From the outset of 2017, we made it a priority to work on the issues that matter most to you and I believe we took meaningful steps to grow our economy, str... Read more

This week I met with health care administrators at Riverside Tappahannock Hospital to discuss health care services in the Northern Neck. We focused on the lack of phys... Read more

    Friends - Like you, I am a strong defender of life and I am proud of my pro-life voting record in the House. I wanted to take a moment to update you on my continued work to uphold the values and principles in which we all believe. As you know, Congress is working to replace the Affordable Care Act with patient-centered reforms that will increase access to care, expand health care choices for Americans, and lower costs. A key provision in the House-passed American Health Care Act (AHCA) included ... Read more

    Friend, This week, the House of Representatives passed H.R. 1628, the American Health Care Act, with my support. It is clear the Affordable Care Act is failing and must be fixed.

    Friends - This week House Republican leaders unveiled the American Health Care Act, legislation that repeals and replaces the Affordable Care Act (ACA), or Obamacare. In my view, the ACA has fallen well short of its own stated goals to expand choices, increase access to care, and reduce costs. That is why I voted to repeal all or parts of it numerous times. All across the country insurance providers are leaving the ACA-created exchanges, resulting in less choice and higher costs. In Virginia, pr... Read more

    Hi Friend- Americans spoke louder than ever to say: Washington needs to change the way it does business and I agree. I am fully dedicated to representing the constituents of the First District.
