Direct From David: Glimmer Of Hope

Friend, Here are three things I've been working on that I thought you might be interested in: 1. One Step Closer To Tax Let's be very clear: The budget the U.S. Senate passed last night is a sham. The entire budget process is a fraud being perpetrated on the American people. Only four times in the past 43 years has it fully worked to fund the government on time. The only reason I went along with this process is to get tax done this year. Job one is getting the economy going, and the economy w… Continue Reading


Direct From David: 24/7

The U.S. Senate is being disrupted by historic obstruction. We must be willing to change how things operate in order to get results. Today, I pledged to work around the clock if the Senate is turned on full time, 24/7, until the end of the year. This pledge was signed by 10 other senators, too. We've got to turn the Senate on full time so we can confirm more of President Trump's nominees and act on key agenda items, like fixing the tax code and funding the federal government. I'm also commi… Continue Reading

I wanted to share my recent commentary on my top priorities in the U.S. Senate. Thanks, David The Afghanistan Strategy We've Been Waiting For By Sen. David Perdue Defense News It's refreshing that we now have a commander-in-chief who listens to his military leaders and understands we need a better, wiser approach in Afghanistan. He has given us a clear mission, spelled out what will define victory, and given us a broader sense of how to engage the region in a productive dialogue. Read … Continue Reading


Direct From David: Historic Opportunity

Friends, We have an historic opportunity to change our tax code. An opportunity to lift up American families stretching their paychecks. An opportunity to defend American workers against unfair competition. An opportunity to unleash our full economic potential. In the 1980s, the United States lowered our corporate tax rate to one of the lowest in the world and our economy grew dramatically. As a result, other countries reduced their corporate tax rates. However, we didn't keep up. Today, t… Continue Reading

Direct From David: The Next Step

Today, Senate Republicans took the next step to protect people from Obamacare's failures. Despite the continued stream of misinformation from Democrats, Obamacare is collapsing under its own weight.
