    One of the great privileges of serving you is the opportunity to meet with constituents from all across eastern and central Missouri to listen to their concerns, hear their stories, and try to help them.

    Life brings many twists, turns, ups and downs to all of us. Many of us have experienced a mother, sister, daughter, or friend who has been diagnosed with, suffered from, and bravely fought against breast cancer. With Mother’s Day approaching, I was again reminded about the importance of women’s health, access to health-care, and the critical need to prevent and cure breast cancer. Read more

    Whether I am traveling around the 3rd District or meeting with constituents in Washington, one common-theme I hear is that you are rightfully concerned about the nation’s spending. I agree with you: our nation’s spending is unacceptably high. That’s why this week, I’d like to dive a little bit deeper into the true drivers of government spending and how we can get our country back on a path to fiscal sanity. Read more

    Three years ago, a Pennsylvania jury convicted Kermit Gosnell of three counts of murder for delivering and then killing infants born alive. Nearly one year ago, we first saw the inhumane Planned Parenthood videos. It is important that we not put these events behind us, but, instead, use these somber anniversaries as a reminder that the fight to protect the unborn is a worthy one that we must carry on every single day. We have all been blessed with the gift of life, and it is incumbent upon us to continue to stand up for the rights of our world’s most vulnerable population, the unborn. Read more

    Tax day is around the corner and with it comes a reminder that our tax code remains far too complicated for most Americans.
