Only then should Congress take its annual August recess. 'We are wil… Continue Reading



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

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
