This year we celebrate 100 years of women in Congress, and the leadership of not one, not two, but three new committee chairwomen. In a new video, Rep. Susan Brooks (R-IN) and Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-NC), the new chairs of the Ethics and Education and Workforce Committees, and Rep. Diane Black (R-TN), interim chair of the Budget Committee, share their excitement for a fresh start and a new generation of women leaders in America.
I'm starting a new video series called 'What I'm Hearing" where I answer some common questions or concerns that I'm hearing from you. This week's episode focuses on plans to repeal the Affordable Care Act and rebuild our health care system. I hope you'll watch this week's episode, and tune in next week for another installment of #WhatImHearing.
I'm looking forward to making progress on the people's priorities, including repealing and replacing Obamacare, continuing to address the heroin and opioid epidemic, reforming our outdated tax system, getting rid of burdensome regulations, helping people get out of poverty, and returning to our Constitutional principals. I talked about some of these priorities with RTV6 in Indianapolis.
Many of us have watched a friend or loved one struggle with cancer, only to be told that there was little hope of a cure. 21st Century Cures provides patients and families with hope for a future and ensures that the United States will stay on the cutting edge of medical innovation. In addition, it reforms our mental health care system, provides resources to address heroin and opioid abuse, and strengthens our national biodefense.
Carmel’s West Clay Elementary recently earned the distinction of National Blue Ribbon School for 2016, the first time it has earned the honor. It was one of only 329 schools to earn the honor, and I was on hand to help celebrate.
