Rick Allen https://www.augustachronicle.com/opinion/20200912/guest-column-examine-postal-service-status-in-proper-perspective The U.S. Postal Service is a unique government service that has long played an integral role in American life.

  • Democrats should join Republicans in condemning lawlessness and supporting police
    Posted in Opinion Pieces on July 9, 2020 | Preview rr

    By Congressman Rick W. Allen (GA-12) July 9, 2020 https://fxn.ws/2ZVNBlN Over the past month, we’ve seen radical progressives attack our nation. Legitimate and peaceful protests have been hijacked by violent lawbreakers with the ultimate goal of total anarchy. Now we’re experiencing attacks on law enforcement, the destruction of presidential memorials and the establishment of so-called “autonomous zones.” Some of my Democratic colleagues have refused to condemn the lawlessness and riots that ha...

    By Congressman Rick W. Allen (GA-12) June 25, 2020 https://bit.ly/3i3pVUz Today marks one month since the wrongful death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Since that tragic day, his death has sparked calls for police reform. I believe that in order for justice to be served, we must reevaluate policing policies from the bottom up to ensure this situation will never occur again. No officer who has multiple citations, uses excessive force, and is incapable of performing their lawful dutie... Read more

As the coronavirus pandemic, or COVID-19, continues to impact every facet of our lives – businesses, schools, agriculture, travel and, of course, our health – Americans are looking to all levels of government for a quick response and help. While there is more work to do, I am encouraged by the steps we have taken at the federal level to provide rel... Read more

  • Surprise Medical Billing Must End
    Posted in Opinion Pieces on March 1, 2020 | Preview rr

    By Congressman Rick W. Allen (GA-12) March 1, 2020 https://bit.ly/2vnzYAJ We never know when an accident or medical emergency will happen, but we do know that when you receive care you’ll likely receive a bill in the mail. But too often, properly insured patients go to a hospital or other health care provider and end up with costly, unexpected charges. To reduce or eliminate that surprise medical bill, patients are typically burdened with countless phone calls and piles of paperwork. This issue... Read more

Allen (GA-12) December 11, 2019 https://bit.ly/2RRSfPr It’s a special time of year, as Americans all across the country prepare for the holidays and carefully craft their wish lists.

  • Nuclear is a necessary part of our clean-energy future

    By Congressman Rick W. Allen (GA-12) November 22, 2019 https://washex.am/34cuk0m Over the past year, clean energy has become a hot topic, dominating news cycles and conversations around the country. I welcome this conversation and believe the American people deserve to get all the facts. Liberals keep offering unrealistic and costly energy “solutions.” Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s socialist "Green New Deal" is a prime example. It’s one of the worst pieces of legislation I’ve ever ... Read more
