May 5, 2024

Dear Floridian:

This week, the country witnessed violent and hateful anti-Israel protests on campuses all over the country, including in Florida. While I adamantly support students’ rights to free speech and to peacefully protest while expressing their viewpoints, threats and harassment against individuals of a specific religious faith is unacceptable. Antisemitism has no place in America.

I’m deeply concerned about how the federal government is pressuring financial institutions for data on Americans using purchase data terms like “America First,” “Trump,” and “MAGA.” I joined the Ways and Means Committee to address Biden’s Treasury Secretary Yellen regarding these concerning surveillance practices targeting Americans based on their political beliefs. 

I also joined the Weaponization subcommittee to expose the Biden White House’s coercion of Amazon. The evidence suggests a clear attempt by the federal government to manipulate private entities for political gain.

Lastly, it was an honor to host the FL-17 Service Academy Fair this week and address our district’s young leaders who are interested in becoming future military leaders.

Joining The Ways and Means Committee to Examine Biden’s Treasury Secretary on Americans’ Data Privacy

At the Ways and Means Committee, I addressed Biden’s Treasury Secretary Yellen regarding FINCEN’s concerning surveillance practices targeting conservative Trump supporters. It’s deeply troubling that the federal government is pressuring financial institutions for data using terms like “America First,” “Trump,” and “MAGA.” This intrusion into Americans’ private financial data based on political beliefs is unacceptable. If the government seeks this information, it must follow proper legal procedures and obtain a warrant. We need to stand firm in defending Americans’ privacy rights and ensuring accountability in government actions.

Joining the Weaponization Subcommittee to Discuss the Biden White House’s Coercion of Amazon

I joined the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government to expose troubling revelations: Biden’s White House officials have been exerting undue pressure on Amazon, by coercing the tech giant to conform to political agendas. This revelation not only raises serious questions about governmental overreach, but also highlights the concerning erosion of corporate independence. Despite the denials from the administration, evidence suggests a clear attempt to manipulate private entities for political gain.This alarming behavior cannot be swept under the rug. As your representative, it’s my duty to ensure transparency and accountability in government actions.

Hosting the FL-17 Service Academy Fair

I hosted the FL-17 Service Academy Fair this weekend, where students from across our district gathered to explore opportunities for service to our nation. As your representative and as a former Army officer, witnessing the enthusiasm and dedication of our young leaders to our country was truly inspiring. I extend my gratitude to the service academy representatives, Senator Rick Scott’s team, and the Sarasota Military Academy for their contributions to this event. I look forward to soon nominating a class of impressive students to our nation’s service academies!

Congressman Greg Stuebe April 21, 2024

April 21, 2024

Dear Floridian:

This weekend, I supported sanctions on Iran and additional security assistance for our greatest ally in the Middle East, Israel, in their fight against terror. To this day there are still five American hostages in captivity, and we must ensure Israel has the tools to combat Iran, eradicate Hamas, and succeed in bringing every hostage home. House leadership also brought forth multiple foreign aid packages that provided additional funds for Ukraine, Taiwan, and more. I opposed these bills. If we’re going to approve an additional $100 billion dollars in foreign aid – especially while our southern border remains wide open – it needs to benefit Americans and America’s national security interests.

Iran is clearly emboldened by the Biden administration’s weakness. For too long, Iran has utilized proxy forces to execute their terror agenda in the region. This week, I introduced the Iranian Terror Prevention Act, alongside 59 of my colleagues. This crucial legislation aims to fully sanction 11 Iranian proxy organizations as Foreign Terrorist Organizations.

My legislation, the Preserving America’s Interests and Security in Trade Act, passed out of committee this week. America’s trade programs should align with our national security and advance our foreign policy goals. The essential reforms included in my bill will help ensure that the U.S. uses GSP to counter the growing aggression of countries like China, Iran, Russia, and North Korea.

