Capitol Report: Keeping a Promise

by Congressman Sam Graves

We’ve heard the promise many times since 2008: “If you like your health insurance plan, you can keep it.” In fact, we’ve heard it at least 29 times according to one report.

However, it turns out that if you like your health insurance plan, you aren’t necessarily able to keep it because it may not comply with the regulations set out in Obamacare. In light of

Capitol Report: Passing a Bipartisan Water Resources Bill

by Congressman Sam Graves

Last week, the House of Representatives passed legislation called the Water Resources Reform and Development Act (WRRDA) by a near unanimous vote of 417-3. This bill will authorize the key missions of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, including navigation and flood prevention projects.

Having efficient water infrastructure is critical to a healthy economy. Passing WRRDA means jobs, trade, competitiveness, and economic development for Missouri and

Confronting Our Debt Crisis

by Congressman Sam Graves

The government shutdown may be behind us, but our nation’s fiscal woes remain in front of us. The deal that was agreed to last week does nothing to deal with our out-of-control spending or reduce our tremendous debt. Instead, all it does is guarantee more borrowing.

James Madison once said, “I go on the principle that a public debt is a public curse.” But a lot

Capitol Report: Working Toward a Solution

by Congressman Sam Graves

It’s been a long couple weeks in Washington as Congress and the White House seek a solution that would fully end the government shutdown. In the meantime, the House of Representatives has worked in a bipartisan manner to pass legislation that would fund and reopen key priorities and agencies in the interim.

For instance, on Oct. 2 we passed a resolution to fund cancer research at

Capitol Report: Extremely Unfortunate Shutdown

by Congressman Sam Graves

As I write, our government is mired in the midst of a shutdown for the first time since 1996. Congress’ inability to reach an agreement to keep the government open is extremely unfortunate as it personally affects so many Americans.

Here in the House, we’re working to find agreement to end this shutdown. As we continue to seek such an agreement, we’ve passed a series of

Capitol Report: Honoring Our Veterans

by Congressman Sam Graves

This past week, our nation commemorated the 12th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. We must always keep alive the memory of those we lost, and recall the heroic acts of valor that occurred that day, as firefighters and office workers, police officers and tourists, all worked together to save lives and comfort a nation. We must also thank the servicemen and women

Capitol Report: Taking Care of Our Veterans

by Congressman Sam Graves

I’m committed to making sure that we take care of those at home who have protected and fought for our freedom abroad. It’s a commitment we made and a commitment we must keep. That’s why I was proud to support several veterans-related bills in this session of Congress.

The Improving Job Opportunities for Veterans Act (HR 1412) would increase the number of jobs available to veterans

Capitol Report: Listening is Key

by Congressman Sam Graves

John Marshall, the longest serving Supreme Court Justice in history, once noted that, “To listen well is as powerful a means of communication and influence as to talk well.” Indeed, throughout my time in Congress, I have believed you can learn a lot more by listening.

That’s why I enjoyed traveling the Sixth Congressional District throughout the month of August. At every stop, dozens of people

Capitol Report: Making Government Leaner

by Congressman Sam Graves

A candidate vying to be president of the United States once said: “For three long years I have been going up and down this country preaching that government – federal, state and local – costs too much… we must abolish useless offices. We must eliminate unnecessary functions of government. We must consolidate subdivisions of government and, like the private citizens, give up luxuries which we can
