Michael Clifton Burgess (born December 23, 1950) is an American physician and politician serving as a Republican member of the United States House of Representatives representing Texas's 26th congressional district. The district is anchored in Denton County, a suburban county north of Dallas and Fort Worth. In 2002, he defeated Scott Armey, the son of House Majority Leader and then-U.S. Representative Dick Armey, in a primary runoff election. Prior to his election, he practiced as a doctor of obstetrics and gynecology. Burgess is a member of the congressional Tea Party Caucus, and he has been involved in the debates over health care reform and energy policy. He opposes abortion, is unsure of the extent of the contribution of human activity to global warming, supported President Donald Trump's restrictions on travel from Muslim-majority countries and refugee immigration, and supports the repeal of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).
