Biggs Elected House Freedom Caucus Chair

Congressman Andy Biggs meeting with constituents.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Arizona Congressman Andy Biggs has been elected by the House Freedom Caucus membership to be its next chairman. Biggs becomes the third Freedom Caucus chairman, following Congressmen Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows.

“I’m grateful for the trust of my colleagues in selecting me to serve as the next chairman of the House Freedom Caucus,” said Biggs in a press release. “The Freedom Caucus has revolutionized Capitol Hill because our members endeavor to keep our promises to the American people. Freedom Caucus members have shown that they will stand for principle over politics—every time. The House Freedom Caucus has created a national reputation by standing up for Americans who have felt that they didn’t have a voice in Congress. Great leaders like Jim Jordan and Mark Meadows have fostered a caucus that is a force for conservative principles, and I am thankful for their continued leadership and mentorship.”

Freedom Caucus member Congressman Jody Hice tweeted praise for Biggs, who he described as “a strong leader and compelling voice within the caucus.”

“We must fight against increased government spending and for a balanced budget. We must fight for border security and the elimination of all loopholes that incentivize illegal entry into this nation. We must work to lower health care costs and improve access and quality for all Americans.” Biggs concluded, “We will stand with President Trump as he keeps his promises to the American people. And we will never forget the people who sent us to Congress to work on their behalf.”

  1. I’m not interested in any politician’s “promises to the American people”.
    I am interested in them honoring their sworn oaths of fidelity to our Constitution.
    Standing for “principle over politics” should mean adhering to the very strict constraints written into that sacred document; but, according to the statement, that’s not the case at all.

    Federal government involvement in health care; subsidies for food, housing, and heaven knows what all else; Social Security; and most everything else our Congress critters write legislation for; is unconstitutional.

    Like so much of our Constitution, “general Welfare” has been perverted to include whatever politicians want it to mean. Face it, that’s how they gain power, treasure, (and, sadly, but not surprisingly) votes.
    Article 1 Section 8, though, enumerates explicitly what “general Welfare” actually means: Weights and measures standards are allowed, as are uniform bankruptcy laws, postal service, and the right for us to profit “for limited Times” from our patented and copyrighted works.

    To enjoy the “Blessings of Liberty” our founders envisioned for us, we’d need to find a way to take back our Constitution. Sadly, I don’t think we can find that many honorable politicians.
