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

Protecting Workers, Students and Small Businesses
Last May, the Department of Labor released their finalized overtime rule, a misguided regulation that is set to wreak havoc on employers throughout the state of Tennessee, particularly small businesses, nonprofits and schools. This rule, set to take effect December 1, would be particularly detrimental to Tennesseans, as the average annual wage is $41,300 in Tennessee. In my district, the median household income is even lower at $39,081. The Department’s proposed threshold for overtime is $47,476. That means well over half of the households in upper East Tennessee could be impacted by this ruling. My question to the Department of Labor is: if over half the workers in an area could be affected by a regulation, where will the money come from?  The answer is fairly obvious to anyone who has run a business or had to meet a payroll. To comply with the regulation, fewer full-time employees will be hired, and workers will be strictly limited in their hours. While the regulation may
Dr. Roe & Chairman Miller: VA Crisis Line Failures Indicative of Pervasive Culture of Unaccountability
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Rep. Phil Roe, M.D. (R-TN) and Chairman Jeff Miller (R-FL) sent a letter to VA Secretary McDonald regarding a recent Associated Press story alleging that employees of the VA’s crisis hotline routinely ask to leave early and rarely spend their time “engaged in productive activity.” The claims were made by the former director of the VA’s Veterans Crisis Line, Greg Hughes.   The letter, found here, requests an explanation from the secretary detailing how the VA plans to hold employees like those mentioned in the report accountable. “This is unbelievable, and I am outraged by the VA’s continued disregard for our nation’s heroes,” said Rep. Roe. “On one hand you have the VA’s Undersecretary for Health, Dr. David Shulkin, calling for an end to veteran suicide, and on the other you have call center operators ducking their responsibilities and collecting a paycheck while veterans suffer. The rhetoric you hear from the VA rarely matches rea
Manufacturing, Jobs & Economic Growth
Last Friday, October 7th, we observed Manufacturing Day. Despite the difficulties the manufacturing industry has faced over the last several years, manufacturing accounts for more than 8 percent of U.S. employment. The industry employed roughly 12 million Americans in 2013. According to the Economic Policy Institute, more than 45,000 Tennesseans in the First Congressional district are employed in the manufacturing industry. Statewide, more than 300,000 Tennesseans have jobs in the industry. There’s no question manufacturing is an important part of both Tennessee’s and the U.S. economy as a whole. That’s why I was proud to support Manufacturing Day by cosponsoring H.Con.Res 155, a resolution expressing support for the designation of the first Friday of October as Manufacturing Day. Since serving in Congress, I’ve had the opportunity to visit many manufacturers in and around Northeast Tennessee, and I’ve seen first-hand the good-paying jobs these employers bring to our region.
Obamacare is An Irreparable Disaster
This week brought more bad news for President Obama’s health care law. BlueCross BlueShield (BCBS) of Tennessee, the state’s largest insurer, announced they were pulling out of the exchanges in three Tennessee regions: Knoxville, Memphis and Nashville. BCBS provides coverage to roughly 83 percent of Tennesseans in the individual market, and roughly 131,000 across the state are losing their coverage because of this announcement. I find this deeply troubling, and I am working to find a solution for those affected by this change. As a physician, I believe every Tennessean should have access to quality, affordable health care, but Tennesseans are quickly getting priced out under the Affordable Care Act (ACA) – if they can find insurance at all. This announcement comes on the heels of steep premium increase requests approved by the state of Tennessee because the exchange is, according to the Tennessee Insurance Commissioner, “very near collapsing.” Unfortunately, every shortcomin
