Rep. Lloyd Doggett (District 35): “The master of distraction is at it again. Caught up in the swirl of misconduct surrounding the Trump family, he issues yet another ban to change the subject … We should honor and protect all, no matter their gender, who risk their lives to defend our freedoms.”

The Democrats, led by Reps. Barbara Lee (Calif.), Michelle Lujan Grisham (N.M.), Ted Deutch (Fla.) and Lloyd Doggett (Texas), want Price to reveal who in the administration dictated the cut and whether officials weighed “the burden and adverse impacts” on both the teenagers receiving TPPP services and the health professionals providing them. The economic effect on local communities, the lawmakers suggested, should not be ignored.
U.S. Representatives Lloyd Doggett (TX) and Mark Pocan (WI) led 16 House Democrats in calling on the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) to require multinational corporations to disclose meaningful country-by-country reporting information in their public financial statements. Requiring the information would help strengthen disclosure and efficiency in corporate financial statements, while protecting investors, policymakers, and the American public.
Kearns was one of about a dozen people who spoke at a forum hosted by U.S. Representative Lloyd Doggett, a liberal Democrat from Austin. Doggett probably doesn’t need convincing but the delay in a Senate vote has given opponents an opportunity to mount more resistance to the legislation. Doggett billed the event as a Medicaid town hall.
Re: “Americans pay for research, can’t afford resulting drugs,” Lloyd Doggett, Other Views, June 7:
You laser focus in on the true vulnerable point: these Big Pharma corporations don’t plow their profits into research as their public statements claim. We pay the research bill, and I suspect they are working on ways to divert this research money into more “rewards for managerial effectiveness.” I applaud your stand and your commitment to your constituents. I only wish that I were in your district, rather than next door in District 21, whose representative unfortunately holds the opposite view.
