Earlier this month, I visited all five counties of the Second Congressional District to announce my 2016 Legislative Agenda. I look forward to this new legislative year to promote limited government and expanded freedom for American families which are under attack.
My main priorities include: creating jobs and economic growth, reducing regulations that harm jobs, strengthening our nation’s cyber capabilities, and promoting our military and veterans. To read more information about my legislative priorities, please click here.
In an effort to fulfill this broader legislative agenda, I am focused on specific policy reforms and legislative solutions that can support our troops and American families.
- Maintain our military’s responsiveness and capabilities to promote peace through strength
- Protect our nation against cyber-attacks
- Promote public-private partnerships to encourage cyber innovation
- Reverse defense sequestration which hollows out the military
- Support our Guard and Reserve units
- Ensure our veterans receive quality heathcare
The House is already working to achieve these priorities. One of the first bills passed this year was Restoring American’s Healthcare Freedom Reconciliation Act, critical legislation that completely repeals Obamacare and defunds Planned Parenthood. Though the President vetoed this legislation, it was the first time we got a bill that repeals Obamacare to the President’s desk—forcing him to defend what I believe is his broken healthcare law that cut services, raised premiums, and destroyed jobs for hardworking families across America. You can read more about a conservative alternative to Obamacare here.
The dangerous Iranian Nuclear Agreement goes into effect this month, giving the Iranian regime access to billions of dollars to support terrorism, expand their ballistic missile program, and threaten American families. We need to be clear with Tehran—the United States has zero tolerance for terrorism or regimes that support terrorism and chant, “Death to America, Death to Israel.”
I was grateful to stand up to stand up to the Iranian regime and co-sponsor the Zero Tolerance for Terrorism Act, critical legislation that gives Congress the ability to act quickly and effectively if and when Iran violates existing restrictions—protecting American families.
