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…

One-Way Ticket to a Socialistic Welfare State

| Posted in Blog

The agenda outlined by President Biden on Wednesday night is a one-way ticket to a socialistic welfare state with astronomical taxes, and government encroaching on every aspect of our lives.  His vision for our nation involves growing the size of almost every corner of the federal government. (With the exception of our military, to nobody’s surprise.) There’s simply no room to talk…

Redefining the Word "Infrastructure"

| Posted in Blog

What makes the recent “infrastructure” proposal from President Biden so frustrating is that his proposal has very little to do with actual infrastructure. We dug into a few examples in my post back on March 31st, but I want you to recognize what’s happening with the language being used. So we’re all on the same page, infrastructure refers to (A) physical objects that are (B) necessary…

No Surprises Here

| Posted in Blog

No surprises here. Let’s run through some of President Biden’s executive orders during his first week in office. These are campaign promises he’s making good on – we knew they’d be coming.   PARIS CLIMATE AGREEMENT: It’s basically a sham. There’s no objective standard – each country gets to define what it wants to do. Countries can lie six ways from Sunday about whether they’re…

New Bill: No Funds to China's Military Act

| Posted in Blog

Let’s say a government-controlled company started selling televisions at crazy low prices all over the world. Like a huge 4K flat screen for under $50 – many hundreds of dollars less than every other TV on the market. Let’s say the televisions work well and had great reviews, and because that government is subsidizing the cost, no other company could come close to those low…

Unlike Any Other State of the Union Address

| Posted in Blog

Two totally different worlds – two completely different mindsets – were on full display last night. It was unlike any other State of the Union address I’ve seen, either in person or on TV. There were a couple of themes to the President’s address. First, he took a well-deserved victory lap on numerous fronts: from the economy & trade to our military & war on terror. We must always…

Telephone Town Hall

| Posted in Blog

Over the summer, I hosted eight (8) town halls in-person around the district.  We covered Lancaster, York, Cherokee, Sumter, Newberry, and Union Counties.  It was great to see so many people come out for those events, and I look forward to doing many more in the future. Even though my in-person events are very well-attended, the truth is that telephone town halls allow me to…
