I want to highlight a few things in President Biden’s recent budget proposal, because it really speaks to where his priorities are.
First, the crazed spending. For context, the federal government spent $4.1 trillion in fiscal year 2019, before the pandemic. This year, with COVID almost in the rear-view, Biden is proposing… get this… $7.2 trillion in spending – a 75%… Read more »
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… Read more »

It’s not a competition. But if it were, I’d be lapping most every other Member of Congress. 20 is the number to beat…
Since the start of the 117th Congress two weeks ago, I’ve either sponsored or co-sponsored twenty PRO-LIFE bills in the House. (With many more to come.) I’ll post details on a few of those next week.
Today, however, is a dark anniversary. It was on… Read more »
On Wednesday, U.S. Rep. Ralph Norman (R-SC) led over 60 members of Congress in a letter to U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr calling for an update on the 2017 investigation by the Department of Justice (DOJ) into the alleged monetization of human fetal tissue by Planned Parenthood.

So Planned Parenthood apparently considers itself a small business now. This week we learned the nation’s largest abortion provider – with $2 billion in assets, 16,000 employees, and over 600 locations that rake in almost $1.7 billion annually – applied for the new Paycheck Protection Program for small businesses.
Remember this program was set up by Congress to help small businesses and… Read more »
Back in 1972, a proposed amendment was sent out to all 50 states for ratification. It was called the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) and it simply proclaimed, "Equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any state on account of sex."
Remember, three-quarters of the states (38 of 50) must ratify an amendment before it becomes part of our… Read more »
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… Read more »
