Veterans Day: Serving those who served our country

Rep. Rick Crawford (R-AR) • November 10, 2017

Service seems to be woven into the fabric of rural America.  I’m not sure why that’s the case. Perhaps when there are fewer people to fill the roles in a community, whether it’s a volunteer firefighter, church leader, or little league coach, you end up wearing a lot of hats.  And you step up because …

Veterans Day is about remembering sacrifice

Rep. Trent Kelly (R-MS) • November 10, 2017

We live in the greatest nation on earth, enjoying freedoms won and maintained by the service of our veterans. Since the first citizen-soldiers fired the “shot heard around the world” on the Lexington Common, millions of Americans have dutifully answered their nation’s call by risking everything in the defense of liberty. Their sacrifice warrants our …

Tax reform is an investment in Pennsylvanians

Rep. Lloyd Smucker (R-PA) • November 6, 2017

Every American deserves the opportunity to pursue their own unique version of the American Dream. For far too long, we’ve had a tax code that leaves families feeling like they’re doing everything right, but still struggling to make ends meet.  When the Tax Cuts & Jobs Act was introduced last Thursday, you could feel the …

Tax reform isn’t about brackets — it’s about people

Rep. Rob Wittman (R-VA) • November 3, 2017

If you want to see the face of tax reform, look to America’s First District. Since America’s founding, the First District of Virginia, my home, has been a stronghold for hardworking men and women who grow food, raise their families, and help shape what we now consider the American Dream. Each day, I commute back …

“Lower taxes. We can keep more. We can do more.”

Rep. Paul Mitchell (R-MI) • October 31, 2017

Did you know that in Michigan, 40 percent of residents can’t afford basic necessities? It’s a startling number. Knowing just how many of our fellow Michiganders are barely scraping by is a constant reminder to my colleagues and me of the responsibility we have as their representatives. It’s on us to do everything in our …

My district is the face of tax reform

Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC) • October 27, 2017

More jobs. Fairer taxes. Bigger paychecks. Those are the goals of our plan for tax reform, and they’re inspired by the people who elected us to be their voice here in representative government. Today, I get to share that voice on a more personal level. House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers will join me …

How we felt the morning of September 12

Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) • September 12, 2017

I will never forget where I was on September 11, 2001. I will also never forget the feeling I had waking up the morning of September 12. The shock and uncertainty after the previous day’s attack hadn’t faded, but I felt more connected to my neighbors than I did before. Though we lived thousands of …

My 9/11 experience from the White House

Rep. Jodey Arrington (R-TX) • September 11, 2017

16 years ago today, the world as we knew it changed. For me, as for most Americans, the images of September 11, 2001 remain seared in my memory. As a young man serving in the White House for President George W. Bush, I vividly recall the emotions of that day – first shock as I …

“I knew the world had forever changed”

Rep. Don Bacon (R-NE) • September 9, 2017

On September 11, 2001, I woke up at 5:45 am local time in Tucson, Arizona where I was stationed at the Davis-Monthan Air Force base.  I remember turning on the television and seeing that the first tower was on fire. As the second tower burst into flames, I realized we were under attack. I raced …
