When I talk to constituents, I hear a lot of concerns they want Washington to address. The cost of living, high energy prices, the crisis on the southern border, and several others impact them and their communities, and so these concerns come up frequently. One concern I had not heard expressed by constituents regards the ownership of big cats. Yet the current Democrat majority in the U.S. House o...

Our health care system delivers what once seemed like miraculous outcomes every day. Its drawbacks, however, are well known. High costs, bureaucracy, and limited choices diminish the cures and treatments patients receive. These problems are deeply felt in rural areas in particular. Reforming health care requires lowering costs and streamlining the process of obtaining care without taking away its ...

Current events make clear that fossil fuels will not be going away. What we must do is increase research on how to burn fossil fuels more efficiently and cleanly. An article that recently ran in the Washington Post should remind us that good intentions and arbitrary deadlines aren’t a power source. Headlined “As China mines more coal, levels of a more potent greenhouse gas soar,” the article highl...

On the last Monday of May each year, we set aside a day to honor those who have fallen in defense of our country. Throughout our history, we have been fortunate to have men and women step forward to serve the United States. Citizenship imposes obligations on all of us, but these individuals gave more. Sometimes, they gave all they could give. Memorial Day is an occasion for the rest of us to recog...

In times of crisis, Americans look to the president of the United States for leadership. If we do so now, however, we would only see a president and administration who have been neglectful of solving the real problems facing our country or actively made them worse. No president has governed over a more severe crisis at the southern border. April 2022 saw the most illegal crossings in one month on ...

Supply chain disruptions in recent months have led to shortages of many products we once typically purchased with ease. The present widespread shortage of baby formula, however, presents a disturbing new indicator of the economy’s disorder. According to Datasembly, 43 percent of major baby food brands were out of stock for the week ending on May 8. In some states, the percentage was even higher. A...

A leaked draft opinion has turned attention to the Supreme Court’s upcoming ruling in the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization case. Based on the draft opinion, it appears that a majority of the Court is ready to reverse its ruling in Roe v. Wade, the 1973 case that struck down restrictions on abortion across the country. As a strong supporter of the right to life, I would welcome such a r...

A primary responsibility of Congress is oversight of the executive branch. For any administration, but especially the Biden Administration, that means a lot of questions to ask. In contrast to the number of questions, the opportunities to ask them have been few. The appearance of U.S. Health and Human Services (HHS) Secretary Xavier Becerra before the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s Subcommi...

President Biden has repeatedly said that on COVID-19 he’d “follow the science.” His Administration’s shifting and contradictory positions on pandemic precautions suggest otherwise. Let’s look at some of these recent actions. On April 1, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that it would end the use of Title 42. This measure, authorized by the Public Health Service Act, al...

Easter During this time of year, Christians look forward to Easter. As we gather to celebrate Christ’s resurrection from the dead, I look forward to hearing many of the hymns written for the occasion. One of my favorites is “Welcome, Happy Morning!” Welcome, happy morning! Age to age shall say: Hell today is vanquished, Heaven is won today! Lo! the Dead is living, God for evermore Him their true C...
