Washington, D.C. –Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) issued the following statement after Rep. Tom Price, M.D. (R-GA-06) was confirmed by the Senate as secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services:
“As Health and Human Services Secretary, I know Dr. Price will do a great job unwinding Obamacare’s mandates and taxes and implementing the healthcare reforms Congress passes, which will increase choice, drive down premiums and put patients first. It’s been an honor serving with Dr. Price in Congress, and I look forward to working with him in his new position, as we fight to rescue Georgians and all Americans from the disaster that is Obamacare.”
Washington, D.C. – Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) issued the following statement today after President Trump signed an executive order to halt the “fiduciary rule:”
“I applaud President Trump for preserving access to affordable financial advice for middle-class families. Saving for retirement, college and family emergencies is already challenging for most families, and the Obama administration’s ‘fiduciary rule’ would’ve made it harder. It created more paperwork and red tape for financial planners, which would’ve raised costs and limited access to sound financial advice, especially for those living in rural areas.”
Washington, D.C. – Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) today voted for and the House passed H.J. Res. 40, of which Rep. Graves is a cosponsor. The legislation repeals the Obama administration’s rule that requires the Social Security Administration to share information with the National Instant Criminal Background Check System for individuals who received Disability Insurance benefits or Supplemental Security Income and have a designated payee for their benefits. If allowed to go into effect, the rule would unnecessarily increase scrutiny of millions of law-abiding citizens and infringe on their Second Amendment rights.
“Every American has a constitutional right to keep and bear arms,” said Rep. Graves. “This misguided rule could restrict the rights of millions of Americans without due process, such as disabled veterans who are simply having a difficult time managing their finances. The Senate should act quickly to send this legislation to President Trump for his signature.”
