What’s Your Solution, Ralph?

| Posted in Blog

“What’s your solution, Ralph?” I get that question all the time, especially when I talk about wasteful spending in Congress and our $30 trillion in federal debt. Friends, our nation is heading for financial ruin. I’m so tired of being asked to vote “yes” on new spending bills with no offsets. I’m tired of bloated, wasteful government. I’m tired of agency heads who claim they can't do with one less...

A very special thanks to Congressman Jeff Duncan and Rep. William Timmons!

One Missed Opportunity After Another

| Posted in Blog

Did any of you watch the State of the Union earlier tonight? It was a spin job like no other. Not to beat a dead horse, but inflation is at a 40 year high under Biden's watch. His policies have enabled & encouraged more than 2 million people to illegally cross our border in the last year. Violent crime is rising. We're now $30 trillion in national debt, while he wants trillions more for climate an...

“Ralph, what are you doing to stop all this?”

| Posted in Blog

I voted NO last night, just like I promised. For those who are interested, here’s a quick & simple summary of what happened yesterday in the House of Representatives on the two massive tax & spend proposals. Remember we’re talking about two separate bills. Bill #1 has been dubbed the “infrastructure bill.” It has over $1 trillion that deals with infrastructure to some extent, but has entirely too...

Add One More No Vote to My Growing Tally

| Posted in Blog

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 her, I ha...

One Chaotic Week in Congress

| Posted in Blog

I think Democrats have all but conceded catastrophic losses in the 2022 midterm elections. That would certainly explain why they’re determined to remake as much of the country as they can, while they still have control of Congress and the White House. That brings us to two massive spending bills on the table this week: Bill #1 is a $1 trillion package that deals (to some extent) with infrastructur...

It's been an exhausting week, but well worth it. We just wrapped up a series of in-person town halls all over the district, and I want to thank the hundreds of people who showed up. It was great to see and hear from so many folks! Also a special thanks to Rep. William Timmons who joined me in Spartanburg, the dozens of law enforcement officers who kept us all safe, and all the venues that hosted ...

Rep. Norman's Statement on the "INVEST in America Act"

| Posted in Press Releases

On Thursday, Rep. Ralph Norman (SC-5) voted again H.R. 3684, titled the “INVEST in America Act.” Two of the primary reasons for his opposition are: H.R. 3684 includes over 1,400 earmarks totaling more than $5.6 billion in spending. As Rep. Norman has stated repeatedly, he believes earmarks are not appropriate unless/until leadership decides to return the House’s appropriations process to regular o...
