Brady Announces Subcommittee Leaders and Assignments for the 117th Congress

February 3, 2021 — Press Releases   

WASHINGTON – The top Republican on the House Ways and Means Committee Kevin Brady (R-TX) released the following statement as he announced the Subcommittee Republican Leaders and Subcommittee assignments for Republican Members of the Committee for the 117th Congress:

“Our caucus is ready to stop radical ideas that kill jobs and fight for policies that lift up all Americans. With these Subcommittee Republican Leaders and our membership in place, we will crush this virus and help workers, families, and small businesses rebuild the greatest economy in world history,” Leader Brady said. 

America’s economy reached record heights thanks to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. I look forward to continuing my work with Ranking Member Brady and all my Ways and Means colleagues to defend left-wing attacks against this historic tax relief for all Americans as we continue the important work of reopening and rebuilding our economy,” Subcommittee Leader Adrian Smith said.

 “I look forward to promoting fair trade policies that help American workers and businesses,” Buchanan said. “Leveling the playing field for Florida and the rest of the nation as well as increasing access to foreign markets is critical to growing the U.S. economy and creating good-paying jobs,” Subcommittee Leader Vern Buchanan said.

”Under Ranking Member Brady’s leadership, Ways and Means Republicans will continue fighting to replace destructive Obamacare policies with solutions that provide Americans with better care at lower prices, expand choice in the marketplace, and protect those with pre-existing conditions,” Subcommittee Leader Devin Nunes said. 

“The key to keeping the American Dream alive is to expand economic opportunity and empower workers, families, and small businesses to succeed. Ways and Means Republicans are committed to advancing policies aimed at defeating coronavirus, rebuilding our economy, and helping vulnerable children and families thrive. I’m honored to continue serving as Republican Leader on the Worker and Family Support Subcommittee, and I’m ready to get to work on commonsense solutions that make a real difference in people’s lives,” Subcommittee Leader Jackie Walorski said.

“Now more than ever do Americans need their elected representatives to stand up to the destructive economic policies of the radical left and hold the Biden Administration accountable as it enforces the tax code. I look forward to standing shoulder to shoulder with the patriots on the Oversight Subcommittee to fight for conservative tax policy that grows our economy, creates jobs, and provides opportunity for working men and women throughout America,” Subcommittee Leader Mike Kelly said.

“We are thrilled to join with this great roster of Ways and Means Republicans and look forward to continuing the hard work of responsibly preserving Social Security for future generations. This Congress, we will continue to put forward solutions that modernize the program, honor work, unleash our economy, and take care of our at-risk populations,” Subcommittee Leader Tom Reed said.

“As the Republican Leader on the House Budget Committee and member of the House Ways and Means Committee, I look forward to working alongside Ranking Member Brady and my Ways and Means colleagues on behalf of hardworking American families. Together we will defend against radical policies that cost jobs and weaken our economy while we stand up for America’s working class,” House Budget Committee Republican Leader Jason Smith said.
