Congressman Vicente Gonzalez

Representing the 15th District of Texas

Economy

Congressman Gonzalez has long been a voice for the American consumers and an advocate for fiscally-responsible policies that encourage economic growth and job creation in South Texas. Congressman Gonzalez supports updating our nation’s tax regime so that all Americans benefit from the nation’s tax system equitably.

As a member of the powerful House Committee on Financial Services, Congressman Gonzalez seeks to enact policies that protect seniors and service members from financial exploitation and balance the needs of taxpayers, businesses, and regional and community financial institutions.  

Congressman Gonzalez is also a member of the Blue Dog Coalition, a group of 18 centrist Democrats committed to financial stability, ensuring a strong national defense, and transcending party lines to get things done for the American people.

A staunch supporter of pragmatism and mutual respect, Congressman Gonzalez proudly serves as the sole Texan in the Problem Solvers Caucus. The newly-formed caucus consists of Democrats and Republicans who pursue common sense, bipartisan economic policies working together for the common good of the United States of America.
