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 Applauds Funding for Appalachian Regional Commission
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Rep. Phil Roe, M.D. (R-Tenn.) released the following statement after the House Appropriations Committee approved the fiscal year 2018 Energy and Water Development Appropriations Act on a voice vote, which included $130 million in funding the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC): “I am very proud the House Appropriations Committee approved a bill that includes important funding for the ARC, an organization that does a great deal of good in East Tennessee and rural Appalachia. Earlier this year, I led 14 of my bipartisan colleagues in writing a letter to express my support for continued funding for the ARC. I applaud the Appropriations Committee, including Subcommittee Chairman Mike Simpson and full Committee Chairman Rodney Frelinghuysen, for prioritizing this important program, and I look forward to the full House’s consideration of this bill.” Note: You can read the letter here.
Roe Supports Bill to Provide Largest Troop Pay Raise in Eight Years
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Rep. Phil Roe, M.D. (R-Tenn.) released the following statement after the House passed the Fiscal Year 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) by a vote of 344 to 81:   “As long as I have the privilege of serving in Congress, I will work to ensure the men and women who serve in uniform have the best equipment and training in the world. I take this duty very seriously because the safety and readiness of our servicemembers is of the utmost importance to me. Our Armed Forces are telling us that previous budgets left them stretched thin, so I’m pleased this year's NDAA provides a 10 percent increase in defense spending, and I'm incredibly proud it includes the largest troop pay increase in eight years. This is the least Congress can do for the men, women and their families who make tremendous sacrifices to keep us safe and free, and I'm glad to support this legislation.”
Roe Leads Bipartisan House Effort to Repeal the IPAB
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Yesterday, Drs. Phil Roe, M.D. (R-Tenn.) and Raul Ruiz, M.D. (D-CA) led a bipartisan press conference on the need to act quickly to repeal the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB). The Affordable Care Act offers a statutory path to repeal the IPAB utilizing “fast-track” procedures in the Senate, but that authority expires on August 15, 2017.   Roe released the following statement: “With the fast-track deadline of August 15 quickly approaching, it’s critical that both the House and Senate take this unique opportunity to repeal one of the worst parts of the ACA, the IPAB. The IPAB would be made up of 15 unelected, unaccountable board of bureaucrats that would be granted sweeping powers to ‘reduce the per capita rate of growth in Medicare spending.’ Unfortunately, these deep cuts would have to be made all in one year, and Congress has no oversight and no legal or administrative remedy, or power to object. I have consistently pushed for repealin
Combatting Human Trafficking One Step at a Time
Human trafficking is an appalling crime that impacts every region of our country, and its prevalence has been increasing. According to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the definition of human trafficking is “modern-day slavery” and “involves the use of force, fraud or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial sex act.” Did you know there are 20.9 million victims of human trafficking globally? The Federal Bureau of Investigation estimates this is the third-largest criminal activity in the world. This staggering statistic underscores the need for action. We must strengthen our laws to deter human trafficking, but we also must encourage vigilance to recognize the signs of human trafficking so we can free its victims. Human trafficking can come in different forms, and I encourage you to read how to recognize key indicators of human trafficking. If you or someone know needs help, or you would like to submit a tip, call the National Human Trafficking Hotline whic
