Repealing and Replacing Obamacare

We expected to vote on a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare this week but that legislation was pulled from the House floor. While it is disappointing that we were unable to pull together and pass this bill, we must learn from our mistakes and move forward. We need to get this right.

 

 

We simply cannot repeat the errors of Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi when Obamacare was forced on the American people. This fight is not over and I look forward to continually working on ways provide families with access to quality, affordable healthcare coverage.

Fighting for our Coal Miners

Our coal miners have powered our country for decades. They are some of America's hardest workers. However, thousands of coal miners and their families could lose their health benefits at the end of April.

 

 

Earlier this week, our office welcomed members of the UMWA and I was pleased to tell them about a recent meeting I had with President Trump. While at the White House, I raised this issue with the President himself and he pledged to support our efforts to protect the healthcare benefits of our miners.

They deserve to finally have peace of mind to know their coverage will continue. This will remain one of my highest priorities over the next month. To read more about this, click here.

Leading the Coal Caucus

It's an honor to serve as the Chairman of the Congressional Coal Caucus and this week our group welcomed Hal Quinn, President of the National Mining Association as our guest speaker. We discussed how we can continue to work with the Trump administration to roll back painful regulations that hurt the coal industry.

 

 

The coal industry is not only essential to providing power to homes and businesses across the country, but it also supports a lot of good paying jobs. Going forward the Coal Caucus will continue to work hard and find ways to speak as one voice.

Mountaineer Update

The men's basketball team fell to Gonzaga in the Sweet Sixteen and their season has now ended. They had a terrific year and they made all of us proud!

The baseball team won a thriller in their home opener with a walk off home run against Jacksonville, 5-3.

Let's go Mountaineers!

Have a great weekend, everyone!
