The news is not good. Just moments ago, inflation data was released for last month showing consumer prices having soared 7% in the last year. Every month in recent memory has brought more bad news on this front. This latest report represents the highest increase in the last 40 years.
Lots of factors are in play here, not the least of which is the labor shortage, Covid, consumer demand,… Read more »
Christmas came a little early this year! 1️⃣ The socialist “Build Back Broke” legislation stalled out yesterday. 2️⃣ Separately, the Senate Parliamentarian ruled, again, that Democrats could not include amnesty in that legislation.

Under President Biden, we're now at a 39-year high for inflation. That's according to data released earlier this Friday morning.
Remember: inflation hit a 30-year record in last month's report. Now we're at a 39-year high, and continuing to trend in all the wrong directions under liberal leadership. Yet we're STILL being asked to believe that the historic levels of government spending… Read more »

There was a lady sitting towards the back of the room at my town hall a couple months ago in York County. She appeared rather upset over the number of bills I’d voted against in Congress… ever since Democrats took control of the House.
In fact, she seemed to know the exact number! You know, as if my purpose in Congress should be to rubber stamp the Democrats’ socialist agenda. Clearly to… Read more »
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… Read more »
