Economy and Jobs
More on Economy and Jobs
This weekend, America lost a great servant and I lost a great friend. George H.W. Bush epitomized everything wonderful about America and, like his country, he was tough, strong and kind. He changed the nation and he changed the world.
I hope all of you in Texas' 25th District had a wonderful Thanksgiving filled with family and loved ones. For those of you with family members in the Armed Forces who were unable to be together this year, please know that we are all grateful for their service, and will continue to pray for their safety.
