100 GOP lawmakers reintroducing conscience protection bill amid concerns about Biden’s HHS

Defending the conscience rights of healthcare providers should be of great interest to all Americans, and is of grave importance to me as a physician, especially in light of recent failures to do so by the Biden Administration.

Rep. Andy Harris, R-Md., is reintroducing conscience protection legislation, taking aim at the Biden administration's allegedly lax enforcement.

Harris Votes "No" on Build Back Better Act

This morning, I joined the bipartisan opposition to the Democrats’ socialist $4 trillion spending spree that includes the largest tax increase in American history, which will also add $367 billion to our national debt, according to the official Congressional Budget Office scoring.

At a time when inflation is out of control, gas prices are at record highs, our national debt is on the verge of eclipsing $30 trillion, and our Southern border is overrun, we shouldn’t be passing these reckless spending bills. Measures like this will make inflation worse, further raise gas and heating oil prices, bolster our national debt, incentivize illegal immigration, do nothing to address record opioid deaths, and fail to fund law enforcement. Instead, sadly the majority just continues to bankrupt the country and push policies rejected by voters in recent elections in Virginia and New Jersey.

Congressman Harris issued the following statement after voting no on the Build Back Better Act: "This morning, I joined the bipartisan opposition to the Democrats’ socialist $4 trillion spending spree that includes the largest tax increase in American history, which will also add $367 billion to o...

While Americans are paying the most at the pump in seven years, the Energy Secretary finds it comical to increase American oil production. She must forget that this administration is killing our net energy exporter status, and by the way they’re not done killing energy jobs just yet.

GOP Doctors Caucus warns Biden healthcare vaccine mandate could worsen patient care, labor shortages

Proud to lead my GOP Doctors Caucus colleagues in urging this administration to revise their vaccine mandate. It will lead to further supply crunches and short staffing issues in all sectors, most alarmingly healthcare.

The congressional caucus of healthcare experts sent letters led by Rep. Andy Harris, R-Md., to Biden and CMS Administrator Chiquita Brooks-LaSure warning of the adverse affects a vaccine mandate might have on the healthcare industry.

Research shows that a majority of people who misused a prescription medication obtained it from a family member or friend.

Tomorrow, join Americans nationwide in clearing out homes of unneeded medication and bring it to a collection site near you.

The National Prescription Drug Take Back Day aims to provide a safe, convenient, and anonymous means of disposing of prescription drugs, while also educating the general public about the potential for abuse and medications.

How can you object to censoring Gosar. It tells the world you are OK with members of the House posting about killing one of your own members. It's not a joke, but it's aligned with the rest of your embarrassment of our District. You have no morals!
Hopefully, Rep Harris will vote to censure Rep Gosar since he is familiar with death threats - A Howard County man who threatened to kill U.S. Rep. Andy Harris...has been sentenced to serve eight consecutive weekends in jail and six months of home confinement.
I'm still waiting for your comment about how safe and secure Cambridge has been made by the mayor you endorsed and congratulated.

NO, NO, NO. NO! The Feds have already all but bankrupted this country. We cannot allow them to bankrupt the rest of us!!! This cannot stand!!!!!
Great maps today on the Baltimore Sun website of the proposed revisions to districts. I favor the 4th version, which makes the First District the Eastern Shore and Harford County! True Andy Harris Country!
I am sure Andy Harris will be one of the first to post pictures of himself at ribbon cuttings of projects that are completed with money he voted no to.
Rep. Harris I have serious concerns over the amount of crime being conducted by those here illegally. Can you advise if Congress is attempting to hold those members of the current Administration that are responsible for their entry into America,, criminally complicit for these crimes?
party divisions are killing USA
Rep. Harris Please Consider this Request. From the floor of Congress introduce a Bill , to have a National Parents Day declared.
Joe Biden will not notice a near 50% increase in gas prices or a 20% increase that Americans are paying to heat their homes, but these steep prices have real-life ramifications for the majority of Americans. And the double-digit price increases for pork, beef, and eggs might be celebrated by the Green New Deal proponents, but the extra costs are making it harder and harder for families to get by. Americans are facing an inflation squeeze that will only grow worse as prices continue to rise into the end of the year. The natural gas tax Democrats are pushing will mean higher costs to heat your home. Their drilling moratorium will squeeze supply further and drive prices at the pump higher. Their tax increases and anti-work policies drive ever-more supply chain disruptions and shortages and will bring local businesses to the brink. It’s time the Biden administration, and the few House Democrats left with a sense of reality, to take a hard look at the challenges around the country and work with Republicans to fix them.
“MODERATE” JOE BIDEN BECOMES A SOCIALIST TYRANT As a U.S. Senator, Joe Biden was known as a political moderate. When he ran for president in 2020, he portrayed himself as the Democrat’s middle-of-the-road candidate, a man who could work with both sides of the aisle and unite Americans of all political persuasions. However, when being a moderate wasn’t helping his chances of winning the nomination, candidate Biden quickly switched horses in mid-stream, adopting the far-left platform of socialist Bernie Sanders. This move won him the Democrat’s nomination and made him beholden to the radical left-wing of the Democrat Party. It also called into question Joe Biden’s judgment, a subject tackled quite capably by award-winning journalist, Caroline Glick in her column “Joe Biden’s catastrophic judgment.” For example, concerning his judgment in handling the U.S. exit from Afghanistan, Ms. Glick observed Biden’s judgment “was never reasoned or fact-based” and he “was catastrophically wrong.” She also makes the equally valid point that once the president adopts a position “he is unwilling to listen to counterargument” and “he will not rethink his choices or positions, even after they have failed.” Although Ms. Glick’s comments were directed at the president’s catastrophic handling of foreign affairs, her insights apply just as directly to his domestic socialist agenda, an agenda he pig-headedly adheres to even as it proves to be as much a disaster as the Afghanistan bug-out. In foreign affairs, Biden has proven to be a bumbling incompetent. On the home front, he has become a socialist tyrant in the mold of Hugo Chavez. We warned this would happen in our book WE DIDN’T FIGHT FOR SOCIALISM: America’s Veterans Speak Up. In this book, we laid out the socialist agenda President Biden would inflict on our country point by point. To date, he has checked every box on our list. We warned how in socialist countries government agencies are weaponized and used to suppress citizen dissent. True to form, Joe Biden and his Attorney General, Merrick Garland, have directed the FBI to treat parents who oppose the teaching of Critical Race Theory (CRT) as domestic terrorists. As a result, this once highly-respected agency is now viewed by many Americans as a bunch of jackbooted thugs. In addition to weaponizing the FBI, the president has proposed banks be required to report citizens who spend more than $600 to the IRS so the government can monitor their spending. We warned how in socialist countries out-of-control government spending invariably leads to raging inflation and burdensome national debt. Not surprisingly, with Biden pushing a tax-and-spend socialist agenda, prices of essential goods and services have skyrocketed, if you can get them at all, and the national debt has soared to unprecedented levels. In spite of this and proving the accuracy of Caroline Glick’s comments, President Biden refuses to scrap his misnamed $3.5 trillion infrastructure bill, a bill even moderate Democrats reject. We warned that in socialist countries, the work ethic is replaced by an entitlement mentality in which people who are perfectly capable of working instead choose to remain idle and expect the government to provide for all their needs. With Biden pushing a socialist agenda in which Americans of prime working age are paid “stimulus” dollars as part of the misnamed American Rescue Act, people are choosing to stay home rather than work. The president’s socialist policies have created the unprecedented phenomenon known as the “great walkout” in which working-age citizens are simply walking off their jobs and staying home. America is feeling the pain of this problem in every sector of our economy.
