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

Rolling Back Regulation to Pave the Way for Job Creation
A key portion of House Republicans’ Better Way agenda is to put forward proposals to grow the economy by reducing the total number of regulations and by regulating smarter with those that remain. In 2015, federal regulations were estimated to cost roughly $1.89 trillion in lost growth and productivity. Further, if the United States’ regulatory system were a country, it would have the world’s 9th largest economy. Out-of-control regulating has undoubtedly slowed economic recovery, which is why I am proud that the House and President Trump took major steps this week to ensure overregulation will no longer stand in the way of economic recovery. First, President Trump signed an executive order to cap the overall number of regulations. This executive order, which I strongly support, would require two regulations be repealed for every new regulation rolled out by the administration. The order also sets a goal through September 30, the end of this fiscal year, to have zero overall regu
Preserving Local Control in Education
Since coming to Congress, I’ve proudly served on the House Education and Workforce Committee. This experience has strengthened my belief that a quality education is critical to the future of our children and grandchildren, and serving on this committee gives me the opportunity to address issues facing our nation’s students, teachers and school administrators. I believe the vast majority of our educators do a wonderful job teaching their students, but for far too long government has inserted itself into classrooms. While accountability is an important tool to ensure all students receive a quality education, I’ve heard firsthand from many teachers that burdensome regulations have made it more difficult for them to do what they do best: teach. That’s why this week the House used the authority given to Congress through the Congressional Review Act (CRA) to pass measures to stop two of the Department of Education’s most misguided regulations. The first CRA would stop a teacher pr
Roe Reintroduces Bipartisan Bills to Protect Seniors, Repeal the Independent Payment Advisory Board
WASHINGTON, D.C.  – Today, Rep. Phil Roe, M.D. (R-Tenn.) released the following statement after introducing two resolutions to repeal Obamacare’s Independent Payment Advisory Board: “One of the most troubling parts of Obamacare is the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB). If this Obamacare provision is triggered, this unelected, unaccountable board could have a widespread control over Medicare spending, potentially affecting seniors’ access to care without any accountability to Congress or the administration. While we certainly need to take steps to preserve Medicare for future generations, I have grave concerns the IPAB could drastically cut Medicare benefits with little to no Congressional oversight. There is bipartisan agreement in Congress that the IPAB is a gross overreach of power, and I am glad to introduce the House version of these bipartisan, bicameral measures to protect seniors’ access to Medicare while we work to repeal Obamacare as a whole.”  
Roe Statement on President Trump’s Executive Order on the Fiduciary Rule
WASHINGTON, D.C.  – Today, Rep. Phil Roe, M.D. (R-Tenn.) released the following statement after President Trump signed an executive order to halt the Department of Labor’s Fiduciary Rule: “Since 2010, I have chaired hearings, asked questions and written letters in an attempt to understand why the previous administration was pursuing this misguided rule. Our oversight exposed significant shortcomings with the rule, and I’m glad President Trump has signed an executive order to halt its implementation. We can all agree financial advisors should serve their clients’ best interests, but the Fiduciary Rule was a solution in search of a problem and created an unnecessarily complicated bureaucracy that would have hurt low and middle class investors by driving up the cost of investment advice. I look forward to working with the Trump administration to ensure all Americans, no matter their background, can save for retirement.” Background: Last April the House passed Roe’s le
