Kevin Brady is a pro-family, pro-small business conservative representing the 8th District of Texas in the U.S House of Representatives.
Kevin holds key leadership posts in Congress including Deputy Whip and Chairman of the Joint Economic Committee. He is a senior member of the House Ways & Means Committee – – considered by many to be the most powerful committee in Congress with jurisdiction over taxes, health care, Social Security, Medicare, international trade and welfare.
A champion of free enterprise and American-made energy, Kevin’s focus is creating jobs, reducing Washington spending and sunsetting obsolete federal agencies.
Kevin is the chairman of the influential Health Subcommittee for the House Ways and Means Committee. As chairman, he will focus on ensuring a strong, free market in the nation’s health care industry and look for ways to increase the quality of health care, while keeping costs low.
On the Social Security Subcommittee, Kevin is fighting to preserve this important program for future generations once and for all.
And as chairman of the Joint Economic Committee, he has been a GOP leader on economic issues – opposing the President’s stimulus and fighting White House efforts to raise taxes on families, small businesses and American energy producers.
Until 2013, Kevin was the leader of the Trade Subcommittee and led the successful effort to pass new sales agreements with Panama, South Korea and Colombia – and he served as the White House point man on the successful passage of the Central American Free Trade Agreement.
Prior to his election to Congress, Kevin worked as a chamber of commerce executive for 18 years and served six years in the Texas House of Representatives where he was named one of the Ten Best Legislators for Families & Children. In 1994 he was named one of Five Outstanding Young Texans.
In order to stay close to the people he represents, Kevin never moved to Washington. He lives in Montgomery County with his wife Cathy and his two sons Will (15) and Sean (12) – and has logged nearly two million miles on Continental Airlines commuting to Congress each week.
Kevin is an original Hometown Hero of The Woodlands, a Paul Harris Fellow in Rotary and a Distinguished Alumni of the University of South Dakota. He and his family attend Saints Simons and Jude Catholic Church.
