Reps. Slaughter, Duncan, and Walz Introduce Bipartisan Legislation to Bring Transparency to Political Intelligence Industry
"I don't see how anyone could argue that political intelligence activity should be allowed to continue behind closed doors to the benefit of only a very few elites," Duncan said.

U.S. Rep. John J. Duncan Jr., R-Tenn., said he supports a limited number of air strikes against the terrorists who beheaded two American journalists, but he is opposed to the use of thousands of ground troops.
Congressman John J. Duncan Jr. has argued for years the U.S. Export-Import Bank should be abolished.
“There is already sufficient funds to do what needs to be done if the Obama administration would just enforce the law,” U.S. Rep. John J. Duncan Jr., R-Knoxville, said.
“If we don’t secure our borders, we won't have a country,” Duncan told reporters Friday. “We'll destroy America as we know it."
"This is an emergency situation ... it does not require more money, it requires immediate action with funds that are already available,” Duncan said.
"There is no way that our country can hold the hundreds of millions of people who would come here in a very short time if we simply opened our borders and let everyone in,” Duncan said.
"We’ve already proven we can’t solve all of the problems in Iraq, even if we go back in with thousands of troops, with many thousands of troops,” Duncan said in an interview. “The Iraqis are going to have to solve their own problems.”
