Tonight's State of the Union Address

| Posted in Blog

I’m not expecting much from the State of the Union address tonight. We’ll hear a lot of platitudes and cherry-picked statistics, but nothing meaningful in terms of policy or vision. If you’re inclined to tune in to President Biden’s remarks tonight, I’d invite you to keep these facts in the back of your mind: ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION: 4.5 million people have illegally crossed our southern…

Alarming Chinese Surveillance

| Posted in Blog

News about this Chinese surveillance balloon currently hovering over the continental United States is yet ANOTHER alarming development from the communist regime. China is claiming it's a benign balloon intended for scientific research, which just happened to float over into our airspace. The problem is that very little that government claims can be trusted. And the time for China to…

Ensuring Accurate and Complete Abortion Data Reporting Act of 2023

| Posted in Blog
Tags: Pro-Life

The reality is we have no idea how many abortions are actually performed each year in this country. States are asked to provide these numbers to the federal government, but they are not required to do so. Which allows states like California and Maryland to intentionally withhold this data. Meanwhile, these states have no problem using federal tax dollars for family planning services.…

Rep. Ralph Norman Introduces Legislation to Award the Medal of Honor to Major James Capers, Jr.

| Posted in Blog

Last Thursday, Rep. Ralph Norman (R-SC) introduced H.R. 587, authorizing President Biden to award Major James Capers Jr. the Medal of Honor.   Major Capers was responsible for incredible acts of valor when his Marine Corps special operations team was ambushed during a mission in Phu Loc, Vietnam in 1967 during the Vietnam War.   H.R. 587…

School Choice in South Carolina

School Choice

Yes! I’m so proud of the South Carolina State Legislature for working on SCHOOL CHOICE. This is an issue I’ve been promoting in Congress, but the heavy lifting ultimately needs to happen on the state level. *** I believe important tweaks are needed to South Carolina’s efforts — more on that below — but first a little background: Many of you know I’m very disheartened with our nation’s…

Regarding Ozempic

| Posted in Blog

My office has received a fair number of calls and emails lately about the lack of availability of a prescription drug known as Ozempic. This is an important injection for many people with type 2 diabetes. According to the manufacturer, its purpose is to “improve blood sugar” and “reduce the risk of major cardiovascular events such as heart attack, stroke, or death in adults with type 2…

118th Committee Assignments

| Posted in Blog

This was a little surprising, frankly, but it will be a good thing. On Monday, I was appointed to serve on the House Rules Committee by Speaker Kevin McCarthy. As a general statement, the Rules Committee ultimately decides which bills or amendments are brought before the House for consideration. In other words, this committee has a tremendous amount of power (and responsibility). If you…

Changing Their Tune

| Posted in Blog

Forgive, yes. But I will never forget the spiteful, ridiculous comments aimed at me and the other 19 conservatives during the recent election for Speaker of the House. From op-ed writers to television commentators, many of my vocal critics were notable figures in conservative circles. (Or at least they used to be.) And many have spent the better part of their careers promoting fiscal…

The Debt Ceiling

| Posted in Blog

Over the coming weeks and months, you’ll likely hear a lot about the debt ceiling. That’s the legal amount of money the federal government can borrow.  $31,381,000,000,000 is our current debt limit. That’s $31.4 trillion, which is a MASSIVE amount of debt. The government owes this money because politicians in Washington simply will not stop spending. This has been the case for…

Biden's Classified Documents

| Posted in Blog

=== UPDATE 1:42 PM ===   Shortly after I posted this below, the U.S. Attorney General announced that a special council was being appointed to investigate the classified documents found in Biden's garage and private office. Good news.   === ORIGINAL POST === This is rich. This week we’re learning that not one, but TWO troves of classified documents have been…
