  • Agriculture

    I am proud to represent a large part of Georgia’s agricultural community. As Georgia’s top industry, the hard work of our farmers, ranchers, and producers significantly contributes to the safest, most abundant and most affordable food supply in the w...

  • Balancing the Budget

    The national debt is the single biggest threat to our national security and, unchecked, threatens to leave future generations to a life indebted to other countries. I believe it is time for Washington to finally take a cue from hard working families,...

  • Education

    Education decisions are best made by those closest to the student: families, teachers, communities in states. While the federal government’s involvement in elementary and secondary education is at an all-time high – including a four hundred percent i...

  • Energy

    I support an all-of-the-above energy approach. This begins with increasing domestic production of all forms of American energy. We must also promote new, clean and reliable sources of energy and cut bureaucratic red tape on American-made fuel and ene...

  • Health Care

    As the only pharmacist in Congress, I have seen the devastating impact of Obamacare first hand. It’s driving up costs, taking away choices and putting bureaucrats between patients and their health care providers. Improving health care in America begi...

    Our nation’s immigration system is broken. While our nation is one of immigrants, it is also one of law and illegal immigration continues to threaten our national security. The first step to reforming our immigration system is enforcing the laws we a...

  • Protecting Life

    As a healthcare professional, father, grandfather and Congressman, I strongly believe life starts at conception and support the sanctity of human life. More than 56 million innocent babies have been denied the right to life since the tragic and injud...

  • Second Amendment

    Our founding fathers believed so strongly in the right to bear arms that they ensured it in the Bill of Rights. I won’t back down when it comes to supporting the Second Amendment. Efforts to expand gun control and restrict access to legal gun use hav...

  • Tax Relief

    America’s antiquated and overly burdensome tax code is the greatest threat to economic opportunity in this country. My first act as a Member of Congress was to co-sponsor the Fair Tax, which would create a simpler, fairer and flatter tax code to buil...

  • Transportation

    Transportation infrastructure serves as the arteries for economic growth and job creation. With our prominent ports, airports, manufacturers, highways and tourists attractions, the First District is a transportation hub for the State of Georgia and t...

  • Veterans

    America’s veterans put everything on the line to protect our freedom and they deserve the best possible care when returning home. I am proud to represent so many veterans in the First District and their employment, benefits and health care are a top ...
