Seeing the Democrats continue to push the same failed policies with the hope of different results, I can’t help but think of a gambler who has already lost big but who remains at the table hoping the next roll of the dice will pay off. Let’s start with spending. An early priority of President Biden and his party’s congressional majorities was the so-called “American Rescue Plan” that spent $1.9 tr...

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...

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 ...

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...

Recent data on illegal immigration under President Biden remind me of the ancient proverb, “Physician, heal thyself.” On March 16, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy addressed Members of Congress including me. He asked for more assistance in his country’s war to repel Russian invaders. Later that day, President Biden announced that the United States would deliver $800 million more in aid to U...

At a recent and rare press conference, President Biden pondered out loud, “What are Republicans for? What are they for? Name me one thing they’re for.” I am happy to name not just one but a lot of things we are for. Furthermore, I’m happy to invite him to work with us on them, although I doubt my invitation will be accepted. The President seems more interested in pandering to progressives than act...

The end of one year and the beginning of another offers the occasion to reflect on what has changed and what remains the same. The good news is that the law of cause and effect remains in place. The bad news is that a lot of misguided and erroneous causes/ideas pushed by the Biden Administration and congressional Democrats have produced a series of lamentable effects. Take energy policy. The progr...

Griffith Votes No on Reckless Reconciliation Bill

| Posted in Press Releases

Congressman Morgan Griffith (R-VA) today voted no on the Democrat reconciliation bill in the U.S. House of Representatives. He issued the following statement: “The Democrat reconciliation bill is a mess. It promises to ‘Build Back Better’ but is littered with policies that will make life more expensive and less free for the average American.

Joe Biden recently presided over a historic achievement, but unfortunately not an achievement worth celebrating. According to the Washington Post, more illegal immigrants were arrested along the U.S.-Mexico border in fiscal year 2021 than ever before recorded. More than 1.7 million migrants were encountered by U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The numbers are astounding but not surprising. When ...
