Congressman Thomas Massey
Representative Kentucky 4th District
U.S. Representative Thomas Massie entered Congress in November 2012 after serving as Lewis County Judge Executive. He represents Kentucky’s 4th Congressional District which stretches across Northern Kentucky and 280 miles of the Ohio River.
U.S. Representative Massie attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he earned a Bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering and a Master’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering. During school, he invented a technology that enabled people to interact with computers using their sense of touch, and leveraged that technology to found SensAble Technologies, Inc., which raised over $32 million of venture capital, created 70 jobs, and obtained 29 patents. The hardware and software he developed is now used to design automobiles, jewelry, shoes, dental prosthetics, and even reconstructive implants for wounded soldiers.
In Congress, Thomas serves on three committees: the House Committee on Transportation & Infrastructure, the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and the Committee on Science, Space, and Technology.
The House Committee on Transportation & Infrastructure has jurisdiction over roads, bridges, mass transit, railroads, aviation, maritime and waterborne transit. Thomas’s selection to the Oversight and Government Reform Committee puts him in a position to hold the federal government accountable to taxpayers. Further, Rep. Massie's background from MIT and the high-tech business world makes him uniquely qualified to serve his state and country on the Science, Space, and Technology Committee.
Thomas lives on a cattle farm in Kentucky with his wife and high school sweetheart, Rhonda, and their four children.
He’s honored to be able to serve the citizens of Kentucky’s 4th District.

"So, too, we wrote numerous essays on why the civil war in Ukraine is none of Washington's damn business and that the return of Crimea to Russia was no big deal for many reasons.
Those included the fact that it had been part of Russia since Catherine the Great bought it for good gold money in 1783 in order to have a warm water naval port at Sevastopol; and that it had ended up as part of the Ukraine by sheer accident during a drunken celebration in 1956 when the new Soviet dictator, Nikita Khrushchev, deeded it to his Ukrainian compatriots on the Central Committee.
That is to say, Crimea was part of Russia 63 years before Washington "annexed" California and got its own naval port in San Diego!
At the same time, we further described in chapter and verse how the current bloody civil war in Ukraine was instigated by Washington's massive support for the putsch in Kiev in February 2014. The latter was absolutely an illegal intervention that overthrew a constitutionally elected President who chose to make an economic deal with Moscow rather than the West, as is absolutely the prerogative of any sovereign state.
No, we did not go so far as to praise Russia's thuggish, kleptomaniac ruler, Vlad Putin. But we didn't mind saying that he is clearly the most disciplined, shrewd and rational statesman on the world stage today, and self-evidently is no threat whatsoever to the safety and security of American citizens
