Texas Insider Report: WASHINGTON, D.C. – This week I was back in Washington, D.C. to work on addressing issues most important to TX-25 and fighting back against the Democrats' socialist policies. Democrats' and President Biden continued to push their multi-trillion dollar spending agenda that would be the largest tax and spending increase in our nation's history. From skyrocketing inflation, raising the debt ceiling, to nationwide supply shortages, President Biden's economic crisis impacts all Americans.
Calling out Biden's Out-of-Touch SBA
I spearheaded a letter, with all House Small Business Committee Republicans, to Small Business Administration (SBA) Administrator Isabella Guzman. Our letter called out the inability of Biden's SBA to answer Republicans' questions on proposed tax increases and the effects that raising taxes would have on small businesses, entrepreneurs, and startups across the country. It is completely unacceptable that the agency charged with assisting our small businesses is so ill-prepared and out of touch with Main Street America. You can read my full statement below and the full letter by clicking here.
"It was deeply troubling to witness SBA Associate Administrator, Mark Madrid, unprepared and unable to answer fundamental questions on proposed tax increases and its impacts on our Nation’s Job creators and entrepreneurs. The Biden SBA has demonstrated it is out of touch with the small business it is charged with assisting. As committee Republicans continue to provide oversight of the Biden Administration’s SBA, we must be able to get straightforward answers on the questions and concerns we are hearing every day from our constituents.
"It is inexcusable that some of the top leadership within this agency will not recognize or even attempt to defend these misguided tax proposals and the drastic impact they would have on Main Street America."

I joined Fox News Radio's Guy Benson Show to address the unprecedented level of illegal apprehensions we are seeing at our southern border. According to the CBP, U.S. authorities detained more than 1.7 million migrants along the Mexico border during the 2021 fiscal year that ended in September - this is on track to be the highest level EVER recorded. This border crisis is a direct result of President Biden and the Border Czar's failed leadership and open border agenda.

In an unprecedented move, the Biden Administration imposed a mandatory vaccine requirement on U.S. employees - a violation of Americans' right and freedom. I oppose this authoritative mandate and joined my colleagues in the fight against this move by cosponsoring Reps. Claudia Tenney and Jim Banks' Health Freedom For All Act. This bill restricts OSHA from forcing Americans to receive vaccines or undergo testing. Forcing the vaccine on the American people is both illegal, and demonstrates the Biden Administration's egregious authoritarian power grab and attempt to destroy Main Street America.
