Weekly Update - 2.1.19

Greetings! Today, I am attending the Republican Party of Pennsylvania’s Annual Winter Meeting in Hershey. This is a great opportunity for me to catch up with so many friends and supporters, update them on what is going on in Congress and thank them for their support.

This week, we had our first Budget Committee hearing where I spoke out about the need for the federal government to reduce spending. I questioned Keith Hall, the Director of the Congressional Budget Office, about the real financial issues our nation is facing due to the dramatic overspending that occurred prior to 2016.

Greetings. I know the forecast is calling for a lot of snow and sleet across the District and I would encourage everyone to be safe. Don’t travel unless you have to and be sure to stay tuned to the latest news regarding weather and road conditions.

We had another busy week in Washington, D.C. Today, I participated in the March for Life. We gathered to march on behalf of the rights of the unborn and in support of human unborn life. The crowd was incredibly large. Everyone was enthusiastic in their support of the pro-life movement, friendly and courteous and I can't begin to describe how much I appreciated the energy they brought. (Pictures below)

Earlier in the week, I even had some familiar faces stop by for a visit... my wife, Shelley, and my mother-in-law. (Pictured below) I can tell you that having the support of my family is so important and I was really happy that they came down for a visit. I truly couldn't do this job without their unwavering support and understanding.

Good afternoon. As you have heard, the President has agreed to temporarily reopen the government. That doesn't change the fact that we have a crisis at the border and we must fund border security including a wall/physical barrier. I will for the next three weeks work very hard to support the President in securing a longterm bill that includes funding for the wall.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi and their Democratic members must stop putting politics over the people and work with us in a serious manner to provide the tools Homeland Security and Border Patrol Agents have said are necessary to secure our border.
