    Tags: Health Issues, Native American Affairs

    Congressman Markwayne Mullin (OK-2) continues to push the need for the federal government to remove Indian Health Service (IHS) from partisan funding fights. Mullin introduced H.R. 195, the Pay Our Doctors Act, to fund IHS for the next fiscal year. This bill will ensure that tribally-run hospitals and Urban Indian Clinics receive the funding they need to pay their doctors and keep their doors open. MSNBC’s Morning Joe: “Rep. Markwayne Mullin, R-Okla., is a member of the Cherokee Nation, and he d... Read more

    Today, members of the Congressional Western Caucus released statements rebuking the introduction of H.R.8, Speaker Pelosi's gun control bill: Chairman Paul Gosar (AZ-04): "It should come as no surprise that Speaker’s Pelosi’s first bill of the Congress attempts to infringe on the Second Amendment rights of the American people. A federal background check would not have prevented the Tucson shooting eight years ago. Further, criminals don’t follow the law, so implementing universal background chec... Read more

    USA TODAY Our nation is in the midst of the deadliest drug crisis in history — a crisis fueled by opioids. More than 630,000 Americans have died from drug overdoses since the turn of the century. That means almost as many people have died from drugs in less than two decades as those who died in the Civil War. More than half of the deaths in 2016 involved opioids. This death toll is staggering, but the consequences of drugs are not limited just to the more than two million Americans who are addic... Read more

    https://bit.ly/2IqmkOs Doctors can’t fully treat a patient with only half of a medical record. Without access to crucial information in a patient’s medical record, such as a history of drug and alcohol misuse, doctors face difficulties safely treating their patients. My legislation, H.R. 3545, the Overdose Prevention and Patient Safety Act updates an outdated law to give doctors the whole story on their patient’s medical history. H.R. 3545 ensures that patients struggling with substance use diso... Read more

    Rep. Mullin: It's the end of the tax code as we know it (and I feel fine) Washington Examiner April 17, 2018 https://washex.am/2ER2glH Tuesday, April 17 is Tax Day. Typically, Tax Day falls on April 15. But since that day fell on a Sunday and the District of Columbia recognizes Emancipation Day on April 16, taxpayers received two extra days to file this year. But that doesn’t relieve many of us from the burdensome feelings of Tax Day. The weeks of preparation leading up to Tax Day are stressful ... Read more

    Posted in In the News on March 9, 2018 | Preview rr

    Fox News It is no secret that President Trump supports products being made in America. He is a strong advocate for bringing back the middle class by returning manufacturing jobs to the states.

On Thursday, President Trump announced a 25 percent tax on imported steel and a 10 percent tax on imported aluminum. As one can imagine, this ruffles feather... Read more
