Ways & Means Committee
ways_and_means_012smallestMember, Ways and Means Committee

Chairman, Subcommittee on Oversight 

Ways and Means is the oldest and most prestigious Committee in Congress. It is responsible for some of the most important issues faced by Congress: tax, trade and tariff, Social Security, Medicare, as well as unemployment benefits, enforcement of child support laws, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), foster care and adoption programs. 

The Oversight Subcommittee, which I chair, conducts oversight of all programs within the Jurisdiction of the Full Ways and Means Committee.  We have conducted hearings to oversee the activities of the Internal Revenue Service and the Treasury Department, charitable organizations who are given special tax exemption under the Internal Revenue Code, and the administration of the Medicare program.
