Protecting Others Around You

| Posted in Blog

Think about this: if you suspected you might have the coronavirus, even if your symptoms were very mild, wouldn’t you take steps to protect others around you? Just in case? Of course you would. We all would, even if they were total strangers. The problem, however, is any one of us could be infected and highly contagious long before we even suspect something’s wrong. And even if our symptoms remain... Read more »

Safely Reopening America

| Posted in Blog

Here’s the debate: (A) Should we be taking measured, reasonable steps to re-open America and get people safely back to work, knowing this path must be monitored very closely and isn’t without some risk? Or (B) should we extend efforts to keep Americans at home and “non-essential” businesses closed, knowing the financial damage this will cause to American families and our economy? The truth is the ... Read more »

A False Dichotomy

| Posted in Blog

Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) said it perfectly yesterday: “We are too often presented with a false dichotomy: either saving our economy or saving lives.” He was talking with Dr. Anthony Fauci during a Senate hearing, and what Sen. Scott said was exactly right. Those who believe preventative measures should never have been taken are ignoring the immeasurable toll that would have had on human lives and ... Read more »

Dreamlifters Helping MUSC

| Posted in In the News

The Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) has two very important hospitals in our congressional district: Lancaster Medical Center and Chester Medical Center. Yesterday I was in Charleston to greet three massive Boeing Dreamlifters that arrived with over 150,000 protective eye goggles and face shields. This personal protective equipment is now on its way to facilities within the MUSC system,... Read more »

Don't Be Surprised

| Posted in Blog

This Friday afternoon, top-ranking liberals in the House of Representatives are trying to finalize a 5th piece of COVID-19 legislation. They’ve nicknamed it “CARES 2” to coattail on the popularity of the original CARES Act, which passed overwhelmingly in late March. This is unfortunately not the bi-partisan effort it should be. Negotiations are taking place behind the scenes and most of what we’re... Read more »

The WUHAN Rescissions Act

| Posted in Blog

The recent CARES Act definitely had some spending that shouldn’t have been included as part of a COVID-19 response package. So yesterday, I co-sponsored a bill to claw back over $27 billion from that legislation. Let’s dispense with the obvious first: Every bill is a compromise, and every member of Congress must decide whether – considered in its entirety – the good of that legislation outweighs t...

$36,000 for a Family of Four

| Posted in Blog

Let’s take a married couple with two kids. $36,000 is their family's share of what the federal government will BORROW this quarter alone (April – June). That's based on news released late yesterday from the U.S. Treasury. Obviously in response to this pandemic, significant spending has been required to protect our nation and keep our economy from total collapse. However, we cannot forget EVERY DOL... Read more »

The Truth About "Unrestricted Aid"

| Posted in Blog

“Unrestricted aid” – remember this phrase, because it’s going to be a major point of contention in the coming weeks. As Congress looks into a possible 5th piece of legislation in response to this pandemic, there’s now a growing push for the federal government to send over half a TRILLION dollars in unrestricted aid to states and local governments. By “unrestricted” I mean no conditions on how that... Read more »
