URGENT: We Need Your Opinion

We want to hear from you. Take the Official Gus Bilirakis Survey today!

Defending Your Right to Bear Arms

The God-given rights laid out in the Constitution are essential to not only individual liberty, but also our American way of life.

The Bill of Rights affirms that the Second Amendment—the right of the people to keep and bear arms—shall NOT be infringed upon, and this freedom cannot be taken away or threatened at any time. It’s our natural right as American citizens and we must not back down.

As a solid conservative, I will continue to stand up and defend our right to bear arms.

Making Our Senior Citizens a Priority

If you are a senior citizen living in Florida’s beautiful 12th District, you should know that I have your back. I’m watching like a hawk for any developments, trends, speeches, proposals, hearings or anything else that has to do with our senior citizens.

The two top issues for me are increasing access to top quality health care that is affordable for all, and ensuring the long-term viability of Social Security and Medicare.

I’m in Washington standing up for you in Florida, and I will continue to do so. You can count on me to be your conservative voice.

Will You Stand With Me?

Standing United with Our Allies

Iran continues to be an imminent threat to our closest ally in the Middle East, Israel. This rogue country has been given plenty of chances—they must be held accountable for their actions.

A threat to American allies is a threat to our own nation. Now is the time for us to present a united front against Iran and stand with Israel.

Our ally deserves our full support. The people of Israel deserve to know that we have their backs no matter what violence Iran throws their way.

Keeping Prescription Drug Prices in Check

Two things will help us keep prescription drug prices in check: innovation and competition. We are fortunate in the United States to have plenty of both.

U.S. pharmaceutical companies spend billions on research every year. We in Congress must make sure free market competition is present, and to incentivize where it isn’t.

We also will remove unnecessary regulatory burdens to:
• Clear the backlog of generic drugs waiting FDA approval
• Get new medicines to market faster
• Permit insurance companies and drug makers to work together to help lower costs

Next time you fill a prescription, remember I am working on this issue night and day. I will never back down from standing up for Florida’s best interests, and that means making the people of the 12th District a top priority in Washington.