Supporting Security Assistance for Israel, While Opposing Other Foreign Aid Bills

This weekend, I supported sanctions on Iran and $26 billion dollars of security assistance for our greatest ally in the Middle East, Israel, in their fight against terror. The package replenishes the Iron Dome and David’s Sling systems, as well as procures defensive weapons, artillery, and munitions. Additionally, the package helps the U.S. military restock the defense articles we supplied to Israel. We must ensure Israel has the tools to combat Iran, eradicate Hamas, and that we can succeed in bringing every hostage home. Aside from the Israel security legislation, House leadership brought multiple foreign aid packages to the House floor to fund Ukraine, Taiwan, and more. I opposed these bills. We’ve already sent over $112 billion dollars to Ukraine with zero accountability on how it was spent. We are $34 trillion in debt and we can’t continue sending money all over the world. If we’re going to approve $100 billion dollars, it needs to benefit Americans and America’s national security interests.

Introducing The Iranian Terror Prevention Act

I introduced the Iranian Terror Prevention Act, alongside 59 of my colleagues. This crucial legislation aims to fully sanction 11 Iranian proxy organizations as foreign terrorist organizations. For too long, Iran has utilized proxy forces to execute their terror agenda in the region, with American blood on their hands dating back decades. In addition to the unprecedented attack directly from Iran on Israel, we’ve seen ramped up, repeated proxy attacks on U.S. troops and our other allies in the Middle East. Iran is clearly emboldened by the Biden administration’s weakness. Washington has failed to designate most of the Iranian-backed militias as Foreign Terrorist Organizations. No more excuses. My legislation takes urgent, necessary actions to fully sanction these terrorist groups who hate our country and ensure the full weight of the Foreign Terrorist Organization designation is harshly felt. It’s time to take bold action against these threats and ensure the safety of Americans and our allies.

Advancing the Preserving America’s Interests and Security in Trade Act

I’m excited to share that my legislation, the Preserving America’s Interests and Security in Trade Act, has advanced as a provision in H.R. 7986, The Generalized System Preferences Reform Act. The Committee on Ways and Means recently approved this bill, marking a significant step forward. This legislation is critical as it aims to better align the Generalized System of Preferences (GSP) trade program with America’s national security interests. By adjusting beneficiary country designations under the GSP, we strengthen our ability to counter countries deepening economic, diplomatic, and military ties with our adversaries, and those undermining U.S. foreign policy. These reforms are essential in ensuring that the U.S. effectively employs the GSP to confront the growing aggression of countries like China, Iran, Russia, and North Korea.

Congressman Greg Stuebe April 14, 2024

April 14, 2024

Dear Floridian:

Biden’s weakness has given billions to Iran to launch attacks on US Soldiers and now Israel. All their military capability should be destroyed and severe economic sanctions put back in place. The Iranians were broke when Trump left office and now they are enriched, empowered and emboldened. Israel should respond militarily as they see appropriate and finish cleaning Hamas out of Gaza.

This week in Washington, I staunchly opposed H.R. 7888 Reforming Intelligence and Securing America Act to reauthorize FISA. This bill extends the warrantless surveillance powers of the intelligence agencies without adequate safeguards for our privacy rights, including a troubling provision granting special treatment to members of Congress. I will always stand for the civil liberties of all Americans.

My colleagues also joined me in denouncing the Biden Administration’s consideration of labeling changes on certain Israeli imports, which would greatly undermine our trade relationship with Israel. We sent the letter to President Biden emphasizing the need to uphold our unwavering support for Israel and combat antisemitism in all its forms.

I joined the Ways and Means Committee for a hearing discussing the success of President Trump’s 2017 tax cuts in helping Americans of all income levels. The contrast between Trump and Biden’s tax policies could not be clearer. The Trump tax cuts lifted six million people out of poverty and provided historic savings for millions of Americans. Meanwhile, Joe Biden wants to increase taxes by $7 trillion dollars on hard working Americans during a period of record inflation caused by Biden’s trillions in new spending!

Back in Florida, I’m pleased to report that, thanks to my office’s advocacy, as well as the advocacy of Senator Scott, Senator Rubio, and Rep. Donalds, FEMA’s unjust flood insurance increases for Hurricane Ian victims have been paused for 30 days. We will continue to work with Lee County during the next 30 days in an effort to have FEMA permanently reverse their decision.

