Morristown native receives Congressional Medals


U.S. Rep. Phil Roe presented the Bronze and Silver Congressional Medals to Morristown native Joanna Suich. The 21-year-old is two-thirds of the way through completing the entire program, which is open to young people ages 14 to 23. Suich learned about the program in 2008 from a family friend, Shirley Goggans, and was intrigued by the opportunity. “I love to do new things. I thought it would be a great opportunity to serve others,” she said. The Congressional Award is a non-competitive, voluntary program with four diverse program areas that encourage youth to explore new areas of ...


Phil Roe performs CPR on man at airport


Representative Phil Roe retired from his medical career to go to Congress, but on Tuesday he put his doctor skills to use to help save a man's life at a Charlotte, North Carolina airport. The Tennessee Republican said he was drinking a cup of coffee and chatting with Representative Mick Mulvaney of South Carolina at the Charlotte Douglas International Airport when he heard someone shouting for a doctor. Roe ran over to a man lying on the floor. "I couldn't feel a pulse," Roe told Reuters by telephone from Washington. "It looked like he was taking his last breaths." Roe and another woman ...


Roe Hands Out $1.3M Government Check — He Voted Against


Congressman Roe doesn’t want to spend taxpayer dollars but he’s happy to dole it out. This is exactly the kind of sham leadership that has Tennesseans so frustrated with the Republican Congress. Roe voted against the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 — also known as the stimulus package. That didn’t seem to bother him in Greenville, where he handed out a $1.3 million check paid for by stimulus funds. ... Source: tndp.or

Roe Supports Funding for Children’s Health Insurance
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Rep. Phil Roe, M.D. (R-Tenn.) released the following statement after the House passed H.R. 3922, the Championing Healthy Kids Act, which reauthorizes funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP): “I proudly supported the extension of the Children’s Health Insurance Program, which extends an important health care safety net for low-income children. I am disappointed that after Republicans agreed to Democrats’ requests to postpone consideration of this important extension, Democrats were still not able to support this important legislation. I thank the 15 Democrats who did the right thing and voted in favor of it. This legislation will ensure community health centers can continue providing comprehensive health care services to populations that otherwise would not be able to afford it. Places like Camp Creek Medical Center, which I visited recently, depend on this funding, and I hope the Senate will quickly take up this legislation.”
Roe Congratulates Erwin Utilities on Receiving $15,000 Grant
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Rep. Phil Roe, M.D. (R-TN) congratulated Erwin Utilities on receiving a $15,000 grant from the Appalachian Regional Commission for its Cool & Connected Downtown Erwin Entrepreneurs Business Grant project. The project seeks to launch an entrepreneurial business plan competition as a collaboration between Erwin Utilities and the Unicoi County Joint Economic Development Board. The competition will be modeled off similar successful programs in nearby Bristol and Johnson City, Tennessee. Roe released the following statement: “Entrepreneurs and small businesses are the backbone of our economy, and I’m glad Erwin Utilities is working to provide resources for these ventures. Economic development is vital to the strength and advancement of small cities throughout the country, and I am pleased Erwin Utilities will receive this important funding to create an Entrepreneurial Business Grant competition. This competition will encourage job creation and creativ
Protecting Seniors’ Access to Care
This week, the House is acting once again to protect Americans from one of the worst features of Obamacare by taking up my bipartisan bill, H.R. 849, the Protecting Seniors’ Access to Medicare Act, legislation I introduced with Rep. Raul Ruiz, M.D. (D-CA). This legislation, which the House will consider on Thursday, would repeal the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB). The bill has 270 cosponsors, including 45 Democrats. I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again: the only thing bipartisan about Obamacare is its opposition, and this week’s vote is further proof of that. As I’ve discussed before, the IPAB was given broad, sweeping powers to reduce Medicare spending when actual spending exceeds an arbitrary target. In other words, if too many people need health care in any given year, then Medicare spending will be cut the following year. The IPAB is a panel comprised of 15 unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats. The proposals put forward by the IPAB would be considered using
Roe, Ruiz Bill to Repeal the Independent Payment Advisory Board Passes House
WASHINGTON, D.C.  – Today, the House passed H.R. 849, the Protecting Seniors’ Access to Medicare Act, a bill introduced by Reps. Phil Roe, M.D. (R-TN) and Raul Ruiz, M.D. (D-CA) to repeal the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB) by a vote of 307 to 111. “I am thrilled the House passed my bipartisan legislation, and I thank my colleagues for supporting the repeal,” said Dr. Roe. “The IPAB has been given sweeping powers to change Medicare with little recourse to change direction. Today, a strong bipartisan majority agreed that health care decisions should be left to doctors and patients, not unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats. After practicing medicine for more than 30 years, I can tell you that no two patients are the same; different patient needs and preferences require personalized care. The IPAB doesn’t take this into consideration, and could possibly harm seniors’ access to care by utilizing a one-size-fits-all approach to cut Medicare spending. I urge my
