    Friend- 1,227. In 2017, 1,227 Virginians lost their lives to an opioid overdose. The opioid epidemic has taken the lives of too many. Addiction cannot continue to plague our country’s future. Given that this Saturday is National Drug Takeback Day, I wanted to draw your attention to how Congress and the administration are fighting back. Last year, the President designated the crisis a public health emergency, mobilizing federal resources to address the crisis with a new level of urgency. In addit... Read more

    Friend- Did you know that a key priority of mine is to make sure Congress creates an environment for businesses to flourish? Too often, government extinguishes the entrepreneurial spirit and acts as a barrier to success. I believe that the small-business, the manufacturer, and the entrepreneur are the backbone of our economy, so we should do everything in our power to remove obstacles to job creation and economic growth. That’s why I supported the recent tax reform legislation and the rollback o... Read more

    Weekly Update: Give Thanks By Rob Wittman November 23, 2017 We have a tradition in my family on Thanksgiving. We all sit down at the table, and before we start eating the beautifully prepared feast, we go around and say what we are thankful for. Well this year, I wanted to do the same thing for work as I do for family; look back through 2017 to think about what I am most thankful for. As I reflected on this year, I thought about all that we have accomplished. From the outset of 2017, I made it a... Read more

    Dear Friend- As you may know there are approximately 57.7 million aged and disabled Americans covered under Medicare. There has been a lot of change with Medicare over the past few years, from Part B premium increases to new Medicare cards beginning to roll out in 2018. Medicare is essentially health insurance coverage for seniors and those facing disabling conditions that render them unable to work. As I remain committed to protecting Medicare beneficiaries in my district, I want to make sure t... Read more

    Dear Friend - Let's face it: there is a lot of news coming out of Washington these days. And much of it is designed to draw a reaction from you or get you to take sides. But there is another story out there that you're not hearing. That's the story of the important accomplishments made by the House during the first eight months of this year. 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

    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. Having reviewed the text of the bill and the Upton and MacArthur Amendments, I believe this legislation does what is necessary to protect individuals with pre-existing conditions, meets the principles for health care reform I laid out several months ago, and puts in place policies that will expand health care choices, i...
