Kansas congressman Mike Pompeo is planning to discuss the case of an alleged suicide bomb plot at Wichita's main airport when he visits the city.
Their constituents are against it, their party leaders in Congress are generally for it, and President Obama has declared it a moral imperative — leaving rank-and-file members to sort it all out and take a career-defining vote on whether to authorize military strikes on Syria.
President Obama has won backing for his use of military force in Syria from two GOP members of key House committees — including one who is running for a U.S. Senate seat in Arkansas next year.
I am a Republican who worked for President George W. Bush both when he was governor of Texas and when he was president, and I am now working to create jobs in renewable energy. The recent opinion column by Reps. Raul R. Labrador and Mike Pompeo ("Era of energy subsidies is over," Commentary, Monday) told only half the story.
The call for an end to all energy subsidies from Rep. Mike Pompeo, Kansas Republican, and Rep. Raul R. Labrador, Idaho Republican, could be a laudable goal if it treated all energy resources fairly and treated energy fairly relative to other sectors ("Era of energy subsidies is over," Commentary, Monday). Unfortunately, their proposed legislation doesn't work that way. It unfairly singles out the most promising source of new manufacturing jobs while protecting billions of dollars in incentives for other energy sources and all non-energy sectors. Honest reform of tax incentives must start with a level playing field. The Pompeo/Ladrador proposal fails to do that.

Kansas Congressman Mike Pompeo, also a Republican, said "it's time to build" the pipeline.
"I've been urging the administration to move forward on this project, and now that this long anticipated environmental review is complete, it's time," Pompeo said in a release.
