I do know who my bosses are. They aren’t the particular pursuits in Washington, it isn’t celebration management, it’s my voters in Florida.
Earlier this month, I sat down with a few of my bosses in Destin, Florida for a podcast they host of their driveway. I used to be there to be held accountable. Congress has but to realize the issues voters are asking for like time period limits and a balanced funds.
That’s what this struggle in Congress is all about. It’s about ensuring the guarantees we’ve made to voters are fulfilled. The Speaker made guarantees to me and different lawmakers in January, and I wish to maintain him to account. To be particular, that settlement features a vote on time period limits, a vote on a balanced funds modification, single topic spending payments, and the complete launch of the January 6 tapes.
This isn’t about politics or character. It’s about sticking to our phrase, and getting our nation again on monitor.
In Joe Biden’s America, households are having to pinch pennies, so Congress ought to too. Politicians which have spent a long time working up America’s deficit are taking this personally.
Rep. John Carter, who has been on the appropriations committee since 2005, lately attacked me as an “idiot” to a reporter. Okay. What’s idiotic is that our nation’s nationwide debt has elevated greater than $25 trillion since 2005.
Some individuals are determined to make a coverage battle private, as a result of their coverage failures are personally embarrassing.
We should cease the fiscal madness in Washington and get our spending underneath management. I’m not voting for a unbroken decision that funds Jack Smith’s election interference, harmful chaos on the southern border, and cash for the limitless struggle in Ukraine.
Just take into consideration what it means for Congress to manipulate by Continuing Resolution. Every time we vote for a unbroken decision, we make no modifications in coverage or spending. It’s a vote to proceed the established order. If that’s all Congress goes to do, simply change us with AI bots, as a result of we aren’t doing something. The hearings are enjoyable, however it’s the budgets the place actual coverage modifications are made.
Moody’s chief economist lately mentioned that the standard American family is spending $709 a month greater than they had been two years in the past simply to purchase the identical items and companies. That’s practically $9,000 per yr being stolen from Americans by way of the hidden tax of inflation.
Americans actually can’t afford Washington’s reckless spending. Politicians in Washington DC – on either side of the aisle – are robbing the American individuals and their grandchildren to pay for struggle in Ukraine, drag queen reveals in Ecuador, an open border, free stuff for unlawful immigrants, and the Biden Department of Justice’s unlawful election interference.
I got here to Washington to be a voice for my voters and repair this as soon as nice nation. I’m not right here to empower the Democrats’ radical agenda. I’ll be damned if I’m going to take a seat by and do nothing whereas greed and corruption destroys our nice nation.
