Newsletter - What's Next for Obamacare Repeal?
Good afternoon from Washington, D.C. –
As most of you are aware, Congress continues to debate the best options for repealing and replacing Obamacare. I am working with fellow colleagues to find a path to keep our promise to repeal Obamacare, and the opinion pieces (below) explain my thoughts on this process. Your thoughts on this process are welcome and appreciated.
Efforts to repeal Obamacare are ongoing, and many of my colleagues are willing to forgo the April district work period to stay in DC in order to resolve this issue. I, too, am willing to stay as long as the discussions lead toward a solution that keeps faith with the American people. You can be assured that my work on health care reform in the House of Representatives is far from over.
- PRESS RELEASE: Statement on the upcoming AHCA vote
- OP-ED: Why I'm voting against the GOP health bill
- OP-ED: Freedom Caucus member: Despite the healthcare bill's failure, there are still many options for repealing and replacing Obamacare
- Arizona Freedom Caucus members still want ‘Obamacare' repeal
As promised, our office is in the process of planning at least one town hall for the April recess. Stay tuned for the date, time, and location, which will be released as soon as all of the details are confirmed.
ON THE FLOOR:
This week, it was important to speak on the U.S. Floor on the issue of tax reform. Watch:
Thank you to all of the veterans and community partners who made our first veterans resource fair a huge success. We were able to provide exceptional service to all those in attendance. Stay tuned for more events to serve and honor our veterans in the 115th Congress.
2017 U.S. SERVICE ACADEMY CONFERENCE:
As your Congressman, I am pleased to announce the 2017 U.S. Service Academy Conference for Arizona's Fifth Congressional District. This event is open to all high school students in the District and is designed to inform them and their families about the educational opportunities available through the U.S. Military Academy (USMA), the U.S. Naval Academy (USNA), the U.S. Air Force Academy (USAF), and the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA). Students will also be able to request an application packet at the conference.
The conference will be held on Saturday, April 22, 2017, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 pm in the auditorium of Williams Field High School, which is located at 2076 South Higley Road, Gilbert, Arizona 85259.
Representatives from each U.S. Military Service Academy will be present to answer questions pertaining to their respective academy. Graduates from each academy will also be present to highlight the benefits of attendance. As I am sure you know, earning a nomination to a service academy is a great privilege and honor.
If you have any questions about this conference or the admission and nomination process for a military service academy, please do not hesitate to contact our Academy Representative, Janet Bosley, at 480-699-8239 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
