News from Representative Tom Emmer

Dear Friend,

Residents of a Congressional District send their representatives to Washington to address issues most important to them, their families, their businesses, and their communities. This Congress, however, has been unlike any other I have served.

Over the last two months, Congress has been consumed by impeachment.

In some respects, this investigation seems to be politics as usual, as House Democrats have filed articles of impeachment every single year President Trump has been in office. In fact, the October vote on impeachment was the first in American history to take place without a single vote of bipartisan support. Unfortunately, these last few weeks have brought about new methods and standards which will forever impact the way a mechanism like impeachment can be used against a sitting head of state.

The proceedings are in fact historic, but for all the wrong reasons. What’s more, every moment spent on impeachment is an opportunity lost to address the many issues facing thousands of Minnesotans and millions of Americans. 

An unratified United States Mexico Canada Agreement (USMCA) - which will level the playing field for dairy farmers and communities like the ones in Stearns County – waits on Speaker Pelosi's desk as she calculates the House’s next move against the President. Minnesotans continue to make frequent visits to Canada for affordable medication because Congress cannot dedicate the time it should to address the rising cost of prescription drugs. And hundreds of Minnesota jobs and thousands of dollars in medical research and development remain at risk if the Medical Device Tax and the Health Insurance Tax go into effect at the end of the year. Not to mention a bill to fund the federal government before December 21st…

Efforts to undermine a duly elected president are not only detrimental to the fabric of our nation, they take away from Congress’ ability to support the growth and opportunity of every American.

As impeachment drags into yet another month, I remain committed to finding real solutions to some of our nation’s most pressing issues. I have introduced ten bills and co-sponsored over a hundred more, tackling issues like mental health, sexual assault, mortgage access, medical innovation and transportation.

I'll continue to do the work you've entrusted me with, but I rely on your input, I have hosted over a dozen town halls this year to try to take your priorities to Washington. My next town hall meeting is scheduled for Monday, December 2nd at 7 PM at the Delano City Hall. I hope to see many of you there to build on our productive discussions. 

If you have any questions, concerns or comments in the meantime, please feel free to call my Washington, D.C. office at 202-225-2331 or my District Office at 763-241-6848.
