Look, it isn't easy being the President of the U.S. And no matter how great a speaker you are, it can't be easy to make a speech in front of both houses of Congress, the entire Supreme Court, most of Washington's elite and millions of Americans who weren't watching Kentucky vs. LSU at the same time.

United States House of Representatives member Chris Collins said he’s glad his first year in Congress is over, but he emphasized he’s optimistic about the future in Washington, D.C.

Collins, R-Clarence, represents the sprawling  27th District of New York, which includes all or parts of Livingston, Ontario, Niagara, Erie, Genesee, Orleans, Monroe and Wyoming counties.

He said 2013 in Washington was 12 months of bipartisan bickering.

“There’s was no agreement on anything,” he said.

“It’s an honor to join the Subcommittee on Space and I am grateful for the opportunity to work to develop policies that advance our nation’s space program,” said Congressman Collins. “Western New York is home to a growing number of companies that support our space program, and I look forward to using this assignment to champion that sector.

Dec 13, 2013 Press Release

Tonight I voted in favor of the congressional budget compromise that passed the House with strong bipartisan support. This agreement is far from perfect, but it does reduce our deficit by $23 billion and locks in discretionary spending at levels below what the House GOP budget called for.  In addition, the agreement cuts spending in a smart, targeted away and avoids the pain caused by the President’s sequester, especially for our brave men and women in the military.

Oct 16, 2013 Press Release
Tonight, the House voted to increase our national debt by over $300 billion without achieving a single spending cut. I could not, in good faith, vote in favor of this legislation which only adds billions to the credit card bill our children will be left to pay.

There is no excuse or defense for why the Administration has failed to pay military death benefits to deserving families since the partial government shutdown began. 
Oct 2, 2013 Press Release

“Tonight, the House continued to work and offer reasonable and commonsense solutions to the partial government shutdown by passing bills to fully fund the National Institute of Health for critical research and open all national parks and museums.

The American people should not be short changed because Washington can’t get its act together.

Unfortunately, Senate Democrats continue to slam the door on our efforts to reopen the government by refusing to talk to House Republicans and negotiate a responsible budget solution.