Demanding Accountability Over Intel Agencies’ Spying Powers on Americans 

This week, we faced a critical decision in Congress regarding the reauthorization of surveillance powers under FISA. Reports show that the FBI abused their FISA authorities 278,000 times. I hold serious concerns about the constitutionality of FISA. This bill raised serious concerns as it allowed spying on Americans without a warrant. What’s more alarming is that Congress included a provision giving themselves special treatment, a “carve-out,” in this bill. The bill requires the FBI to notify and seek consent from Congress before invading the privacy of Congressmen. Unfortunately, this provision swayed many members of Congress to vote yes. However, I couldn’t support a bill that creates double standards and undermines the privacy rights of our constituents. I will keep fighting in Congress to uphold the privacy rights and civil liberties of all Americans.

Slamming the Biden Administration for Weighing “West Bank” Label on Certain Israeli Imports

I led a letter to President Biden alongside colleagues Neal Dunn (R-Fla.), Chuck Fleischmann (R-Tenn.), and Andy Ogles (R-Tenn.), to take a firm stance against potential changes in the labeling of certain Israeli imports. We spearheaded a letter condemning the Biden Administration’s consideration of this move, which would reverse President Trump’s policy. We expressed deep concerns about its potential economic repercussions for Israel and its capacity to embolden the antisemitic BDS Movement. It is imperative that we maintain unwavering support for Israel and safeguard our robust trade relationship. Additionally, it is crucial to recognize the historical significance of such actions, as they draw parallels to past instances of antisemitism. Furthermore, we must underscore the potential harm to both Israeli and American interests. Let’s stand united in support of Israel and steadfastly oppose any actions by the Biden Administration that could undermine our enduring partnership.

Securing a Pause on FEMA’s Decision to Hike Flood Insurance Premiums on Hurricane Ian Victims

Thanks to our relentless advocacy and the steadfast support of local officials, FEMA has decided to pause for 30 days to reassess their decision on flood insurance increases for Hurricane Ian victims in Lee County. It was unjust to blindside Southwest Floridians with these sudden hikes, putting millions of dollars at stake. As we enter this critical 30-day period, our team stands ready to support Lee County and ensure a favorable outcome. Together, we’re committed to securing justice and stability for our community as we continue to recover from Hurricane Ian.

March 17, 2024

Dear Floridian:

The House passed the Protecting Americans from Foreign Adversary Controlled Applications Act on Wednesday without my support. There is no doubt about it: TikTok is a dangerous app controlled by Chinese interests. However, the vague language of the bill raises troubling questions, particularly regarding potential executive branch overreach to shut down speech they don’t agree with. I opposed the bill to safeguard against the targeting of other social media companies and to protect our civil liberties.

I joined my colleagues in co-leading the Telehealth Modernization Act, a critical piece of legislation aimed at ensuring permanent access to telehealth services for Medicare beneficiaries, federally qualified health centers, and rural health clinics. This bill not only addresses the exponential growth of telehealth since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic but also recognizes its invaluable role as a complement, rather than a replacement, to in-person care. 

Don’t forget to mark your calendars for our upcoming Mobile Office Hours at Venice City Hall on Thursday, March 21st. Whether you need assistance with a federal agency or have questions about recent legislation, my staff will be there to assist you.

Opposing the TikTok Bill

The House passed the Protecting Americans from Foreign Adversary Controlled Applications Act without my support. There is no doubt about it: TikTok is a dangerous app controlled by Chinese interests. However, that does not mean the bill in front of the House was the appropriate solution to the national security threat TikTok imposes. The bill’s vague language, particularly in defining what constitutes being “subject to the direction or control of a foreign person or entity,” could lead to potential abuse by the executive branch. We shouldn’t give Biden’s DOJ any more power to shut down speech they don’t agree with, just eight months before the presidential election. Given the history of politically motivated accusations of false foreign affiliations, such as the Russia Hoax, I opposed the bill to safeguard against the targeting of other social media companies and to protect our civil liberties.

Co-leading Legislation to Ensure Permanent Telehealth for Seniors

I joined my colleagues in co-leading The Telehealth Modernization Act, a pivotal piece of legislation ensuring permanent access to telehealth services for Medicare beneficiaries while extending these essential flexibilities to federally qualified health centers and rural health clinics. This bill not only addresses the exponential growth of telehealth since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic but also recognizes its invaluable role as a complement, rather than a replacement, to in-person care. As your representative, I’ve heard that many in our district value the convenience and accessibility of telehealth services, especially our seniors and those residing in rural areas. By championing this legislation, we’re not only enhancing access to high-quality care but also providing certainty about the future of telehealth. It’s important to ensure that all Americans can benefit from timely healthcare regardless of their location or circumstances.

