Dear Friend,

Last week, I delivered the Weekly Republican Address highlighting Congress' achievements on behalf of the nation and the opportunities ahead in 2017.

We have much work ahead of us, but we are committed to working hard to do everything that we can to deliver more opportunities to Americans tomorrow than they have today.

Meeting with Rex Tillerson, Intended Secretary of State Nominee

Earlier this week, I met with Mr. Tillerson and learned more about his approach to serving as America’s top diplomat. Mr. Tillerson is an accomplished businessman and job creator who has a firm grasp on geopolitics, and I am confident in Chairman Corker’s ability to lead a fair and thorough confirmation process.


Meeting with Governor Rick Perry, Intended Secretary of Energy Nominee

I also had a thoughtful discussion with Governor Perry and appreciate the opportunity to speak with him about his approach to responsible energy production and achieving America’s energy independence. We discussed the importance of the Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) located in Colorado. NREL is instrumental in the advancement of the nation’s renewable energy and energy efficiency, and plays an important role in electrical grid modernization and protecting our grid from cybersecurity threats. Governor Perry is a proven leader who worked to bring jobs and economic growth to Texas, and I’m confident in his all-of-the-above energy strategy to lead the Department of Energy.


Colorado's Obamacare Exchange's Misuse of Federal Funds

A recent Denver Post article revealed that Colorado’s Obamacare exchange treated taxpayer dollars like monopoly money and now the American people are on the hook for its federal loan. Another example of an Obamacare failure, the Colorado exchange sheds light on a broken system built on lofty promises that was unsustainable and mismanaged from its inception.
