Weekly Update - 2.27.22

Good afternoon and welcome to our Weekend Update.

This week, there is a lot to discuss, particularly some important news about our re-election campaign to the 9th District. I must begin by discussing the issue unfolding in Ukraine. Our heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with the people of Ukraine who did nothing to provoke this aggression, and innocent citizens are being slaughtered as a result. However, the resolve of the Ukrainian people is strong, and we all must stand with them.

Weekly Update - 2.13.22

Good afternoon and welcome to our Weekend Update.

We are all monitoring the situation in Ukraine. Reports indicate a Russian invasion is imminent. Russia clearly saw the Biden administration’s disastrous and tragic withdrawal from Afghanistan as an opportunity. Biden is weak, and Vladimir Putin knows it.

Ukraine, like most nations, chooses Democracy and freedom over authoritarian rule. The US and NATO Allies must unite with a definite set of consequences should Russia invade.There is no question the Biden administration has blundered another international crisis. But it may not be too late. If we gain the commitment from Germany to halt the Nordstream pipeline, and remove Russia from the SWIFT, (Society for Interbank Financial Telecommunications), now, Putin may blink. The weakness and poor planning are a telltale for other future Russian aggression as well as China's threats over Taiwan.

Weekly Update - 2.6.22

Good afternoon and welcome to our Weekend Update.

This week, I launched transparency legislation to add additional scrutiny and light to the “midnight express flights” of illegal immigrants being transported from the southern border into our communities. After meeting with the Biden administration about these flights, incredulously, I was told it was a coincidence these flights occurred in the middle of the night without any notification to local elected officials or the communities. Well, I was born at night, but not last night. This administration has no credibility on this issue.

Currently, we don’t know when these flights and bus trips are taking place, the final destination of the illegal immigrants, their criminal records, any health concerns, nor are we preparing the local communities, schools, law enforcement, or health workers for their arrival. The American people deserve better.

Joined by more than 30 of my Republican colleagues, I introduced the Immigration Transparency and Transit Notification Act, which requires the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and Health and Human Services (HHS) to notify the relevant federal, state, and local officials about the transportation, by bus or plane, and placement of illegal immigrants or unaccompanied alien children (UAC) in their sate.

Weekly Update - 1.23.22

Good evening and welcome to our Weekend Update.

This week, we have surpassed the Biden administration’s one-year anniversary in office. And the numbers don’t lie; his administration has been a disaster for hardworking American families.

There are six million Americans unemployed, with ten million unfilled jobs. Biden’s policies incentivize American workers to stay on the sideline rather than join the workforce. Unfilled jobs, inflation, empty grocery store shelves, high gas prices, food prices out-of-control… American families are paying more directly due to the horrific policies of the Biden administration.

Here is the report card:

  • Highest inflation in 40 years
  • Low workforce participation
  • Border crisis
  • Emboldened our adversaries
  • Afghanistan withdrawal disaster
  • Weak Covid response
  • Attempt to federalize elections
  • Big government, budget-busting spending bills
  • Made us dependent on foreign energy sources again

If you were grading Joe Biden and the Democrats, you would have to give them an F.

Good afternoon and welcome to our Weekend Update.

Yesterday, I attended the Republican Party of Pennsylvania’s Central Caucus meeting. They had a full schedule working to interview candidates for U.S. Senate, governor, and lieutenant governor. There are dozens of qualified Republican candidates for these offices, and it is critical to our nation's future that we win these races. (Pictured below with Berks County GOP Chair Clay Breece, U.S. Senate candidate David McCormick, and Dean Klopp)

The Biden administration’s failing policy agenda is killing our nation’s economy… inflation is out-of-control, prices are rising, worker shortages, Covid-19 infections are increasing, and our borders are open. Every time you think it can’t get worse, it does. Biden’s policy agenda continues to veer left, and his response to these failures is to double down and continue to go even farther left.

Good afternoon and welcome to our Weekend Update.

We hope that everyone is enjoying the winter weather and is safe and healthy. It seems appropriate that the cold weather and snow have returned in time for the annual Pennsylvania Farm Show. After being canceled last year, I was pleased to join State Treasurer Stacy Garrity and colleagues Congressmen G.T. Thompson and Fred Keller, Pennsylvania Ag Chair Mike Firestine, U.S. Senate candidate Dave McCormick and many of our friends in Harrisburg today.
