The Congressional Art Competition is a wonderful opportunity for young artists to showcase their talent. I encourage all high school students in the Twelfth Congressional District to submit their best work, and look forward to hanging the winning piece for all to appreciate in the Capitol building.
The House passed legislation that repeals the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare. After we were lied to about the real costs of this law, Congress is intent on finding a better way forward that works for every American.
A bill I introduced will give more than 16 million seniors enrolled in Medicare Advantage the freedom to switch plans if their current coverage doesn't meet their needs. In today’s ever changing health care environment, giving seniors the ability to test-drive their plans and make changes is common-sense.
The House passed important legislation to fulfill our promise to the American people to responsibly fund our Homeland Security Department while also stopping President Obama's unconstitutional immigration actions.
The principle of my provision simple--if bureaucrats implement rules that harm Americans' jobs or wages, they must take responsibility for it.
America's New Congress has been sworn in. First order of business in the House was giving American workers and veterans relief from harmful provisions in the Affordable Care Act.
I spoke on the House Floor as the proud cosponsor of legislation to repeal the Obamacare tax on medical devices. This $30 billion tax is forcing companies in Pennsylvania to reduce research into better technologies that can lower the cost of care and put off hiring new employees.
As public servants we must always remember that fundamental principle that we are the employees and the people are the boss. Working in public service is a serious responsibility and a tremendous honor and it comes with a trust that must not be abused.
