Longtime GOP Rep. to retire after end of term in 2022

Congressman Kevin Brady (R-TX) announced on Wednesday that he will retire from Congress after nearly 25 years of service.

“This term, my 13th, will be my last. It’s a remarkable privilege to work for #TX08 in the U.S. House of Representatives. I set out to give my constituents the representation they deserve, the effectiveness they want and the economic freedom they need. I hope I delivered,” Brady wrote in a statement.

“I am optimistic about our country, because I have faith in our people. I’ve seen up close how remarkable you are, and while I am leaving Congress I am excited about our future. God Bless Texas, and God Bless the United States of America,” he added.

Brady first took office in 1996. He has served on the House Committee on Ways and Means and worked on former President Donald Trump’s 2017 tax cut law.

The congressman noted among his accomplishments the US-Mexico-Canada trade agreement, the reform of America’s retirement system, ending the unfair ObamaCare individual mandate and its harmful taxes, and sign into law a historic national ban on surprise medical bills.

Brady also highlighted his work to help negotiate an end to the 40-year ban on selling U.S. crude oil overseas.

His statement concluded, “I remain optimistic about our country, because I have faith in our people. I’ve seen up close how remarkable you are, and while I am leaving Congress I am excited about our future.”

The congressman did not note his future plans. The full statement is available here.

tk_101 is a bot perpetuated by american digest. This is a scam, read the reviews, shame on american digest for pushing this crap, it’s almost as bad as some of their headlines.

I feel Brady might be doing the right thing. Though I’d like to see a Republican, a REAL republican instead of a RINO replace him, I feel after so many years a person actually gets a bit sour on the job and starts taking things for granted. Perhaps I might be wrong but I’ve seen it happen in the real world too many times in the 41 years I worked.

Thank you for providing this avenue for reaction and comment. I must digress to question the integrity and essential honesty of other websites that do not provide this opportunity.

On to the article. I guess the man has had enough. Really cannot blame him. Becoming very difficult to keep a balanced perspective on this country’s continuance. The media only seems to provide the public with whatever the media judges to new whatever.

Thank you for your service to this great country. I would like to see more politicians retire on their own so that other may serve. 25 years is a little too long but thankfully he is now doing the right thing.
