Arrington Visits Parmer, Bailey, and Castro Counties To Discuss Challenges Facing West Texas

WASHINGTON, DC—Yesterday, Congressman Jodey Arrington (TX-19) traveled across Parmer, Bailey, and Castro counties to discuss the latest challenges facing West Texas healthcare providers, agriculture producers, law enforcement officers, and community leaders. 

“I love being back home with my fellow West Texans discussing the challenges and opportunities facing our nation,” said Rep. Arrington. From President Biden’s border crisis to the extreme policies of the Green New Deal, West Texas values and interests are absolutely under assault. Nancy Pelosi has put the Radical Left in charge and is using Covid and “infrastructure” as a cover to advance socialist policies that would undermine our freedom, cripple our economy, and threaten our way of life. I am grateful for all the prayers and support from my friends on the South Plains – my time with them continues to inspire me to fight for our beloved country and for the values that made America great.”

Included below are highlights and photos of the day’s events:

Rep. Arrington visited Parmer Medical and the Muleshoe Area Medical District to discuss the challenges of rural healthcare. Without access to quality, affordable healthcare, West Texans wouldn't be able to feed, fuel, and clothe our nation. Rep. Arrington has been a champion for rural healthcare and is currently working to lower prescription drug costsprotect access to telehealth services, and reimburse hospitals based on their value to patients and taxpayers.
