Rising Global Influence

Here are a few highlights from this week: 1. Rising Global Influence Today, I spoke at the Faith& Freedom Coalition Conference about China's rising global influence.

Work Comes Before Recess

Here are a few articles about our efforts to #MakeCongressWorkAgain that I thought you might want to see: 1. Work Comes Before Recess "If you don't work, you really can't take a break. That's basically the message U.S. Sen. David Perdue is sending to Congress. He wants to see more of President Donald Trump's nominees move through the confirmation pipeline and says there also needs to be some progress made on spending bills. Only then should Congress take its annual August recess. 'We are wil… Continue Reading

Action

President Trump said he would never sign another massive, last-minute spending bill like the omnibus again. Congress only has 67 days to get next year's funding bill to President Trump's desk. We need to take action now so President Trump is not jammed with another bad funding deal. We ought to work as long as it takes -- including nights, weekends, and through the August recess if necessary -- to get funding done and make progress on the backlog of nominees. I'm leading this effort, and Whit… Continue Reading

Make Congress Work Again

Congress must act with a sense of urgency to fund the government on-time and get President Trump's team in place. We should be willing to work 24/7 and through the August recess if necessary to complete these items. I'm leading this effort in the Senate, and this morning, I joined Fox& Friends to discuss our push to break through the gridlock and #MakeCongressWorkAgain. The time to act is now.

I voted against the massive "omnibus" spending bill.

Friend, I voted against the massive "omnibus" spending bill. Washington has reached a new low. We are six months into this fiscal year and just now voted on funding for the remainder of it. Not to mention, this is after two shutdowns and five continuing resolutions. This is beyond pathetic. This spending bill is not a product that represents everybody. It's a product written by a few politicians who got in a room and decided how to spend a trillion dollars. The result is a massive spending p… Continue Reading
