As someone who has seen war first hand, and as a father of three young adults, it was my hope that we could have resolved this conflict and disarmed Saddam Hussein without war. However, this was not the case.
Our government has made a number of promises to the men and women who served in our nation’s armed forces. Sadly, these promises of health care, education and other benefits have existed more in rhetoric than in reality. Allen Boyd Read more at http://
America’s fighting men and women sacrifice much to ensure that our great nation stays free. We owe a debt of gratitude to the soldiers that have paid the ultimate price for this cause, as well as for those who are blessed enough to return from the battlefield unscathed. Allen Boyd

Political campaigns 1996-2008 Boyd entered the 1996 Democratic primary for the 2nd in 1996, after three-term Democratic incumbent Pete Peterson announced his retirement. He led a three-way Democratic primary with 48 percent of the vote, a few thousand votes short of outright victory. He then won the runoff with 64 percent of the vote and easily won the election in November. He was reelected with no major-party opposition in 1998 and defeated an underfunded Republican in 2000. In 2002, however, the Republican-controlled state legislature significantly altered Boyd’s district. Part of…read more
In April 2010, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill resulted from an explosion on a drilling platform, killing 11 workers and leaking thousands of barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico. On May 5, 2010, Boyd introduced legislation in the U.S. House of Representatives that would raise the liability cap on economic damages in oil spills from $75 million to $10 billion. The legislation would alter the Oil Pollution Act of 1990, which was passed after the 1989 Exxon Valdez spill and requires companies to pay for all cleanup costs…read more
On Sep 25, 2001, Boyd voted for HR 2586, an amendment to set up a task force on counter-terrorism and drug interdiction and allow military personnel to help patrol U.S. borders. Voted on Jun 10, 2008 for the Mérida Initiative to Combat Illicit Narcotics and Reduce Organized Crime Authorization Act, providing funding for Mexico to spend on drug prohibition related contracts. Opponents at the time complained this would increase the availability of military trained hit men to the drug cartels.

Since my election to Congress, I have worked to put our nation’s fiscal house in order. My support for the Balanced Budget Act of 1997 resulted in a balanced budget for the first time in almost thirty years. Now, because of strong economic growth and continued fiscal discipline we have a historic opportunity to begin paying down our nation’s $3.6 trillion publicly held debt. In 2000, the federal government will pay over $200 billion in interest payments on the federal debt. This money does not provide one new fighter for…read more
