    Washington, D.C. – I'm committed to truly serving the people of Georgia’s 10th Congressional District by listening, engaging, and finding common ground in order to achieve real solutions. Helping Georgians is my most important responsibility, and since coming to Congress, I have been dedicated to bringing back real representation by being accountable, accessible, and transparent while working hard every single day for our community. One of my highest priorities is to ensure that my staff and I a... Read more

    Washington, D.C. – Every day, I hear from veterans throughout the 10th District. These conversations and requests for assistance are often incredibly disheartening, and it’s clear that our Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) healthcare system requires significant and fundamental reform to ensure that these brave heroes are receiving the treatment they’ve earned in the line of duty. Unfortunately, all too often, they don’t. These men and women wait months for treatment – available to them only at... Read more

    WASHINGTON — America’s southern border is at a breaking point. I recently joined my colleagues, Congressmen Michael Cloud of Texas and Glenn Grothman of Wisconsin, in traveling to the Rio Grande Valley and Laredo sectors of the Lone Star State in order to get an up-close and personal view of this crisis. And let me be clear: It is a crisis. This trip was certainly eye-opening, and it’s obvious that criminal cartels in both Mexico and Central America are maintaining an outsized influence in the r...

    Washington, D.C. – As we reflect this Memorial Day, I encourage you to consider the words of Pierre Claeyssens, a stalwart supporter of the American military, who said, “To be killed in war is not the worst that can happen. To be lost is not the worst. To be forgotten is the worst.” While many of us will use this weekend to take trips with our families or grill out with neighbors, first and foremost this is a holiday dedicated to honoring the men and women who so bravely served our great Nation ...

    Washington, D.C. - Veteran suicide is not only a VA problem—it is an American problem. Just last month, two Georgia veterans took their own lives in front of Veterans Affairs (VA) facilities. Days later, a war hero in Texas decided to commit suicide while waiting in a VA medical center. Sadly, they are far from the only ones. Roughly 20 active-duty servicemembers and veterans commit suicide every single day. That’s more than 7,000 in a year. Our men and women in uniform are suffering, and it’s c... Read more

    Washington, D.C. – It’s tax season again. Fortunately, this year, folks are reading a different story from years past. Millions of hardworking Americans who have been left behind by Washington for far too long are now taking home more in their paychecks because Uncle Sam is taking less of their hard-earned money. With the historic passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act under the leadership of Congressional Republicans and President Trump, we lowered individual rates, simplified the tax code, and w... Read more

    Washington, D.C. – I firmly believe that, as Psalm 139:13 –14 tells us, we are all created in the image of God. He is the One who “knit me together in my mother’s womb,” and each and every one of us is, “wonderfully made”– not just at the point of birth, but from the very moment of conception. That’s why I grieved when earlier this year infanticide gained national attention after several states passed a series of callous and dangerous bills that would allow late-term abortions – all the way up u...

  • Collusion delusion is over

    In Case You Missed It… Collusion delusion is over By Reps. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio), Mark Meadows (R-N.C.), Michael Cloud (R-Texas), Jody Hice (R-Ga.), James Comer (R-Ky.), and Chip Roy (R-Texas) The collusion delusion is over. Congressional Democrats spent the last two years fear-mongering on the pretense that President Trump conspired with the Russians to rig the 2016 presidential election. They promised evidence of collusion. They boasted that Republicans would look “really stupid” once Mueller’s ... Read more

  • A Voice for Conservatives

    Washington, D.C. – Prior to coming to Congress and throughout my tenure as your representative in Washington, I have been working tirelessly to advance conservative principles and give a voice to the many Americans who feel as though their voices are not being heard in our Nation’s capital. It’s been heartening to see the progress we’ve been able to make under President Trump’s leadership, and I’m very proud of the accomplishments we’ve achieved since his inauguration. Bringing Georgia values to... Read more

  • A Circus, Not a Hearing
    Posted in Columns on March 1, 2019 | Preview rr

    Washington, D.C. – As a member of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, I had a front-row seat to this week’s debacle of a hearing, in which the disgraced and disbarred former lawyer to President Trump, convicted felon Michael Cohen, was invited to Congress to testify. Even more disappointing, however, is that this sideshow circus took place while President Trump was representing our country in Vietnam at the nuclear summit with North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un. Motivated by their abject h... Read more

Help with a Federal Agency

One of the most important things I do as a U.S. Representative is help constituents work through issues with federal agencies. Although I cannot override the decisions made by a federal agency, I can often intervene on a constituent’s behalf to get answers to questions, find solutions, or just cut through the red tape. Below you will find a list of agencies with which I can help you. However, regardless of which agency you need help navigating, you must complete a privacy authorization form to comply with the provisions of the Privacy Act. Please download this printable version of the casework authorization form and then fax or mail to the address listed under the agency from which you are seeking assistance.
