U.S. Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL) is set to host powerful Ways & Means Chairman Kevin Brady (R-TX) at a campaign reception on June 4, kicking off a string of GOP campaign events scheduled for the early half of the month.

The Ways & Means Committee is the oldest and most powerful committee in Congress with jurisdiction over taxes, trade, health care, Social Security, Medicare and welfare.
Brady is also credited with being one of the primary architects of the newly passed tax law enacted by the Trump administration.
A veteran lawmaker, Brady has a reputation for being a staunch advocate for free enterprise, particularly reducing the cost of health care while improving the quality of service.
