Speeches

May 23, 2017 Speech

Mr. Speaker, today I must first thank Chairman Roe for all his leadership and work on behalf of our veterans.  I also thank him for allowing me to contribute to his efforts.

Today, I rise to support the H. R. 2288, the Veterans Appeals Improvement and Modernization Act

Mr. Speaker, as a fiscal conservative, let me set the record straight. This bill’s $296 million Medicaid funding is just a bridge. This legislation simply reprograms this funding to partially address the impending Medicaid cliff.  In short, this allocation does not constitute new money.
