USA TODAY: Thank Republicans for leading the charge against the opioid crisis: Kevin McCarthy

| Posted in In the News

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 HILL: Doctors need the whole picture on opioid addiction

| Posted in In the News

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 My legislation, H.R. 3545, the Overdose Prevention and Patient Safety Act updates an outdated law to give doctors the whole story on...

| Posted in In the News

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 fr...

| Posted in In the News

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 o...

The War on Net Neutrality

| Posted in In the News

Recently, I’ve heard concerns from constituents about net neutrality. Some Oklahomans are fearful that the FCC under the Trump Administration will make their internet less free and open. This is simply untrue. Net neutrality is the idea that all internet traffic should be treated equally. This is the way the internet has always operated and thrived. By and large, there is no disagreement that we s...

Whatever you call it, the reality is that opioid addiction is tragically taking the lives of almost 100 Americans daily. The opioid epidemic is sweeping the nation and we cannot ignore it. It is a national problem. The ques...

FOX NEWS: When political correctness runs amok – erasing our history doesn't change it

| Posted in In the News

http://fxn.ws/2whkzQV The conversation happening in our nation in light of recent events is more about political correctness than the issue at hand. Neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and terrorists are bad people. The ideals of these groups are in opposition to everything our nation stands for and everything that holds true to our founding principles. Their hatred of people dissimilar to them is un-A...
