On Mueller the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) & the SECURE Act
By Cong. Kevin Brady
WASHINGTON D.C. (Texas Insider Report) When Robert Mueller first released his report I had hoped Democrats would finally drop their obsessive rush to impeachment and instead try working with Republicans on solving issues important to the American people. Their reaction to Muellers recent comments however show they would seemingly chase a stray dog if it led them to impeachment theyre still dead-set on finding any reason to take down this President.
The Mueller Deniers" are at it again. Special Counsel Robert Mueller recently made a definitive statement about his reports conclusion no collusion none between Russia and the Trump campaign.
Its time for Democrats to accept the results of the 2016 Election and recognize that no collusion occurred by any American including President Trump.
Congressman Al Green of Houston revealed the truth when he pleaded
If we dont impeach him he will be re-elected."
Throwing the country into a constitutional crisis so your party can win the White House? Thats dangerous to our democracy AND The ballot box still matters in America.
Momentum is growing in Texas for the modernized free trade agreement with Mexico and Canada. Texas is made for trade" selling $127 billion of Made-in-Texas goods to our neighboring trade partners which supports over 900000 Texas jobs.
Last week I traveled across the district and heard first-hand from folks in every industry agriculture energy manufacturing just how important the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) is to them and why Congress should act now to approve the new agreement.
The President has made it clear: Mexico must do more to stop the humanitarian crisis at the border and he is serious about taking necessary actions to find a real solution.
Mexico is a valued ally and the new tariffs are not yet in affect. There is a window to find common ground and its in both countries interest to do so. Resolving this issue is essential to the passage of the new USMCA that will benefit workers farmers and businesses in both countries.
Recently the House passed the SECURE Act a savings reform plan by Ways & Means Committee Chairman Ritchie Neal and myself that helps people save more and earlier for retirement helps more small businesses offer retirement plans and raises the age to 72 before the government forces you to start spending your savings (my goal is to eliminate the requirement completely). As chairman of the committee I led these bipartisan reforms successfully through the U.S. House twice last year but time ran out to send to the President. Now the bill heads to the Senate for consideration.
