AMAC Across the Country: Town Hall with Rep. Adrian Smith

AMAC kicked off what promises to be a busy month of town hall meetings last Thursday, August 6, in Grand Island, Nebraska.  Forty AMAC members from Nebraska’s 3rd congressional district gathered to hear from Representative Adrian Smith (R-NE), who provided an overview of the 114th Congress’ accomplishments and current legislative priorities. For Rep. Smith, a member of the powerful House Ways & Means Committee, simplifying the tax code and responsibly tackling welfare and entitlement reform are paramount. The Congressman acknowledged that reforming the tax code and working to strengthen America’s welfare and entitlement programs are “heavy lifts” and “won’t happen overnight.” However, thanks to the leadership of Ways & Means Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI), Rep. Smith believes the House is making meaningful strides in these areas. AMAC members also had the opportunity to engage with Rep. Smith on a variety of topics. Questions focused on both domestic and foreign policy issues, including congressional efforts to defund Planned Parenthood, repeal and replace ObamaCare, restore accountability to the VA, and block President Obama’s controversial Iran deal.
