Congressman Kevin Brady

Congressman Kevin BradyKevin Brady was born in Vermillion, South Dakota, after his father returned from the Korean War to pursue a law degree. When he was twelve years old his father was killed in a courtroom shooting and his mother was left to raise five children by herself. ('All I am today I owe to my mom', he says. 'She raised us to be independent, optimistic, to give back to our community and to have faith in God.')

A four-sport athlete and student body president at Rapid City Central High School, Kevin worked his way through college at the University of South Dakota and today is a distinguished alumni. A chamber of commerce executive for 18 years in Rapid City, S.D., Beaumont, Texas and The Woodlands-South Montgomery County area, Kevin also served three terms in the Texas House of Representatives where he earned distinction as one of the Top Ten Legislators for family and children’s issues. In 1994 he was named one of Five Outstanding Young Texans. He is an original Hometown Hero of The Woodlands.

Kevin is Chairman of the House Ways & Means Committee, considered by many to be the most powerful committee in Congress because it handles all tax matters, Social Security, Medicare, trade, energy, health care and welfare. He is the chairman of the Health Subcommittee, focusing on ways to increase the quality of health care for all Americans, while keeping costs affordable. He is past chairman of the Trade Sub-Committee where he is considered one of America’s leading champions of trade – and has helped successfully pass sales agreements to level the playing field and find new customers for American companies competing overseas. He is also the second highest Republican on the Social Security Sub-Committee. Kevin is fighting to reform the tax code, prevent tax increases and preserve Social Security and Medicare for every generation, once and for all.

With the economy as the #1 issue on the minds of many Americans, Kevin is the top Republican in Congress on the Joint Economic Committee where he has championed free market solutions, opposed the stimulus, written legislation to reform the Federal Reserve Bank and published the original chart of President Obama’s new health care law. He is a Deputy Whip in the House leadership and a leader in the House Conservatives majority.

A member of Saints Simon & Jude Catholic Church, Kevin is a Paul Harris Fellow in Rotary Club. He is married to Cathy Patronella Brady, and they have two sons, Will and Sean."
