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 Statement on Introduction of Free Speech on College Campuses Resolution
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Rep. Phil Roe, M.D. (R-TN) introduced H.Res. 307, a bipartisan resolution that reinforces Americans’ First Amendment rights on college campuses. This resolution will express a sense of Congress that institutions of higher education should facilitate and recommit themselves to protecting and promoting the free and open exchange of ideas, and that free speech zones and codes are inherently at odds with the First Amendment. Roe released the following statement: “With our current political climate, it’s more crucial than ever that colleges and universities protect all First Amendment rights,” said Rep. Roe. “It is my hope through passing this resolution we will send a strong message to college campuses across the country that restrictions on freedom of speech, thought and expression are inherently at odds with the rights guaranteed by our Constitution. Protecting the rights granted by the Constitution is of utmost importance to me. As a Vietnam-era v
The Importance of Small Businesses
The American Dream is built on an individual’s ability to become entrepreneurs, take risks and build a small business that can thrive and grow. As we celebrate National Small Business Week, and as a former small business owner myself, I am aware of the many challenges these entrepreneurs face on a daily basis. It is estimated that 99 percent of all businesses with employees in the United States are small businesses, which further underscores their importance to our economy. That’s exactly why I make it a priority to visit small businesses across the First District of Tennessee to hear directly about their successes and challenges. Did you know there are more than 29 million small businesses in the United States responsible for creating 63 percent of new jobs? According to the U.S. Small Business Administration, Tennessee small businesses employed 1.1 million people in 2014 and saw a 5 percent increase in employment in 2016. Every year we have an opportunity to celebrate the role s
Roe Statement on the American Health Care Act
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Rep. Phil Roe, M.D. (R-Tenn.) released the following statement on the passage of the American Health Care Act (AHCA) through the House of Representatives: “This bill has been years in the making, and I am proud to support it. As a doctor for over 30 years, I ran for Congress because I wanted to ensure Tennesseans have access to the quality health care they deserve. This plan will dismantle Obamacare and replace it with patient-centered, free-market reforms. In stark contrast to Obamacare, the AHCA wasn’t developed by cutting backroom sweetheart deals with every special interest group that is invested in our health care system. We put patients first – they are our only interest. “There is no question patients are in dire straits under Obamacare. One-third of the counties in my district have zero options to purchase health insurance next year. For the counties that do have an insurer, many only have one option and costs are spiraling. In 2016, premiu
Roe and Members of Congress Send Letter to Secretary of Labor Regarding Fiduciary Rule
Congressman Phil Roe, M.D. (R-TN) led 123 Members of Congress in writing to Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta to encourage the permanent delay of the Department’s Fiduciary Rule. On April 7, 2017, the department, under Acting Secretary Edward Hugler, delayed implementation of the fiduciary rule until June 9, 2017, when it is currently scheduled to be fully implemented. Their action came in response to President Trump’s February 3 presidential memorandum, which directed the department to review the effects of the rule. In the last Congress, Congressman Roe sponsored H.J.Res. 88, a Congressional Review Act resolution that would have overturned the fiduciary rule. The legislation passed both the House and Senate but was vetoed by President Obama. In addition, while serving as chair of the Education and Workforce Subcommittee on Health, Employment, Labor, and Pensions, the subcommittee held numerous oversight hearings and conducted oversight about the implementation of the rule.
