The VA issued $2,827,377 in bonuses to executives overlooking, and in some cases, fostering mismanagement and neglect at VA facilities. This money is better spent providing veterans with first-rate care they earned, and it is unconscionable to allow bonuses for those who failed our veterans.
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.

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.
