Congressman Hurt hears Bedford concerns on healthcare, govt.


More than a dozen people met with 5th District Congressman Robert Hurt on Wednesday in Bedford, hoping he can solve their issues when he goes back to Washington D.C. Anna Simpson said she likes healthcare reform, and doesn't want it repealed. "The affordability of healthcare, that it will not be repealed, because there are many people who have insurance that have it now that did not have it before, because they have been turned down for pre-existing conditions,” said Simpson. The economy is a concern for Assistant Bedford County Administrator Frank Rogers. "What happens locally to ...

Robert's Round-Up: Our Nation’s Veterans Deserve Recognition Befitting Of Their Sacrifice
As we commemorate Veterans Day this Friday, we remember with gratitude all those brave service members who, throughout American history, have courageously fought to preserve our freedoms. We gather as a nation to honor and pay tribute to those who have selflessly served, and I hope you will join me in thanking all of our veterans – as well as our troops both at home and abroad – who have given so much to defend this great nation. I look forward to attending Veterans Day programs in the Fifth District as I have each and every year that offer an opportunity to show our respect and commitment to veterans from our local communities, and I encourage you to seek out such events in your area. Over the past year, we have partnered with local veterans groups across the Fifth District to offer recognition to a group of veterans that has not always received the recognition they deserve – those who served in Vietnam. That conflict commenced 50 years ago, and while it was marked
Robert's Round-Up: The Affordable Care Act: More Costly Than Ever
Last week the Obama Administration confirmed that the Affordable Care Act continues to break one of its signature promises - that the law would in fact reduce the cost of health care for the American people. The Administration announced that insurance premiums in the federally- managed health exchanges would increase by an average of 25% for the mid-level benchmark plan in 2017. We have seen these costs grow in recent years, so this news is no surprise, nor was it unforeseeable when the law was debated and passed. We knew that government-knows-best rules and mandates would not in fact make health care less expensive nor achieve many of the other things the proponents promised. The Richmond Times-Dispatch reported that Virginia consumers will fare "relatively well" as it relates to these increases, and on a statistical basis that is certainly accurate. On average, Virginians will see a 10% premium increase for benchmark plans and an overall 19.5% average premium increase for all plans,
Robert's Round-Up: Giving Thanks For Our Nation’s Many Blessings
Thanksgiving is the uniquely American holiday when we gather together with family and friends to reflect on the tremendous blessings we have as Americans and show our gratitude for our loved ones, the bounty of our God-given resources, and the fortune of living in the most free and prosperous nation the world has ever known. This holiday, which began right in our backyard in 1619, is credited to a group of English settlers who arrived on the banks of the James River just north of Jamestown, Virginia and issued a charter stating that their arrival shall be observed yearly as a “day of thanksgiving.” Today, we celebrate that tradition with our friends and family, reflecting on all the things for which we are grateful and it my hope that each of you have a safe and enjoyable Thanksgiving. We must never forget the sacrifices that were made in the founding generation and the sacrifices that have continued to be made throughout the generations in order to preserve our way of lif
Robert's Round-Up: With A New Administration Comes A Chance For A New Start
Last Tuesday, more than 120 million Americans went to the polls to exercise their civic duty and right to vote and elect leaders in federal, state, and local governments. The American democratic republic continues to be a model for the world, and we are fortunate to see the power of government changes hands through a peaceful or orderly process after a hard-fought campaign. The people have chosen a new direction by electing Donald Trump to be the 45th President of the United States of America, and with this election comes significant new opportunities to adopt policies that make the lives of all Americans better. It is my hope that the new administration abides by one fundamental tenet – adherence to the rule of law and our constitutional system of government. Over the years, we have seen Republican and Democratic presidential administrations usurp more and more legislative power through their executive agencies. Likewise, over the years we have witnessed Republican and Democrat
