Just Another Political Power Grab

| Posted in Blog

The so-called “Equality Act” is up for a vote again this afternoon. (H.R. 5). This bill isn’t about equality at all – it’s about advancing the radically liberal agenda. And I’ll be voting AGAINST it in just a few minutes. Here’s why: We could start with some easy layups, like this bill making end-runs around parents when it comes to their children receiving life-altering (and often irreversible) ... Read more »

No Friend of Ours

| Posted in Blog

The communist government of China is no friend of ours. They’re working every possible angle to exploit various aspects of our economy, steal our intellectual property, and create a one-way reliance on their country which they intend to leverage for political and military gain. Three quick updates on this communist regime: FIRST, finally some good news out of the White House. President Biden has ... Read more »

Spewing Trillions of Dollars All Over the Place

| Posted in Blog

This week, the House is considering yet another coronavirus spending bill. This will be in addition to the $4 TRILLION that’s already been allocated. Never mind that more than a trillion of that hasn’t even been spent yet – Democrats want to add another $1.9 trillion to the tab. Remember all this coronavirus money is borrowed from our children – we don’t have this sitting around somewhere in a ra... Read more »

U.S. Rep. Ralph Norman Reintroduces Legislation to Permanently Ban Federal Earmarks

| Posted in Press Releases

Earlier today, U.S. Rep. Ralph Norman (SC-5) introduced the Earmark Elimination Act in the House of Representatives. This is a re-introduction of an identical bill he introduced in the 116th Congress.

Earmarks: More Dysfunction on Top of a Broken System

| Posted in Blog

It looks like Democrats want to bring back earmarks. Does everyone remember those? Let’s back up just a minute and talk about “appropriations” in Congress, which is the process of allocating your tax dollars to specific government functions. The Constitution places this responsibility directly on Congress. Every year in the House, we’re supposed to craft 12 appropriations bills – each one covering... Read more »

A Figurative Train Wreck

| Posted in Blog

You’ll probably hear a lot in the coming weeks about a dreadful bill in the House known as H.R. 1. This is the Democrats’ signature piece of legislation this Congress – hence their designation as H.R. #1. Informally it’s known as the “For the People Act.” Because who would ever vote against something that’s “for the people,” right? Well, I’ll be voting against this atrocity because it’s not “for ...

Why Minimum Wages Should Be a State Issue

| Posted in Blog

Let’s talk about why a $15/hour minimum wage is inappropriate at the federal level. This is relevant right now because Democrats just rammed a $15/hr. federal minimum wage through a House committee. They want to mandate that businesses pay a minimum of $15, and are trying to bake that requirement into their next massive stimulus bill. (Which we can’t afford, but more on that later.) Recently, the... Read more »
