Working With West Virginia’s Leaders

On Friday, I traveled to Charleston to meet with Governor Justice and members of the West Virginia Legislature. It is very important that state and federal leaders work together and advance solutions that will benefit our state. Together we must focus on bringing jobs back to West Virginia, investing in long overdue infrastructure projects, and combating the dangers of drug abuse and addiction.

 

 

We now have an opportunity to unleash great potential throughout West Virginia. Only a lack of an imagination can hold us back. I’m looking forward to continually building a bridge between Charleston and Washington to help improve the lives of our fellow Mountaineers.

No Carbon Tax

This week former Republican officials advocated for a carbon tax in a meeting with White House aides. This is an idea that has been around for decades. It was a bad idea in the past and it’s a bad idea now. There are three outcomes with the implementation of a carbon tax: a decrease in the production of fossil fuels that will lead to further job losses, an increase in energy costs for consumers, and a weakening of American competitiveness across the globe. I am confident the House of Represenatives would not support such a tax.

 

 

Reforming Healthcare

The rising costs and limited coverage of healthcare plans continue to be a grave and growing problem all across the country. It is very clear that Obamacare has failed. Premiums and deductibles are too high and families have fewer choices. Obamacare must be repealed and replaced with a system that expands access to quality and affordable care and we remain committed to working toward that goal.  

 

 

Meeting with Constituents

This week we held many important meetings to discuss a variety of issues. They includeded rural water development, law enforcement, transportation, and health care, among others. Meeting with constituents and listening to their concerns is an important part of making sure the voices of my fellow West Virginians are heard in Congress.

 

 

Constituent service is a top priority in our office. If there is an issue that is very important to you and you would like to request a meeting with me or a member of my staff, you can do so by clicking here. If you plan to visit Washington, DC, drop by our office and say hello.
