Let's Talk Details

Washington Storm

Let’s talk details. This is a long post, I know, but it’s important for everyone to understand just how bad the Democrats’ massive tax & spend package is going to be. Remember, this bill isn’t even finalized yet. I’ve linked to their initial version below. As of now, this is a 2,465-page monster that will expand cradle-to-grave government dependence, make inflation worse, and put our…

More on Biden's Vaccine Mandate

| Posted in Blog

More on Biden’s misguided vaccine mandate last week. To recap, the President has directed the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to write rules applying to EVERY company with more than 100 employees. These rules would require workers to either be vaccinated or submit to weekly Covid testing. And get this: failure to comply could result in fines up to $14,000 per…

Vaccine Mandate from President Biden

| Posted in Blog

Moments ago, a VACCINE MANDATE was announced by President Biden. (After he previously opposed mandates.) For companies with 100 or more employees, his "plan" would force those employees to either be vaccinated or submit to Covid testing at least once a week. This is NOT within the President's authority, and is just another example of his overreach from the Oval Office. The courts need…

*** UPDATED 7/30/2021 10:30 PM *** The CDC finally released the data referenced below on Friday afternoon. A link to those findings can be found here: I'll reiterate, the CDC owed us this data, and this should have been released as part of their revised guidance.

Stop With the Mask Mandates

| Posted in Blog

Government has absolutely no business implementing new mask mandates! This is particularly true on Capitol Hill, which ought to be a shining example for our entire nation. Instead, it's become an exercise in irrational anxiety. Whether you get vaccinated or not, that’s your own decision! I did. In fact, the overwhelming majority of members and staff in this place are vaccinated, and I’d…

A Terrible Way To Treat Our Vaccine Companies

We can now add **patent theft** to the growing list of horrible policy decisions by President Biden. This is bad news on multiple levels.  Here’s what’s going on… Last week, Mr. Biden came out in support of canceling the intellectual property rights for Covid vaccines developed here in the United States. In other words, he wants companies like Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson &…
