Congressman Jeff Duncan (R-SC 3)
Elected in 2010, Congressman Jeff Duncan has been nothing but a true Tea Party, Liberty-minded Conservative in Congress. Unlike many of his colleagues, Rep. Duncan has been fighting against reckless spending, encroachments on our liberties, and for defunding and repealing Obamacare.
The Washington Post wrote about Rep. Jeff Duncan when he was a freshman:
— By the summer many freshmen urged the strongest possible action on the debt ceiling showdown, demanding the inclusion of a constitutional amendment requiring a strict balanced budget in exchange for allowing the Treasury to borrow trillions of dollars more to fund the government. Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-S.C.), a freshman who Boehner sometimes called “Hardhead” because he so regularly opposed leadership, helped lead some conservatives to watch the Democratic-run Senate’s vote to reject the balanced budget amendment. First, he arranged a meeting in the Capitol Rotunda with his conservative hero, Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), who counseled the House members on Senate decorum for House members. Then DeMint told them to deliver a message: “You’ve gotta tell Boehner to cut the bulls—. When we go over to the White House like children …
Rep. Jeff Duncan has consistently voted against leadership’s plans. He opposed the Ryan-Murray Budget, the Omnibus Bill FY 2014, the Budget Control Act of 2011, the Fiscal Cliff Deal, the Sandy Funding Bills, the Farm Bill Conference Report, the Flood Insurance Anti-Reform Bill, and the list goes on. He voted against the 4-year extension of the Patriot Act and supported the Amash NSA limitation amendment.
Rep. Duncan also recently spoke about whether Speaker Boehner would get another term as speaker:
“My sense at the present time is that the Speaker doesn’t have the support of the conference,” says South Carolina Republican Rep. Jeff Duncan about John Boehner. Another member of the House privately estimates that 40 Republican lawmakers would vote against Boehner on the floor and says “I’ve seen a running total.”
Rep. Jeff Duncan speaks bluntly about conservative principles and he is unashamed to fight for them. He does not go and hide, but is on the front lines every day FIGHTING to restore the America that we want for our children and the next generation.
It is LLPH’s honor to name Rep. Jeff Duncan a Liberty Commander in the Liberty Congress and also re-endorse him for the 2014 midterm elections.
