Commitment to America

commitment-to-america

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…

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…

America has officially entered the Biden Recession

| Posted in Blog

📛 America has officially entered the Biden Recession. Not that there was any doubt, but this morning it was confirmed. Now we know why the White House has been in overdrive lately trying to redefine the common definition of the word recession. More on that in a second. But first, according to data released this morning, our economy shrank during the quarter from April through June.…

A Profound Number

excessive-federal-spending

A stack of 1 trillion pennies would reach the moon, come back to earth, and reach the moon again. Compared to millions and even billions, a trillion is a profound number. Think about this: 🔸 1 million seconds is equivalent to about 11 ½ days. 🔸 1 billion seconds is equivalent to about 31 ½ years. 🔸 1 trillion seconds is equivalent to over 31,710 years. Now think about this: since…

9.1%

| Posted in Blog

Just reported moments ago, inflation numbers from last month came in at 9.1%, exceeding EVERY projection. This is truly awful on multiple levels. We are in a serious mess due, in large part, to the excessive spending by Democrats in control of Congress and the President’s policies in the White House. Against all better judgement, they dumped almost TWO TRILLION DOLLARS into an economy…

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…

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…

Update on "Build Back Broke"

| Posted in Blog

Great news this Sunday morning as Sen. Joe Manchin (D-West Virginia) announced he would NOT vote for President Biden’s massive tax & spend “Build Back Broke” (BBB) plan. Remember the Senate is split 50-50, and every Republican realized this was a bad deal for America. So with Sen. Manchin opposing the bill, it’s not going anywhere in the Senate… at least for now. A few random…
