Tom Graves Congress
Washington, D.C., U.S. Rep. Tom Graves issued the following statement after being sworn into the 116th Congress as the Representative for Georgia’s 14th Congressional District: “I’m honored to continue serving Northwest Georgia in the House of Representatives at this critical moment. Unfortunately, the 116th Congress begins under the cloud of a partial government shutdown.
The prosperity and security of the nation are taking a back seat to the Democratic Party’s political agenda. President Trump is asking for modest and reasonable funding to secure the border. This is normal and necessary. What’s not normal is the level of anti-Trump hysteria on the left. The first order of business in the new Congress should be to secure the border and open the government.
The president is willing to strike a deal, he just needs Democrats to put our country before politics.“House Democrats have also promised to pass burdensome new regulations, repeal President Trump’s tax cuts and slash military funding. I’ll fight their efforts every step of the way. Georgia families are experiencing a booming economy, and I will do everything in my power to protect and build on that success. The Democrats want us all to feel gloom and doom, but I believe their message is outshined by the reality of lower taxes and more jobs. Northwest Georgia is experiencing some of its brightest days in decades, and I intend to keep it that way.”
