U.S. Creditworthiness Downgrade

| Posted in Blog

The creditworthiness of the United States was downgraded by Fitch Ratings earlier this week. Everyone from the White House and Janet Yellen to financial analysts and journalists were losing their minds over this news. But why on earth does this surprise anyone?! Our nation is over $32 trillion in debt. Our deficit spending is out of control; we are spending trillions of dollars more…

Remarks at CPAC

It was an honor be part of a special forum this morning at CPAC with Rep. Scott Perry, where we covered a wide variety of important issues facing Congress. The weaponization of government, border security, the Speaker's election, China, and more... nothing was off limits. Give a listen!

Reaction to Last Night's State of the Union

| Posted in Blog

I need to point this out, because it was completely ignored in the mainstream media’s analysis after the State of the Union address last night. Forget the slurred speech, forget the missing words, forget the awkward reactions when Republicans jeered at his blatant lies. Forget all that. My biggest takeaway from last night was Biden’s desire for TRILLIONS of dollars’ worth of new…

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…

Commitment to America

| Posted in Blog

I get a lot of questions about what Republicans will do next year when we take back control of the House of Representatives. These are important questions. After all, we can talk forever about spiraling inflation, record illegal immigration, rising violent crime, foreign policy disasters, fentanyl crisis, “woke” education programs, out of control government bureaucracies, etc. But it’s…

GSP Airport

| Posted in Blog

I was touring the GSP airport this morning and simply could not pass up a photo op with this Boeing 747-400. This aircraft had just landed a couple hours earlier packed with cargo from Kirchberg, Germany. The Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport is often the most convenient airport for the western part of our congressional district. More than passenger flights to a variety of…

Another Great Sound Title

| Posted in Blog

It’s all smoke & mirrors. We’re shown this massive piece of legislation with a great sounding title, and you’re told the bill does what the title says. Only it’s a COMPLETE LIE! We see this over and over again in Congress, and I’m tired of it! The Democrats’ “Inflation Reduction Act” is just the latest example – I covered this in a previous post a couple of days ago. This will…
