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...

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...

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 thoughts on this: Fir...

Christmas Came a Little Early This Year

| Posted in Blog

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. And 3️⃣ Biden backed off trying to pay illegal immigrants $450,000 each in “legal settlements.” All of this is promising news heading into Christmas. For those interest...

"Build Back Broke"

| Posted in Blog

I was a resounding NO vote just moments ago. In fact, every Republican voted NO. But Democrats in the House still managed to ram through their massive socialist spending spree. (What they laughably call the “Build Back Better” plan.) I will never understand the thinking of those who support this bill. It is the most irresponsible and liberal legislation we’ve seen in decades. Want some examples? ...

Two Simple Questions Ought To Guide Every Vote in Congress

| Posted in Blog

It’s like spending $75 on a hamburger because you really like the restaurant’s pickles. You’d never do that, but for some reason, you’re supposed to applaud the government spending over a trillion dollars on a so-called “infrastructure” bill the week before last, which had only a pickel’s worth of spending on actual infrastructure. Two simple questions ought to guide every vote in Congress: (A) I...

Conning the American Public

Printing Money

Last night, we received an alarming update on the projected costs of the Democrats’ “Build Back Better” plan. Remember this is the next round of massive, multi-trillion-dollar, socialist spending they’re trying to ram through Congress while they still can. As I covered in my post Sunday night, Democrats have intentionally manipulated this legislation by adding sham expiration dates to many of this...

Hopefully It Fails

| Posted in Blog

It was only a week ago that Nancy Pelosi managed to twist enough arms to pass a massive $1.2 trillion spending bill. That legislation had a small amount of appropriate infrastructure spending, but a TON of unnecessary waste and government overreach. It should have never passed the House, but thirteen Republicans – approx. 6% of total Republicans in the House – helped Democrats push it across the f...