Steube said. ‘As a gun owner and a strong proponent of our Second Amendment rights, it’s appalling that a federal agency would ask private companies to spy on their customers conducting perfectly legal business transactions.

March 10, 2024

Dear Floridian,

This weekend marks the time of year when we continue the antiquated practice of changing our clocks. For years, I’ve been at the forefront of the movement to abolish this practice and instead embrace the concept of permanent Daylight Saving Time year-round. The benefits are abundant, ranging from bolstering our agriculture economy to enhancing public safety. Taking concrete steps towards this goal, I’ve championed bills both at the state and federal levels, aiming to preserve more of our cherished Florida sunshine throughout the year.

Additionally, I had the honor of hosting Ms. Gillian Kaye, an advocate for the safe return of all Hamas-held hostages, including her stepson Sagui Dekel-Chen. The presence of Ms. Kaye and Sagui’s father, Jonathan at the State of the Union this week was critical to help keep national and international attention on bringing all six remaining American hostages home.

I also was happy to vote in support of the Laken Riley Act this week. This legislation addresses illegal immigrant crime and further underscores our commitment to securing our borders to prevent such incidents in the future.

As a member of the Weaponization subcommittee, I participated in a hearing to expose concerning instances of massive government surveillance, particularly regarding the financial data of American citizens.

The legislation requires Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to issue detainers and take custody of illegal aliens who commit theft-related crimes, such as shoplifting, as defined by state and local law. The bill, aimed at equipping ICE and state governments with enhanced tools, addresses key immigration issues, including condemnation of President Biden’s weak border policies and empowering state Attorneys General to pursue injunctive relief. The passage of this act underscores a bipartisan commitment to restoring the rule of law and ensuring justice for victims like Laken Riley, whose tragic murder could have been prevented with effective immigration enforcement measures.

Exposing Massive Government Surveillance of Americans Financial Data

As a member of the Select Subcommittee on the Weaponization of the Federal Government, I joined a hearing where we examined troubling evidence of federal law enforcement agencies engaging in extensive surveillance of American citizens’ financial information, without proper justification. This surveillance, conducted by agencies such as the Treasury Department’s FinCEN and the FBI, appears to target individuals based on political and religious affiliations protected by the Constitution. As a member of this subcommittee, I am committed to ensuring transparency and accountability in our government agencies to protect the fundamental freedoms of all Americans.

The Webster Wire

Listening to Floridians

Dear Friends:

Last week, I along with several colleagues introduced legislation to declare the crisis at the southern border an invasion. This will help bolster the legal arguments of states in federal court. Secretary Mayorkas dereliction of duty to enforce our border laws have turned every state into a border state and are forcing state officials to take action to protect Americans. I’ve been to the Southern Border in Eagle Pass, Texas and seen the crisis firsthand. Thanks to President Biden’s failed border policies, there have been over 8 million illegal border crossings, with over 340 known individuals being on the terrorist watchlist. Make no mistake, this is an invasion of our nation’s borders. I have and will continue to advocate for and support policies and legislation that secures our borders and sensibly reforms our immigration laws.

 

Protecting Seniors Access to Medications

I recently co-sponsored H.R. 5526, the Seniors’ Access to Critical Medications Act of 2023 that would make permanent a waiver issued by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) during the COVID-19 public health emergency (PHE). This waiver allowed Medicare patients to receive critical medications by mail or allow caregivers and family members to obtain medications for them. A priority of mine is delivering on our promises to seniors and ensuring that they have the care they need. I am committed to protecting Medicare, keeping our promises to seniors, and preserving retirement security for every generation. 

Ensuring our Veterans the BEST Care

Serving veterans and ensuring they receive the care and benefits they earned is one of my top priorities. Last week, I co-sponsored H.R. 7434, the Better Examiner Standards and Transparency (BEST) for Veterans Act, which would ensure only licensed health care professionals conduct medical disability examinations (MDEs) on behalf of the VA. We must ensure licensed health care professionals are conducting MDEs that will allow for more accurate and efficient disability ratings. If you’re a veteran or know one in my district who needs assistance with their VA benefits, please contact me.

