Congressman Andy Barr

Representing All the People of Kentucky's Sixth District


More on Seniors

Congressman Andy Barr (KY-6) today voted for H.R. 1314, the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015.

Congressman Andy Barr (KY-6) issued the following statement today after the Supreme Court issued its ruling in the case of King v. Burwell:

“I appreciate the Court’s consideration of this case, but I strongly and respectfully disagree with the majority opinion.  Laws should be implemented as they are written, not as the President wishes they were written.  The ruling may temporarily shield many Americans from the true cost of health care under Obamacare but it does nothing to solve the problem of rising prices and government-rationed care.”

Congressman Andy Barr (KY-6) voted in favor of H.R. 1105, the Death Tax Repeal Act of 2015.  The death tax was imposed in 1916 as a “temporary” measure to help finance World War I.  Nearly a century later, this confiscatory tax threatens family-run businesses and family farms.

“Death and taxes may be certainties of life, but I don’t believe the federal government should continue to tax people after they have passed away,” said Congressman Barr.  “The death tax threatens many family-owned Kentucky farms and small businesses, and I’m proud to vote for its repeal.”


Congressman Andy Barr (KY-6) has been recognized with a national senior citizen’s award.  The Benjamin Franklin Award recognizes Members of Congress who are working to repeal the death tax.

“Unfortunately, the President offered the same failed approach of more government spending, more job-crushing regulations, and higher taxes.
