Weekly Update - 10.16.22

Good afternoon and welcome to our Weekend Update.

As we approach the election, it’s crystal clear that the security of our nation is on the ballot… both from an economic and public safety perspective. While most of our country is plagued by record crime and our border crisis continues to worsen, our economy sinks further and further into a recession. The Biden administration and Biden Democrats would like Americans to believe it’s just bad luck or a coincidence that our nation is headed into economic peril. Still, the reality is that their policies drove us to this point. The combination of massive government spending, higher taxes, and an anti-American domestic energy policy have served as the catalyst for our nation’s economic issues.

Biden & the Democrats' Inflation Reduction Act has really become The Nation's Destruction Act. Their policies are ravaging the economy and wrecking family budgets. Democrats must focus on results and check their woke ideology at the door. I joined Newsmax’s “Wake Up America” to discuss the current state of the economy under Washington’s Democrat leadership.

Weekly Update - 10.2.22

Good afternoon and welcome to our Weekend Update.

First and foremost, Shelley and I wish to extend our heartfelt thoughts and prayers to the people of Florida, South Carolina, and all the other states impacted by Hurricane Ian. This devastating storm tragically resulted in countless lost lives and destroyed a great deal of property and critical infrastructure. We also thank and pray for the brave first responders, linemen, and others assisting with this historic rescue and clean-up effort.

I have been in regular contact with some of my U.S. House colleagues representing Florida, as well as the head of the Florida Emergency Management. We have constituents with homes, as well as friends and family, who have been impacted. Fortunately, Florida has strong leadership and is working round the clock to perform rescues, get to those in need and soon begin restoration. The level of damage is severe and extensive. Thousands of emergency responders have been deployed. Godspeed to all impacted. I, and my office, will continue to monitor, respond and offer assistance as best we can.

On Friday, I joined House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy at DMI Companies, Inc in Monongahela, Pennsylvania, to unveil the rollout of the historic "Commitment to America." This will serve as the guidepost plan for the new Republican House Majority in the U.S. House of Representatives.

I joined Stuart Varney on Fox Business to discuss the new plan and the event. Click here or below to watch.

Weekly Update - 9.11.22

Good afternoon and welcome to our Weekend Update.

Today, we pause to remember the many we lost in the tragic terrorist attacks on 9/11. Twenty-one years ago, America was attacked by terrorists who hoped to destroy our way of life.

Yet, ordinary citizens rose to the challenge, exhibiting countless acts of bravery to help others in New York City, Arlington, VA and Shanksville, PA. At the Flight 93 National Memorial, we remember the heroes who sacred their own lives to save their fellow citizens. We will never forget their memory. Time and time again, when our nation is attacked, Americans rise up and exhibit the very best.

Following 9/11, patriotism was at an all-time high. Everyone, regardless of age or party affiliation, came together and put America first. I hope we can remember that time and reignite that patriotism and love of nation.

We also mourn the passing of her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on Thursday. Queen Elizabeth showed her servant's heart to generations of people around the world. She was the embodiment of class and grace. Born in 1926, she led through historic and difficult days. She was always an advocate of freedom and the United States of America. May she rest in peace. Queen Elizabeth has maintained close relationships with several U.S. Presidents, but she was perhaps closer to President Ronald Reagan than any other. Below is a picture of Queen Elizabeth riding horses with President Reagan at his ranch.

Weekly Update - 8.28.22

Good afternoon and welcome to our Weekend Update.

This week, I joined the "National Report" on Newsmax to discuss various issues, including the FBI's raid of Mar-a-Lago. Like many Americans, I believe the whole situation was outrageous. Conversations were taking place, and it seemed as if President Trump, the secret service, and his staff were fully cooperating with the archives that were claimed to be in lockdown at the president's residence. But unfortunately, things went off the rails at a certain point, and the Department of Justice decided to take some very rash actions. To justify their outrageous actions, they came up with a story about nuclear codes, which made ridiculous headlines in the fake news.

There's one party here asking for full disclosure, and that's President Trump's lawyers. Meanwhile, the DOJ continues to present redacted materials and refuses to present the evidence. I think that's pretty telling in itself. We also discussed the Pennsylvania statewide elections and the importance of electing Dr. Mehmet Oz to the U.S. Senate and Doug Mastriano as our next Governor. Click here or below to watch.

Weekly Update - 8.21.22

Good afternoon and welcome to our Weekend Update.

This week we traveled all over the District. We had an incredibly busy week, just the way our team likes it. Speaking with constituents, they are clearly unhappy with the Biden administration, Biden Democrats and the newly passed Recession Extension Act.

Unfortunately, the “Inflation Reduction Act” is like an onion… the more you peal it back, the more you want to cry. The legislation includes tax increases, a massive expansion of IRS agents, and will do nothing to reduce inflation. No Democrat can say with a straight face that this bill will reduce inflation. Inflation is the most regressive tax in U.S. history.

Weekly Update - 8.14.22

Good afternoon and welcome to our Weekend Update.

The raid of President Donald J. Trump's home was an unprecedented and outrageous action. The FBI already has a credibility problem: fake dossiers, emails, Hillary destroying evidence, ignoring an obvious Hunter Biden/Big Guy scandal. This action is unacceptable & undermines the 4th and 5th amendments. Using a government agency to conduct a raid on a former President and political rival is something we would expect from Putin on his rivals… not here, not in the United States of America. I have spoken to many constituents who are deeply troubled and upset by this entire episode. Every time I believe the Biden administration can't dig America a deeper hole of problems, Joe grabs a shovel.

On Friday, I was in Washington to vote NO on the Biden Democrats' Recession Extension Act which raises taxes on the American people, adds 87,000 new IRS agents, and add over half a trillion dollars in new government spending. I joined Newsmax to discuss this disastrous bill. Click here or below to watch.

Weekly Update - 8.7.22

Good afternoon and welcome to our Weekend Update.

Before I begin with the rest of our update, I want to take a moment to remember my friend and colleague, Congresswoman Jackie Walorski. Congresswoman Jackie Walorski was killed in a tragic car crash while traveling her district in Indiana. Also lost in the tragedy were Jackie's District Director, Zachery Potts, and Communications Director, Emma Thomson. Emma was a Pennsylvania native. Please join Shelley and I in praying for their families during this mournful time. Jackie, her young staff members, and families will be in our thoughts and prayers.
