Granger and Lowey—congressional couple that’s odd for...


... getting along WASHINGTON (JTA) — In any other town at any other time they would be a boring, if worthy, pair: Wonkish grandmothers sorting through nitty-gritty foreign policy and budgetary details to keep their country influential and safe. But in Washington at a time of intense partisan rancor, the friendly and productive relationship between Reps. Kay Granger (R-Texas) and Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.) is decidedly odd. Granger and Lowey, the top foreign appropriators in the U.S. House of Representatives, are being noticed for what was commonplace a decade or so ago: focusing on ...


GRANGER BILL REQUIRES ADMINISTRATION TO SELL F-16s TO TAIWAN


Washington, DC – Congresswoman Kay Granger (TX-12) today introduced legislation to require the Obama Administration to sell 66 new F-16 fighter jets to Taiwan. The legislation is a House companion bill to Senators Cornyn and Menendez’ Taiwan Airpower Modernization Act of 2011. The legislation will force the Obama Administration to comply with its legal obligations under the Taiwan Relations Act of 1979 which mandates the United States provide Taiwan with the military equipment it needs to defend its’ homeland. “The sale of F-16s to Taiwan ensures our key strategic ...


Granger calls out McCain over F-35 joint strike fighter


Rep. Kay Granger, R-Fort Worth, called Friday for increased production of the F-35 joint strike fighter and suggested that its critics, namely Sen. John McCain, visit the mile-long factory on the city's west side before continuing to push for cuts in the Defense Department's largest weapons program. Granger made her remarks after a morning tour of the facility with Rep. Jeff Miller, R-Fla., whose district includes Eglin Air Force Base, where F-35 pilots are trained. Both said that when Congress reconvenes next week, members should consider the nation's security goals before cutting into ...

My Take: The American Health Care Act
The number one concern of people in the 12th District is the future of the American health care system. This is a primary concern of mine, and why I wanted to give you more information on what is happening now in Washington. Dear Friend, Yesterday the House voted to pass the American Health Care Act, which will repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. This is the first important step to change the law. Now the Senate will have the opportunity to improve this legislation, after which the newly amended bill will return to the House for review, and then finally be sent to the President’s desk to be signed into law. I have spoken with many of you about your thoughts on the American Health Care Act, and have heard a lot of concerns related to pre-existing conditions. I share your concerns and want to take this opportunity to clear up some misinformation on that topic. Under the American Health Care Act it is still illegal for an insurance provider to deny someone coverage solely becau
My Take: Scenes from Around the 12th District
I wanted to take this opportunity to share some of my travels throughout our community over the recent district work period. Dear Friend, Our community is unique because while it is vibrant and growing, Fort Worth still has its “small town” feel. The reason for this is because of our spirit of volunteerism. When there is a need, people in our community step up to take care of one another. Local employees at U.P.S. do this by stepping up to be positive role models for children and help them shape a better future. I was pleased to take part in an event celebrating the U.P.S. Foundation’s support for Big Brothers Big Sisters Lone Star, and was honored to say a few words highlighting this partnership that makes our community stronger. Although right outside of our 12th District, I also toured the Gatehouse, a new facility that will serve our community by providing protection to the most vulnerable among us. The Gatehouse is a community for women and children experiencing crisis and o
Granger Statement on the American Health Care Act
WASHINGTON, DC – Congresswoman Kay Granger (TX-12) released the following statement after voting for passage of the American Health Care Act, which repeals some of the most burdensome taxes and penalties affecting families in the 12th District. “For the last seven years, Republicans have promised to repeal Obamacare,” Congresswoman Granger said. “Today we took the first step towards keeping that commitment. This legislation eliminates burdensome taxes and the harmful individual and employer mandates. It also nearly doubles the amount of money that Americans can save for medical expenses and empowers states to design programs to provide assistance to the most vulnerable. While the American Health Care Act is not perfect, passage in the House of Representatives is an important first step.  The bill will now go to the Senate where there will be opportunities for improvement.  “Many of my constituents have expressed their serious concerns about coverage of pre-existing conditio
My Take: Keeping the Government Open
The federal government’s first responsibility is to provide for our common defense. If the federal government is not open, our men and women in uniform are put at an unacceptable disadvantage. Dear Friend, Today I voted in favor of the one week continuing resolution to keep the government open. While not ideal, this added time will allow Congress to continue negotiating a final funding agreement for Fiscal Year 2017. There is a chance that Congress may pass a long-term continuing resolution at the end of next week. I am opposed to long-term continuing resolutions because they do not allow Congress to evaluate current funding priorities. Instead, they simply continue previous government spending. This in turn prevents Congress from addressing current priorities. In particular, a long-term continuing resolution is most devastating for our military. Without a new funding agreement focused on current priorities, the Navy will have to shut down half of its air wings, cancel the maintenanc
