Three Cheers for Cong. Patrick McHenry


The economic condition of the U.S. economy is affected by poor job creation. A necessary requirement for creation of employment opportunity is financing. Yorktown University's John Hilston reportsthat American banks have reduced lending to small businesses by $15 billion. That affects the ability of existing, profitable, businesses to grow. Most small businesses have "receivables" that they can borrow against and that gives them adequate cash on hand to pay their employees and vendors until their own customers make payment on services and goods. Small business owners also have personal lines ...

McHenry Introduces the Family Care Savings Act
Today, Chief Deputy Whip Patrick McHenry (R, NC-10) introduced H.R. 782, the Family Care Savings Act. This legislation raises the cap on dependent care flexible spending accounts from $5,000 to $10,000 and indexes the cap amount to inflation. Joining as an original cosponsor of the legislation is Congresswoman Grace Meng (D, NY-06).  "In recent years, we've seen the cost of everyday goods and services rise dramatically and yet the vast majority of American families have seen their wages stagnate," said Congressman McHenry. "These new budget realities have posed unique challenges which the Family Care Savings Act aims to address. By increasing the cap on dependent care flexible spending accounts, this bipartisan legislation can help ease the financial burden on families saving for vital child and dependent care services.”  BACKGROUND: The dependent care FSA was originally created as part of the Tax Reform Act of 1986 and is designed to help American families plan
McHenry Congratulates President Trump
Chief Deputy Whip Patrick McHenry (NC-10) released the following statement after the swearing-in of President Donald J. Trump: “Congratulations to the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump. Now's the time for action. Over the next four years, I look forward to working with President Trump to repair our nation’s broken healthcare system, rewrite our tax code, and create a regulatory climate that allows small businesses to grow and prosper. Together, we can improve the lives of all American families."
McHenry on Republican Actions to Defend Life
Chief Deputy Whip Patrick McHenry (NC-10) released the following statement after House passage of H.R. 7, the No Taxpayer Funding for Abortion and Abortion Insurance Full Disclosure Act: “This Friday, many western North Carolinians will travel to Washington to join with hundreds of thousands of their fellow Americans solemnly marching against the tragedy of abortion. Our House majority is committed to standing with them in defense of life and today we voted to do that with passage of HR 7.   “Combined with President Trump’s executive order Monday reaffirming President Reagan’s Mexico City policy, passage of HR 7 will ensure federal tax dollars are never used to fund abortions either at home or abroad. These important steps reaffirm our commitment to standing in defense of those who cannot defend themselves.” 
McHenry Introduces the EPIC Act
Chief Deputy Whip Patrick McHenry (NC-10) introduced H.R. 675, the Empowering Parents to Invest in Choice (EPIC) Act. Introduced during National School Choice Week, this legislation enables parents to save for their children's education in tax-free savings accounts including the popular 529 savings accounts. Additionally, this legislation would increase the contribution limits to Coverdell accounts.  “Ensuring a good educational foundation for your children is among each parent’s greatest concerns in life,” said Congressman McHenry. “Yet today, rising costs have made it increasingly difficult for parents to achieve this goal.  “With introduction of the EPIC Act, I hope to change that,” McHenry continued. “By allowing parents to save tax-free via 529 accounts, this legislation provides children the opportunity to attend the school of their choice, while also increasing access to important educational resources like books, tutors, or special needs services.
