Our Own Border is in Crisis

| Posted in Blog

Question for my Democrat friends: why is sending more money to Ukraine in our own national security interest, but securing our southern border isn’t? Republicans are asking that question, and forcing the issue right now up in Congress. If we’re going to borrow more money adding to our $34 trillion in national debt and send that money to help Ukraine, justifying it as for our own national…

Remarks at CPAC

| Posted in Blog

It was an honor be part of a special forum this morning at CPAC with Rep. Scott Perry, where we covered a wide variety of important issues facing Congress. The weaponization of government, border security, the Speaker's election, China, and more... nothing was off limits. Give a listen!

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…

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…

A Staggering Amount of Money

Tags: Ukraine

We’re supposed to vote shortly on $40 billion in financial assistance for Ukraine. $40 billion! This is a STAGGERING amount of money, even for our federal government. It’s more than the ~combined~ budgets of the Labor Department, EPA, and Commerce Department. In fact, $40 billion is more than what we appropriate to the Justice Department each year. So obviously I did a double-take with…

Tighten the Screws

| Posted in Blog

Here’s a quick summary of the legislation I’m supporting in Congress concerning Russia. In no particular order: First, I'm co-sponsoring a bill that would formally suspend normal trade relations with Russia and Belarus, which is a puppet-state of Russia. This is a no-brainer. Russia should not be allowed to function economically as though they aren’t waging an unjust war. Second,…
