GOP Freshmen Hone Their Message


Does the Republican Party have a messaging problem? Members of the House freshman class seem to think so. And in order to try and remedy the situation, seven of them met on Thursday morning in a Longworth House Office Building conference room, to discuss what they needed to be better at communicating to the American people. They also invited one member of the media to hear them message about messaging. It was all very "meta." Rep. Tim Scott, R-S.C., organized the meeting with Reps. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, Morgan Griffith of Virginia, Steve Southerland of Florida, Cory Gardner of ...


Congr. working to save Roanoke, Lynchburg mail proces.center


Sometime after May 15th the Roanoke and Lynchburg mail processing plants will close. In a release the postal service says the May 15th moratorium was to give Congress time to enact legislation. Back in November, 9th District Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-Salem) told WSLS he was co-sponsoring a bill, that would repeal the requirement forcing the Postal Service to pay health benefits up front for 75 years, and in turn save money and prevent closures. That bill is still in committee. So we went back to Griffith to ask him, did Congress not do enough? "Could we have encouraged them to take it ...

Congressman Griffith's Weekly E-Newsletter 10.2.17
Tax Reform Delivers for the American People Benjamin Franklin famously noted that “in this world, nothing is certain except death and taxes.” He may have been right that taxes are a certainty, but there’s no reason why they have to be as complicated as the current U.S. tax code makes them. It’s been over thirty years since the last major tax reform, and the tax code hasn’t kept up with the times. Instead, it has grown in complexity. The only thing our tax system does well is befuddle the taxpayer. But President Trump and congressional Republicans have a framework to change this state of affairs. If implemented, the framework would make your taxes lower, fairer, and simpler. The framework replaces the current seven tax brackets with three brackets of 12%, 25%, and 35%. These brackets would lower rates for most people, and those in the current code’s 10% bracket are expected to have a 0% rate. Many deductions that have accumulated over the years, generally for higher-inco
Congressman Griffith's Weekly E-Newsletter 10.9.17
Right-to-Try Update The House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health, on which I serve, recently heard testimony from Dr. Scott Gottlieb, head of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), about expanding access to new, unapproved treatments for patients with life-threatening illnesses. I have long supported the idea of “right-to-try,” having introduced bills on the issue since 2014, and I am encouraged by increased support for it in Congress and by this Administration. On the day that Dr. Gottlieb testified before my Committee, he announced in a blog post that FDA had updated guidance for expanded access to investigational drugs for treatment use. According to Dr. Gottlieb, the new guidance would require reporting suspected adverse reactions to investigational drugs only if evidence suggests that the drug is responsible. This revision would be a step in the right direction, and I am hopeful it will help patients facing long odds for recovery. I will continue to work in Con

Griffith Bill Would Save Taxpayers $3.4 Billion, According to New Study
A recent study by Wakely Consulting Group found that a bill introduced by Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) to make sure community pharmacists receive the reimbursement rates they are promised would save the Federal Government $3.4 billion over 10 years. The bill, H.R. 1038, the Improving Transparency and Accuracy in Medicare Part D Drug Spending Act, was introduced by Congressman Griffith and Congressman Peter Welch (D-VT). Congressman Griffith issued the following statement: “Paying pharmacists what they are promised is only fair. Ending retroactive payment reductions would let pharmacists, especially in rural areas, focus on serving their customers, and, according to the study, it would save the Federal Government billions. Wakely Group Study shows that customers, pharmacists, and taxpayers would all benefit.” To read the study, click here. ###
