Last week, I was honored to host some of our local mayors, city councilmembers, and city officials from Southwest Alabama in Washington to hear about what they do every day for our communities.
“What do you want to be when you grow up?”
This question is probably the single most-asked question of any child throughout the world. Here in the United States, many children are able to achieve their dreams through hard work, dedication, and a quality education.
This past week, Democrats in Congress again launched an attack on our Constitution and the rights we cherish as Americans. This time, they came after the Second Amendment and our right to bear arms.
H.R. 8, the latest Democrat-led gun control bill does absolutely nothing to prevent criminals or violent persons from getting their hands on firearms.
Growing up, my parents taught me the basic values of fairness and following the rules. I think these values were common in households all across our state and country.
In today’s society, those two basic values need to be applied to the ongoing debate about illegal immigration.
Before the new Congress began at the start of this year, I made a prediction: with the new Democrat majority, we could expect crazy season from the left, with Democrat members taking every chance they could to undermine President Trump.
I don’t claim to have a crystal ball, but I think I hit the nail on the head in this case.
One of the highest honors from my time in Congress has been the many interactions I’ve had with members of our nation’s armed forces and our veterans.
Throughout the long history of the United States, countless Americans have served our country honorably in the military. Many made the ultimate sacrifice.
Over the last several weeks, we saw a prime example of how our government is broken. A portion of the federal government shut down, the Coast Guard went without pay as they completed their dangerous missions, and Democrat Members of Congress refused to negotiate after several efforts and deals were offered.
I am proudly pro-life. Millions of Americans are as well.
The sanctity of human life is immeasurable, and the countless Americans who feel the same way should not have their voices silenced or their opinions rebuked in the mistaken claim of freedom of choice.
It is time for the Democrat leaders in Washington to stop posturing when it comes to border security and end the government shutdown.
The old expression “get the show on the road” is very apt in this situation. But, truth be told, the show is already on. There is no better way to describe the Democrat strategy right now than as a show, playing to their audience.
With 2018 behind us, it is time to start looking at what you can expect from Washington in 2019. Under Republican leadership, we in Congress aimed to make America better off, and thanks to our many victories through conservative policies, we accomplished that goal.
Under Democrat control, there is no telling what craziness will come out of the House of Representatives.
