Dear ,

I hope you and your loved ones enjoyed Martin Luther King Jr. Day yesterday. Last week was eventful in Washington, D.C. Below, please find an update of my most recent work.

The U.S. Government Has a Spending Problem


Click here or on the image above to watch my speech.

Last week, I gave a speech on the House Floor outlining the consequences the federal government's spending problem will have on our children and grandchildren unless we tell the truth about the math, and the math will always win.

Current Congressional Budget Office models show that we're heading toward a structural cost of $1 trillion per year just on interest in the next ten years. When spending is factored in, our structural deficit increases to $2 trillion per year.

This is not a Republican or Democrat issue. Getting federal spending under control and passing fiscally responsible federal budgets are things we all should care about. If we do not get federal spending under control, it will be our children and grandchildren who ultimately pay the price. None of us want future generations to pay for the fiscal mistakes of previous generations.

Speaking at the Women in Retirement Conference


I enjoyed speaking at the Women in Retirement Conference in Litchfield Park to help women remain successful even after leaving the workforce. These women have worked hard to achieve their goals, and I talked about how my Retirement Protection Act can help them fight historic inflation by raising the yearly contribution limit for their savings accounts. 

Ensuring you and your family are able to meet your retirement goals in the midst of the inflation we are facing is a top priority of mine. It's why I sponsored this legislation, and it's why I will continue to fight for policies that make preparing for retirement easier.

Tax Tips


On Thursday, January 19th at 2:00 pm MST, the Taxpayer Advocate Service (TAS) will be hosting a Pre-Filing Season Awareness Event. At this event, our local taxpayer advocate will be teaching important tax tips to prevent tax return processing errors and refund delays. This event will be hosted online and can be joined HERE.

Celebrating the Life of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.


Yesterday, we celebrated the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Dr. King spent his life fighting for peace and equality for all Americans. I'm proud to honor his life and legacy.

I am greatly appreciative of the time you take out of your day to read my newsletter as well as provide thorough feedback. If you have any questions or are in need of assistance, please do not hesitate to contact my office.
