Come and Read It Report
Did you know that 90% of Americans will see an increase in their paychecks this month as a result of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act? That means approximately 540,000 hardworking Americans in our district are taking more money to the bank as a result of this historic tax reform.
In case you missed it, I joined Fox Business News' Mornings with Maria to discuss the new tax law last week. Regardless of what my colleagues across the aisle are saying, these "crumbs" are adding up, and the proof is in your paycheck. To watch, click here.
True Blue Award
Last week, I was awarded the True Blue Award by Family Research Council Action for my steadfast support of faith, family, and freedom. I promised Texans that I would bring my conservative values to Washington and vote with my conscience every day. In the past year I have fought to protect the unborn, repeal Obamacare, and overhaul our nations’ broken tax code. I am grateful for this recognition, and I look forward to continuing to uphold our American ideals. You can read my full release here.
I also participated in a Financial Services Committee hearing to receive testimony on the negative effects that "de-risking" has on small businesses’ access to credit. I’d like to thank Secretary Bryan Schneider, who represented the Conference of State Bank Supervisors, and Mr. Jason Oxman, CEO of the Electronic Transactions Association, for their expert testimony on this subject. You can click on the video below to watch my exchange with the witnesses.
It is an honor and privilege to represent the people of Texas’ 25th Congressional District and as always, please reach out to me with any issues and concerns that are important to you.
In God we trust,
Member of Congress