Following the Evidence

House Republicans are following the money, evidence, and proper procedures as we investigate President Biden’s influence peddling scheme. Last week, the House Committees on Oversight and Judiciary held a deposition of Hunter Biden as part of their ongoing impeachment inquiry into President Biden. The evidence uncovered in his testimony confirms much of the evidence we uncovered to date; however, parts of his testimony are inconsistent with other witnesses’ testimonies indicating the need for a public hearing. I applaud Oversight Chairman James Comer and Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan for releasing the transcript of Hunter Biden’s deposition before the committee to the public. Government accountability and transparency are among my top priorities, and I will continue doing my part to ensure that President Biden and his Administration are held accountable for not enforcing federal law and abusing their powers.

Seeing and Serving You

In the district, I spoke to the students of East Ridge High School who are participating in the Capitol Hill Challenge of Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA) Foundation. The SIFMA Foundation is dedicated to fostering knowledge and understanding of financial markets. I was welcomed by Susan Paul, Economics Teacher, and Principal Julie Robinson-Lueallen along with the students and other staff.

In Washington, I recently met the CEO of Community Healthcare Centers Inc., Dr. Debra Andree. We discussed their workforce development needs that are met through training programs, loan forgiveness, and eligible providers. I am pleased to support our nation’s community health centers and am working to ensure adequate funding for the essential services they provide to millions of Americans who access medical care through them. Central Florida is home to several community health centers, and I have visited multiple Health Centers throughout our region. While serving as Speaker of the Florida House, I led the State Legislature to establish one of the first community health centers as a pilot program in Central Florida. Since then, they have grown statewide and provide important healthcare services to Floridians. Thank you, Community Healthcare Centers Inc. for all the work you have done in our community!

Last week, while I was in Congressional committee meetings my legislative staff met with members of Florida’s chapter of the American Legion. They met with the Past Commander and Honor Guard Member of American Legion Post 347, Joan Suelter, and Alternate National Executive Committee Member, Jerry Brandt. In their meeting, they discussed several topics including my support for initiatives that provide our nation’s military members and veterans’ access to education, retraining and employment opportunities.

My legislative staff also met with VFW/Auxiliary Post 2093 members, Cate Manley, President of the Apopka Chamber of Commerce, member of the Orlando Mayor Veterans Advisory Board, and Mike Manley, Assistant Adjunct American Legion State of Florida. They discussed my co-sponsorship of H.R. 1282, the Major Richard Star Act, the need to expand mental health resources, and expanding research into whole health therapies and programs. The men and women of our military routinely face unique risks in the line of duty. I remain committed in ensuring our veterans receive the care and benefits they earned. We owe you a debt we can never repay.

Constituent Corner

A veteran from Sumter County received a favorable decision from the VA on a pending claim, but the funds had not been dispersed. Our office contacted the Defense Finance and Accounting Services who confirmed the necessary forms had been provided to the VA. Our office then reached out to the VA about receipt of the audit, and shortly after the funds were dispersed.

Constituent services is a critical element of our congressional office. The federal government is a massive operation, and my office is available if you ever need assistance in navigating the bureaucracy or cutting through red tape. We are here to serve you.

Dear Floridian:

Happy Birthday Florida! Today is a monumental day in Florida’s history, as we became the 27th state. We’re blessed to live in the free state of Florida! 

This week, the House passed a short term Continuing Resolution (CR) to continue funding the government at the same Biden-Schumer-Pelosi spending levels for another week. We must stop spending into oblivion. We are $34 trillion in debt and we must secure conservative policy priorities and shut down the invasion at the Southern border.

I sent a letter to Secretary Mayorkas on Friday demanding information about the illegal immigrant arrested by Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office for rape. The Biden administration must answer for when this criminal illegal was released into the interior of the United States and what was known about him.

I joined my colleagues this week in introducing The Countering Communist China Act, the largest and most comprehensive legislation addressing the Chinese Communist Party ever introduced in Congress.

