  • Leading Full Repeal of Obamacare

    Many families have contacted my offices to share their stories, and I am committed to making those voices heard. I shared one of the letters on the House floor that described how harmful Obamacare has been for families in southeast and southern Missouri.
  • Recognizing Three Rivers College Basketball Head Coach Gene Bess

    I had the honor of presenting a Congressional Record to Three Rivers College Coach Gene Bess for becoming the first college basketball coach to reach 1,200 wins.
  • Fighting the President’s Power Grab

    Article I of the Constitution says Congress will change the laws, not the president. Watch my remarks on the House floor about President Obama's unconstitutional executive action on immigration.
  • Honoring Our Veterans

    One of the best parts of my job is being able to honor the brave men and women who have served our country. Recently I presented a flag flown over the U.S. Capitol in Washington on Veterans Day to WWII veteran, Glennon Welker, a Navy Seabee during WWII, in honor of his service to America.
  • Tax Reform and Rural America

    My op-ed on tax reform and rural America was published in The Hill newspaper. I am committed to easing the tax burdens that hinder prosperity for rural America.
