More on Health Care
I am heartbroken after learning of the hateful shooting yesterday in Sutherland Springs, Texas. The thought of someone walking into a place of worship and opening fire on innocent people is unthinkable. I am thankful for the brave citizen in this small town who helped stop the shooter, and I know the Lord is watching over the victims, their families, and all of the first responders who were affected. I will continue lifting up Texas with prayer.
This week has been a long time coming, and I am eagerly awaiting the release of the tax reform bill text. Scheduled to be released this week, the House has been working hard to ensure this new tax plan benefits all Americans. I want the 25th District of Texas to rest assured that I will not stop fighting until we have a bill that is fairer and simpler for you.
Tax Reform Update
Last week in Washington was a busy one. Fighting for a simpler and fairer financial system continues to be a top priority on my legislative agenda, and I will not stop until we have true tax reform. As I've said before, the Budget Resolution for Fiscal Year 2018 was the gateway to tax reform, and the House did its job - we are now waiting on our Senate counterparts to do the same so we can get this ball rolling.
