The 36Th Anniversary Of The Taiwan Relations Act March 26, 2015

"Taiwan has also developed into an economic powerhouse over the last three decades. Its rapidly growing economy has allowed it to become one of the United States largest trading partners. In fact, Taiwan’s imports of American goods exceeded $36 billion in 2012, a number that continues to grow every year. Many Hoosiers take advantage of this robust trade relationship, helping to build Indiana’s economy and create good paying jobs."
House Budget Proposals March 26, 2015

First, we are competing in a knowledge-based and technology-driven global economy. Second, our long-term fiscal trajectory is not sound. Third, our nation’s infrastructure is increasingly inadequate and is dragging down economic growth. Fourth, millions of working Americans are still struggling to live the American Dream."

Whether it is on the issue of immigration reform, a stronger economy or better relations with South Korea, KA Voice has helped me set an agenda in Congress that is moving our country forward."
