For the past two years I have proudly joined my colleauge Congresswoman Carolyn B. Maloney (D-NY) in leading an effort to generate funds for breast cancer research. This week I joined Congresswoman Maloney, Senator Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND), Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF) President Myra Biblowit, Acting Deputy Director of the U.S.
After the tragic event in Parkland last month, I immediately called the FBI’s Special Agent in Charge in Dallas to discuss the situation and we agreed to coordinate a meeting with local officials, law enforcement, and school leaders.
This week I was delighted to join my Texas colleagues on the House Floor to discuss just how tax reform has impacted the 32nd Congressional District of Texas. As North Texans opened their paychecks this month, 9 out of 10 saw an increase in their take home pay.
Last week our nation watched in horror as a deranged and unstable former student of Stoneman Douglas High School killed 17 innocent people. Tragedies like these should never happen especially in schools. No parent should ever have to fear sending their children off to school in the morning and no student or teacher should ever feel unsafe in a classroom.
Early this morning I voted to fund our troops, implement a two-year budget agreement, and keeps our government operational through March 23rd. This budget agreement begins to repair our military and frees our Armed Services from harmful spending caps and the devastating practice of our funding our troops with stopgap spending bills.
This week President Trump delivered his first State of the Union address. During his address we heard a resounding theme - the days of big government are over and we have entered a new chapter of freedom and opportunity.
This week I was delighted to spend time with North Texans across the 32nd Congressional District to learn how the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act has impacted their lives. It was amazing to hear the stories from small businesses, doctors, job creators, and families who can keep more of their hard-earned money.
Yesterday I joined my House colleagues in responsibly acting to fund our nation’s government, reauthorize CHIP funding for six years, delay onerous Obamacare taxes, and ensure our troops have funding. I am deeply disappointed in my Democrat colleagues for fabricating a false crisis and playing politics with our troops and children’s health care.
