  • August Recess Update
    Posted in The Brady Briefing on August 12, 2019 | Preview rr

    Conroe, Tex. - As the first weeks of August recess pass by, I’m thrilled to be back in the Eighth Congressional District of Texas. There’s no substitute for being home, traveling across my district and meeting with the great folks that I have the honor of representing. August recess is all about returning back to the great state of Texas and hearing first-hand from my constituents about the issues that concern them the most. One thing that’s incredibly important to the success of Texans is passi... Read more

  • Preserving the Integrity of the House
    Posted in The Brady Briefing on July 15, 2019 | Preview rr

    Conroe, Tex. - For the first time in history, Democrats are circumventing the democratic process in the House of Representatives and are replacing the people’s voice with the voice of a chosen few. Their partisan lawsuit to force President Trump to release his private tax returns is dangerous – which is why I recently introduced a resolution to preserve the integrity of the House. This resolution would ensure that each and every Member of Congress has the opportunity to vote on authorization of ... Read more

  • A New IRS on the Way

    Conroe, Tex. - With nearly two and a half million miles spent commuting from my home in Texas to Congress, most airline flights are pretty routine for me. Not the one today. This one is special - the end of a long journey through Congress. Four years ago, House Republicans unveiled our Better Way Agenda - an ambitious plan to tackle six of the biggest challenges facing our country. As then-Chairman of the Ways & Means Committee, I was responsible for crafting a new pro-growth tax code, as well a... Read more

  • Medicare for All is dangerous

    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

  • Trump Immigration Plan Is Pro-American

    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? 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 ...
