  • President Trump is Right on Immigration
    Posted in The Brady Briefing on July 2, 2018 | Preview rr

    By: U.S. Congressman Kevin Brady Last week, when President Trump asked House Republicans to pass a bill that would turn the four pillars of his conservative immigration plan into law, I said yes. I voted for a bill that provided almost $25 billion for the construction of the wall on our southern border. The bill ended the visa lottery program and severely limited chain migration to just spouses and minor children. It also fairly resolved the DACA situation and reversed the old policy that requir...

  • The Congressional Baseball Game Shooting - One Year Later
    Posted in The Brady Briefing on June 18, 2018 | Preview rr

    By: U.S. Congressman Kevin Brady A little over one year ago, I was in the hospital standing by the bedside of one of my closest friends and roommate in Washington, Louisiana Congressman and Majority Whip, Steve Scalise. A couple of hours earlier a gunman—bent on murder—had taken aim at members of the Republican baseball team who were practicing for the annual Congressional Baseball Game for Charity, a century-old bipartisan tradition. Steve was one of his victims, having been shot in the hip. Th... Read more

  • Jobs, Jobs, Jobs
    Posted in The Brady Briefing on June 4, 2018 | Preview rr

    By: U.S. Congressman Kevin Brady The Department of Labor issued a report last week that the unemployment rate dropped to 3.8 percent, the lowest it’s been in 18 years. With almost one million jobs created since the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act was signed into law, there’s no question that tax cuts are having a positive impact on Main Street and American families. But despite record low unemployment rates, there are still millions of Americans on the sidelines. The Ways and Means Committee, which I lead... Read more

  • Republicans are Working to Renew the American Dream
    Posted in The Brady Briefing on May 22, 2018 | Preview rr

    By: U.S. Congressman Kevin Brady Thanks to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, small businesses are reporting fantastic news for future investment in their workers and companies. More than 44 percent of these businesses plan to give their workers a raise. More than half anticipate expanding their business and making new investments, and over a quarter of them plan to hire new workers. These tax cuts are working just as we predicted and all indications are that the news is only getting better - more jobs,... Read more

  • Tax Cuts and Jobs Act is Working for Texans

    By: U.S. Congressman Kevin Brady In celebration of National Small Business Week, I spent last week traveling around the Eighth Congressional District and surrounding area to meet with small businesses and their workers to hear from them directly about how the new tax law is impacting their lives. Russell Marine: Russell Marine, located on the Houston ship channel and owned by Mr. Russell Inserra, is a great example of a local small business that is reaping the many benefits of tax reform and pas...

  • Things the Mainstream Media Missed Last Week
    Posted in The Brady Briefing on April 23, 2018 | Preview rr

    By: U.S. Congressman Kevin Brady MISS #1. Last week the media breathlessly headlined major federal deficits in the future, citing lost revenue from the pro-growth tax cuts. Except they got it wrong. The Congressional Budget Office report shows Washington revenue for the next decade actually grows, not shrinks, since tax reform was signed by President Trump in December over the objections of every Democrat in Congress. How can this be? The media and liberals everywhere are peddling the claim that... Read more

  • Stop China's Cheating. But Protect U.S. Jobs.
    Posted in The Brady Briefing on April 9, 2018 | Preview rr

    By: U.S. Congressman Kevin Brady President Trump is right to target China's unfair trade practices. That country routinely steals America's intellectual property such as patents, blatantly forces American businesses to turn over their valuable technology to Chinese companies, and floods the world with illegally subsidized steel and aluminum-often hiding it by trans-shipping it through other countries into the U.S. This costs America tens of thousands of good-paying jobs. It's been going on a lon... Read more

    Posted in The Brady Briefing on March 12, 2018 | Preview rr

    By: U.S. Congressman Kevin Brady With the help of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, our economy is finally starting to fire on all cylinders. The Department of Labor indicated that in the first two months of 2018, the economy added an average of 276,000 jobs a month-far more than this time last year-and the proportion of people in their prime working years-25 to 54-who are working, is at its highest level since 2008. In addition to strong jobs gains and unemployment nearing its lowest level since the t... Read more

  • Backing our Military, Slashing Obamacare and Delivering Much Needed Relief to Victims of Hurricane Harvey
    Posted in The Brady Briefing on February 12, 2018 | Preview rr

    By: U.S. Congressman Kevin Brady As the Senate begins its debate on immigration reform and the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) this week, I will be working with President Trump to determine the best, most effective ways to end illegal immigration, secure our borders and provide a fair solution for DACA. President Trump shares my commitment to enforcing the rule of law, protecting Americans and strengthening America's border security, and together we can fix our immigration system f... Read more

  • Building American Prosperity
    Posted in The Brady Briefing on January 29, 2018 | Preview rr

    By: U.S. Congressman Kevin Brady President Trump will deliver his first State of the Union Speech this week. My guest is Jim “Mac” McInvale, a successful businessman, founder of Gallery Furniture and world-class philanthropist who embodies the American Dream. President Trump’s first year has energized the sluggish U.S. economy he inherited by balancing regulation and enacting the first tax reform bill in 31 years—which I’m proud to have authored. In just one month since the tax cuts were signed ... Read more
