Yachts

We deserve better from our representatives. Get to work today.
Organizing for Action
Robert --

On December 20, 2017, Republicans forced through a massive tax scam for the rich -- one that gave millionaires and corporations huge, unnecessary tax breaks, and added $1.9 trillion to our country's debt.

Almost immediately afterwards, they had the audacity to tell us they'd start looking at cuts for programs like Medicaid and Social Security to pay for it.

It was shameless.

Even worse, we found out that Republican Rep. Vern Buchanan (FL-16) -- a member of the Ways and Means Committee that wrote the bill, and a Congressman personally worth an estimated $74 million -- bought a massive yacht for himself on the same day he voted for the bill.

Just to be clear: Rep. Buchanan wrote and voted for a tax bill that put millions of dollars in his own pocket -- and cashed it in with a yacht the very same day.

Robert, as if we needed a clearer piece of evidence: These Republican representatives don't care about middle-class families, and it's time to hold them accountable.

They didn't care when they tried to gut Obamacare dozens of times, raising premiums and threatening millions of Americans' coverage. They didn't care when they passed this tax scam, despite nonpartisan estimates that showed taxes on middle-class Americans would go up in the coming years.

And they still don't care today.

This week, OFA volunteers showed up at offices nationwide. They hand-delivered personal yachts to representatives who voted for the tax scam, and showed how out of touch these representatives are with everyday Americans:

July highlights

Click here to                      visit my website

Friend-

The people's House accomplished a great deal of work this July. We passed landmark legislation to improve career and technical education programs. We passed a defense bill that provides the authorities and resources for our men and women of the Armed Forces to do the job we've asked them to do. We also passed a series of bills targeted at lowering healthcare costs – specifically the cost of medication and premiums.

To see more of what I was up to this month, check it out below!


I was honored to receive the Transparency and Accountability Democracy Award from the Congressional Management Foundation! My number one priority is listening to the people I represent and using their thoughts, concerns, and insights to better represent them in Washington.
 

I stopped by Carepac Pharmacy in Mechanicsville to talk with folks about solutions to the rising cost of premiums and prescription drug prices. I am still focused on fighting for  a health care system where doctors and patients can be in control of their own health care decisions and everyday American families have the option to see a doctor of their choice.

I enjoyed spending the Fourth of July traveling across the First District, celebrating the gift of liberty, and talking with constituents about the latest happenings in Washington. 


I visited with Minuteman Press in Ashland to hear how their business has benefited from the work Congress has done to bring our our booming economy. 

I enjoyed visiting the Hanover Regional Governor's School for Career and Technical Advancement to see how our students are developing tangible skill sets to succeed in the workforce.

I spoke with American Enterprise Institute about how our Navy does not consistently receive the predictable funding it truly needs nor does it have the requisite ships to meet global demand. This proves that now more than ever we must reach a fleet of 355 ships to meet global demand.

I toured Trivett's Furniture in Fredericksburg and spoke with folks about how Congress is working to get government out of the way so small businesses can succeed.

I toured the Pamunkey Regional Jail in Hanover with the McShin Foundation. I'm grateful for their work to assist folks struggling with addiction and I enjoyed our conversation about criminal justice reform and Congress' continued work to combat the opioid epidemic.
