In less than two short years, unified Democrat control of the Federal Government has diminished our country in ways that would astound even a pessimist. Inflation has risen to levels not seen in forty years. Gas prices hit record highs earlier this year. More than two million illegal immigrants have been encountered at the southern border this fiscal year before it has even ended, not…

On the eve of the United Kingdom’s entry into World War I, Foreign Secretary Sir Edward Grey remarked as he observed lamplighters at work in the dusk, “The lamps are going out all over Europe, we shall not see them lit again in our lifetime.” Amid another war on the European continent in the present, the lamps may be literally going out across Europe – and the air conditioning, and the…

Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) issued the following statement after voting against the Democrat reconciliation bill: “Under the misleading and inaccurate title of the ‘Inflation Reduction Act,’ Democrats put together a wrongheaded wish list that will raise taxes, unleash the IRS, implement the Green New Deal, and impose cure-killing price controls in medicine. “This bill will not…

Like a horror movie monster seemingly finished off at the end returning for a sequel, the Democrat tax-and-spend reconciliation bill that once appeared dead has returned in the summer of 2022.

Although I am a lifelong conservative, the Democrats I have known over the years were proud to consider their party the defender of working men and women. I may have thought their policies were not suited to the task, but I never thought I would see the day when Democrat officials actually bragged about blue-collar workers losing jobs.

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…

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.

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…

Supply chains were once far from the mind of the average consumer, but they were nevertheless vital. Behind just about every product, from the food on your table to the clothes you wear to the vehicle you drive, lies a supply chain that can potentially stretch across the globe.
