|Info||Kevin Brady is serving his seventh term in Congress, representing the Eighth District of Texas in the U.S. House of Representatives. |
As a member of Congress, Brady has focused on international trade, technology, tax reform, and closing safe havens around the globe for criminals who flee American justice. He is best known as author of the Federal Sunset Act which would abolish obsolete agencies and eliminate duplication by placing an expiration date on every federal program where they must justify their existence to taxpayers or face elimination. He has a special interest in curing PPH, for now an incurable disease that strikes women and young children in growing numbers.
Congressman Brady was named to the House Ways & Means Committee for the 107th Congress. Considered by many to be one of the most powerful committees in Congress, the Ways & Means Committee has jurisdiction over all legislation relating to taxes, Medicare, and Social Security. Brady will serve on the Social Security and Select Revenue Measures Subcommittees. The future of the 8th Congressional District, and to a large extent the future of America, will be shaped by the critical issues that begin in the Ways & Means Committee.
