The budget being proposed by the Democrats places the largest tax burden on the American people in history, while still adding $17 trillion to our debt over 10 years. The interest payments alone will be one of our biggest expenditures within a decade.

This budget also allows for your tax dollars to fund abortions, and does nothing to address the crisis on our southern border.

It is critical Biden’s Broken Budget never gets enacted. Congress needs to work to find solutions, not pass the buck with reckless deficit spending that will affect our future generations.

Since being elected, I have been a staunch defender of life and will continue to support legislation that fights for the unborn.

Pro-life Americans will not rest until innocent life is protected from the abortion industry. That is why I am proud to co-sponsor H.R.1011, the Life at Conception Act.

Kansas small businesses are struggling to find people to fill jobs. This is the result of the federal government paying people extra money to stay home.

If we are to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, President Biden and the Democrats need to stop incentivizing people to stay home and instead fill these record number of job openings.

244 years ago today, the American flag was adopted as the symbol of sacrifice, hope, and freedom for our new nation.

Today I'd like to thank everyone who has sacrificed to defend the values represented by our flag.

I had a great time meeting with constituents in Fort Scott. We discussed energy policy, Biden's 30x30 executive order, education, and infrastructure.

Kansans are concerned with Biden's reckless policies. I will continue to fight back against these policies in Washington DC.

President Biden's increased spending and increased taxes are not the only path this country can take.

I'm a proud member of the Republican Study Committee. We have proposed a budget that not only balances the budget, but it reduces spending by $14 trillion over 5 years and reduces the tax burden on American families.

GOP lawmakers blast Dems for ignoring the border crisis for 100 days

Since the day he was sworn in, President Biden has undermined our border security, creating a humanitarian crisis at our Southern border. 100 days ago, my colleagues and I called upon the Democrats on the Oversight Committee to hold hearings on this crisis to take the first steps required to find a solution.

Since then, there have been over 700,000 illegal border crossings and a record number of illegal drugs seized. This is an emergency that must be dealt with immediately, even if that is not politically convenient for the Democrats in power.

Republican lawmakers on the House Oversight Committee blasted the committee Democrats for ignoring their calls to hold a hearing on the crisis at the southern border for 100 days.

Thank you to all who showed up to my town hall in Chanute. We discussed President Biden's trillions of dollars of wasteful spending, and the rising costs of essential goods.

It's clear that across Eastern Kansas, families are concerned about the reckless spending and the effect it will have on the future generations to come.

Services set for Airman, Topeka native killed in accident near Salina

I am heartbroken by the news of the passing of Staff Sergeant Wesley Kubie, a brave Kansas Air National Guardsman who dedicated his life to service.

The men and women of the National Guard are always ready to answer the call to defend our country at a moment’s notice. Wesley sacrificed so much for Kansas and our country, being deployed to Afghanistan from 2019 to 2020 and serving as a training instructor. His death will be felt by many for years to come. Suzanne and I send our prayers and deepest condolences to Wesley’s wife, Abby, and their three children.

Services have been set for the Airman, a Topeka native, who died on Tuesday after a military vehicle accident near Salina.

Speaker Pelosi and the House Democrats have not scheduled a single hearing on the origins of COVID-19, while my Republican colleagues and I are demanding answers.

We need to find out what caused this horrible pandemic instead of sweeping this under the rug.

Kansas National Guard loses Airman to military vehicle crash

Suzanne and I are praying for the family of the Kansas National Guard airman who lost his life yesterday, as well as the two airmen who were injured in a tragic accident.

Their service to our state and nation will not go unnoticed. May God continue to bless these brave men and women and their families who sacrifice for us every single day.

The Kansas National Guard has lost an Airman after a military vehicle crash on Tuesday afternoon.

Unlike Vice President Harris, I have seen what is happening at our southern border and it is truly a crisis.

Authorities are on pace to apprehend 1.35 million illegal immigrants this fiscal year, the most in 20 years.

As a member of the Homeland Security Committee, I am working every day to find solutions and advocate for stronger policies to secure our border and address this crisis.

Biden preps $6T budget that would raise spending to highest level since WWII

In only a few months, President Biden and his radical liberal agenda have weakened our country’s border, caused gas prices to skyrocket, and his proposed budget would only exacerbate these issues.

