Wrenzie and I had the honor of welcoming Vice President Mike Pence and Second Lady Karen Pence to Myrtle Beach this weekend! It was great to spend time with our Vice President in the Seventh District. The below picture is of Wrenzie and I right after Airforce 2 touched down. 

 

 
 

Six Months Later 

 
  On December 22, 2017, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act became the law of the land! What does six months of tax reform look like?
  • One million new jobs
  • Lowest unemployment rate in 18 years
  • Increased paychecks for hardworking Americans
  • Small business optimism at an all-time high
  • More job openings than job seekers 
The impact this legislation has had in just six short months is phenomenal- our economy is booming. Republican pro-growth policies have restored opportunity in this country, and we are just getting started!

Raising Awareness for Alzheimer's Disease

 
  Alzheimer’s is a terrible disease and the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. With over five million Americans currently living with Alzheimer’s, we must ensure that those battling this debilitating disease have access to a comprehensive care plan. That is why I am a proud cosponsor of H.R. 4256, the BOLD (Building Our Largest Dementia) infrastructure for Alzheimer's Act. This bill implements effective Alzheimer’s interventions focused on early detection and diagnosis as well as preventing avoidable hospitalization. I am proud to support the Alzheimer’s community and will continue my work to help people overcome this terrible disease.
