competitive internationally.
President Obama’s FY 2013 Budget, which would raise taxes, increase spending, and do nothing to meaningfully address our $15.7 trillion debt, all of which threatens our long-term fiscal standing and ability to protect our nation’s interests internationally.
H.R. 29, a bill to withdraw the United States from the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), thereby injuring our relationships with our neighbors and threatening the jobs of American workers.
Oversight and Accountability
Crossroads GPS strongly supports efforts in Congress to provide appropriate oversight in the area of foreign affairs on matters of national security, diplomacy, and trade relations.