I announced a new interview in the Veterans History Project Series – a way to feature the accomplishments and military careers of Florida’s 17th district veterans. This interview features Army National Guard Veteran Dan O’Leary.

Demanding Information from DHS on Illegal Immigrant Arrested for Rape in Charlotte County

I sent a letter to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas on Friday demanding information on Santo Felix Cruz-Ramos, a 25-year-old illegal immigrant reportedly from Honduras. Charlotte County Sheriff’s Office arrested Cruz-Ramos on charges of sexual battery in Englewood, Florida after a woman stated to the Sheriff’s office that she had been raped. Thanks to Joe Biden and Alejandro Mayorkas, the world’s criminals know they can easily enter our country and terrorize our citizens. Florida is a law-and-order state. The Biden administration must answer for when this criminal illegal was released into the interior of the United States and what was known about him. As the federal representative for Charlotte County, I take seriously my responsibility to provide oversight of the Biden Administration’s Department of Homeland Security. Floridians deserve better.

Countering Communist China

I joined my Republican Study Committee colleagues this week in introducing H.R. 7476, The Countering Communist China Act. The Countering Communist China Act is the largest and most comprehensive legislation addressing the Chinese Communist Party ever introduced in Congress. I firmly believe the CCP is America’s number one national security threat. The Biden administration has referred to China as America’s “competitor,”  but we must treat them as the adversary that they are. Our legislation targets the CCP on everything from data theft and unfair trade practices to their human rights abuses and indoctrination efforts at American universities. We must simultaneously bolster American domestic production to secure our supply chains and shore up our military’s national security authorizations to check China and hold Xi Jinping accountable.

Friday I announced a new addition to our Veterans History Project Series, showcasing the remarkable accomplishments and military journeys of the veterans from Florida’s 17th District. This interview highlights the esteemed United States Army National Guard veteran, Dan O’Leary. In the words of Dan O’Leary, ‘freedom isn’t free.’ His steadfast dedication to serving all Americans exemplifies true patriotism. We salute you, Dan, for your sacrifice and duty. Thank you for sharing your testimony of service. Our office will submit the interview to the Veterans History Project, an initiative of the Library of Congress’s American Folklife Center to collect and retain the oral histories of our nation’s veterans. If you are a veteran living in Florida’s 17th congressional district, please click here to participate.

Dr. Shoemaker announces candidacy for the RPOF State Committeemen and Committeewomen Caucus Chair

Dr. Shoemaker announces candidacy for the Republican Party of Florida (RPOF) State Committeemen (SCM) and State Committeewomen (SCW) Caucus Chair

Lakeland—1/3/2023 — Dr. Ed Shoemaker announces candidacy for the Republican Party of Florida (RPOF) State Committeemen (SCM) and State Committeewomen (SCW) Caucus Chair. 

Presently, Dr. Shoemaker serves as RPOF State Committeeman representing Polk County, Chair of the RPOF Congressional District 15 Caucus, President of the Faith Based Republican Club of West Polk, and member of the RPOF Faith Engagement Committee.

For the past 30 plus years, Shoemaker has experienced firsthand the devastating impact of progressive, liberal policies as an adoptive parent, community, mental health and education advocate.

 Focus

As Chairman of the RPOF State Committeemen and State Committeewomen Caucus, Shoemaker will follow through on his commitment as State Committeeman to identify and implement proven strategies to elect True Conservative Republicans to public office statewide. Shoemaker will initiate his Chairmanship by focusing on Education and Accountability by focusing on holding  RPOF Chartered Clubs and elected officers’ accountability to the “RPOF Loyalty Oath” by advocating for an amendment to the RPOF Party Rules of Procedure (Republican State Executive Committee) under Rule 1-Chartering Process for Republican Clubs to add the requirement of RPOF Charter Club members and their elected officers to sign and abide by the RPOF Loyalty Oath, define blatant violations and process for removal or revocation of a RPOF Charter Club member elected officer or an RPOF’s charter status. Another strategy we need to focus on is effective communication without compromising our values and Republican platform within our Party and with collaborative stakeholders.

Shoemaker emphasizes that “All Republicans need to be on the same page to reverse the devastating impact of the progressive, liberal policies by uniting and standing firm to protect the U.S. Constitution and our God-given inalienable rights.”
