    Conroe, Tex. - The federal government will cancel the health insurance plans of more than 600,000 workers and seniors in my 8th Congressional District of Texas if the dangerous Medicare for All proposal becomes law. Last week at an emotional congressional hearing led by the House Ways and Means Committee Democrats, it was revealed the socialized medicine scheme known as Medicare for All will dangerously cancel good, quality health care plans for millions of workers, children and the elderly. For... Read more

    Conroe, Tex. - The ‘Mueller Deniers” are at it again. Special Counsel Robert Mueller made a definitive statement about his report’s conclusion – no collusion, none, between Russia and the Trump campaign. When Mueller first released his report, I hoped Democrats would finally drop their obsessive rush to impeachment and instead try working with Republicans on solving issues important to the American people. However, their reaction to Mueller’s recent comments show they would seemingly chase a str... Read more

    I’ve been working hard to get a new free trade agreement with Canada and Mexico passed in Congress. In Texas, trade with Canada and Mexico supports 948,900 local jobs and totals $127 billion in exports, and the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) will help our state’s workers and economy thrive even more. President Trump’s recent move to lift tariffs on steel and aluminum is a victory, and with this crucial issue resolved, I hope my colleagues will come together to advance the USMCA. *... Read more

  • BRADY BRIEFING: April jobs report crushes expectations

    Joe Biden received a whopping four Pinocchio’s from The Washington Post for claiming that Republican tax cuts only went to corporations and the richest Americans. It’s more of the same Democratic narrative, peddling falsehoods about America’s booming economy. Released last week, the April jobs report crushed all expectations - 263,000 new jobs, the seventh straight month of wage growth, and the lowest unemployment level since 1969. How can Joe Biden and his party of economic deniers continue to ... Read more

  • The Facts Are On Our Side

    Tax Day has come and gone, and the truth is that the vast majority of American taxpayers have benefited from the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. The Tax Policy Center reported that 91 percent of middle-class tax payers received a tax cut. H&R block reported that taxes are down by an average of 24.9 percent with the average refund up 1.4 percent. Plus, biweekly paychecks went up by $50. The facts are on our side, but despite tax reductions in every state and DC, the question remains—why did most American’... Read more

  • Setting a Dangerous Precedent
    Posted in The Brady Briefing on April 8, 2019 | Preview rr

    Setting a Dangerous Precedent Since day one, Democrats in Congress have been rushing to impeachment. After Robert Mueller reported there was no collusion between Russia and President Trump’s campaign, they immediately jumped to their next fishing expedition – President Trump’s tax returns. The request from the Democratic Ways and Means Committee Chairman Richard Neal is an abuse of his authority. It could set a dangerous precedent that weaponizes our tax code and endangers privacy rights. If Con... Read more

  • What will Democrats do now?

    What will Democrats do now? After two years, 2,800 subpoenas, 1,000 search warrants and interviews, tens of millions of dollars, and unfettered freedom to follow every path, Special Counsel Robert Mueller reported there was no collusion between Russia and President Trump’s campaign. None. Zero. Nada. In fact, he concluded not a single American conspired or coordinated with Russia despite “multiple offers.” Turns out the entire accusation Democrats and the liberal media tried to desperately sell ...

  • New Priorities Alarming

    Priorities reveal everything. HR 1 is reserved each session of Congress by the majority party for the biggest change they champion for America. Last session, HR1 by House Republicans was reserved for the first major tax reform in more than three decades. President Trump signed the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act which jump-started the economy, lowered unemployment to historically good rates, and let families and local businesses keep more of what they earn. Under Speaker Nancy Pelosi, HR1 is dedicated to a ... Read more

    “Doesn’t she know how tax refunds work?”. That’s what I heard repeatedly from folks I visited this past week while traveling my nine-county congressional district. They were referencing a Democratic presidential candidate from California who – like others in her party and many media “experts” – shamelessly peddled the claim that smaller tax refunds means higher taxes. It was quickly debunked. The Washington Post called the claim “misleading and nonsensical.” My constituents here in Texas know: Y... Read more

    Democrats on the House Ways and Means Committee put their“attack President Trump at all costs”agenda on full display last week, holding a hearing focused on forcing the IRS to hand over the President’s tax returns. Let me be clear – this is not about whether or not the President should voluntarily release his tax returns. This is about an abuse of power by Congress. Our tax code should never be weaponized for a purely partisan attack on someone’s political enemies. This sets a very dangerous pr... Read more
