U.S. Congressman Michael Burgess, M.D. to Attend Denton County Republican Party’s Lincoln-Reagan Event

Newly elected Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health, Congressman Michael Burgess, M. D., is confirmed to attend the Denton County Republican Party’s annual Lincoln-Reagan dinner on Saturday, March 4, 2017 at the D/FW Hyatt Regency Hotel.

Congressman Burgess currently serves on the prestigious House Energy and Commerce Committee where he is the Chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Health and sits on the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations and the Subcommittee on Digital Commerce and Consumer Protection. In addition, he is a member of the Rules Committee and the Helsinki Commission.

As of the 115th Congress, he is the most senior medical doctor, on both sides of the aisle, serving in the House of Representatives. Because of his medical background, he has been a strong advocate for health care legislation aimed at reducing health care costs, improving choices, reforming liability laws to put the needs of patients first, and ensuring there are enough doctors in the public and private sector to care for America’s patients and veterans. He has voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act over 50 times. He has played an important role in bipartisan efforts to reform the Food and Drug Administration.

During his time on Capitol Hill, he has earned a reputation as a problem-solver who seeks sensible solutions to the challenges Americans face and has received several awards including the Guardian of Small Business award by the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB); the Spirit of Enterprise award by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce; and the Taxpayer Hero award from the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste; among others. In 2013, he was named to Modern Healthcare’s 50 Most Influential Physician Executives and Leaders.

Dinner table sponsorships and individual tickets are available now by phoning 940-383-4446 or by registering online at www.dentongop.org   Individuals or businesses wishing to donate to the live or silent auctions should contact Republican Headquarters at the same phone number.
