Rep. Tom Price, who represents Northeast Cobb, spoke about the GOP Balanced Budget proposal during a House session late Tuesday afternoon.
Rep. Tom Price, a Republican who represents the 6th District of Georgia, took to the floor of the House of Representatives late Tuesday afternoon to support the GOP's proposed budget, and to clear up what he called misinformation. "Mr. Chairman, it is no wonder that folks are confused out there. I tell you, there is so much misinformation that is coming, and the fear mongering that is coming from the other side is truly remarkable. So let's try to set the record and the motive straight," Price began in his address. Check out the YouTube video of his remarks to hear him say a Democrat from Maryland was "absolutely wrong," and to correct a Democrat from Pennsylvania by telling her and the rest of the House, "We actually balance the budget …

The Northeast Cobb-area Congressman has been mentioned as a candidate to succeed retiring Saxby Chambliss.
Friday's announcement by U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss that he won't be running for a third term in 2014 has fueled further speculation about who might be vying for his seat. But even before the Georgia Republican said he was stepping down, U.S. Rep. Tom Price has been thought to be mulling a campaign. Price, a Roswell Republican who represents Northeast Cobb in the Sixth District of Georgia, hasn't made any formal public comment since Friday. The Washington website Politico quoted a Price spokesman Friday afternoon saying that the Congressman "is speaking with a number of folks from across the state of Georgia" as he weighs a possible bid for the office. The day before Chambliss' announcement, Price wouldn't comment to MSNBC's Chuck Todd …

Like many House Republicans, he did not agree with the compromise.
Wednesday, January 2
Conservative Rep. Tom Price (R-District 6) voted against the last-minute fiscal cliff deal passed by Congress over New Year's, according to govtrack.us. A real solution includes both revenue increases and spending reductions," Price recently said on CNN's "State of the Union." His district includes Northeast Cobb. Price isn't the only member of Congress - especially among the GOP - to believe the compromise was ill-fitted to the need and will only lead to more hard decisions soon. The deal raises taxes on individual incomes over $400,000 and over $450,00 for household incomes and a portion of estates more than $5 million. The compromise is said to allow Congress to have more time to work on government spending.

East Cobb-area Congressman says that controversial anti-piracy legislation is also causing "confusion" for small businesses and entrepreneurs.
Thursday, January 19, 2012
As Wikipedia and other websites observed a 24-hour blackout on Wednesday, Congressional phone lines and inboxes began lighting up and filling up. Members of the U.S. House and Senate got the message about controversial anti-piracy legislation that appears to be stalled for now. In a battle that's been framed as Hollywood v. Silicon Valley, support was fading on Wednesday for passage of the Stop Online Piracy Act and the Protect IP Act. That's because of intense pressure from Wikipedia, Google and other online companies and interest groups, which believe the bills will censor free speech on the Internet and harshly punish those who violate copyright infringement and other intellectual property and content laws. Rep. Tom Price (R-Roswell…

Marietta, East Cobb and Northeast Cobb would be largely unaffected by a new congressional redistricting plan.
The additional U.S. House seat awarded to Georgia could substantially affect the shape of two of the three Congressional districts covering Cobb County. They are the seats occupied by Rep. Tom Price (R-Roswell), who represents most of East Cobb and Northeast Cobb in his 6th District, and Rep. Phil Gingrey (R-Marietta), whose 11th District would get a major redrawing according to maps unveiled Monday. (See PDF attachments of current maps and proposals for the metro Atlanta area and state of Georgia for details.) As noted by the The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, not only would House Republicans hold on to their majority under the proposal, but part of the city of Atlanta would have GOP representation for the first time in many years. That'…
