Announcement

Friend, I've been calling out Washington's broken budget process ever since I came to the United States Senate. It is a complete failure and has only worked four times in the last 44 years. Both Republicans and Democrats have acknowledged that the budget process is broken, and now, we are finally seeing some urgency to fix it. Recently, Congress formed a joint select committee of 8 Republicans and 8 Democrats from the House and Senate tasked with fixing the budget process. It was just annou… Continue Reading

Let's Make Congress Work Again

In case you missed it... Let's Make Congress Work Again The Hill By U.S. Senator David Perdue February 7, 2018 http://bit.ly/2nJ8Y7C In contrast to our current economic rebound, the United States debt is past the tipping point of a financial crisis.

President Trump's Immigration Framework

A year ago, Senator Tom Cotton and I started the conversation about a conservative approach to solving our country's legal immigration problems.
