  • 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

  • Protecting Religious Liberty
    Posted in The Brady Briefing on August 26, 2019 | Preview rr

    Conroe, Tex. - Protecting religious liberty is one of the most important duties we have in Congress. Our right to it is laid out in the first amendment, and it is a right that those who represent you should never forget to defend. I’m dedicated to protecting the religious freedom of those I represent in the Eighth Congressional District of Texas, and Americans across the country. That’s why I’m supporting measures in Congress and working with the Administration to ensure that each and every Amer... Read more

  • The Path to Fiscal Solvency

    Conroe, Tex. - We all know Washington doesn’t have a revenue problem, it has a spending problem. Even with revenues increasing due to tax reform and our booming economy, our government spending is growing at an unsustainable pace. Congress must act, and the best way to do so is by committing to long-term federal spending caps. That’s why I introduced new legislation to put America’s budget back on the path to sustainable financial solvency. The Maximizing America’s Prosperity, or MAP Act, is a s... Read more

  • 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
    Posted in The Brady Briefing on July 1, 2019 | Preview rr

    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

    Tags: Economic Recovery, Your Taxes

    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
