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 ...

Griffith Introduces Medicaid Individual Responsibility Bill
Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) introduced a bill that would allow states to implement work requirements for adults who are able to work in order to receive Medicaid.  There are exemptions included for those who are disabled, pregnant, or elderly.  There are also exemptions for those taking care of young or disabled children.  The bill leaves the specifics of the work requirements and the ability to administer the program to the states.  Several states have previously requested the ability to implement work requirements; however under the previous administration all requests were rejected. Congressman Griffith said, “Medicaid is a safety net for those who need help, but it was never intended to be a long term benefit for abled bodied adults who choose not to work. For those that can’t find jobs, training programs, education, and job search assistance can be provided to help them meet the work requirement. This will allow recipients to move into a situa
Congressman Griffith's Weekly E-Newsletter 3.13.17
Health Care Reform This week, the House of Representatives achieved the first steps in the repeal and replacement of Obamacare.   As a bill moves through Congress, as you may remember from Civics classes, the bill starts in the committee with jurisdiction over the content of the bill.  The committee reviews the content and votes on the bill.   The American Health Care Act is comprised of two parts.  The financial side that repeals and replaces most of Obamacare finances went through the House Ways and Means Committee.   The Energy and Commerce Committee, on which I sit, worked on the other part, health care policy.   In a marathon 27 ½ hour long debate, lasting through the night and only pausing to vote, my committee, Energy and Commerce passed our part of the American Health Care Act.   Unlike Obamacare, which was rammed through without giving Members of Congress, or the public, time to read the bill, we are following a step-by-step, de