His budget creates over $17 trillion in new debt over the next 10 years. Kansans cannot afford these extremely wasteful and misaligned policies.

That is why I am fighting to balance our budget and cut government spending to prevent our future generations from paying for the Democrats’ socialist agenda.

The White House is preparing to issue a $6 trillion budget proposal that would put the US at its highest planned spending levels since World War II.

Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower's D-Day Message

"I have full confidence in your courage, devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full Victory!
Good luck! And let us beseech the blessing of Almighty God upon this great and noble undertaking." - General Dwight D. Eisenhower.

77 years ago today, American heroes stormed the beaches of Normandy to protect the world from evil. We must continue to honor the sacrifices they made to guarantee a more safe and free world.

This order was issued by Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower to encourage Allied soldiers taking part in the D-day invasion of June 6, 1944. Almost immediately after F...

What is critical race theory?

Critical race theory is attempting to distort history and corrupt our children’s view of how our incredible nation was founded. It does not belong in our schools.

Our nation’s values and ideals are based on democracy, equality, and individual freedoms. Children should not be indoctrinated into believing that the United States is a racist country.

We need to ensure this anti-American ideology is not forced into our country’s laws or education system.

What exactly is critical race theory? The answer to that question appears to have eluded many as controversial diversity trainings and curricula have swept the nation in recent months.

Patient influx from other states increases Kansas abortions

In the last year, the number of abortions performed in Kansas increased by over 9% due to Governor Kelly deeming abortions as “essential” while shutting down churches and small businesses. Kansas is a pro-life state and this increase in abortions is abhorrent.

I promised my constituents that I would be a staunch defender of life and I will continue to fight for the unborn.

The number of abortions performed in Kansas increased by 9.1% last year.

Biden Budget Plan Would Remove Ban on Federal Funds for Abortion

President Biden’s reckless budget not only includes the largest tax hike in a generation, but also removed the Hyde Amendment, allowing for federal dollars to fund abortions.

This is unacceptable.

I will continue to fight to defend the Hyde amendment and protect those who cannot protect themselves – the unborn.

President Biden’s move fulfills a campaign pledge and sets up a fight in Congress, where most Republicans are opposed to scuttling the 1976 Hyde Amendment.

Scalise leads House GOP in demanding Pelosi direct committee chairs to investigate coronavirus origins

Americans need answers.

Speaker Pelosi and her Democrat colleagues have refused to hold the Chinese Communist Party accountable for its role in the COVID-19 pandemic. It is past time to investigate the origins of the virus that killed over 600,000 Americans.

Read the letter that my fellow Republicans and I sent to Speaker Pelosi urging her to abandon their partisan agenda and get to the bottom of what happened in China.

EXCLUSIVE: House Republican Whip Steve Scalise and more than 200 House Republicans called on Speaker Nancy Pelosi to direct committee chairs to investigate the origins of COVID-19 and devote congressional investigatory resources to examining claims that the novel coronavirus pandemic stemmed from a....

Biden Is Expected to Unveil $6 Trillion Spending Plan

We cannot afford more of President Biden's reckless spending. This is irresponsible.

We are already experiencing rising prices and inflation as a direct result of his policies.

The White House is expected to release President Biden’s first budget proposal Friday, offering new details on how the administration would implement plans over the coming decade to spend $4.5 trillion and increase taxes.

Gas prices in Topeka continue their steady climb, topping $2.90 per gallon mark

President Biden relaunched the war on America’s energy sector, and Kansans are paying the price. Week after week, gas prices continue to rise throughout the state.

We need to return to the energy policies of the Trump administration that finally made our country energy independent.

Gas prices ranged Tuesday morning from $2.55 per gallon to $2.91 per gallon at stations in Topeka.

More than 61,000 migrants released into the US from the border under Biden

Since President Joe Biden took office, "more than 61,000 immigrants who illegally crossed the U.S.-Mexico border have been released into the United States."

The Biden Administration’s reckless policies signal to the world that our immigration laws can be violated with no consequences.

With every day that goes by, President Biden further undermines our border security and the rule of law.

More than 61,000 immigrants who illegally crossed the U.S.-Mexico border have been released into the United States since President Joe Biden took office, according to federal data.
