  • Our Country Needs Unity, Not Divisiveness
    Posted in The Brady Briefing on January 19, 2021 | Preview rr

    The attacks on the U.S. Capitol this month were devastating. And make no mistake – they were attacks. While I fully support the First Amendment and every American’s right to protest peacefully, these violent actions were unacceptable and un-American, and I implore all to remember that violence overshadows the message of justice. We as a nation are better than this. We as a nation must be better than this. Despite the assault that Wednesday, our democracy refused to be disrupted, and Congress vot... Read more

  • The Great American Comeback
    Posted in The Brady Briefing on November 3, 2020 | Preview rr

    Under President Trump, America saw the greatest economy in history. Wages were up, unemployment – especially for minorities and women – was at historic lows, manufacturing was back, and jobs and businesses that had previously fled overseas were returning to the U.S. The COVID-19 pandemic hit our economy hard, but thanks to the strong foundation of the pre-pandemic economy, the leadership of President Trump, and the work of Republicans in Congress, we’re already seeing record-breaking economic re...

  • No Time for Partisan Delay
    Posted in The Brady Briefing on August 10, 2020 | Preview rr

    While Democratic leaders use partisan delay tactics, the American people are suffering. Instead of spending three trillion dollars on things like marijuana banking, early release for criminals, and sending checks to illegal immigrants, we must work together on smart, targeted policies that help American businesses and workers. That’s why recently, President Trump took action to provide extra federal unemployment help – help that Speaker Pelosi continues to block – as well as to allow workers to ... Read more

  • BRADY BRIEFING: Tackling Injustice
    Posted in The Brady Briefing on June 15, 2020 | Preview rr

    Conroe, Tex. - How do we tackle injustice – racial, economic and other forms? How do we do more to heal our country? I believe that in order to enact real change, we need real solutions. We ought to come together – every party, everywhere – and not just address these issues, but prevent them going forward. Of course, building trust between law enforcement and our communities will not begin in Washington – that will start at home. Having a healthy, engaging, challenging dialogue is the first step...

  • The Economy Continues to Smash Expectations
    Posted in The Brady Briefing on December 9, 2019 | Preview rr

    Conroe, Tex. - The November Jobs report is out, and the U.S. economy continues to smash expectations. 266,000 jobs were added in November, and the unemployment rate remains at a 50-year low. Plus, the amount of jobs created in September and October were revised upward by 41,000. This is all part of the positive economic trend we’ve seen since the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Despite the struggling global economy, the U.S. labor market is stronger than ever. Since President Trump took of... Read more

  • Impeachment Has Bipartisan Opposition
    Posted in The Brady Briefing on November 4, 2019 | Preview rr

    Conroe, Tex. - With less than one year until the Presidential election, House Democrats are doing all they can to take power away from the American people – because they’ve admitted that if they don’t impeach President Trump, he will get re-elected. Above all, Americans believe in fairness and the right of due process when accused. Yet, from day one the Democrat’s impeachment inquiry has offered neither. Instead, it’s been a secret, partisan affair conducted exclusively behind closed doors in an... Read more

  • One Cure Lost is One Too Many
    Posted in The Brady Briefing on October 21, 2019 | Preview rr

    Conroe, Tex. - 300,000 Texans live with Alzheimer’s. My neighbor is struggling with Parkinson’s. Two of my friends died from ALS. What do these people all have in common? They are living, or lived, with heartbreaking diseases that have no cure – yet. With recent medical innovation and groundbreaking research, there is hope that one day, cures can be found for diseases like these. However, that won’t be the case if Speaker Pelosi’s new drug pricing plan is ever made into law. Most aptly called th... Read more

  • Democrats Create Constitutional Crisis for Political Gain
    Posted in The Brady Briefing on October 7, 2019 | Preview rr

    Conroe, Tex. - Has Washington ever felt more disconnected from the real world? The American people don’t support impeachment. In recent polls a majority of Americans – including Democrats and Independent voters –believe the main goal of the Democrats’ obsessive rush to impeachment is to “politically damage Donald Trump’s presidency and his reelection.” But Democrats have a clear message for the American people: You don’t matter. Our hatred for Donald Trump is more important than your desire for ... Read more

  • Let's keep the Energy Momentum Going
    Posted in The Brady Briefing on September 23, 2019 | Preview rr

    Conroe, Tex. - Houston is the energy capital of the world, and hundreds of thousands in the area are employed by the oil and gas industry. In the state of Texas alone, the industry employs 1.9 million people – over 12 percent of the state’s total workforce. Across the nation, the oil and gas industry is booming, with US crude oil production up 40 percent in just the last three years. We are experiencing an energy renaissance, and never before has the U.S. been so poised to take on the role of gl... Read more

  • Back in Session
    Posted in The Brady Briefing on September 9, 2019 | Preview rr

    Conroe, Tex. - After a long district work period, Congress is headed back to Washington for the fall legislative session. While there are many important policy priorities, one that should be at the forefront of all lawmaker’s agendas is passing the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement, or USMCA. Passing the USMCA is incredibly important because the ability to conduct free and open trade is the greatest economic freedom we possess as a nation. The ability to buy, sell, and compete across the glo... Read more
